750 Hyde St, San Francisco, CA 94109 ()
I originally found this room though an living social deal. And of course i waited till the very last minute before the coupon expired. I tried to gather a bunch of people together so we can go enjoy it. But my boyfriend forgot to actually book the sicko room!! (argh) So I called the same day and asked if we can do another room (Geek Room). The guy (who I assumed is the owner) say it was fine and he would honor the coupon. AWESOME!!Christina L.
When me and my party got there for our 7:15 experience, we were both they were running 30 minutes behind. No biggie, they had some board games, jingo, and an foosball table to entertain us. They also had a huge case of water for us, which was incredibly thoughtful!
Ok... So I'm a little bias because I've done most of the escape rooms/events around the bay area. The room rating is where I took off 2 stars.
GEEK ROOM: (No Spoilers)
The room itself was quite small. No wonder it's max of 6 people! But there was definitely enough space for everyone to move around. The plot itself was unique (but one thing I noticed was that the description I read on the website wasn't the description the staff member told us). The puzzles were creative, but fairly easy. The staff was extremely friendly and provided us with one hint that we would have never gotten... even though it was in plain sight.

I'm sad to say that I cannot recommend this room. The price isn't worth it. Although, I thought the room was creative and the staff/owner were super nice! The room was too easy and there wasn't enough puzzle. But then again, I've been to many escape rooms/events so my view has shifted. Who knows, this might be a great beginner escape room before you move on to the big contenders.
