Civic Center Eats 2019: Grab Lunch Before Your Escape Room

Civic Center Eats 2019: Grab Lunch Before Your Escape Room

When you go into an escape room, one of the biggest stipulations in whether or not you’ll be successful in your escape is how well you’re able to focus. A distracted mind slows you down and inhibits you from clearly and concisely processing the things going on around you. Because of this, it’s important to […]

How to Reconnect with Your Teenager this Fall

How to Reconnect with Your Teenager this Fall

Listen, the teen years are a weird stage for both the teenagers themselves and the parents who have to try to understand what’s going on. Because of this, parents and teens often don’t get along, and they retreat into their own corners of the home. This is especially the case once school rolls around and […]

How Puzzles and Brain Teasers Affect the Mind

How Puzzles and Brain Teasers Affect the Mind

There’s a lot of speculation regarding whether or not puzzles and “brain training” can actually sharpen your cognitive abilities. Many people believe it’s all just a hoax or a placebo effect capitalized on by marketing schemes from companies trying to sell an overpriced product, and that you can’t improve brain and mental skills you already […]

Solving Escape Room Activities in Large Groups vs. Small Groups

Ah, group size. The incessantly debated topic within every friend group since the beginning of time (don’t fact check us on that one). How does one decide the perfect number of people to invite, while balancing not offending someone with ensuring the least amount of stress for everyone involved? Then you throw an escape room […]

The Reviews

  • review rating 5  We did the Outbreak escape room and it was so much fun!! The room was very interactive and detailed and although the puzzles were tricky we got so close to finishing the room. Taylor was a great game master throughout the process especially since it was our first escape room. We will definitely do more! They also provide safe places for personal belongings.

    review rating 5  Had a great time doing the escape room here. It was challenging and fun. Matt ran our group and did a great job preparing us. Super fun time! I would definitely go back and try one of the other rooms! They have a few.

  • review rating 5  A fun, quirky experience, conveniently located downtown. Our group of 6 had a great time, even though we'd never done an escape room with 2 other people we didn't know. The staff who helped us (Taylor and Selena) were friendly and knowledgeable. We liked their clue giving system and thorough explanation of the rules. The decor in the Egyptian Tomb game was excellent and the puzzles were challenging, but not impossible. Thank you for a great time!

    review rating 5  Such a fun experience. I had never been in an escape room before and we went with a group that we didn’t know. It was so fun to get to work with strangers as a team to accomplish a common goal. Challenging room but so fun to do, and Taylor and Matt were so helpful at giving clues just when we needed them. Would definitely go back again!

  • review rating 5  The most well organized escape room I've been to! There are locked places for belongings as well as a unique hint system that is better than every other room I've been to. Outbreak is a very well thought out and designed room that eloquently railroads the players. Nearly got out too if it wasn't for that pesky red button!

    review rating 5  My group and I did the Outbreak puzzle and it was super fun, challenging, and exciting. To top it off, Amelia? Emilia? o my goodness forgot her name, but she was super funny and full of energy, totally added to the experience. Will for sure come back and try the other rooms.

  • review rating 5  “You’ll shoot your eye out!” We did A Christmas Story and it was SO fun- so many layers, different types of puzzles, challenging but never got totally stuck. Selena was a great guide, clearly super knowledgeable about the room, gave great hints and was very witty, completely made the experience for us.

    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  Did the Egyptian Tomb as a family, youngest being 12. Super fun, Juan was great with hints when we were spinning our tires. Our daughter is already asking when we can do another! FYI, one of our group was in a walking boot with somewhat limited mobility, it wasn’t an issue in this room. Will definitely be back.

    review rating 5  EscapeWorks Denver was a great team building event. We did Outbreak and it was very challenging for the entire group. Amelia and Savannah were great setting up the room and explaining our mission. Overall a fantastic experience and highly recommended.

    review rating 5  We were a group of very difficult customers: due to the Parade of Lights, insane traffic and the fact that our party carpooled in 3 different vehicles, our arrival and check-in was way beyond the norm. I emphasize this because, despite these difficult circumstances, EscapeWorks staff was super accommodating, helpful and friendly. They went out of their way to make sure we still had fun and got the most out of the experience. I love the fact that this business has seasonal rooms that give customers good reason to come back more than a few times, keeping the experience fresh and new, year round. I loved the room my group completed and I really want to come back and try other rooms that they have.

  • review rating 5  I’ve tried many escape rooms before and this one is by far my favorite! Not only was our room so well put together & exciting, but the staff was also amazing. Emilia was so great, she helped us get set up and made us feel so welcomed and excited to start our room. The room we did was meant for up to 12 people, so since it was just my boyfriend & I she helped us out a little bit. Emilia and the rest of the staff are wonderful. Highly recommend trying this place out!

    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.

  • review rating 5  My group almost missed the entrance at first which you have to buzz into, but the staff were so helpful! Selena and Matt greeted us, had us sign waivers, and gave a few tips quickly so that we had as much time as possible! They were great at giving us helpful and creative hints throughout. We made it out with almost 10 minutes to spare! Some of us had been to an escape room before and others hadn't, but the outbreak room was just right for us! Thanks so much for a great time!

    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  I brought my family here when they were in town for the holidays and it was a great experience. Staff was friendly, well-organized, and generally helpful. The room was fun and challenging, with way above-average decor that really sold the scenario. The puzzles were pretty unique from what I've seen and the hint system kept things from being frustrating for too long, without being intrusive. I've done both Egyptian Tomb and Antidote and both were great.

    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!
