In the following escape rooms, admission is purchased by each individual player. You may be placed with strangers if the maximum room capacity is not met by your team. You can guarantee a private experience only if you purchase all of the tickets for your preferred time slot.
It was really cool. The game was super fun and challenging. We bring our inters there and they loved it. They do have a great Italian restaurant on the first floor of the building, so we went there right after our game.Sarha
Never seen a game like this before. It’s like an escape game but need to get into this suitcase. It looks like a high end movie prop, with keypad on top, and you get some gadgets to pick codes and such. Than it opens to more puzzles and another level and another level. Very clever.
The military guy on TV gave some story about evil corporation and we worked on 8 cases at different tables. Ended up helping each other otherwise we probably wouldn’t have finished it in time.
Their “secret safe house” was a bit hard to find. Check the address in the email. we went to their main office first but it’s just a block away. No big deal.
Booked Space Bus after playing the King Arthur game and it was worth it.Yousef
To start with it is a GORGEOUS game. I played a few sci-fi themed escape games around the world and this one is the best one yet. The deep rumble of engines and a little bit of movement made it so real!
The game puzzles are well done and games allow for many things to be done at the same time. Also, some puzzles could be solved in more than one way.
Be sure not to overcomplicate, because in many cases the solution is simpler than you think.
I did Escape Oakland's newest room, The Spy Game, today and it was very challenging but also quite fun. It's their toughest room, with an 8-10% escape rate. (There seems to have been some misinformation on here stemming from another reviewer's description of the room difficulties based on their subjective opinion, but the website posts the % escape rates for each room.)Jennifer L.
I'd recommend The Spy Game for groups of experienced escape roomers. If your team has first-timers, you might want to consider one of their easier rooms instead. I think first-timers might feel a little frustrated by this one. It's not the flashiest room, but there are a ton of puzzles to chew on and lot of variety in types of puzzles. I think this is a great room to try if you're someone who is really in it for the puzzles and a good challenge. I'm not as into rooms that have Hollywood-movie-set-esque decorations but easy puzzles, so I'm glad I chose this one.
I was on the fence about giving them a 4 or a 5, but settled on 5 because they were patient with my team after we didn't escape the room in time. In addition to giving us like 10 minutes extra, they were nice about one of the guys who kept trying to continue to solve stuff when they were explaining the clues to us, etc.
My general feeling is that even though they are relatively new and don't have the super fancy bells and whistles of some of the larger and more established escape room companies, they seem dedicated to trying to make solid puzzles/rooms. I think they'll continue to improve their rooms and the experience overall.
Awesome place! My husband and I started with The Show Must Go On; it seriously felt like we had just walked backstage in an actual theatre when we entered the room (and I'm a stage manager IRL). It was a blast! The four rooms' storylines are all interconnected, which is a fantastic element; we're definitely looking forward to going back and doing the rest! Plus the owner, Brian, is SUPER nice.Jenni
Great game - intelligent one! We were 75 ppl, the game was one of our team-building activities. Recommend for HR/Community managers to consider!Helen
