We've done 3 of the rooms in San Jose. They were all AMAZING! Omescape does an excellent job creating the atmosphere and the puzzles are unique. We will be heading to the Richmond site soon!

It's hard to review this place while not spoiling the puzzles, but it was truly a blast. The production value of the two rooms I've tried were pretty amazing. It kind of felt like being in a movie! It averages at about 30 bucks a...More
