    AMAZING PUZZLES, EXPERIENCE and GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE!
    We have vistied 3 times and have loved each room we did! We brought our 9 year old with friends to the easiest one recently and they had an amazing time! Puzzles are hard without being impossible - Highly reccomended! Friendly and lovely staff!

    Super fun experience
    A friend and I did this escape room together and had a great time! We did the Mafia Blackout, which was really well-organized and well-planned: challenging without being too difficult, and an overall fantastic time. We ended up doing the Boardwalk Blast as well since it was available after we finished with the mafia room, and it was also a great time. Both rooms were uniquely-themed; I've been to several escape rooms and many of them have more standard themes (excavations, magic, nuclear blasts), but these two rooms were more creative.

    Mafia Escape Room
    We had a blast at Escape Garden State. It was our first time there and the employees were really nice and helpful. We decided to do the hardest escape room (even though we were never there before) and it was definitely challenging. I would suggest doing this room with more than 2 people, but it was still a LOT of fun.

    Better than expected!
    Great staff, fun rooms, complex tasks that were definitely doable but took a lot of brain power. My friend and I originally booked just one room, but afterwards immediately booked another! There were just two of us and we escaped one room and completed about 80% of the other. Definitely recommend.

    Great fun!
    4 of us went to Escape Garden State on Saturday afternoon and we had a lot of fun. It was our first time and did not really know what to expect. One thing I wish I knew when I booked was difficulty level of each activity. I picked Mafia related one and it turned out to be one of the more difficult ones. We could have used an easier one for our first visit. I recommend rating activity difficulty level on the booking page.

We have tried all 4 rooms and this place has one of the best flows and props. The flow of the puzzles/clues is important and they do a great job. Just wish there was new one coming since we have completed all the rooms.

This was our first escape room, and the boardwalk theme couldn’t have been more perfect. The staff was awesome and we definitely want to try some of the more challenging rooms soon.

Had a really great time, but unfortunately didn’t make it out in time from the Mafia Blackout. Definitely a challenging puzzle to solve!

Mafia escape room was awesome. Had such a great time and a great tribute to the Sopranos. Friends and I will be back to try the other rooms.
