Loved this place. We did two rooms back-to-back (Sherlock & Encore). Clever puzzles, unique props, one-of-a-kind concepts. Going back to do Gods room tonight!

For those using wheelchairs or other devices, I suggest you call first (the owners are amazing) to see if it would be right for you. Sherlock might be tight for a wheelchair; Encore has room for one. Encore has something at about 4' level on the wall.

We had never heard about escape rooms before today, so needless to say it was a challenge. There were four of us in our group and it definitely made us think outside the box. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the staff were exceptional! Since we were so CLUELESS, and there was no one booked after us we were given additional time and helpful hints. We would highly recommend The Escape Effect and would come back here the next time we visit Orlando.

Great escape room with impressive production value. Theme park quality sets and theming. Good puzzles that are challenging but don't feel cheap or arbitrary like some other rooms do. Had a lot of fun in the "At Odds With the Gods" room, would like to try the Sherlock Holmes one.

A group of us went yesterday to do the Sherlock room. We loved the fact that it was 75 minutes, and the game was very challenging! We semi-escaped, they were nice and added an additional few minutes. The room had a great blend of classic escape room locks and tactics, and then some others that I hadn't seen before. I am definitely looking forward to going back and doing their Greek Gods room!

Also something to note - the owner, Dan, is SO nice. You can tell he really cares about the games and making them successful. They also have the ability to tweak each game to the groups skill level. Would absolutely recommend!

We had a blast in the Sherlock Holmes room. The team/staff were great. We solved the room with 15 seconds to spare with a family of four (including a 9 and 11 year old). Well thought-out clues and good flow. We will definitely be back to try the other rooms!
