    Family vacation tradition
    We do escape rooms whenever we can on our family vacations. We've heard good things about this place and they didn't disappoint. We had such a good time. Luke was a great gamemaster! He made it really fun. We'll be back to conquer the other rooms soon!

    Definite number 1 escape game must do
    OMG top notch great, exciting, unique, and lots of excitement. Visiting with family from SOUTH Carolina and had to try out this escape game. We did the cabin and it did not disappoint. One first timer with us and we escaped. Woo hoo. It was so good that we booked another room for later that day.

    Loved it the 1st time, escaped the 2nd time!
    We had a great time when we tried our hand at Midnight Manor a few weeks ago, so we came back for a second attempt at escaping. I was really impressed and intrigued by the puzzles and mechanisms, as well as the story. I loved that the game masters stayed in character throughout the game, from the point where they let us into the waiting room to when they said goodbye when we left. There was one technical difficulty, but the game master communicated with us and quickly figured out a solution so we could continue. I bought a passport to keep a record of my experiences. We’ll definitely be returning to Escape Hour Gig Harbor again!

    Fantastic experience!
    Great time completing the Curse of the Mayan Ruins room. Two of us were seasoned escape room connoisseurs and two were doing it for the first time. Even having done over a dozen rooms elsewhere the challenges were fresh and new. Lots of locks. Our game master Kenzie gave just the right amount of help and time updates. Would recommend to anyone (4 really is the minimum number of players if you want to escape in time). We can’t wait to do more!

    Best Escape Room experience ever!!
    We have loved Escape Hour Gig Harbor! We hsve done five of the rooms and made the best memories. We are moving away and will miss our family adventures here. The team is absolutely wonderful. Our last game master was Kenzie, and she was amazing. She even changed the scary music for our younger member. I recommend this escape room to all of my family and friends.

    The cabin
    Escape hour was phenomenal! Hailey our game master was very helpful throughout the whole experience, would definitely go back again with family, although I would love them to expand their business in the puyallup area! Highly recommend their escape rooms.

    Hilarious Horror Experience
    Really fun and jumpy experience. The details of the room is nice. Puzzle was either easy or hard in our experience. Highly recommend trying it out this month before you miss it. Overall 10/10

    As we walked up to the door, we could hear the previous team raving about what a great experience they had. From the time we walked in the door, the employees were completely in character. At first I thought it was a little corky but really appreciated how involved they were in the customers experience as it went on. Even when we needed help, it was just enough to keep our confidence up to keep solving the next clue. Amazing story line of progressing clues. The mystery rooms are well constructed and detailed with interactive features. I’m shocked to hear how often they rebuild to create a new experience. Now we want try each new room as they update. Nice job Escape Hour. Great experience!!!

While on vacation, we booked an escape room because my husband and son love them. We choose Escape Hour because we were staying in the area and did not want to drive all the way into Seattle. We all loved the first one so much that we ended up booking the other 2 rooms that were available. They were all really well done, but the Cabin was by far the best and the live actor really enhanced the experience. My husband has done around 50ish escape rooms and the Cabin is his second favorite of all time (and he is not a horror fan). That is high praise from him. The game masters were all fantastic (Luke, Mia and I am so sorry but I forgot the name of our game master for the Mayan Ruins). They all stayed in character while giving hints and how they gave hints all seemed part of the storyline, which was something new for us. I highly recommend any of their rooms, but especially The Cabin.

