    First timers
    First time for all of us at an escape room and this one was perfect. We did a mermaid theme for our friends 40th and couldn't have picked a better escape room. Ellie walked us through everything we needed to know and was a delight to us all. We unfortunately didn't escape on time but thats ok just makes us want to come back more. Can't wait to come back. Thanks for the fun memories.

    Ammmazing and so FUN!
    This is our second escape room we have done and have loved both experiences! The first time we took our girls and they had a great time trying to solve the puzzles. We went with some couples this time and, again, had a wonderful time. The staff was amazing and they made it so enjoyable. We will definitely be coming back!

    Siren’s Cove is fantastic!
    We played the Siren’s Cove room and had the best time! This was our first time visiting the Point Ruston location, but we’ve played at the Gig Harbor location several times. Siren’s Cove was so impressive. Escape Hour always does really immersive and creative escape rooms, and this one was extensive and a lot of fun, with really intuitive puzzles. The methods for giving clues were really well-done too! For a pirate-themed room, it never felt cheesy or goofy, which we appreciated. Our game master was Jayda (I may not be spelling her name right) and she was wonderful! She was enthusiastic, gave great hints, and was very encouraging.

    high quality escape room experience
    I have done a lot of escape rooms, and Escape Hour consistently provides a high quality experience. Our gamemaster, Ellie, was wonderful! The room was well thoughtout and the puzzles were challenging and fun. I can't recommend Escape Hour enough!

    Amazing Family Friendly Adventure!
    We had an amazing experience. I took a group of 8-11-year-olds to the Siren's Cove experience and it was fantastic! My youngest was afraid of the dark at the beginning but the staff was so supportive and helpful that she eased into the experience and we were able to enjoy ourselves! I was ready to give up but the manager and our lovely guide Ellie really went above and beyond to support the kids in being light and fun about the game. We all had a great time and my youngest daughter was laughing at the end. They gave her a little note and a toy congratulating her on her birthday and her ability to face her fear! It was so sweet of them. We'll totally come back!

    Temetra's Hex was a blast
    This was our fifth experience with Escape Hour and our second at the Point Ruston loation. The newer experience, Temetra's Hex was fantastic! Gamemaster Jada's enthusiasm and story telling made it more enjoyable. The technical/engineering aspects of the room were so well done. It may have been the best one yet.

    Fun for everyone!
    Aslyn was great! Our family has done escape rooms in Gig Harbor, Las Vegas, Orlando, Tacoma and Maui and the Pirate’s Cove was one of our favorites. There were so many puzzles that we were all busy but also needed to come together to solve as a team. There were surprises around every corner and a great variety of challenges and puzzles. It was so fun and Aslyn did an amazing job with clues…moving us along, but not giving too much away.

    Siren's Cove escape room
    Honestly one of the better escape rooms I've been able to do. Lots of fun puzzles, great game masters (McKenzie and I think Megan?), and a really satisfying multi-room length escape. Hints were effective without being too obvious, and our gamemasters delivered them in a charming fashion. Would happily go again for the other adventures.

    Entertaining!!!
    This escape room was outstanding! McKenzie, our game master, was fun, helpful (only if needed) and kept the game paced perfectly. We’ll do another one with Escape Hour Point Ruston again for sure!

Very well designed escape room! We had a blast and now I need to do the other room. This one is worth the experience. A must escape from! :)

Having gone through all but one of their rooms, I’m clearly an Escape Hour fan.

Whether it be at their Point Ruston or Gig Harbor location, their staff, puzzles, and entire experience is inevitably amazing!

I love that its puzzles have different levels (climbing, crawling, sliding), which I haven’t seen elsewhere.

I appreciate that the puzzles require you to work WITH your teammates in order to solve them.

And, of course, I love that the themes are integral to the whole game rather than tossed in as an afterthought (and that the game masters fully embody the theme’s characters as well).

Escape Hour is THE best escape room venue that I’ve been to — and I’ve been to many across the country!

We had a great team building experience. It was very fun and challenging. Our souls are trapped for now. But I have a feeling we will solve this problem soon

Very accommodating and an overall wonderful experience. Puzzles were 10/10 and the atmosphere was an 11/10. Kelsie was very kind to us and I hope to play there again soon!

We had an amazing time celebrating a birthday with several generations of our family. The escape room was very interactive including multiple rooms and was just the right amount of difficulty. There are different types of puzzles that each of our team was able to solve and contribute to our escape. Our youngest member was 12. Highly recommend.

This was an absolutely amazing experience! We’ve done a few escape rooms around the Seattle/Tacoma/Gig Harbor area and this is our favorite so far! The puzzle are fun and the helper made it so much fun!

The staff were amazing! And the escape room was super fun. Brought a 17 yr old for his birthday and it took us until the last minute to “escape”. The parrot was a huge help ☺️
