Escape rooms where the ultimate task is to steal something are becoming more and more popular. Bank heists are the most common crimes, sometimes you'll also have to rob art galleries or museums. Skillful players can try to challenge the most notorious thieves of the century. Be ready for lasers, alarm systems, secret vaults and tons of cash.
My family and I were looking for something different and fun to do as a family. This was the perfect choice. The Heist was challenging and we loved it! Ashleigh was so helpful in explaining the game and assisting us throughout. She made the experience go from amazing to phenomenal. Definitely was a great bonding experience for us. We can’t wait to try the other games when we come back. Thanks for so much fun!!!iamkatvb
The Escape Game really knows how to put on a good game! We had a blast escaping The Heist room! It was very challenging yet rewarding when we escaped with a few seconds to spare.Mpusta2016
I was excited to see that The Escape Game was coming to NYC, and they've lived up to expectations so far. The staff was friendly, helpful, and engaging throughout my visit. I also really appreciated that The Escape Game's standard of presentation was also taken seriously, as there are some escape game companies in New York that take its customers for granted.JonApana
I played "The Heist," which was a challenging but great introductory room for those who are interested in what a good escape room looks and feels like. It had a little bit of everything, in terms of puzzle design, so there's opportunity for everyone in your group to contribute and shine. With the right group of people working with you, this room is definitely worth the NYC price.
Fun experience for the whole family. Whether you escape or not enjoyment is guaranteed. Nice staff and Andrew is hilarious and great help.Salome Labrada
Fun room, but not as difficult as expected. My girlfriend and I were able to complete it by ourselves. If your looking for more of a challenge at this location try the Mission Space room.Jeff
I have been to several escape rooms and love them so when I saw Escape of a Lifetime open I said I have to come there. It is rare to meet the owner of the escape rooms but Craig the owner not only was present but he was the gamemaster. I did the Vault and did not escape but it was because of a few things. Since I have done so many escape rooms I overlooked some of the more simple clues and details. Doing this escape room made me reevaluate how I play escape rooms which is a good thing:) The Vault was well put together. Craig took the time to work on the details so it actually seemed like I was in a vault. Craig personally delivers the clues when you request one and it doesn't take him a long time to give the clue which has been an issue I had with other places who use the gamemaster entering the room. Craig is very energetic and you can see that escape rooms are his 'lifetime' of work as he gives it his all. He mentioned that he is developing others rooms and the rooms have themes I have not heard of in other escape room companies so I will definitely be backmikejrs
