We've done a number of escape rooms around Seattle, and even in a few other states, and Hourglass Escapes does raise the bar. Good use of technology, physical items, thematic plots, etc. There were a couple technical difficulties during our experience but it certainly doesn't seem like this is the norm. Would recommend to a friend.

Thank you for the amazing review! We love knowing that experienced players enjoy the game and appreciate the story as well. We hope you visit us again at our new space.

We also want to thank you and all of our players in May for a very special reason. $1 of all tickets sold May 1st to Mothers day goes to Mary's Place Seattle. A local charity to help homeless mothers, children and families.

I've been to many other escape rooms. This one was unique in that a lot of the puzzles center around one artifact. It is not as hard as others I've done but is still challenging. We solved it with a group of 8 people.

Thank you for the high praise! We do our best to be a unique room that is accessible to all skill levels.

Dr. Carter, asked me to pass on his gratitude for saving him from certain doom. He also hopes to see you when he returns from Egypt.

Cheers!

I found out about the room from escaperoomtips.com. It rated this as one of the best rooms in Seattle. Everything the review said was true (this was a very sound tech game, the automation was great, the theme was consistent). However, I have two complaints: We went as a group of 9 which I think is too large (a group of 6-7 should suffice); therefore none of us got the satisfied feeling of cracking it + it got too hot in there after a while. Otherwise, it was a fun adventure, and the host was very helpful and engaging.

Hi Sam,

We appreciate the feedback. We are glad you agree it is one of the best in Seattle and enjoy the tech and the game master.

And we also appreciate the feedback. I just emailed our web developer to add some info in our FAQ and on the game page with group size recommendations. Please check our site in the next week or two for that addition.

We are enlarging the room size for this adventure in our new facility that opens in July. As well as making sure the air conditioning is on for all games now that the weather has changed.

Feel free to contact me thru the website if you have any other needs. Your feedback helps us grow and improve.

We took our team out to play Rise of the Mad Pharaoh at Hourglass Escapes, and we had a blast. For me, it was my very first time in an escape room. The puzzles were interesting and challenging. It was just the right amount of difficulty, luck, and humor to keep our whole team engaged.

It was a great event for our little company, and I would recommend it to anyone: for some old-fashioned fun, a birthday party, or a corporate team-building or morale event. Thanks, Seth, for hosting us!

Thank you so much for the praise. We love hosting team building events for small groups.It is really cool to see coworkers who are also close friends play the game.

Thank you so much for playing, we hope to see you again soon.

It was fun but way to expensive. It would have been better with a little more info or better understanding before going in

We take feedback very seriously and I am sorry you did not have an exceptional experience. Feel free to contact me directly at
(920)372-2734 to correct the situation.

Our price is standard for Escape rooms in Seattle and less expensive than others in the area.

I do realize that Escape Room Games are a newer form of entertainment, and I will revisit our website and see how to clarify the description of the experience better.
