We came here after completing all of the Komnata Manhattan rooms (which are AMAZING) and weren't disappointed. We started at the 104 West Street location and did Doctor Frankenstein and Hex of the Chinese Jewelry Box, then moved on to the 67 West Street location for Joker's Cafe and Bullets and Broken Hearts. These rooms are the BEST in NYC, hands down - and we've done dozens. Also, shout out to Chris at 67 West - he was one of the best game masters we've worked with!Ellen D.
I had a great experience at Komnata Quest. It was my first time doing a escape room and it was amazing. I did the Jokers Cafe which was super interesting. I will totally go back and do another escape. The key master Kyle was very nice and great at explaining and starting the adventure of going into the jokers Cafe.Anna G.
My review will be as a first time escape room participant, all other rooms I do will be judged by this one!Paul T.
I'm going to start with a small negative, this is in a weird location, we had to ask a random person inside to let us pass through a building to get there.
Now the positive stuff!
First, I liked that the rooms were thematic, I guess going into this I just pictured one big room with obscure paper clues and lock boxes. It was much better than that.
The puzzles were challenging but not so difficult you'd say 'Man no one with get that.'.
We did the Joker (of Batman universe) room and really had a blast!
At the end I really liked that they could recap with you, like we did something by mistake, that worked. Then telling us that made the experience that much deeper!
Staff was super friendly, and I particularly liked the We Won options.
Honestly we're going to make the trip again from PA to try their other location.
We did The Maze, and The Vault. We loved each one! We've done dozens of escape rooms, yet we were floored by the work that has gone into these rooms. The puzzles weren't too hard, but we never felt like there wasn't work to do, or things to solve. The technical puzzles inside the vault were pretty awesome, lots of use of machines and computers felt right at home in the setting. tons of fallout references, but no prior knowledge required. The maze managed to be scary without jump scares, and more than once had our group accidentally scare each other as we explored the dark corridors.Mikey R.
So much fun, I have to say, you must go!

This is the 4th escape room I've done, and it's been, by far, the best one. I was in New York for my sister's bachelorette party and one of her requests was to do an escape room.Maryann C.
I had already done 3 and didn't really have fun experiences. I always felt overwhelmed with too many clues and nowhere to start, only one order of actions to get to the end, and poor hints.
There were 8 of us ladies attending the party, and we chose The Vault based on our group size and based on the reviews I had read.
The girl who led us in did a good job explaining general rules and then got right into character as she led us in.
Overall, there were so many rooms to unlock and go into to. And the hints were helpful and clear, making it obvious how to connect everything.
We were able to work on different tasks and made out in 45 minutes. The room was well set up, everything felt high quality, and we all really enjoyed it. I highly recommend!
