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.
Had a great time!! This is something you must do. The gentleman was fun and professional, highly recommend.Tanja R.
My friends and I had a fun time here! The manager is so very nice and accomodating, and it was a great experience overall. I would highly recommend this location and to absolutely give it a try if you're debating. The location is also a short walk to many great restaraunts and bars for afterwards, which is a plus!Jo S.
Yessss I had had a ball we did jump the gun but all and all I had a ball we were soooooo new to this experience but on a scale of new and boring to new and exciting we definitely PanIQed in the PanIQ room lolLouvenia V.
If you have never done this before this is definitely a place to test the waters.
Btw we did the voodoo room and this is the most difficult room needless to say we were 75% done TAKE IT ROOM BY ROOM LOL
I had the complete opposite experience from Amy. The staff did not seem to care at all that we were struggling. The Wild West rooms were too dark for 3/4 of our group to see the clues/puzzles. Did not get the sense that they were watching our progress and were willing to help us. The staff members were like robots in and out of the room. Didn't adjust their words at all to have a conversation with us/make us feel welcome/seem like they cared about our experience. One of the clues was not reset properly, wasting our time (we solved a puzzle to open something, and there was nothing there. The "hidden" object was sitting out in the open the whole time. The rooms were dirty and we were looking for clues in amongst dust/hair. I had a much better experience at a smaller business that really seemed to care about our enjoyment of the room and was watching us closely and ready to suggest that we use a clue so we'd finish in time. It would have been lovely if this game master had turned up the lights or allowed us to use our phones' flashlights so that we could see better and have a chance of completing the room. We also did not know how many rooms the puzzle involved, so we thought we were on track to finish and then discovered there was a whole other larger room with the majority of the work in it. This room is advertised as good for beginnners, but you need a large group with young eyes to complete this room if you are beginners. Our group was obviously not ready for this room, but I really think that there were issues with our experience separate from our insufficient puzzle-solving abilities.Katie Watkins

We had a fun time and our guide was super helpful. Very clever clues made it challenging and fun. We did all the room. All were fun
Had a blast! Didn't quite manage to solve the voodoo spirits room, but made it pretty far. Ammon was a great spiritual guide, and I would come back in a heartbeat.Stephanie
