From creepy themes to chilling thrillers and to horror movies with actors involved, you can decide just how scared you want to be when trying to make a successful escape! Most of the rooms aren't actually meant to scare you too much, just remember: your objective is to escape with your life. Ghosts, zombies and serial killers of Philadelphia are dying to meet you!
This was a really great escape room- the quality was noticeably better than others I've been to. It was challenging and rewarding. Only critique is the mic system makes it kinda annoying/hard to hear the hints/prompts. I bet they've fixed it by now- the guys are all obviously very hard working and dedicated to making a nice experience for customersTucker
Great game master! Exciting and challenging room.Penelope
These rooms were AMAZING. We did all three - Chamber of Horrors, Game of Stones, and Sleeping Spirits - and loved each more than the last. Chamber of Horrors was first, and was wonderfully gory and suspenseful, a must for horror movie lovers. Next up was Game of Stones, which was so much fun - we loved the theme and all of the clues and props. Last up was Sleeping Spirits, which was a super fun, creepy room (we went home and watched 1408, the story it's based on). These were some of the best, most theatrical rooms we've done, and we've done a lot (50+!) A must-do if you love rooms!Ellen
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
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!)
