Don’t waste your money
Nov. 2019 • Friends
3 friends and I went to experience the School of Wizardry room yesterday. The experience was extremely disappointing. Between our group we have completed well over 100 escape rooms. I’ve done 70 myself. We had attempted another of their rooms in the past and didn’t enjoy it, but thought the theme of this one would be fun. The effects in the room are good but that’s about it. In order to get a hint you have to wave at a camera with a sign. We waved a number of times and it wasn’t until we had someone leave the room to get assistance that he came in. We had asked for help (as most locations will allow) and were ostracized by the person that came in. He was condescending and didn’t offer any real assistance.
We waved again for assistance because a piece of the room appeared to be faulty. For 20 minutes we were ignored. We would have gotten out with 20 minutes left had someone come to assist us. There are two locks on this particular puzzle which we had the correct code but the first lock was set wrong and the second lock was faulty. When they came in to tell us we lost and I questioned them about the lock she said “yeah, we had troubles with that lock”. We confirmed with her that that was the last piece we needed to get out and she said yes. We told her we had been trying to get their attention for 20 minutes and they offered no apology, no explanation, no customer service. So for $120 for 55 minutes of entertainment I’d suggest you go elsewhere. Escape City on 104th st. is a really great experience for anyone looking to try out an escape room.

Not the greatest

The room we did wasn’t great. The puzzles were good but the whole room was run down. Things didn’t work properly. It was a disappointment. I don’t think we will be back.

Pirates!
Feb. 2019
My girlfriend and I attended this escape location and though we did not escape, it was a fun experience. It was our first time doing a ‘higher tech’ room, so there was a learning curve as we weren’t well equipped for utilizing the sensors as well as we would have liked. With that said, this was a fantastic room to learn in and we definitely left with new knowledge in this newer generation of escape rooms.

What made this experience incredibly positive was our game master who took the time after to talk to us about anything and everything we wanted to know. It wasn’t at all in a way that was ‘you needed to do this, this, this’ to get out, but instead he gathered the remaining ‘clues’ we had and allowed us to solve the puzzles with his guidance. We definitely appreciated this extra attention to boost our diminished confidence lol. I would go back with a larger group to try the Jungle room because of two reasons.

1. It was really fun trying something new and this location offers something a bit different than other escape rooms.

2. Our Game Master was thorough, extremely helpful and was 100% willing to take the extra time to discuss different escape room types and how it can be a transition from your general ‘lock and key room’ to a new concept - that requires a new frame of thought. His willingness to explain things gave us incentive to return.

Its a fun place to hold a birthday party. The kids were very immersed into the story. It felt very real an the puzzles were high tech.

We did game of thrones and it was a great room. We escape and staff was very helpful when part of our team started guessing and reset one of the puzzles. Everything is high tech here.

Don't miss this for a fun Friday night!
Jan. 2019 • Family
Great place an very clean. It does matter where you bring your kids for a weekend fun. I will go back to check the other rooms with friends and colleagues, when budget allows. My teenage boys still talk about it today, one week after.
Plus: It's very cool when they post a picture with your group, free of charge.

Poor experience
Oct. 2018 • Friends
My friend and I have tried all the rooms here and were disappointed with them all. Not only are the hints not very helpful but we found there to be a lot of poorly made materials. While it looks nice in the waiting area and the staff are nice I would not recommend this location to anyone interested in escape rooms.

Very nice pirate room
Oct. 2018 • Family
Very nice decor and very good puzzles. The new thing is that the padlocks are eliminated by high tech. Solve a puzzle and a box or a door will pop open. The room looks like inside of an old ship. The light the smell and the very tastfull prop, all contribute to a very imersive adventure.
We will return to do Jumanji room witch I was told is even better.
Also they were working on a game of Thrones based escape room and I am eager to try it. With 3 new rooms coming soon it will be cool to have something like a season or even weekly pass available.

Disappointing Service/Puzzle - The Jungle
Sep. 2018 • Couples
Not greeted at all upon arrival and when I asked about how to check in, received less than friendly or helpful reply from staff. Held clue card for several minutes with no response and had to leave the room to advise we were waiting for a clue - staff were too busy chatting with each other to notice (however, they did add minutes to time once brought to their attention). One of the beginning "puzzles" had no clue or logic tied to it and a clue was wasted on this step...disappointing.

This room was great, but the pre-recorded clues were almost no help at all. They took a long time to show up on the TV screen, and more times than not they were clues to puzzles we had already solved.
