An escape room experience in itself is always an adventure. But when the theme requires you to indulge in an unusual, exciting and possibly a little dangerous activity, no one can say no!
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!
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
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!
The Vault: So well done. I don't play a lot of video games, but I appreciated the attention to detail. My boyfriend spent the entire time oohing and aahing about the minutiae. Great puzzles, no video game knowledge required.Ellen D.
I've done a couple escape rooms before in NYC (and I work at one!) and this is the best I've been to yet. Beautiful design with challenging, unique puzzles and a sweet touchscreen communication interface. Also, the guy running the games while we were there, David, was awesome-- friendly and very helpful!Casey J.
I love this place. I took my boyfriend here and we had such a great time. It's better with more people so everyone is thinking but overall it was supper fun and we will definitely go back. Prices are pretty decent too!!Jessica S.
