    We had a good time here. Staff very friendly. We did the Cabin it has a fun setting. It was one of their easier ones. We still needed a few clues. Definitely recommend.

    Rafi was an excellent guide! He led our group through extremely thick crowds of totally unaware obstacles (tourists)!
    You are in good care with Capital Segway tours!

    Absolutely that best time! We did not stop laughing and were smiling the rest of the weekend. Such a great experience! The actors are a riot and I have been recommending this to anyone who talks to me about it! 10/10!

    We have done about 30 escape rooms and this rates as one of the best. Our game master, Phil, was an excellent host. The game itself was fantastic. We played their Jurassic room. The props and design are incredibly immersive. It's well built and had a terrific soundscape playing. As soon as we finished we wished we could play it again "fresh" because it was so much fun!

    We booked in for 7pm on a Tuesday night and we’re welcomed as we came in the door. After signing waivers electronically, we were promptly escorted back to our area. Manuel, a professional axe thrower (did not know that is a thing) coached us on technique and checked on us periodically during our session.
    Even though we were the oldest throwers by far and were really bad at it, everyone was welcoming and positive.
    Food and beer can be ordered from a server who rotates among all the stations. We did not try the food.
    Definitely a fun time regardless of age and skill.

    Our family loves escape rooms so we made a point to visit this one on a recent vacation to Washington, DC. Everything went smoothly. While groups of up to 10 are allowed per timeslot, we appreciated that we didn't have anyone added to our family of six. Our host was personable and helpful. The instructional/orientation videos were useful and well-done. This particular room set-up employed a variety of technologies which all worked flawlessly. The difficulty level seemed pretty reasonable to us. This would be a good place to visit for those who are curious about escape rooms and want to try one for themselves.

    A great way to see the highlights of the National Mall as you get round so quickly and effortlessly.
    We have Segways before so found getting back on one very easy. Some of the group were novices but all the staff worked together in the store to make sure everyone was confidence and comfortable before we headed out onto the street.
    The tour leader gave a running commentary via the ear-set so even if the group spread out a bit you could hear him clearly at all times.
    The commentary was a perfect mix of real facts and information mixed with fun facts and anecdotes that kept everyone informed and entertained.
    Would we do it again? Yes, Yes & Yes.

    Very entertaining and surprising.
    We were looking for some family friendly, affordable, and different activity for cold February Saturday night. This was perfect! Brian Curry left us puzzling all night long.

    Loved the tour. The guide was amazing and had me hooked the whole time. The guide hit areas where we could sit since he would tell us stories that would last a long time.
