After doing 94 escape rooms, I was not sure what I would get being this was my first time at Escape This. Well they had some really near clues that I had not seen before. I enjoyed the maffia room. The owner was super nice to our group of 7. I will have to go back and check out the other 4 rooms. Here are some things I noticed, the hints were well thought out. The clues went in a nice linear puzzle path. There were nice decorations as well.

We had a blast at this place! Alex the owner was incredible and super accommodating. Our group was in town for the weekend for a family event and we decided last minute to play this escape room. We first signed up for the crime scene room but we were able to switch to the mafia room. The room was very clean and the staff was great with giving us helpful hints to redirect us when we were getting further from the solution, but the hints weren't excessive enough to ruin anything. We had a great time, and we were able to finish with 2 minutes left. Overall thought it was a great experience with super thought out rooms that were fun to execute. I wish we were in town longer to do more rooms! Thanks for such a fun time!

My wife and I did all five rooms here and really enjoyed them. The owners (Molly and Matthew) were friendly and spent some time talking with us about their games. We strongly recommend doing all the games here!

If you haven't tried an Escape Room before...or even if you have...this is a great place to go to. Several challenging rooms are available. Great ambiance, good back stories, and very engaging. Highly recommended!

We came this afternoon and did the Mob boss room, very well put together and the puzzles are fun to figure out. The owner Alex explained everything very well in the beginning. We had a great time and highly recommend!

This was my first time at Escape This in Frederick, but I've done other escape rooms in the area. The group I was with have all done plenty of escape rooms and we can be pretty harsh judges of poorly designed rooms. Escape This was very impressive! The owner was super nice and chatted with us before and after we did the room in a way that made us really feel like he cared about his business.

The room itself (Haunted) looked great, had really neat puzzle elements, good use of technology, and the game flowed really smoothly. Haunted is apparently one of the more challenging rooms, so we did have to use our hints to finish, but I never felt frustrated or confused. Some escape rooms add puzzles and locks that make no sense or end up becoming more frustrating than fun, but that never happened here. I look forward to coming back and trying the other rooms!

First time doing an escape room and we had the most welcoming experience at Escape This! The room was challenging and fun and the staff was kind, attentive, and made us feel welcomed. I look forward to returning and trying other rooms in the future!

First time doing an escape room, and it had me hooked! Did the haunted room first, and it was amazing! Ended up doing CSI after. Loved all the puzzles. The staff was great, very friendly! Will definitely be back to do the other rooms!

I typically don't go out of my way to review places unless my experience was either really bad or really great, and this was definitely really GREAT. I came here to celebrate my birthday on a Friday night with a group of mixed aged adults (35-55) and we did the Haunted room. My first impression when I walked in was how clean the lobby was, with nice comfortable chairs and sofas to wait on. The employee who greeted us was friendly and enthusiastic and it definitely gave the impression of a professional operation. The bathrooms were also very clean and had classy, scented hand soap. The room itself was incredibly clean (can you tell that cleanliness is important to me?) and well-decorated. I could tell that a lot of time and care and expense went into creating this room and making the experience as authentic as possible and not hokey. I could also tell that a lot of care and thought went into the clues. We had so much fun figuring out the puzzles and figuring out what went where. I loved how interactive the room was and how when we'd figure something out, something in the room would happen. The employees were also clearly paying attention to us and what we were doing because when we asked for clues we promptly received one. We had a group of 5, and as the room was fairly small, I found that 5 was a great number, and I think a group of 4-6 would be ideal. Any more than that and I think it would have been a little cramped.

We were in the 28% of people who solved it! This room really challenged us so I think it's geared more towards adults or clever older children/teens and not younger kids.

We are already talking about when we can all go back next!

My family and I went here for my daughter's birthday. She is 8 and saw an escape room on one of her shows that she watches so she wanted to do one since her mother and I did it for a date night. We did the same room so we could help them figure things out. We did the Haunted one and they loved it! I highly recommend visiting Escape This Frederick as it is a new, fun thing to do in town and they are already looking to expand even with 4 rooms already available. I would recommend booking an entire room for a group of 4 or 5 as 6 adults in one room can sometimes get a little overwhelming with everyone talking and doing stuff. At some points, there will not be enough for everyone to do something when you have that many people. The Haunted room is certainly laid out well and the puzzles and riddles are a lot of fun to figure out.
