The puzzles and production quality are superb and the experience was immersive. Nice attention to details down to the circa 1920's elevator music. We drove over an hour to do the adventure and it was very much worth the drive. We will be back to do try the other rooms soon.

9pm on a Saturday night, my family and I headed up the staircase in a very old building. The guide actually explained very little before the five of us were locked in a darkened control room. The doors were locked--some with multiple locks, and there were strange clues and objects scattered around the room. A countdown clock set to 60 minutes was hard to ignore. We removed the locks and broke into the adjoining rooms, where there were more clues and more locks. I had to use the walkie-talkie to ask for hints, and we solved a number of puzzles, but we were still locked in when the time ran out. Everyone had a great time--my grown children solved puzzles as well as (or better than) the older folks. I want to go back!

My 7th grader went once before ("Fantasy Wonderland") and had so much fun he begged to go back. This time we had two adults, two 7th graders, and one 5th grader (10 years old, the minimum age allowed). We had an absolute blast from start to finish ("Prison Break").

The staff was incredibly helpful, and the puzzles were perfectly balanced - there were some the kids got, some the adults got, some that were easy, and some that stumped us. We genuinely can't wait to go back again and we want to bring all our friends.

Some tips I'd give people: 1) Enjoy the story and ambiance of the game too; 2) It's easy to over-think things; 3) You can miss stuff if you're shouting over each other, so try not to (it's really hard); 4) Don't waste a lot of time stumped on one thing. We didn't regret calling in our hints.

I think this is an excellent activity for a mix of adults and older kids. The kids think outside the box well, and will often climb onto or poke at something the adults would've overlooked, while the adults are usually far more apt at slowing down long enough to think something through or remember something from earlier.

One lovely surprise was how much the staff was willing to talk about the games in general, how nice they were to the kids, and the amount they were pulling for you to solve the puzzles.

The location is tiny, and the "production value" is on par with nice stage props (the prison bars were really metal, and felt substantial). It's not a huge place, and it's not fancy, but it is a ton of fun.

Another note - I've heard that the Dream Catchers room is a little creepy, but I can vouch that neither Prison Break nor Fantasy Wonderland are frightening. There's not a chained-up monster or other spooky thing in the room with you, like you might have seen on TV. It's much more puzzle than scare. I wanted to make sure people knew that, because that's what made us hesitate to go the first time. You're on your own in the room. It's introvert-friendly (well, introvert-who-can-get-together-three-other-introverts).

Final note: from our experience, five was a really nice number. I think six might be even better, but I have a hunch that eight would be a bit much.

We went to this escape room tonight and although we laughed a lot it was really hard and frustrating! We obviously didn’t have a puzzle mind 😂😂😂 All in all we had a really great time.

After our group successfully completed other escape rooms on the Eastside, I was so looking forward to this Egypt room. Unfortunately the puzzles and locks weren't fun and the guy giving hints was insulting "I guess I have to hold your hand through this." Not even an offer of a fun photo, nothing! I was so disappointed! I am not interested in trying their other rooms and I don't recommend this to my fellow Microsoft teams as a morale event.

I played this room with 6 other people. When we first entered the room I was thinking wow.... the room was done well and I really felt emerged in the story. The puzzles were engaging and a lot of fun. Our group was able to figure them out all pretty quickly and we felt pretty good....giving each others high fives!

Then...we entered the second room. This is the coolest part of the whole experience. This room is visually stunning. One of the coolest layouts of a room I have seen. Then panic hit as this room is huge with puzzle after puzzle after puzzle. I was like OK where do we start? You definitely need to split up your group if you want any chance to escape this room. The puzzles were very challenging. Don't let that deter you because once you complete a puzzle the payoff is huge which makes this room awesome.

This is definitely a great alternative for team events, I will bring my team back for other quests they have.

Being an engineer who likes puzzles, I've always been searching for good real-life room escape games among different cities. FLEE is a new addition to the Seattle area and I started falling in love with the design, atmosphere, and the wonderful immersive experience since my first visit. They offer 5 different rooms, each with different themes and difficulties. The experience were so well crafted and it is totally different from paper/math puzzles made into real life. Instead, you'll see all sort of puzzles, tricks, devices (sorry I really want to say further, but I don't want to spoil your fun) which you would need everything you can find from the room to help you escaping.

Being one of the first visitors I've tried 4 out of 5 rooms and there are multiple times I found myself just wowed for how smart the puzzle design is. I came with different group of friends each time and everyone has different level of problem solving skills. Surprisingly or unsurprisingly, everyone is having fun and everyone ended up enjoying a great sense of achievement (even for the rooms we didn't manage to finish). The whole process takes one hour, so even if you are visiting Seattle, it is a place which worth your time, and you won't find it disappointing.

Oh last but not least, I found escaping room is a perfect team building event for friends or teams who look to build trust. The whole group need to collaborate, each contributes to their best and eventually made an escape from a locked room. It is awesome, isn't it?

The atmosphere and ambiance of the room was very immersive. We did the prison room, and it was the first room we've done where they actually split you up and you have to help each other escape from your respective jail cells. It was very fun and there were some unique puzzles we'd never seen before. Our group of 7 escaped with 25 minutes to spare and had so much fun doing it! Would love to go back and try one of their other rooms!

We are not experts at escape rooms, but we have done a handful. This was a really fun time, though one or two of the challenges were not especially intuitive (it is for this reason that I'm docking a single star). It was thematic, exciting, and a (mostly) well-designed puzzle!

This room is so to theme, very cool spell effects. The staff are super helpful and friendly. Our group were all noobs and even though it was a harder room that we sid not rscape we had a great time. Each section has easy to hard puzzles that keep you trying and not getting too discouraged. At the end you get the option of 1/2 off a return visit to try again on a fail or a tour right then of rest of room. Very cool.
