A prison break scenario is a solid contender for the most popular escape rooms genre. What law-abiding citizen wouldn't want to try it out and attempt the impossible escape? Here it's all about teamwork and communication. Best for bonding and getting to know each other better.
This was my 13th escape room, 5th from the Escape Game. The first three were in Chicago, 4th in Austin, and this one was no disappointment. My husband's first experience with TEG, Prison Break was a lot of fun. We ended up with two other couples, but it turns out, we definitely benefited from the extra help. We started separated in two cells and had to work together a bit to escape our first rooms. I won't get into too much detail beyond that, but I am always beyond impressed with TEG's production and attention to detail. They have a great balance of clues and misdirections. They are super prompt with their clue giving when you request it. You can take advantage of 3 clues, but if you need more they would be able to offer you some. We escaped with 90 seconds to spare. It was a blast- highly recommend it. Conveniently located midtown.kelleycoull
Unbelievably fun!! I played both the playground room and Prison break and it was amazing!!! Owen, our guide, was phenomenal and so kind! Definitely coming back again soon!Sydne L.
My family and I loved the Escape Game and would highly recommend it. Three of us had never played while our other two family members had played. The staff were friendly and helpful. We had so much fun with the Gold rush room, we also played the Prison Break room. It was my daughters 19th birthday and after the prison break room, all the staff had signed a birthday card for her.juliep
Thank you for a great time.
The Prison cell felt so real; It was an amazing experience and escape. We escaped with just 8 seconds left!!!!jackrV4174IX
So happy that I found this amazing place in the city!! An immersive experience that will you have you lost in the scenery all while challenging yourself in more aspect than one in order to make your way out the room in the hour given. Whether I played with a friend or a party I had just met that day, it brought out the best skills of everybody involved. My favorite room had to be the Prison Break room where the players of the game are split into two different cells and had to communicate by describing what each other saw in their cells. My biggest tips would be to work as a team and be vocal! Overall a great experience!! Will definitely be back to play the games I haven't had to chance to yet!David
I am an alumni of probably 30 rooms by now in several countries, and this one is not among the good ones on my list.Dorri
A good puzzle should be challenging, because it requires creativity, intelligence, etc. A bad puzzle is a puzzle you know how to solve early on, but waste a lot of time due to technicalities, reliance on luck, or ill-execution. This room had one or two good puzzles and too many bad ones in my view. I agree with other reviews that the set is well executed, but I'm afraid it is not enough.
