    Great fun and experience
    It was a great night out. The finding Bigfoot was a blast. Even though we did not make it all the way through. The help was able to walk us through the rest of the puzzles and experienced the rest of the game. I would definitely recommend it.

    Tricky and fun!
    My husband and I went for an anniversary date. We had a great time trying to make our way through Amnesia. We didn't finish but still had fun. We can't wait to go back and try another room.

    Great rooms!
    Loved the theming and puzzles in the Out of the Past room! Can’t wait to do all the rooms at this location. We love to go through each room in a location and just finished doing so at EscapeGamesPDX, their sister location. Figured we’d try out this location and we were not disappointed!

    Great Experience- Will go back for more
    Great presentation! I was not expecting how well themed the room would be. We went for my Mom’s 84th birthday. Wonderfully hosted by John; 3 generations spend a delightful hour trying to crack the code . We all agreed we will go again!

    Fun and very enjoyable
    Best escape rooms in town. Room are done up very well, as if you were in the time frame! Helpful hints were not too giving of the answer but surely pointed you in the right direction to solve. Love this place!! We bring all of our adult kids and have a great time and many memories created!!

    Worth it!
    I took two of my grandkids, ages 16 and 10, we all loved it. They were very engaged during the game. I thought it was a little pricey for an hour, however it was very well done, some the details had an authentic feel. The staff was friendly. It was called 'Out of the Past', time travel to the old west.

    Fun and clever puzzles. Game master was good and helpful.
    Very fun experience. We did the Sasquatch room. Fun and clever puzzles. Challenging, but not too hard. Our game master with the long hair was really helpful when it came to the hints and his role overall. My only suggestion would be to extend the time a little bit. We will definitely be back.

    A super fun and special date with the hubs!
    My husband and I did the Sasquatch room together for our 10th wedding anniversary and had a blast! This was my second escape room at ParadigmQ (I have also done Murder on the Express) but this was my husband's first escape room ever) and we had an amazing time. The puzzles were challenging and fun but still manageable, and the Game Master, Natalie, did a great job of giving us just enough help (only when we asked for it) to nudge us along if we got stuck. The theming was great and so immersive, everything feels very "real", which makes the game extra exciting. My husband did the escape room for my sake and didn't think he'd be into it but he ended up LOVING it and we both can't wait to go back again soon!

    Fun adventure
    Had a very good time with this escape room. There were 6 of us, and we were able to complete the room before time ran out. We did have a couple hints though. My only concern is the cost. It would be nice if it wasn't $37.50 per person, or $225 for one hour of entertainment. I think if it was $37.50 per person up to a maximum of $100 or $125 per room, they'd probably get a lot more business. We'll do another escape room, but not often.

We did this for my (gamer) husband's birthday this year and he had an absolute blast! We even brought our 1 year old and 5 year old and they had good time, albeit were slightly confused by all the adults running around and frantically talking about codes/clues, etc.

I have done two room from ParadigmQ and they are great experiences every time. For a bigger group it’s perfect because you can all be working on a different puzzle. Game coach was great didn’t give things away but put us on the right direction when we needed it. We will be returning.

Garrett was a great Game Master during the Orient Express experience. The theme was carried out well as well as the storyline. We had a fun time and will return.

Way too expensive, and looks really cheap.
I did the murder mystery one and on the tv it was just 4 people in cheap costumes and the place is ran by just a group of 4 people.
It costed me 40$ per person and it was not worth the money.
Worst decision of my life

We took my 11 year old and her friend to try an escape room and they had a blast! The room was very well themed and fun to interact with. The puzzles were a perfect difficulty, not too hard or too simple. Our host, Garrett, was fun & helpful also! He gave us great hints. We asked for our last hint right as our time ran out, and Garrett still let us enter our guess to see the ending video. Overall a wonderful experience!

We booked 3 escape rooms for a company event and had a blast! The employees at ParadigmQ were so accommodating and helpful. They fit us all in and went out of their way to make sure we had a fun time. Thank you!

This event was for my son’s 15th birthday with three of his friends. They escaped the Amnesia Room with almost four minutes to spare and had a blast!

We did the Into The Past room. This was our first room as a couple (rather than a group) and apparently chose a pretty hard room. Very friendly staff. Fun room, overall great experience!
