Am I Really Locked In A Room?

Am I Really Locked In A Room?

The idea of being locked in a room with no easy way out is both exciting and exhilarating, giving adventure-seekers from all walks of life an unparalleled challenge.

Escape rooms have taken the country by storm, providing an amazing activity for birthday parties, bachelor and bachelorette bashes, work events, and so much more. The concept is clear: groups of two to twelve participants are locked in a room full of puzzles, clues, and brain teasers with only 60 minutes to fight for freedom. With only 20% to 40% of participants making it out before time is gone, a successful escape is the ultimate goal.

As the door closes and the clock starts, however, one major question remains: am I really locked in a room?

Am I Really Locked In a Room?

The simple answer? Yes!

At EscapeWorks Denver, all of our escape rooms are really locked once the timer starts to count down, with no backup key or back door exit. We believe that physically locking participants into their rooms with no easy way out enhances the intensity and excitement that comes with an escape room, providing a pulse-pounding experience you can’t find anywhere else. With no choice but to solve the puzzle, our participants are dedicated to the task at hand, putting their heads together to try to find the way out before it’s too late.

Eager for a challenging adventure? Anxious about making it out on time? Good! That’s the fun of an escape room. But don’t worry – if a problem arises, you’ll be just fine.

A Focus on Safety

Our realistic escape rooms are designed to be a thrilling race against the clock, but that doesn’t mean we’d ever put our customers in harm’s way. Despite locked doors, we work tirelessly to create a safe, comfortable destination for everyone. If an emergency should arise or a customer chooses to end the game early, our doors will unlock and all participants will be able to exit immediately. Through a unique system of exit codes and non-stop video monitoring, our personnel is seconds away should an accident occur. You will never be in any danger while at EscapeWorks Denver and our staff is trained thoroughly to ensure all customer experiences are as unforgettable as possible.

Still inside after 60 minutes and worried you’ll be trapped forever? Don’t be. When time runs out, the doors will be unlocked and all players will be escorted out by a member of the EscapeWorks Denver team.

If intellectual stimulation, competitive spirit, and the ability to best your peers sound like a great way to spend an afternoon, you’re in the right place. With the heart-pounding, adrenaline-boosting power of escape rooms, you can put your skills to the test to come out on top. EscapeWorks Denver is the top facility of its kind in Colorado, providing regularly rotating themes, puzzles at numerous skill levels, and some of the biggest twists and surprises in the industry. Every visit provides a brand new opportunity to break free, offering unlimited fun for those ages 12 and up.

The Reviews

  • review rating 5  Did the "Beyond the Flower Shop" room with a group of six. The room was well thought out and very enjoyable. Challenging, but perfect for a group of beginners. Alisha working the front desk was amazing at introducing us to the storyline and walking us through how to do the game. She provided help at perfect times and we wouldn't have made it through without her. Will definitely be coming back with my group because of her!

  • review rating 5  Went here as a small group recently and had a great time. Instructions from the staff were pretty clear at the beginning and helpful in their instructions in explaining how to try to solve the room. Trace was a great guide for this experience and would happily go again.

    review rating 5  We had a blast! We originally did the Casino Heist, however, there were some complications with the room. Dice and Emilia provided us with wonderful customer service and had us do Outbreak instead. We appreciated how much they cared about experience and we ended up having a great time. Highly recommend if you’re in the downtown Denver area and looking for some fun!

    review rating 5  The 1920’s Speakeasy was a ton of fun! I did this with my coworkers and it was a great team bonding experience that was just challenging enough. Our Escape Room Host, Sierra, was fantastic and made the experience that much better!

  • review rating 5  Their flower shop was quite enjoyable, and Dana delivered with a lovely performance. Give her a raise 😁I've only done one room, but it was a great time. It was a bit challenging, yet did not feel too difficult for all levels of problem solving.

  • review rating 5  This was our very first Escape room we've ever done and it was the perfect choice. Both our guides were phenomenal! Energetic and you can clearly tell they enjoy what they do. We experienced the Egyptian Tomb and finished with 4:33 left on the clock. Next we did the Beyond the Flower Shop. We barely missed it but we had a blast. Will definitely be back!!!!

    review rating 5  Emilia was fun, helpful and friendly. My husband and I were joined by a family to attempt an escape out of the Egyptian Tomb and unfortunately failed {if only we had 2 more minutes and we would have escaped!} but had a fun time and would definitely recommend!

  • review rating 5  EscapeWorks Denver was an amazing experience! We did a team outing for 2 large groups with our sales team and everyone came out so impressed. I had never done one but many in our group have, they all were at the conclusion that this was the best they have done so far! Great team building experience and very cost effective if on a budget. Savannah was awesome along with the staff that helped with our experience!

    review rating 5  Emilia did a great job explaining the rules. Wow! What an experience! We did the outbreak room. It was super similar to my childhood growing up! However, this time I was able to leave the room after an hour. What a relief! Anyway, I had a lot of fun and won't be testifying against anyone at this place in the future. Five stars!

  • review rating 5  Very considerate and nice staff and a great time! My group was placed with two other people randomly and they kind of took over the whole puzzle. The employees pulled us aside to let us know what they saw and they wanted to make sure we had a great experience of our own so they gave us a coupon to come back another time. They were really helpful from beginning to end and it was super fun!

    review rating 5  Troy and Tommy Bohan with my son Paul Garcia-Lance and myself had the best of times trying to get out of the Egyptian tomb. We were seconds away but fell short of solving the mystery and we’re buried alive. Thank you so much for an enjoyable evening and a special shout out to Taylor and Sierra who moderated our adventure ! We have to return for our group picture and another great adventure!

    review rating 5  We came here for my birthday with a group of 11. We did the flower shop escape room and had a wonderful time. The clues were great and challenging! Emilia was a wonderful host and it was a pleasure having her lead our group. We didn't escape, but had a great time. We were 1 clue away! I would definitely like to try another room at this location. It was creative and challen, but not impossible. Thanks for a great night!

  • review rating 5  The staff were very helpful and fun people. We did the beyond the flower shop room theme which was designed well even for our large group of 12 people, but I could see all group sizes enjoying this room. I appreciate the attention to detail to the escape room and the challenges placed throughout. The experience was worth it for our team-bonding event, and I highly recommend this for all types of people. Thanks for all the fun!

    review rating 5  Had a great work team retreat activity here. Loved the puzzles and escaping the "flower shop" (aka: 1920s speakeasy). I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a team building exercise or just wanting to have fun.
