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.
My least favorite panic room i’ve ever done. We got stuck on an early puzzle, and did not understand it even after the lady in the room was trying to show us. There was no way to move forward, and so we were stuck for 40 minutes (as all puzzles are sequential). We got told the answer only 3 minutes before the end, and so had no way to see the rest of the room. Also, the puzzles were not really related to the theme.Victor
We were anxiously awaiting the opening of the logan square location (because we already escaped from their other location) and had a blast. We did 2 rooms this day. The first, wizard trials went extremely smooth, but in red wire room we ran into some glitches. Since it was the first time anyone had done it i can totally understand. We had about a 10 minute wait to try and resolve the issue to no avail. Had to skip some of the locks:(.Jessica B.
6 of us did the Wizard room challenge which was not easy but we made it through the three rooms in 56 minutes The place is a little worn but clean and the guide was helpful It can take him awhile to respond to the hint call This was my first experience so I cannot compare to others but I will do it again Fun engaging group activity and a great way to spend an hour before dinner The parking is awful Go to garage on 16th and HoffTerrithetripp
I enjoyed the immersive quality of the room and how the decorations added to it, and my friend said they enjoyed it more than other escape rooms from different companies.Klo P T.
Some symbols need to be repainted, but we still solved it easily enough.
The music that played when you won helped award your group a sense of accomplishment!
Omg this was so much fun! We went as a family had a blast.Sam I am
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
