This was a fun adventure for our family. Great way to do something fun indoors together. You can ask for hints or work it out yourself. Good news is we escaped!

Our family had a fantastic time escaping from the taphophobia room! It was a challenging and creative experience. Our host CJ was welcoming and encouraging. Highly recommend the Cooked Key!

We had such a great time! Noah had a great personality and gave us great instructions. We did the western themed room and it was quite a challenge. It really required us to think outside of the box. Thankfully we had a wide variety of ages participating (parents and adult children with their spouses), so that helped provide different perspectives, though the young adults got the most clues. We did ask for some clues, but were finally able to complete it a few minutes beyond the 60 allowed. Highly recommend this with a group of people.

Awesome to hear. Trouble at the Lucky Bird Saloon is a great family game. Try Flashover next time - about twice as big and also good for multi-generational families. - Paul

We have done three of four of the escape adventures at The Crooked Key. All of them are exceptional. Three generations of us just completed the firehouse escape. After a slow start (with a few hints), we got through the garage door into the fire. We rescued all ten animals and made it out safely just under the limit at 57 minutes. We had a blast and highly recommend this activity for all ages.

The staff was excellent! We did the Poe room (based on Edgar Allen Poe). Difficult but we were able to win it. The room even included fog for atmosphere. Loved the set. Very good experience overall! Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Steamboat Springs!

Our family of 4 tried the Flashover room. We had never experienced an escape room before and chose the hardest one! We had great "arguments" while inside, and finally pulled it together. Thanks to Paul for a great experience. We will definitely be back. Highly recommend. Awesome awesome time.

Design and theming was excellent. Family friendly yet challenging. Puzzles are well designed, hints are incredibly well done.
