My boyfriend and I did the Playground and Classified rooms while on a freezing vacation to Austin. We had such a blast!! Since our rooms were just the two of us, Playground felt a little more difficult than Classified, but I think that had more to do with the structure of the rooms than the puzzles. The staff was really friendly and did a great job with clue giving. Would definitely recommend this place!

It was rainy outside and cold so this was the perfect indoor activity with the perfect amount of time. I’ve done heist and prison break before so the one we tried was gold rush. The puzzles were fun but not too complicated. We managed to finish with 10minutes left and loved every aspect and how each person used their skillset to help solve. Prices are around 40/person and you can book an entire session privately if you want. Definitely a must do for any type of hangouts.

My daughter and I did The Heist room. From the moment we walked in the door to the moment we left everyone we interacted with was personable, helpful, and fun! The room was tough and as people who do a lot of rooms, had some exciting challenges.

Highly recommend the escape experience! Each one is a different experience but the playground was so much fun. We were given the extra minutes we needed to escape so that was a plus!!!!! We were paired with another couple which was so much fun.

We did 3 rooms in these 2 days.
Every time we entered the shop, the shop staff (receptionists) welcomed us with the positive smile, which makes us excited already.
They know the best game for us always based on our experience.

Once we go into each room, it’s another world! Each room is well decorated so that we can feel as if we were in another world.
Another thing that I like very much is that each room can be enjoyed even if you are not good at English, we totally enjoyed as foreigners (average Japanese) without any language troubles.

Then the quizzes! They are awesome!!
When we finished the 1st room (Play Ground) which we could not escape, we already knew we would come back soon!
Then we made the reservations for the next room for the following day.

2nd room (Gold Rush) was also awesome! We did escape the room, we used a lot of hints though.
We had 5 members in the team which means we had 2more than the previous day and we had more power and brains!

We were so happy that we ran into the 3rd room (HEIST). The story and the room decoration is beautifully made. I like this one the best.
Throughout all those 3 rooms, the tour guides watched us and listened to us closely enough to provide us the appropriate additional information.

Lastly, I can not avoid to tell that the shop staff’s prompt first aid. One of my team mates fell down on the way coming to the shop and arrived with bloody face!!! The receptionists brought the first aid kit, and helped us a lot! Thanks so much. His injury was not so heavy and he could enjoy the escape room game after that.

In total, I really recommend all the viewers of this post visit this shop, see talk with the receptionists and go into “another world”.

2日間に亘り、3つの部屋に挑戦しました。
Play Ground, Gold Rush, HEIST の3つです。
いずれも非常に良く構成されていて、虜になりました。英語が不得意でも特に困難なく進めることができるので、安心して参加してください。

We escaped the classified room. There were 4 of us, and it was crowded; I wouldn’t have wanted the additional 3 people in the room. We got only one hint. Having escape room experience was useful to get out of this low-tech room.

This was our first visit, but went with others who were "experienced" We had a great time, challenging but not frustrating. Staff was excellent.

We did both gold rush and prison break rooms. We loved them both! They are challenging. Staff was really nice. Kristin was our game master and she was phenomenal. We loved having her.
