Impressive! Will be back!
Jan 2019 • Friends
A couple coworkers and I made the trip from Lynchburg (almost two hours away) to play Taken! This was my first visit to Puzzlr, but I’ve played 20+ escape rooms total. Puzzlr is 100% in my top 3 escape room locations!
We escaped in 53 minutes and were VERY impressed with what the creators have come up with! There were several neat tricks implemented throughout the room I had never seen before. We also loved the number of puzzles that required communication between two or more players from opposite sides of the room. The room was overall amazing - kept you thinking from start to end, never left you standing around, and was full of surprises!
The owners are friendly and super passionate about their work! They even gave us recommendations on where to eat afterward. The facility is clean and conveniently located in the downtown area. We will DEFINITELY be back for more!

Loads of fun for 8 friends
Dec 2018 • Friends
My teen son and his 7 friends had a great time competing. Four were in one room and Four in another, and each group raced to get out first. The staff was extremely helpful and patient (I called at least 6 times over 4 days with various questions and requests). This is the third time my son has gone with various friends, and everyone in the group always enjoys themselves. I'm sure they'll be back to do the 4th room in the future.

Would have been fun but....
Jul 2018 • Business
We went to Puzzlr as part of a team building event for work. The rooms were typical themes, but it is always interesting to see the different takes. Anyway, the room my team was in had a nice mix of low tech and high tech and the puzzles were interesting. However, wires were obvious to a lot of the tech. But the whole reason I am disappointed is that a critical tool to solving the puzzle was inside a cabinet that was supposed to freely open with no locks, but was damaged so it wouldn't. We did not escape because of this. When we told the owner that we couldn't open the cabinet because it was damaged he seemed unconcerned that his lack of maintenance cost us a chance to win. You basically had to break the "no force required to open" rule to win. It almost seemed like he was blaming us that the cabinet was damaged. Also, the hint button either didn't work or wasn't monitored. We lost about 10 minutes waiting for our first hint. He did throw in some bonus hints later though. Bottom line is that I will play other operators in the region before I come back to this one for a second room.

I’m not a puzzle person, but this was a really fun activity for a work retreat. We will now all have something to talk about.

Enjoyed our afternoon, but we are still pretty sure we could’ve escaped if one of the clues had worked (the staff had to enter our room during our time to fix the broken clue).

Really great activity!

Loads of fun
May 2018 • Friends
Myself and a couple of friends went to the Puzzlr during our time hanging out in Downtown Blacksburg. We were put with another group of people for the "Taken" puzzle. We had an absolute blast working to escape this very challenging room! Would definitely recommend to anyone that likes a fun challenge.

Fun evening in town while visiting the college kids
Apr 2018 • Family
Two families were in town, it was snowing (shocking) and we decided to try out the local escape rooms. We did the Heist and had a great time. The puzzles were a combination of the standard padlocks with some really inventive electronic and other ones we had not seen. We needed all three hints, but we made it with 5 minutes to spare! It is a good way to spend an evening.

Great fun, unique experience
Apr 2017 • Friends
Went to Puzzlr with a group of four and got matched up with another group of four for the taken puzzle. It was fun and had several twists and turns, lasted almost the full hour. Other group seemed intoxicated and slightly took away from the experience but it was overall interesting and entertaining. Would recommend to a friend and go again myself. They are planning to slowly open up new rooms for more adventures.

Puzzlr, Blacksburg Escape Room ... Excellent!
Mar 2017 • Friends
Our family has been to several escape rooms in 3 different states. This one was really fun and the price is excellent, especially since it's in a college town. We had 2 adults, 2 college students, and one elementary aged child with us when we tried their 'Taken' room. This particular room is my favorite of the 7 rooms we've ever done because the puzzles were the most like the online escape rooms (Diamond/emerald/sapphire games) that I've ever encountered. Although "Taken" was a bit creepy, the challenge and cleverness made up for it.
We also did the other room (I'm forgetting the title but it was a spy mystery where the detective dies and you have to pick up his case and solve it).
Staff were friendly and professional. Waiting room games were fun, as were the after pictures!
I definitely recommend this escape room. I'd say it's great for ages 10 and up, (ymmv), and I look forward to new puzzles at this location. At least 4 players recommended, less than that could make gathering all the clues and solving them in the hour timeframe a challenge.
