Eight people is a reasonable amount of players for escape rooms. Everyone will find something to do: strategizing, taking charge, searching for clues, solving puzzles, cheering the team on, counting down the minutes, wandering from room to room or chatting up the game master. Book one of the rooms in Philadelphia and find out what will your contribution be!
As someone who does escape rooms frequently this room was neither fun nor engaging. It seemed like the whole time they were just making it up as you went. The room overall was just frustrating and had a weak finally where we just felt like, is that it?Matthew L Davis
Fantastic experience! Jack the Ripper is a very polished room with a "traditional" escape room vibe but in a very eerie environment. We liked it so much we tried their Prison Room after and it was a blast, but a COMPLETELY different experience. Both rooms are in our top 5.Joe
We would have tried Alice (new room!) but we ran out of time and had to head back. but we will come back!!!
Did this with my boyfriend for our anniversary. It was actually scary. The challenges were hard but not too bad. Allen was the best!Katrina
They have 2 rooms now but more under way, me and some friends did both and can't wait till they finish the others. Highly recommend this place.Taylor
This escape room experience is very highly recommended! My team and I went through the Chamber of Horrors, and as my 94th escape room, I have to say this easily makes it into my top 5. The sets and atmosphere were superbly well done. The space is expansive, and part of the joy was being able to explore such a vast space full of scenic moments and really clever puzzles! As a fan of escape rooms and the horror genre, I have to say that there were even a few moments that unnerved me- a grand endorsement of how immersive the experience truly was. We joined up with a group of three other folks, and I’m sure there wasn’t a single moment when we felt unable to contribute in some meaningful way. The asymmetric nature of the game ensures that your team and their specific strengths can all be showcased without running into bottlenecks and people standing around waiting. Our game master, Alan, was a great help, making sure that some of the tricky technical aspects of the game were running and we were aware of any of the challenges we may not have picked up on intuitively.Adam
All in all- Gotham Escape Rooms is a welcome addition to the thriving escape room market in Philadelphia. I would 100% recommend this team building exercise for anyone who wants to lose themselves in a room that feels more like living through a movie. I cannot wait to experience their other rooms (with 6 in total, it’ll keep me busy for a while!)
Awesome experience! We did the Chamber of Horror and loved it! The rooms were so intricate/realistic and the puzzles were great. This was by far the best escape room we have ever been to. We had a great time and can’t wait to try out the other rooms!Rebecca
