Came in to the area to visit family and I just had to do some escape rooms. After checking out all of the areas rooms, I landed here. We originally wanted to play Call of the Ancient, but they couldn’t get us in, so we went and played the Pirate themed room (apologies, can’t remember the name for the life of me and it isn’t on our photo since we were supposed to play COTA). It was a great time for me (who’s played over 50 rooms), my cousin and his wife (who have played under 5), and three young boys. We allowed the boys to do a lot of the puzzles and locks, so it took us a little longer than expected, but we still escaped under 50 minutes. This is a particularly great room for new escape room lovers and families! The set design in this room is really neat. All of the puzzles make sense and the flow is perfect. I dislike puzzles that don’t belong, and we didn’t encounter any of those. The staff and management was extremely friendly and helpful, and we ended up playing the Manor right after. This was a real clever room, which would have been way more fun without the young boys. This is definitely not a family room, which we were absolutely advised of - but my cousin and his wife really wanted to play another room so we tried anyway. Unfortunately, my cousin put a key in his pocket on accident, and the boys took one of the clues we needed and walked around with it, so we were pushed back on time a little, but we still got out with a couple minutes to spare. This room is dark but definitely easy to navigate with the provided items in the room. Room transition is cool as well, all of the puzzles fit the theme and nothing seems out of place for a manor setting. If I ever end up in Austin again, I would love to try the Call of the Ancient room and Lab Rat. I definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting to try game or add more to their count. You won’t be disappointed.

It was so much fun! Our game master was really kind, and we joked around a lot! I was with my cousin and her two friends for her birthday, and we had a blast. We love Ehlrich and kept calling him 'narrator' we even made him a little meme, and joke around saying 'Narrator our beloved'. It was all around an amazing experience, and a recommend it 100%!

My family and I had a great time during our escape. The experience was very well thought out and challenging. We have done several escape rooms in the past and this one so far is our favorite. We will definitely go back!

My wife and I did all four escape rooms here. They were all original and very fun. And we really appreciate Kelsy allowing us to give Lab Rat a try with only two people. We didn't make it out, it really needs more than two, but it was an awesome room. Highly recommend it for groups of 6!! Our favorite was Call of the Ancient, but all the rooms were particularly good (and we've done over 450 rooms). Kelsy and her staff were very friendly and supportive. Do these rooms!!
