This is by far the best Escape Room experience. The staff is incredible, the rooms are cleverly designed, and whether we win or lose it is always a fun and exciting time. I can't help but want to come back and try new rooms after every time I go. I brought friends and co-workers who have never experienced an escape room before and they are always thrilled and become as hooked as I am. There is no other escape room place that comes close to being as awesome as Escape Expert. Great job Escape Expert team!!!

I had a lovely time here with my teammates yesterday. The puzzles were very intriguing and kept us captivated. The people who work there have an amazing sense of humor too.

Escape Expert is literally one of the coolest places that we've found in Plano and is tons of fun for the whole family. The rooms are so we designed and the backstories behind each one are great. Super friendly staff. Ever since my first escape room, I've been hooked and I definitely look forward to coming back again. Highly, highly recommend to everyone.

Went through "The End" with 7 in our group. We wanted to try the hardest room they had and it has an escape rate of 10%. Our group had 2 escape room virgins, one veteran (28 rooms completed) and the other 4 had 2-5 rooms each under their belts. A couple of their clues were somewhat misleading. The most frustrating part for us was the last puzzle. We had 9 minutes to solve it, but the red herring was so good we didn't get out. We all felt a little cheated by that. It seemed like they really tried hard to make the last red herring so convincing you wouldn't get out.

This is the first escape room I've been to (I'm the veteran) that penalizes you for asking to use one of the 3 clues you are allowed by taking away 2 minutes of your time for each clue. I feel you should get the 3 clues without losing any time.

While the instructions given were entertaining, they went on at great length. The virgins were a bit overwhelmed by all of them. I like it better when the instructions are given by a power point presentation instead of a live person.

I wouldn't say this is my favorite facility, but I will go back to go through more of their rooms, as they are one of the better run places I've been to.

All 7 of us had a great time, despite our frustrations!

Our group of 4 had the Secret Vault to ourselves, and we Won! The hosts were great at giving us tips before entering the room. The condition of the items in the room was good, too. Can definitely recommend giving Escape Expert a try! We'll certainly be back, to try their harder rooms.
