I'm a first timer and my friends had experienced another escape room before. We did the House in the Woods and found it very challenging. There were only 3 of us and did not make it, but I was impressed with the detail of the puzzles. Recommend it for an hour of angst and realization of one's incompetence...kidding...it was fun!Jane W.
Super fun! My husband and I have probably done 25+ escape rooms both in the Bay and in other states and countries. (You would think we're really good at them, but no we just enjoy them .) We did the Mystery Room and didn't escape in time (got out in just over an hour). The host was really attentive (he wasn't in the room, but I guess from the monitors he could tell when we were struggling) and asked if we wanted clues at just the right times. He was super nice and friendly too and is why I give this place five stars instead of the four I would probably give just for the room itself.Melissa B.
Storyline and theme was just okay, but it was still an overall good time. Would recommend this for a fun little date, the room is doable by two people.
I did the murder room with a group of my friends. We worked out butts off to figure out the puzzles and beat the room with 1 minute and 30 seconds left before the hour expired. The room as challenging but totally doable. Keep yourself organized and have fun! Great way to build team spirit and have a fun group date.Beau S.
Best tip is to embrace the experience, lose yourself in the game and you'll have a great time.
The PEZ crew was very helpful and the rooms were very well done.
5/5 would recommend.
A fun way to spend time with a small group of friends or colleagues, solving a murder! Get a diverse group of buddies and each can work on a different clue or puzzle - we solved the "crime" and escaped with only a few moments to spare. If you're looking for a team building exercise - look no further.Doña S.
We visited Pacific Escape back in April. It was a long drive for us to Pacifica, CA but it was a nice & scenic one near the coastline. There’s plenty of parking outside of Pacifica Escape Zone. When you pull into the complex, you might not be able to see the name Pacifica Escape Zone as it’s named as their parent company “Anime Imports”.Cici
In addition to Pacifica Escape Zone, the owner also owns a comic book store in the near vicinity so if you are a comic book fan, make sure you check it out! As we entered the lobby area, there’s really no check in or décor which we thought this could be improved to give the player the whole experience. Today, we are trying their newest room called “House in the Woods”. They currently offer two rooms total with "Murder Scene" being the first. In "House in the Woods", you are playing in the dark for the majority of the time which makes it quite challenging. If you like escape rooms with locks, this is the one for you! Since there is a lot to do in this room for just two people, we were 95% in and didn't escape in time. Pacifica Escape Zone is trying to acquire another space within same complex to create another room! We can't wait to see what they have planned for their future!
This was my first escape room. I had an absolute blast. The puzzles were fun, varied, and some were quite tough! Our Game Master was super friendly, even letting us go back into the room afterwards to talk about the design a bit more, and catch up on puzzles we'd missed (since we divided & conquered our way through most). Loved the setting and theme -- and learned a bit about some historical figures along the way.Adam Easterling
