We've been to both rooms at Escape Garden State. Unlike many escape rooms, this one is a nice, bright, clean building. You don't feel creepy about being "locked" in a room. Both rooms are great. We especially liked the Boardwalk. If you have a group of teens/tweens, this is the absolute best escape room in the broader area. Fun for families and small groups, but perfect if for an all-kid group. Easy and reasonable to book a private room. Staff answer the phone/return calls and are very helpful.

Had a great time with our young adult children, working together to solve the puzzle. The room design was intriguing and thoughtful. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We'd love to come back when the next room is introduced.

We got great pleasure. The master helped us if we were stuck on a clue. We will definitely come back for opening a new door.

We completed the Boardwalk room at this facility, which bases its attractions on New Jersey experiences. The room uses classic cerebral puzzles mixed with some light physical challenges (nothing too strenuous). There are a couple of minor bumps, including one of the early puzzles, which seemed disconnected with no way to realize it was even there (you aren't supposed to break things in escape rooms, of course, and this bordered on that). The other was one of the last puzzles that seemed to be calibrated away from success.

Despite these VERY minor bumps, this was a fantastic experience. The room was large and multi-faceted, the puzzles encouraged communication, and we never felt too stumped. Note that clues are delivered at the game master's discretion via television (rather than loud speaker or other in-theme gimmick). The pacing felt good. We're looking forward to returning for the Power Surge / Edison-themed room.
