What Our Escapers Have to Say

Transant AntonTransant Anton ★★★★★ We came here for my teenage son’s birthday party and did The Dark Room. We were a mix of adults and teens and it was really fun and challenging for all of us! The staff was energetic and fun, and definitely made us feel welcomed. We're def going back to enjoy another room!Response from the ownerTransant, we are so glad to see your five-star review! Thank you for taking on The Dark Room and choosing us for your Seattle escape games experience. We look forward to seeing you back here again! Rita PerezRita Perez ★★★★★ Awesome place! We did the Dark Room, really cool room.Response from the ownerHi Rita, thanks so much for leaving us five-stars! We are so glad you loved the Dark Room and hope to see you back again for more of our Seattle escape games. T. M.T. M. ★★★★★ We had such an epic time 'attempting' to complete the dark room with our host Chris. Even though we didn't quite make it to the end, we created a fun memory and so glad we took a chance trying. The backstory is pretty sick as well! Thank you Room 5280 for the experience!Response from the ownerT.M., thank you for your review! We are so happy that you had a memorable and fun experience at our Seattle escape room, and we are so glad our staff contributed to your enjoyment Elena HellerElena Heller ★★★★★ Had the BEST time ever at this location! The 4 of us tackled "The Dark Room," and we all agreed that it was by far the most enjoyable escape room experience we've had to date.The puzzles were a lot of fun and the perfect level of challenging.Customer service was impeccable and our host demonstrated a genuine passion for ensuring our experience was nothing short of fantastic. Thanks for a great experience ROOM5280!Response from the ownerHi Elena! Thank you so much for your five-star review! We are so glad to hear that you had your best Seattle escape room experience yet! We hope to see you back at another date! PhilPhil ★★★★★ Fun rooms! Parking is limited, take transit if you can. They have a cool lobby puzzle while you wait, a warm up for what is to come.Experiment: Their smallest room, but still a reasonable size. Set design is sparse. Beginner friendly room with some cool science-based puzzles. Very little into the plot. Best for 2 experienced players or 4 newer players.The Dark Room: A moderate room that is literally dark, but also has a bit of dark theming. Set design is somewhat sparse. Perhaps a 13+ room, but is not scary as there are no jump scares whatsoever. This room is very story-driven. Best for 3 experienced players or 5-6 newer players.The Heist: The most challenging and biggest room. There is some storyline, but not as much as the Dark Room. The best set design of the 3 rooms. Best for 5 experienced players and 7-8 newer players. If your entire group is new to escape rooms, this is probably not a good pick.Response from the ownerHi Phil! Thanks so much for your detailed 5-star review of our escape rooms! We appreciate you taking the time to experience all of our Seattle escape games and leave such thorough feedback. Guests like you help us to continue to improve and ensure we are providing everyone the best escape room experience in Seattle Katie ThackrayKatie Thackray ★★★★★ Shaz was a great host for our group! We completed the Dark Room with 9 people and not one hint with a time of 23:47. Highly recommend going yourself and trying to beat our informal record! (No pictures of the room itself because we locked away all devices in the handy lockers provided)Response from the ownerHi Katie! Thank you for coming to our 9 person escape room and leaving a review! We are so glad you came and beat our Dark Room record! Sam VinnikSam Vinnik ★★★★★ Last night, a few friends of mine and I escaped The Dark Room! We worked our way through puzzles and tried not to lose our heads when we were anxious and stumped. With the help of our amazing gamemaster, Miguel, we were able to keep our heads and get dialed in on the right way to get out.Highly recommend this escape room having completed several escape rooms, this one was a fun experience for sure. Also felt great that we were the only ones to escape in time for that room yesterday! Miguel was great at giving backstory and clues when needed. Thanks Miguel!Response from the ownerSam, we really appreciate you leaving us a five-star review! Our customer service is part of what makes us one of the best escape rooms in Seattle, and we are so glad it added to your experience! We hope to see you back to beat another of our rooms!
