Amazing Escape Room Reviews

Real escape room reviews from real guests who actually played at The Escape Effect.

Keep designing these masterpieces

As a huge fan of the middle ages, Knight to Escape hits every bar you would want to imagine. We have done every room there so far and the tech and traditional lock blend is perfect. Every room is top in class without exception. No one has a Sherlock room that does the series justice until now. 100+ rooms under my belt in 2 countries and multiple states and this company is in my top 2 without question.



Wow! That was so much fun!!

I took my 3 sons and 2 of their girlfriends to the Fright Before Your Eyes last night and it was intriguing. The puzzles were all different and completely solvable with thought. At the very end when we ran out of ideas, the person who works there gave us very subtle directions which got us going again. We solved all the puzzles and escaped. I felt we had so much fun for the $ that I bought us all t-shirts to show the business our appreciation. We are DEFINITELY going back regularly.



Fantastic rooms, great gameplay!!!

My wife and I have done almost 300 rooms, and were looking forward to our first 2 hour long room, Knight to Escape! It was amazing, and definitely needed the whole 2 hours! We did all the rooms here and would highly recommend them to beginners and enthusiasts! We really enjoyed the innovative gameplay of Encore, and had a blast in Sherlock Studies! We also really enjoyed the enthusiasm, support, and friendliness of our game master Hayden and the owner Dan (who was genuinely interested in our take on the rooms and the puzzles, and was great to talk with)!! Thanks! We highly recommend doing all the rooms here!

Our group of six loved it

This wonderful, quasi-miraculous adventure into Greek Mythology was so enjoyable and so unexpected it felt like The Escape Effect granted a wish I didn’t even know I had.

Our team had an incredible time at the Escape Effect! The staff was very helpful and the room difficulty really put us to the test!



I have done a few escape rooms, but none have compared to The Escape Effect

First of all, the staff was extremely nice and helpful. The check in process was easy and they explained everything in detail… even showing you how to unlock a certain device that you would eventually need to know how to open. The room that we had to get out of had a time limit of 2 hours. It was hard, but it was a team effort without a doubt… let’s just say you had to split up into two teams and find each other before finding the ultimate way out. None of us had experienced that before and it was super fun!! I am happy to report that with 54 seconds left on the clock.. we made it out!!! Overall we had a great time and we definitely want to go back and try the other rooms!! Thank you Escape Effect staff for everything!



We had such an awesome experience

We had such an awesome experience! We decided to bring in the New Years doing what we love most- playing escape games! At Odds with The Gods was such a super cool room. The storyline and puzzles were thought out well and this company always provides top-notch entertainment!




As soon as you walk in the door you are met with these huge imposing beautiful glass posters, and that’s when the excitement started to build. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable, the complimentary water bottles were a refreshing treat, and the brain teasers on the screen as we waited helped to “warm up” our out of the box thinking. We did the Encore room and without giving anything away, it was a lot of fun, featured a really cool environment mechanic, that was my favorite prop I have ever seen in an escape room, and we finished with 2 minutes to spare!



Fun and creative rooms!

We were in town visiting for the long weekend and did both At Odds with the Gods and Encore. I really enjoyed how creative the rooms were, and that each one has its own unique spin on the typical escape room experience. Dan the owner was incredibly kind and welcoming, and really made us feel at home! I would definitely recommend The Escape Effect, and I look forward to coming to visit again!



To call At Odds With The Gods a masterpiece is an understatement

To avoid the wrath of a petty deity, artists would deliberately introduce a small flaw into every masterpiece ‘so as to not offend the Gods.’ But despite being an avid fan of Greek myth himself, it seems that designer Dan Suleski has broken with tradition and created an escape room so perfect that we can only hope Zeus doesn’t catch wind of it.

After completing 40+ rooms, this place is definitely on the top

This place is a must whether you are new to escape rooms (highly suggest Encore) or an enthusiast (A Knights Escape).



I absolutely love the staff and the experience!

The staff gave up their Christmas so that families like us who only get together a couple of times a year, to have a fun family bonding adventure. This was our family’s first escape experience, but will not be our last! They were helpful when needed, but still gave us time to figure this out on our own. Everything from the theming, puzzles, and Staff was perfect. Great way to spend a holiday evening with a bunch of older children. Thank you again.
