This was a good team building experience for our staff. The only negative was that the air conditioner was not working, which made the hour a little more uncomfortable.

We're a couple escape room enthusiasts who've done 80+ rooms, and we would not recommend Submarine at Escape the Room NYC. I'll say the one strength was that the set design was good - they really put a lot of details in. Other than that,...More

This is the 5th Escape Room that I have tried (in Orlando, Daytona Beach, and NYC). This was by far the most professional looking room. It was a very fun team-building activity.

It is a challenge for everyone! It truly took my whole team of 8 people (all ages) to get out of the room! I think you will enjoy it and find it challenging all at the same time.
