“room escape”(4 reviews)

Part scavenger hunt, part race, part mystery game, players race against the clock to find clues, uncover hidden messages and themes, and solve riddles and logic puzzles with the goal of unlocking the room door within a frenzied 60 minutes.

I've been to a few different escape rooms now, and CryptIQ is far and away the best. Imaginative plots, clever puzzles and multiple hidden rooms. I've done Grandma's Attic and the Newsroom, and I am eagerly awaiting a shot the next iteration with the escape...More

Had no idea of what to expect and no idea how one begins this once the door closed and timer starts. Immediately you are involved and start bonding with your teammates who were strangers just moments earlier. Time flies by because you are so engrossed....More

We are escape room enthusiasts and have done over 40 rooms. CryptIQ is the best room escape on Long Island and one of the best we've done nationwide. The puzzles are challenging, but solvable. The theming makes sense. The rooms are unique; they don't feel...More

A team of eight of us spent this past Saturday attempting to escape CRYPTIQ’s Newsroom for my mom’s birthday. It was SO great to be able to find an experience that appealed to the range of mid-20-year olds to mid-60-year olds in our group. I’ve...More

This was my second Cryptiq visit. Our group had a blast. The game is challenging, riveting, nail-biting, and multi-faceted, and the work of the owners shines. There is extensive work put in to the game and all of the moving parts, and this becomes evident...More

We have been to other escape rooms in the NY area, and CryptIQ is the best! Not only was the game incredibly clever, but the game-master was pleasant and appropriately helpful. If you are looking for a fun family experience, I highly recommend CryptIQ.

Thanks for your interest in CRYPTIQ! The game is challenging and designed for older teens and adults. That being said, we usually find that younger players have fun playing in a family dynamic like you describe, where the... More
