It's good game for its price, but not the best one.
We have a good time and of course I recommend this place if you're living nearby.

We booked the room for a total of 12 people and had such an amazing time. The puzzles were varied and the teams started in two different rooms and had to really work and communicate well together.

The hosts were awesome and very engaging. The pre and post game interaction was the most thorough I've encountered in all of my escaping.

I hear they have a great clue system that is very true to the scenario, but we didn't get to experience it. We used no clues... apparently the first of almost 200 teams to successfully escape without any!

There were no lockboxes offered to us to store our things.

I've been to at least four other escape locations and have down about 20 rooms alogether, and this was a stand out experience. Would highly recommend.

I've played many escape games before, in Europe and a handful here as well and got hooked. Lockquest was the escape game I enjoyed the least by far, unfortunately. The concept and puzzles were well done, I like how it was theme related, but playing with strangers made my group and myself very uncomfortable. It was very awkward for my team and I, it made our trip a poor experience, especially after playing at so many wonderful escape games.

Fun puzzles, but poor experience.

Hi, Jude! I'm sorry to hear that while you enjoyed the game, playing with a blended team had such an impact on your experience. For any booking, players can request that we block off the remaining unsold seats if they're uncomfortable meeting new people at LockQuest. I apologize if that wasn't clear. Please allow me to follow up with you privately so that we can address your concern.

This was my, and most of my friends', first time at an escape room, and it was brilliant! Don't be afraid, it's a really fun, immersive, friendly game, and the hosts were really fun and entertaining. Everyone will have a blast, go and enjoy!

I had an absolute blast. I went with a group of 7 friends, most of whom have never done an escape room. The hosts were fun, friendly and welcoming. They went through the rules and explained the basics of how everything will work before we started and gave a nice debriefing at the end.

Once we were in the rooms, it was an absolutely exhilarating hour of solving puzzles, finding things in odd places and putting known facts together. The puzzles were great. Some were really easy, some were challenging. All were logical and doable, nothing super obscure or anything that would require external knowledge. You really just need your brain and some decent observation skills.

It is definitely a group activity. There are so many things to do, you need multiple people working simultaneously on different things. Communication is key, we all needed each other's brains to succeed and frequently solved puzzles together. I will never forget the feeling of pure triumph when we opened the door with only a few minutes to spare.

I will be keeping an eye out for their next adventure!
