My husband and I take our 6 grandkids out for a day in December. For years it was to see The Grinch in Balboa Park, this year we thought they had outgrown that play. So we decided to try an escape room. Thank you to all for the wonderful reviews of The House of Hints!! We all had so much fun! All the grandkids really had a good time..ages....21, 15, 13, 13, 11, and 10. We split into 2 groups and did The Detention Room so we could race each other. Great team work experience. Staff was fantastic!

My guy & I are huge fans of Escape rooms. Everywhere we travel, we do a few and being from San Diego, we've done quite a few here. House of Hints truly went the extra mile for us because they helped my (now) fiance propose! We came in to complete The CSI Lab and apparently, my fiance and the employees had already had plans well underway. They asked if we'd like to come back next week and do the Pawn Shop room and we agreed. The Pawn Shop room was the game in which he actually proposed and the owner had customized the room to our relationship (without me knowing. "Look, Otters!") Regardless of my fiance using the room to propose, each was incredibly well-done. The CSI Lab was so much fun and Pawn Shop was a blast. The hints are well-done and at times, hilarious, and the moderators were a lot of fun. I highly recommend each of these rooms and House of Hints. Absolutely one of the best break out rooms we've each participated in. Thank you to the entire team for the perfect proposal!

I went with my company for our Christmas party. My whole group had never done this before (there were 8 of us.) We had so much fun. It was nice working as a team. We did Pawn Shop and there was a great story to start you off and what you needed to find within the hour of being there. The woman who was in charge of our group was great! It's good for all ages and it's not scary for the young ones. I, personally, want to go again and do a different room with family and friends.

Thank you for your great review! Best part is how much fun you had. That's what it's all about! Now that you have tackled the Pawnshop, have you decided which game you will play next? (Just so you know, they are all fun.) Look forward to see you again! The Crew at House of Hints

From the very first phone call with this company, we had a GREAT experience. The overall process for booking was very easy even calling the day before. Jill was so willing to accommodate our requests to have 6 or 7 people involved. Once we arrived, the helpfulness of the staff continued. We have done other Escape Rooms in other towns and this is our favorite. We loved how they used a monitor to give us hints that were very specific to the individuals in the room as well as to what we were doing. We had kids ages 10, 13 and 15 years-old, and they were as involved as the adults. We did High School Detention which was a lot of fun even when we had to do a little dance to get the lights back on. Highly recommend this Escape Room :-)

Got a group of 6 together to take on their most popular escape room called CSI (Crime Scene Investigation). This was our third escape room this year and have yet to escape out of one. This was our first escape out of the house of hints. I highly recommend this game as it was fun and really challenging. We honestly couldn't have escaped without hints from the moderator. We managed to escape with a few minutes left on the clock. If looking for something fun to do with a group which is challenging for your mind, I would highly recommend this escape room. They have near perfect reviews on yelp as well.

Hi Jonathan! Thank you for the positive review. Glad that you were able to play CSI, especially since it is soon to be retired. Now, what shall we replace it with ... ??? Look forward to see you again soon. Have you decided which game to tackle next? Perhaps, Pawnshop?!? Enjoy the new year, The Crew at House of Hints
