Wife and I did an escape room while on vacation and ever since then we have been doing one every two months or so with family. Wife and I have done plenty of them with both sides of our family. We booked one here on a whim for us and 3 members of her family, total of 5 people. We did the Aztec Ruins room and had a blast. This escape room is locally owned meaning that it can be hit or miss as far as quality, but this one was a HUGE HIT. There were multiple ways to escape and arrive at the final code (which is a first for us), and the room wasn't just about finding keys and unlocking locks. There were other puzzles and the atmosphere in the room was well put together as well. The service you get at these locally owned and operated Escape rooms is always the best. We will be back for more escapes in the future.

This place is wonderful! Took 6 boys (my sons birthday) around 9 years old to do the Christmas escape room and they had so much fun! Staff was wonderful and very patient even when the boys got a bit hyper at times. They also have a wonderful gaming room too. We plan on going back except my husband and I will leave the boys home and do a date night next time :)

Escape Kings is definitely a sold escape room option. We've only done one room there, but will be back for more. The room was solidly put together, and there was a good mix of puzzle type. The puzzles mostly focused on finding keys or combinations for locks, but the process of getting to those answers was fun. This is a family run business, and we could tell by the personal service that we got from the owner. The other thing that I appreciated was that they have several rooms for younger escapers. We were able to bring our 7-year old as a birthday present. He loved the experience, and the others in the room (all seasoned) didn't feel like the room had been dumbed down to allow children. We thought it was a good implementation, and was a good introduction for him, while still being engaging for the rest of us. We'll definitely be back to try the other rooms, both with our kid and without.

I have done several escape rooms in the past, which were all fun. However, this place was definitely tops compared to them. My boss is a huge fan not only of escape rooms, but the team building aspect that they can provide to a corporate event. It can demonstrate a wider set of employee talents and strengths to 'think outside of the box', which makes them ideal. Not to mention that everyone always has a blast outside of the office environment! Escape Kings excels at this form of entertainment as it's clear from the onset that the owners are not only very proud of their business, but have taken great care in crafting the rooms. We did the Aztec room with a group of 7 people and managed to find our way out with ~7 minutes remaining, and 3 hints. The puzzles and hidden clues to unlock all of the locks are all logical - you just need to think 'differently' sometimes to get them. Every piece of the puzzles worked as intended, which was great (and something I cannot say for the other places I've visited). Even though we completed the room in the traditional steps, I loved that there were alternative 'easy/early-out' solutions that we could have discovered. Further demonstrating his pride in his escape rooms, the owner SHOWED us the secrets we had missed and explained the logic behind the clues. He even complimented us on some of our actions. It made us feel very much part of the experience. Prior escape rooms I've visited refused to divulge the actual escape when we failed to complete it, maybe hoping we'd come back, and pay again for a second try. Not this place... And don't e-mail me asking for the secrets!! Afterwards, we were treated to a sped-up video of our escape on a huge screen, which was hilarious and a great way to end the experience. But it did not need to end there, as Escape Kings also has a large variety of gaming experiences for kids of all ages. I would definitely recommend this location to anyone else looking for a fun experience that is a bit outside of the norm!

Family owned and family friendly! Kids had a blast doing the Christmas room and we will definitely be returning soon. Owners were very kind and dedicated , rooms were well thought out and challenging
