Overview

You're stuck in a 1980s time warp. Your group has 60 minutes to get through four rooms and find clues that will unlock doors, open padlocks, and hack into computer systems. Your goal is to get "back to the future". Make calls from push button 80s phones....enter a "secret code" into a talking computer system...press "musical notes" to unlock doors - and tons more. Knight Rider, the Goonies, Walkie Talkies and much more. Whether you're celebrating a birthday, going out on a date, doing something rad with friends or looking for some non-dorky team building - this is a totally righteous, most unusual adventure.

We’re four 30ish friends who loved Escape the 80s. Very fun atmosphere and decor, great host. Kept us running around without being too frustrating. The plot sort of trailed off at the end, but we were having enough fun that nobody cared.

The perfect escape room for those looking to go back to the 80’s! It was also a lot of fun for those that are escape room novices. The props were awesome, the people that work the room were great, and it was just a super...More

My family of 4 decided to do this as a birthday present. Both my partner and I were teens in the 80's, and we brought our own 2 teens. All the 80's-stuff was great fun, especially the use of music, games and video tape movies....More

Lots of laughter and fun had by all. It was a blast and it was very 80s. They even had 80s in the bathroom. The game controller was fun and very helpful.
