The original escape rooms were launched in Budapest in early 2011. With more than a hundred locations now, live escape games have become the number one tourist action of the Hungarian capital.
The first PanIQ Room opened its doors in March 2012 in Hungary, and it belongs to some of the first escape rooms in the world. Entering the US market in 2014, PanIQ Room Hollywood opened with two themes, and after the great success of the first unit, PanIQ Room started to expand quickly opening new units in San Francisco, San Diego, Miami, Phoenix and Chicago. In February of 2016, our team launched MagIQ Room – an escape room concept specialized for kids & families – in Beverly Hills, California and later that year PanIQ Room expanded to Washington DC as well.
In early 2017, PanIQ Escape Room became an officially registered escape room franchise. This year the brand will open new units in Dallas, Houston, New York and the Silicon Valley.
The puzzles in this room were neither creative nor rewarding, and they required no skill. There was a point where we had to play glorified flappy bird. Why would I pay to play glorified flappy bird? I wouldn't if I had known better.Greta Abbe-Good
I would have rated this even lower if it weren't for the very nice, but overworked staff
Great experience! We had tons of fun and Red did a great job getting us started! We did the Chainsaw Massacre room and we escaped with 20 minutes to spare. We cannot wait to come back again and try another room!jechavez2
We went to Paniq Room Houston and had a blast. Red (our host) explained what we were and were not allowed to do to solve the puzzle and we nailed it. We escaped from the chainsaw massacre with 18 minutes left—which was a much better than our photo finish in the Wild West escape room. Paniq is a lot of fun every time we come.Jwstretch
Hey dudes! This place was Heckin ' Amazin'! Thanks to my genius family and Lia's wonderful help and advice throughout, we have become the saviors of Houston and escaped the Bunker. You're welcome everyone. For real though, this was super fun. Give it a try.Blyake
We had a fantastic time. The puzzles were clever and required all of our 6 people to participate fully. Time went by fast but we broke out...with a few tips. Thanks Lia (game master) for a fun experience!!Vacationer
This escape room was a lot of fun! We came here because we had a groupon. We did the military bunker room. There was an issue where the person giving us the clues was unsure of how to unlock one of the chests. She had to call someone for help which took about 10 minutes, but she gave us the full time back so we didn't lose any time.Jana G.
The only downside is the location. It wasn't hard to find street parking; however, it's in a pretty sketchy area so make sure you don't leave anything valuable in your car.
