The Escape Room was the best idea for a company event. They allowed us to use the whole place one hour before they opened to the public. The place is clean, the rooms are impressive. What fun we had, we will be back!!!!

I went with with 7 family members to try the hardest escape challenge. 3 members had been to other escape rooms. We did pretty well and lots of fun! I think 6 people would be the optimal number of players for Esmeralda's Curse. I'm planning on returning with smaller group try the less challenging rooms.

I was unaware when booking for myself and a friend that we would be paired with other groups to make a total of 10 people in the room working on solving this puzzle together. Definitely an interesting observation for Myers-Briggs personality types and group dynamics. It's difficult to solve the puzzle on your own or in your small group with 10 people in the room, and trying as a group with people I'd never met before seemed impossible. So, by the end, I was just watching the rest of the team. (The person who took over as our "group leader," should not have been, and who wants to argue with strangers when you've paid to have a good time?) So, bring your own group of 10; people you know! The room and clues were awesome. I'm pretty sure our group moved through by skipping the solving of one of the clues, however. Someone in the control room gives clues over a speaker if you're off track. It would be nice if that could be an option, because it doesn't feel like an accomplishment if someone is steering you towards a clue. Also, the entrance isn't marked. Both of the doors to the building are windowless and appear to be the kind of doors businesses have for "staff only."

We had a great time. We had 9 people trying to get out. After going through 3 rooms, we still didn't make it but had fun trying.

This was so much fun! I highly recommend this for a group. The staff was great and attentive to what we were doing and not doing for the challenges. We had a group size of 40 people and we were able to get everyone into 4 groups to do the various rooms.

Thanks for taking time to leave a great review. Is there anything we could have done to make it a 5 star experience?

Escape the Room is a well designed concept company. The location is directly off I-75, and convenient. It was very clean. Our host was fantasticly funny and we really enjoyed speaking to him before and after. We escaped from Esmerelda's Curse room. It was a very fun form of thought provoking entertainment, and we enjoyed it very much. My husband and did it with 10 people, which was the room max, and while we had fun, my husband and I both left feeling that the room was overly crowded. At some point we both realized that with so many people there was only so much you could really contribute. There was no way we would have solved the puzzles without teamwork, however I would have enjoyed myself more if I could have been more involved (even without solving it). There were many points that I felt like I was just standing there waiting for the others to do the next puzzle so we could move on. Overall, we want to do it again, but with less participants in the room.

I didn't know what to expect when we scheduled an outing at Escape the Room. It turned out to be really fun and definitely an activity I would repeat. The staff is very friendly and organized. Everything was perfectly on time and well explained. This would be also be fun as a work social activity.

A group of 8 of us went and decided to try Escape the Mob. Our group was 5 kids between the ages of 7 and 15 with 3 adults. The kids were amazing at solving the puzzles with the 7 year old figuring out one of the key pieces!! Great fun and you can Escape if you work together. The hour goes quickly and you can lose track of time. I would highly recommend this for a group of friends, a family or a ladies night out.

My family and I have had the opportunity to do a few of these rooms so have a good comparison to base our review on. The room themes are exciting and have a ton of potential but the actual "working through the room" from one puzzle to another is not as well thought as other rooms we've experienced. Both rooms lack the sequential order and clues to assist escapees in determining what comes next without on-going assistance from the game master, which in our opinion, detracts from the game and fun!

If this is your first escape room experience - don't worry, they get better!
