Escape the Room is a fun, interactive game taking place in various US cities. While it looks like any other ordinary room, it’s actually a mystery puzzle. Find the hidden objects, figure out the clues and solve the puzzles to earn your freedom and “Escape the Room.” You have 60 minutes, so be quick! Come with your friends, family and coworkers and have a great time.
Over the past few years thousands upon thousands of players have tested their mettle in real life escape rooms across the globe. These narrative puzzle adventures put the players in a race against the clock to identify and solve a series of increasingly challenging puzzles. Starting with one game played in New York City in October of 2013, Escape the Room has grown into what is now known as the premiere live game and entertainment company in the United States. Developed by an all-star team of puzzle designers, theme park engineers and set designers, Escape the Room creates interactive, immersive games rooted in hyper-realistic scenarios with state of the art technology that sets the bar for experiential entertainment. With dozens of “rooms” in multiple cities across the country, including Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Scottsdale, Houston and Atlanta, Escape the Room brings gaming into the real world.
Worst Experience of My Life! To begin, we were rushed into the room without instructions or the storyline explained. The staff was atrocious. And that’s an understatement. Even though we arrived on time, and we were late getting into the room due to the staff, they started our 1 hour timer before we even entered the room. We never were able to be immersed into the story as they yelled at us over the speaker because they were thought we cheated and when we proved we didn’t cheat they put us on “high surveillance.” As the rules were never explained to us we were unaware of the no photo rule. When a member of my group took a selfie, that didn’t not show any of the room, the flood lights were turned on and the entire game was disabled without warning by the staff. No refund was given! All I can say is never attend this place and I hope the staff (specifically the 19 year old boy with purple hair) is fired.Brooklynn
The guy with the purple hair and butterfly necklaces (he refused to give his name) was the most rude employee I ever had the displeasure of encountering.
Soooooo much fun!!!!Rich
Thomas's is the man!!!
Located on the 3rd floor by Bloomingdale's. It's a must do after a meal. We did the clock tower. Can you escape?
We visited Escape The Room LA in Nov 2019 and played their "Cartman's Escape Room"Cici
Cartman: “Screw you guys, I’m going to skoooool!”
ETR: You mean escape from school?
Cartman: “Respect ma authoritah!”
ETR: ….” Oh my God, they killed Kenny!”
And so it begins…
HIT THE BULLSEYE
-This room had us laughing the entire time. From the original South Park dialog to the interactive hint system given by the game master, we loved being called “Dumb”.
-We haven’t seen much puzzles that can incorporate humor, so this was entertaining.
-Hint system was fun and different. We enjoyed not having to hold a walkie talkie.
-We felt like we’ve been transported into the actual cartoon. The vibrant colors of the room created a happy atmosphere right away.
MISSED THE MARK
-Although most props were well made, some seemed to have needed some update already. One particular puzzle had some parts of the pen marks that were worn off. Could those be printed on instead?
-Although outside knowledge of the show was not needed to solve the puzzles, some puzzle pieces did have a relevance to the show and because we haven’t seen the episode, we did not get the correlation.
-One item was not mentioned to us at the beginning that was usable during the game play which caused us a hint later on since we thought everything that was needed was in the room already. It may be worth it for the game master to double check to make sure that the players have what they needed before entering the room.
TAKE A SHOT?
Cartman’s Escape Room is officially licensed with South Park & Comedy Central. This definitely helped with how authentic the set designed looked. If you are a South Park fan and love some comedy, this is a must do room. We had a few minutes left on the clock with just the two of us but there were a lot to explore and do in the room. Ideally 4-6 people would be a great number for this room. Don’t let Cartman call you “dumb” and save Kenny!
I love itMichael
