I had a really fun time playing "The Heist" with my friends. We didn't escape BUT that's what made it fun for me personally. It was challenging and I definitely would love to take another crack at it and at the other 4 or 5 rooms they currently have set up. Good fun, especially during Covid! The facility was super clean!

We did the Outer Space room with our 10-year-old and she absolutely loved it. So did her parents! While the puzzles mostly too difficult for kids, there were a few she could manage, plus it was so much fun discovering secret things in the room. I would recommend it for kids 10+, as long as you bring along an adult who knows how to solve puzzles. I found them all challenging but do-able. It was a great balance.
The location is also super because it's downtown. I try to avoid midtown whenever possible. Staff is awesome.

Loved it! One of the deciding factors for choosing this place was the ability to rent the room to yourselves without having to share it with strangers even if you don't have the maximum amount allowed. We did the detective room and it was surprisingly hard, yet fun! We did escape the room with eight minutes to spare. Afterwards Gary and a nice lady explained to us the mechanisms in the room as well as their background history. Gary was formerly an engineer and web developer, which I think was well reflected in the complex, but very creative and clever game he produced. It was definitely the highlight of my husband's birthday and the rest of our friends kept talking about how fun and challenging it was. We definitely look forward to coming back and trying the space room! We hope for more living social deals since that really helped us budget-conscious people. Thanks so much for the wonderful time!

Three generations of our family tried the Detective Story Escape room here and really had a lot of fun. We saved a bit using a Groupon deal, otherwise it would have been a bit expensive, but we had a private room for the six of us, which made the experience more enjoyable. The location is deep in a basement; you'll need to walk down two flights of stairs. The basement location, in a way, sort of adds to the atmosphere.
The backstory for the room was a little thin, but the actual puzzles were enjoyable and just challenging enough for our group, most of whom were beginners. They recommend ages 14 and up for the room, and that's probably a good idea, although we had one 11 year old in our group who enjoyed it. A group of all younger kids, however, might have a difficult time with the puzzles.
Our family had only one escape room veteran, otherwise we were all new to this experience. We ended up needing one hint, but we did manage to "escape" before time was up.
If your looking to do something different with a small group of friends or family this is a great choice.

We did the experiment room as a team of two. We have done quite a few escape rooms, and found this room to be just the right level of Challenge.

The puzzles are well thought out and well presented. We made it out with just one hint and twenty minutes to spare.

A great way to spend an hour for couples or bigger groups, highly recommended.

We will be back to do another room when we are next in NYC.

We went for my 19 year old sons birthday with 3 others ranging from 8-14. We were convince when we first saw the challenge that we’d be running around in circles, no way we’d get out of that room! In fact, with gentle assistance from the game master, we solved it with seconds to spare. I discovered new skills amongst my kids, had fun as a family and no electronics anywhere! Well worth a visit if u have an hour to spare.

This is such a fun activity with great family and friends as well as a team building event. ALejandra was very pleasant and made sure that she went through all the details with us. We chose the new game John Doe and it was much harder than we could imagine, but hey we are the type of people that love a challenge! If you like to use your mind, and have fun with friends put this on your NYC to do list.

This place stands apart from the other game rooms that have popped around the tri-state area. Thematic and well designed this place will really draw you into the story of each room. The puzzles were interactive and full of surprises.

If you are new to the whole escape the room thing great place to bring friends or family.

What an amazing place! I must say I was a bit skeptical at first as I have been to other Escape Games before and they just seemed low budget, but not this place! Escape Games NYC has been well thought trough, well maintained and just AMAZING! If you want a great Escape Game experience just go there. I went there with my Eagle Scouts troop and they loved it! It is trully challenging but not discouraging. Anyway, just go and see for yourself I promise, you won't regret it! ♡
