We had a great time at Padlock. It was our second time at Padlock and we have done several escape rooms in other towns. Staff was super helpful and friendly. We did the study room and the puzzles were great. It was rated difficult and we almost got out, had the last part of the final puzzle to determine.

Friendly staff and reasonable prices for an escape room. The room follows a logical progression for an escape room and provided enough challenges to keep us engaged and wasn’t so difficult as to cause us to give up in frustration. Overall great experience!

This was a very fun and unique experience! It's about time College Station had something fun to do for people of all ages. Kids, adults, undergraduate & graduate students can have fun here.
I've never been one to really go out to Northgate, the bar scene gets old, quick.. But, there isn't much else to do in College Station for fun, unless you want to wander aimlessly around the tiny mall, or go be packed like sardines into the only bowling alley around. I suppose you could always go see a movie, but there is zero human interaction involved in that. Padlock Escape Games is the perfect alternative and is so much fun.
I loved Padlock Escape Games. A friend and I booked a room with 6 strangers. We thought it might be weird trying to cooperate and solve the puzzles with strangers, but it actually ended up being a lot of fun! Everyone should give this place a shot at least once, but since they have 2 different rooms you should really try it at least twice.
Plus all you college students, it's an Aggie owned and operated business, and as good Ags we really ought to go support our fellow Aggies!

This was my second escape room, and I was very disappointed compared to the first one I did in Arlington. I will start by saying the facility was clean, in a decent part of town, the staff was friendly, and the price was very reasonable. My boyfriend and I took his parents while they were visiting since we had such a good time at the first one we did a few weeks ago. We did the Murder Mystery Masquerade, and the clues in this room had nothing to do with the theme. The room was very linear, and it was difficult to do with 9 people. There was not enough to keep everyone busy, and we were often waiting for someone to finish one step before we could go on to another step. I found the standing around waiting very frustrating. I wish the clues had been more connected to the theme, and I wish there had been more than just opening locks and figuring out math problems.

Thank you for the compliments about our location, staff, and pricing. We think our staff is wonderful and that they do a great job getting everyone excited for their experience! We're sorry to hear you didn't have a 5 star experience. Overall, there is only one way to escape the room, so it is definitely linear in the sense that all things eventually lead you to that goal. However, there are several times when more than one puzzle can be worked on at once. I am sorry that your group did not experience this and that you were frustrated instead. We will have to disagree about the variety of puzzles that we have in our room and their relationship to the theme of the room. We do have combination locks involved as part of the game, but there are many other types of locks, game elements, surprises, and thematic elements that make our rooms fun and unique. We use more than just letter and number codes to make our games fun and exciting. Thank you again for the feedback and we hope you can come visit one of our other rooms in the future so we can earn that 5 star review from you!

It was a great experience when you solved a step, but hard and need more clues. Made us feel like we were in a TV show, like law and order and CSI combined. Plus we needed another hour and some smarter people.

We had a group of 6 people. We had never done this so we weren't sure what to expect. The young man that gave all the rules and instructions did a very good job. Once in the room it took us a while to figure out how to start but we finally got it going. You can gets hints when the light comes on, I highly recommend them. After our hour was up the employee came in and walked us through some of the puzzle without letting us know the solution. I would highly recommend this place. It was fun, clean and very thought provoking. We found out after we finished we had picked the hardest room, and we got more than 50% of the way solved.

It's always great to hear how wonderful our game facilitators are. We know it, but the positive feedback from escapees is the best kind! We will pass this along to our team. Hopefully you can have another great experience with us in the future!

This was such a fun experience! Of the 7 people in my group, only 1 had done an escape room before, and we all had a blast! The staff provided helpful clues to us when we needed them so we were able to successfully make our way out of the room with less than five minutes to spare! It was definitely a difficult challenge but we had an excellent time and I absolutely want to do this again! Well done!

I visited Padlock this past weekend, and I cannot recommend it highly enough. My mother and I were put in the Secret Study room with another group. Having more minds paid off as we set the weekly record for escape time! Having been to several other escape games in the past, I was surprised by how challenging the room was. We really had to rely on each other's strengths to finish together. The room itself was decorated beautifully and used many different forms of technology to create secret locks and triggers. I liked that there was a timer on the wall so we could keep close track of our time remaining. Our operator as well as the owners were welcoming and easy to talk to. I will definitely be coming back!

Who knew you could fail so miserably yet still have a blast? Tip: be observant, think outside the box and bring friends along. You only have a hour so work together. This place is awesome!
