Took our 13 year old daughters to Omescape for a birthday party with 15 total people. Did two rooms by splitting the group. We've done 3 other escape rooms before and this one was very creative and plenty challenging. Staff was very encouraging and helped a few times with hints. Overall facility has a comfortable common area with lots of games to pass the time waiting for others. Highly recommend giving this fun attraction a try.

theres a waiting area with games so your party can arrive a little early!

the people running things are super friendly, chill, and on top of things. they give you a walkie talkie lifeline j. case you get stumped-- none of that waiting and hoping they notice you waving at the camera. the walkie talkie is Great!

we did the forgotten treasure room and it was awesome! cool puzzle

If you've never done an escape room, get ready for fun. We didn't make it out :( but had a blast anyway. Since we were the last ones there, they just let us have extra time to get to the end (took us about 4 extra minutes to get out). Be aware that the location looks like a "warehouse" district and if you're the last group out late, the gate will be closed. Just drive up close to it, it will open (we were a bit worried we were trapped!). Super nice people.

What a great way to kill your time! Came with some friends and got the room to ourselves. One minute left and we made it!!! Definitely one of the must-visit places in SF.

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 person, but trust me - it's worth it. Shout out to the staff for being so amazing as well. The first time my group was late (don't recommend showing up late to anyone though), but they still let us have a full hour. The guy also took the time to walk us through what we missed after not escaping! I can't wait to go back and try the third room.
