    You get locked in a room and have a limited amount of time to find a series of clues that will eventually get you out of the room. It's a like a video game puzzle in real life.

    Some of the bigger operations have some super advanced room that are tough to figure out.

    It's awful.

    I walked around with a flash light in a dark room for an hour.

    Awful.

    The one I did no one was getting out in time unless they've done it before.

    The one I did yesterday has a 25% pass rate. I think a lot of stupid people go to that location.

    Not trying to be rude, but why would you bring your kids to this, unless it's some sort of kid themed one that would be incredibly easy for adults?

    They wanted to go.... The 4yo is just fascinated by the prospect of being locked in a room and the 6yo loves puzzles.

    sounds okay I guess but only if you do it with some really close friends... could easily be very lame if done incorrectly. worth trying once probably.

    I would be more interested in a room you escape to, right now it's the basement or the shed but somehow the wife always finds me.

    I did one recently that had a 10% success rate and we ended up getting out which was cool.

    They are fun and definitely worth doing the most difficult room

    I bet these places say their pass rates are low to make the attendees feel accomplished.

    It's like an arcade game. Do well and everyone can see your high score. Don't...and they kick you off and laugh at you.

    Don't do one of these with a girlfriend or wife. It will make you want to break up with them.

    Did one with the bff last week. We got stuck with 3 married couples who were doing their 11th room. Having never done one I had no idea what to expect. They started the timer and the room was torn about in about 15 seconds. Drawers ripped out, books being flipped through, one girl ripped her finger nail off trying to take the back of a picture frame off which ended up being glued shut.

    Highlight off the night was watching one of their married couples lose their shit over one of the clues. We had 4 clues with a bunch of codes on them (G-7, A-2, C-5, ect) which ended up being coordinates on a chess board which would ultimately create a 4 digit code for one of the safes. Instead of doing one number at a time, the husband and wife decided they were going to each do a digit at the same time. Go figure that there would be multiple coordinates used at the same time. The wife kept bitching at the guy about moving her pieces when they needed to share a space, so eventually the guy flipped the chess board over and said "you fucking do it then." Told the guy "It's just a game focker" which sadly only the bff got the reference to.

    We escaped in 33 minutes and spent the rest of the night making fun of everyone else.

    The one a professor created at the school I work at brags every chance he gets that no group has been able to complete his in time. I don't even want to do it to prevent giving him the satisfaction of likely another group failing.
