What Makes The Escape Effect Different From America’s Escape Game?


If you’re thinking of visiting an escape room soon, be sure to consider all the options Orlando has to offer.  In this article, we’ll discuss the differences between The Escape Effect and America’s Escape Game so that you can make a better-informed decision when reserving your next experience.

Better Value.

America’s Escape Game charges $35 for all of their 60-minute experiences and $45 for their single 75-minute experience.

The Escape Effect charges between $39.95 and $64.95 for experiences ranging between 75 minutes and 2 hours based on the day of the week and the game in question.

If you do the math, you’ll understand that you actually pay less per minute at The Escape Effect.

All The Help You Want.

Prior to 2017, most escape rooms employed a very video game-inspired “3 hints and done” rule.  When The Escape Effect opened in 2017, we changed up the hint system and were the first to recognize that guests play escape rooms for different reasons, so we offered to play with unlimited hints and no penalties.

America’s Escape Game was one of these venues that limited hints.  Nowadays, we think if you ask your guide for unlimited help, they’ll oblige.

Longer Games.

If you went to a movie and it was over in 60 minutes, would you be satisfied?

America’s Escape Game has five games at 60 minutes and one at 75 minutes.

The Escape Effect is the first to introduce escape rooms longer than 60 minutes.  In fact, A Knight To Escape runs a full two hours – it’s one of only two 2-hour escape rooms in the entire country!

Brand New Themes.

As you play more and more escape rooms, you’re bound to see themes repeat themselves – “aliens”, “mad scientists”, “pirates”, and more.

If you’re looking for a fresh theme, you can try America’s Escape Game’s Contract or Tomb Of Monthu, which places you in an Egyptian setting.

At The Escape Effect, you’ll be able to choose from four awesome themes, including a Greek temple or a 1920s Theatre.

No Minimums Required.

The regularly accepted minimum for escape rooms is typically advertised as two players.

America’s Escape Game requires that players pay for a minimum of four tickets on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays even if less than four players will actually participate.  All of their rooms can physically be played with one player.

At The Escape Effect, we keep with 2-player minimums, allow single players on occasion, and only require four players for A Knight To Escape because the puzzles physically require it.

Have you been convinced?

Of course, we hope you’ll select The Escape Effect for your next escape room.  But even if you choose to play at America’s Escape Game this time, we sincerely hope you enjoy yourselves.  Escape rooms can be so much fun and after you’re done playing there, we hope you’ll be curious what’s behind door #2…
