Brain teasing fun.
Jan 2021
This was our first time doing an escape room and it was lots of fun! Staff are very friendly and helpful when needed, otherwise, you are left to your own whits to escape. It wasn’t easy, but it was a lot of fun.

So. Much. Fun!
Jan 2020
I've been twice now and had a wonderful experience both times. As promised, it was challenging. It wasn't scary. And the time flew by! The first time, I went with folks who had done escape rooms before, and we only needed hints twice. The second time, I was with a group who'd never done escape rooms, and we needed quite a bit more help. :-) But, the staff was very helpful (though sometimes, it was hard to hear their hints via the camera/speaker in the room) and encouraging! Can't wait to go back!

Good Escape Room
Dec 2019
We have done almost 30 escapes rooms, so we usually are looking for a challenge. We did the Sherlock room because it had the lowest escape rate. It was a good room and had at least one puzzle style that we had not seen before. Most of the puzzles were the same or similar to others that we have seen in other escape rooms.
The staff was nice, and the overall experience was good, but it lacked the wow factor for our group.

This escape room was great. It was not my first one but it was the best one I’ve done yet. Very interactive and challenging enough that It wasn’t easy but still fun. Will definitely go back for the other rooms.

Challenging and Fun!
Oct 2019 • Friends
I have now completed the Sherlock and the Heist at Room 5280. Both were on the more challenging side of escape rooms BUT the staff made the experience worth it! Andrew is kind, patient and accommodating; everything you could want in a host. The puzzles really make you think out of the box. I will be back!

Dark Room was Brilliant
Aug 2019
We were a group of four. I am 55 and I was with 3 twenty-somethings. We did the Dark Room. This was my 24th escape room. Last time I was in Raleigh I did The Experiment. Like The Experiment, Dark Room had some unusual puzzles (much appreciated by those like me who wish to try something new). The theming was crisp, just enough spooky and difficult enough to make it interesting. One trend in escape rooms is more and more red herrings, which do not add to the challenge. I was pleased to see that the owner isn't following the trend. There were puzzles requiring teamwork and the "kick yourself" moment with another puzzle. Again, it's hard to find such delights when you've done multiple rooms. Congratulations to 5280 for working hard to keep it fresh.

The space was large enough for our group of four and there were several clever surprises. I am sad that I only have "Sherlock" left at 5280 because I would return to this place every time I'm in Raleigh. The owner is engaging and committed. The rooms are well-themed and smart. I wish everyone would try 5280 and skip the chains. If you want to become addicted to escape rooms, The Dark Room is the place to start. I loved it.