My sister surprised my husband and I with tickets for Christmas. This was his and my first escape room. I do not think that young children would find success in these without adult supervision, being that they require some intense problem-solving under pressure (70 minutes). My advice for those looking to do one is have a 3-person group minimum. There was 1 task we had to do that we almost couldn't due to the lack of hands. But it worked out! We won with 23 seconds to spare! Haley was our supervisor (I hope I spelled her name correctly) of Theradonia. She did an amazing job and I believe her presence is what made our experience more fun and enjoyable. She was not only passionate about the mythology, but gave perfectly helpful hints during the process. Her cheerful attitude towards the experience of an escape room brings out the best in its customers. I believe that that is the second most important part of its fantasy, next to the story itself. The set is also believable, as to not feel misplaced in such a fantastical story. The decorum, props, and musical audio presents the setting accurately. When you enter you not only feel like you're participating in an escape room, but also temporarily escaping reality in and of itself. 5/5 ♡

As soon as we were shown the door to Legend of Theradonia, the adventure began. Our team was 6 players age ranges were as young as 11 up to 73 & we all had an amazing time, barely making it out with seconds left.

The room decor was immersive! The puzzles told a story guiding you & everything worked as it should. You can tell a lot of time & thought goes into the experience.

The staff was friendly & helpful, we are excited to return!

My husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary doing this escape room. My husband has never done one however, I have done 3 different ones with our oldest son so, I knew Basic tricks and how hidden clues weren't always what you think they might mean. Mia was a great hostess and explained things very clearly and easily understandable.
We got out with 48 seconds remaining. It was definetly a victory that required team work and for people our age (44/49) stamina. Crawling on our knees in the tiny crawl space was difficult for us due to knee surgeries and such, so if you can't crawl on your knees or if small enclosed spaces make you nervous, I would suggest picking another room to play.
Aside from that, this was incredibly fun and mind challenging. We had a great time. Mia e planned everything and was very good in her acting abilities. From the moment she poked her head out the door to bring us in until the moment we walked out the door an hour later, she never broke character once. She made this experience so fun. It was interactive and there were moments of being startled by "No Face" making his precense known.
If you pick this room, be prepared for going up and down steps multiple times, crawling on your knees in small compact spaces (more than once) and being put in pitch black darkness from the start.
All in all, we'd give Mia and the whole experience a 10 out of 10. So much so, that we will be traveling the 2+ hours to come back and try their other rooms in the very near future.

We had a blast in the Mayan Ruins escape room! Our game master Haley (sp?) was freaking incredible and awesome! We felt like she was on the expedition with us. The hints and the way she worded them fit with the theme perfectly. The lighting, sounds and room design was top notch and the puzzles blew us away… we felt like we were living in an Indiana Jones movie. The ending was climactic and rewarding, and beautifully moving which caught me by surprise.
We knew what our goal was through the entire experience, and felt overjoyed when we succeeded!
I’d recommend this room to anyone looking for a fun escape room adventure. We’re excited to come back and try the other rooms when we’re back in Seattle again next year!

Our family went here to celebrate my mom's birthday and it was an amazing experience. We did one of the scarier rooms where we explored in a dark area with actors and it was a perfect balance of puzzles, fun and scares. Would definitely recommend ,all of us talking on the way home were ecstatic with the experience. Huge props to Jeremy for being such a great gamemaster, providing such a memorable and enjoyable first time experience. His care and obvious passion absolutely helped immerse us and hook us into the reality.

We came into this Mayan Mystery adventure with little knowledge of how these escape rooms would work other than what we had seen on tv. The puzzles to solve weren't too difficult, but were challenging enough to add a level of excitement. The staff members were very helpful and even provided great content through their roleplay. I don't think we would have made it out without Kenzie's help :) we can't wait to do it again and try all of the room experiences!

It was a perfect surprise Christmas gift from my boyfriend and his family! It was just challenging enough for 4 of us and we had 26 seconds to spare until the time was up. We all had a blast and would highly recommend this escape room. Leah, our "tour guide" was a lot of fun, very professional and helpful, and provided a great atmosphere. Will be going back to try other escape rooms from Escape Hour Gig Harbor.

This was hands down the best escape room we have been to, and we have played in quite a few over the years. The haunted cabin had live actors playing along and added such a fun and scary twist to the typical keys and padlocks. Haley was out GM and she did a wonderful job.
