Went with a total of 6 adults and we did the Classified Room. Very clever! Well done & decorated. We all loved it and had a great time. Our host Zach was also wonderful! Looking forward to going back and doing a different room.

Staff is very friendly & helpful throughout the game, the rooms were well designed & had plenty of challenging puzzles & activities. My friends and I had a great time, i’ll definitely be coming back! Recommend parking at the Austin Convention Center or across the street in the hotel garage

I've done all 5 rooms, the rooms are amazing, moderators are excellent (we had Connor recently - love him).

We've done almost all the rooms at The Escape Game, with a 50% success rate if I recall correctly. They're challenging and fun, with choke points being fairly rare (in other words, usually everyone has something to do or explore or think about as opposed to everyone being stuck on one problem). There is an occasional trouble spot, but only in one of their rooms did I feel they had missed the mark by creating a bottleneck with a physical puzzle that only one or two people could operate while everyone else sat on their hands. There's a pretty heavy reliance on locks but there are plenty of more clever puzzles as well.

Like most other such escape venues the puzzles require the use of hints to escape in time (unless you've researched ahead of time or are a team dedicated to solving puzzles like this). Hints are great for getting past niggly bits that you've figured out but just aren't quite working right (that's happened to us once or twice at The Escape Game and many times at other venues). They're also good for getting past points where the designer had something in mind that turns out to be pretty obscure to most people. However, I wish venues would understand that having to take a hint often feels like failure, and that setting the bar so that most people have to use hints is a mistake, at least for consumers like me. I also wish venues would offer a no hints option with more time (and higher cost, which I would gladly pay).

This pace is great if you’re planning on spending time with friends in Austin. Or even if you’re a native Austinite! It’s a memorable experience. The staff is super friendly. We’ve had Bridget as our game host twice, she is amazing!! Definitely this place out.
