Western Room- This room was pretty cool. Loved the beginning even though we ended up solving it the non traditional way. Don't over think it and remember to communicate your findings and you'll be fine. The room its self was not difficult at all. The thumbing is very good and the puzzles aren't too challenging. It was the right amount of easy for us. This was our first of 4 rooms for he night so we wanted an easier room to warm us up. I recommend this room if you are newer to escape rooms as I believe it offers a good mix of some common puzzles. The location was easier to find, there is metered parking on the street. The lobby area was nice and they have some awesome props to pose with in your victory photos! Our game masters were very attentive and made the experience super fun, they even stayed to talk with us for a bit afterwards, which we always appreciate!
Only reason I took off 1 star was because of a physical puzzle in the room which the GM had to come fix for us because we had been solving it another way which caused a piece to fall out of our reach. To fix this in the future I would simply magnet the item to the piece or hook it onto it so that it can't be knock off so easily.
Overall, Western was a fun room if you are looking to kill some time in SD. I would like to come back and try their other rooms as well.

We went here for a team building event. There were seven of us in the Western room. We really did need to work together, pairing up and sharing information in order to solve the puzzles and unlock ourselves. Apparently the Western room is the most challenging and indeed it was, at least to us, escape room novices. Super Fun - looking forward to going back soon.

What a great experience! My family and I did the Western themed room through a Groupon. We were greeted immediately upon entry by Mark who explained all the rules and other details. Although I haven't done many escape rooms to compare this one with I thought that this room itself was reasonably challenging and super fun! In addition to the Western themed room there were also 3 additional rooms VooDoo, Medieval and Science. Parking might be a little challenging since Lockdown is located in the heart of Hillcrest and so of course be aware of parking signs and keep your eye out for street parking! Would definitely come here again to try another room and recommend others to try it as well!

Great experience. We were able to escape in about 45 minutes and it was very fun. Our group was four of us and we had a blast. Great service as well, we had a tour booked for 845 and they accommodated us about 40 minutes early (we finished our dinner earlier than we thought).

Our visit was for a family birthday no teens, all adults; but your selection only allowed for teens or small children. You should broaden the selection for sort of visit . We had a great time doing something new and different and felt our room was well thought out!!

First of all, the person that received us (I think his name was Mark) was very nice with us and helpful.
The room was very challenging and fun, we thought that by being only two people, is was going to be very hard, but we made it!
I totally recommended it for couple date or friends.

The Western Room was an awesome experience. It is challenging but great fun. Can't wait to try another escape room as it is very addicting once you have escaped.

We have done 4 rooms now . 2 in Vegas and 2 in San Diego. We are HOOKED!!! The detail in the rooms is excellent. Even if you don't make it out it's still a lot of fun and it makes you want to try again.

Went here to celebrate a birthday weekend in San Diego. Had a fantastic time doing the "Western" and "Science" rooms. Only request is that they could underline the numbers to help determine between a "6" or a "9." I loved the production value, with the full immersive feel of the rooms, with clues appropriate to the scenarios. Beware though, not all the props are needed to answer the clues and can totally lead you the wrong way. I would definitely come back and recommend this place to others!

John and Mark (I think those were their names) were great gamemasters. Very helpful. Nice, clean lobby. Exciting, authentic looking western scenario. Different puzzles than we have come across before. Didn't make it out in time, but had a great experience!
