We went on a double date with my sister and brother in law and it was all four of our first times ever trying the Escape Room! The staff were extremely friendly and energetic and very helpful during our panic moments in the room

I brought my sister and her family visiting from out of state for all of our first time to Escape Now. We were doing really well and thought we would actually escape out of the Sherlock room since we had only two clues left to go, but one of the clues you had to match something and "the items" were not properly colored on the top to match so we could not go forward. I hope the company at the North Houston location fixes this (as we also told them about this) so others can have a better chance than 32% to escape. We also felt that one of the last clues we did not get was something only people can get by the employee telling them after the session is over and you go back to do it again and get it. Other than that, we had a wonderful time and hope to try another room.

Played the school room with my friends. Made us feel like we were back in high school. We only had a few minutes remaining when we entered the correct code to escape. We had to do it three times, the door would not open. The operator had to come in and tell us it was the right code just the door would not open, so we Technically escaped. It was fine in the moment cause we all just laughed it off. We took our team photo but it was never posted on the Facebook page, he said it would only take 30mins. I get things mess up so we weren’t super mad. Maybe it was just an off night, but I was just a little disappointed from such great reviews.

We have done escape rooms in the past so we were excited about this one as a family. We do not recommend this escape room. $25 per person and you’ll leave frustrated. We were told 25% of people escape the Super Hero theme escape room. We didn’t get out so the employee walked us through the steps needed to escape. After shown how to escape, we found it very hard to believe 25% got out. The steps to get out are ridiculous. I recommend the escape room downtown; it’s challenging yet a lot of fun. We didn’t get out of the downtown escape room because we missed some things. This escape room left all of us shocked at the level of difficulty. Absolutely not for youth under the age of 18.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We try to strike a balance between rooms being too easy for escape room enthusiasts and not too difficult for those inexperienced in escape games. We have found this room to be good fit for families and I'm sorry that we did not meet your expectations. Please feel free to reach out to mike@escapenowhouston.com if you would like to discuss your concerns in more detail.

The Sherlock Holmes escape room was, so far, the most innovative one we have done. We all loved it. Also we pay high compliments to the "room master". His instructions were very detailed and clear, but pay attention! This is a great place to take visitors but the party does need some sharp adults in its midst. Therein is your challenge👨‍🎓🕵️‍♀️👩‍🎓🤓

The Sherlock room was beyond expectation. As Sherlock Holmes fans we were able to Geek Out while having a great time. This was our first visit, and didn't know what to expect, but we were unable to stop talking about it the rest of the night!! The puzzles were very ingenious and the types and levels varied, keeping it interesting the whole time. We are already making plans to come back for the Chocolate Factory room. Many thanks to the staff, (shout out to James), for running such a great business!

This was not my first escape room experience so my opinion may possibly be somewhat biased. This venue did not match the quality of entertainment that my previous escape room experience did. The concept was cool but the rooms were too small for as many people as they allow in there. Also there were not near as many hands-on props as the one I had done before. There weren't near as many puzzles and a lot of time was wasted on the few puzzles they had. It really felt like they made the puzzles very difficult to accommodate the lack of depth. My impression was that the flow only accommodated a group of 2-3 rather than 7-10. It wasn't bad but definitely wasn't great. Overall I would have rather spent the money elsewhere.

We went to Escape Now with family and friends last night. We did the Willy Wonka chocolate factory room. It was so much fun and very challenging ! I can't wait to go back and attempt the Sherlock Holmes room! I highly recommend booking with a group of your family and friends! It's so interesting to see how we all worked together to solve the riddles! The teenagers were great at it!
