We've done several different escape rooms over the years, and I found our room (Holy Grail) to be refreshingly original - no combination locks, only one master lock. Clever mechanisms in their place, particularly the final puzzle. I also enjoyed the hint system - you get three hints and you need to officially ask for them. This prevents overzealous game runners, which we've had problems with at other locations, and the limited number of hints puts you in control of how you use them, while also allowing you to fail - more of a challenge this way. Would definitely go again

We did 2 rooms back to back. Return from Wonderland and Time Siege. Good puzzles, simple sets, and good linear games. As a wheelchair party I look at things differently. I called ahead and was told all was good...BUT.
Alice in Wonderland could not get from one room to another and had to wait til third room before I could join them. The second is designed where long narrow passage and no good way to navigate that or ANY others rooms. It was so bad, Brandon, our cool and helpful guide asked my family to hand me a piece since he was trying to give me things to do. (Family was deep in another area as I was stuck in original passage.) Thanks Brandon

My wife and I did all four games here, and they were great. We particularly like Holy Grail and Time Siege! The games were very original with puzzles we haven’t seen before (and my wife and I have done over 450 rooms). We particularly enjoyed talking with the owner, Jaren, about the games and puzzles afterwards. We strongly recommend playing all the games here!!

We returned to REW a couple years after our first visit. It’s worth noting they’re under new management and ownership. The new team has really turned this place around and made dramatic improvements to the overall experience.
Experiment 1215 offered a unique twist that we hadn’t seen before. Both experienced gamers and first timers are sure to love this twist (can’t elaborate without spoiling).
The immersion and the puzzles make this room well worth the visit. We’ll be back to try their others!

Needed an activity out of the heat during our vacation in July to Williamsburg. This was a super fun family activity. The Staff here were very nice. We had such a good time playing we were not upset that we did not succeed in our mission. Was still hot the next day so we went back and did 2 more rooms. This time we were successful. Highly recommend this escape room. Lots of fun was had!

Save your money and go to Operation Escape in Williamsburg. Taylor was amazing, but the man working (long beard with grey in it) was rude and ruined our children’s experience.
This was my youngest son’s first escape room experience and after the way we were treated he said he HATES escape rooms.
Operation Escape has much better story lines and the decor in the rooms are amazing. We will go back there to try to redeem my youngest son’s experience.

This was a great escape to Wonderland. It was just three of us and we had a blast. We were two clues away from escaping.

This must be a couple of gamers that decided to open a business, but unfortunately, but their planning skills have not geled and it is not very professional.

We wasted almost 20 minutes looking for the first clue, which is normally a cryptic note or puzzle to solve. We couldn't find anything leading us to a clue and when we finally asked for help, we were directed to the lab coat which held a key to our next clue. Too bad the key never existed (yes, we checked the lab coat numerous times before asking for help). They had to stop the game and bring us the key!

That set the tone for the remainder of our game. Luckily, we were able to continue and almost made it a successful ending, but time ran out.

Many better escape rooms out there, you can pass on this one.

Hello Sue, Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that the reset by our GM was not up to par and ruined the experience for you. We will continue to strive for the best experience for everyone.

We were visiting Williamsburg for our 5 year anniversary. We found Room Escape through a Google search, and were not disappointed. We went Thursday for Holy Grail, and then ended up coming back for 2 more games on Friday (The List and Wonderland).

Our group of 15 year olds experienced room escape this weekend, and had a great time! This was their first time in an escape room so we chose the easiest room. They still had to work through a lot of clues and got out shortly before the hour was up. They will definitely return for a different room. Staff was great and extremely accommodating!
