The Lost Spy is the best escape room I have done. The amount of detail put into everything is amazing. There were five people in my group which was not enough but with that few people, it kept us all busy the entire time. Everything from the clues, to the clue master were kept within the storyline of the puzzle and thats what made this so amazing. The climax of this room was the best that I have seen. Immediately after finishing this room we came back to complete the other rooms at Clue Chase which we did not like as much but were still very nice for escape rooms especially in NYC. It is conveniently located and in a much better location than most of the other NYC escape rooms which is a huge help as well. If you are just looking to unlock locks, then The Heist room at clue chase is the room for you!

We had previously done a couple of escape rooms in Orlando...that were top rated
Clue chase was euqally impressive Gamemaster David was superb.

We had a party of 5, did the spy room and finished with 2 minutes to spare.

We enjoyed reviewing all the puzzles and clues....even with just five, it still is difficult to keep.up with every aspect of every puzzle and how they are used.

We did an 830 game.

Highly recommended

We booked the Heist experience for a private group - and all absolutely loved it!! every little detail was on spot, with fascinating puzzles, great setup and a bit of nudging every now and then how to best crack the codes.

My daughter and I did the Heist room escape game and had the BEST time. The puzzles to solve were clever with just the right amount of challenge to them. The room attendant Lou was absolutely perfect at his job; funny and entertaining while being helpful (but not so helpful as to take the fun out of it). He knew just when to lend a hand and when to leave us to it. It was so much fun I wished it could have lasted longer than an hour. Guess I will just have to go back to solve the riddles we missed the first time around. Can't wait! This would be a perfect team building event for a small office.
