Amaze Escape was a lot of fun. Justin was a hilarious and helpful game master. We did the Art Heist room and broke the record! Blueberry Extreme will be back to break the jail cell record as well!

Had a great time breaking out of jail at Amaze Escape Arlington. The puzzle was interesting, interactive and contained very few misleading clues (red herrings). I would recommend this escape room, and I look forward to the trying to escape the next room they open.

I haven't done anything this entertaining in a long time. The setting is in a real jail cell. The puzzles are challenging but solvable. A combination of riddles, brainteasers, and puzzles. A challenge that requires all team members to work together to ESCAPE. If you...More
