Your Next Great Escape

Smiling group of friends

Escape rooms are the hottest entertainment craze for a reason. Escape rooms offer a heart-pounding adventure in 60 minutes or less. Not much else can do that. In an escape room, you’ll have the opportunity to put your brain to the test in a dynamic and exhilarating environment –  as you race with your friends against a ticking clock.

But is every escape room a good one? With so many options out there, making the right escape room decision can prove to be deceptively challenging, especially for those new to the arena of escape games. When you’re on the hunt for escape rooms in Denver, here’s what you need to keep in mind to make a perfect choice.

A Variety of Rooms and Themes

As the adage goes, variety is the “spice of life.” When you’re choosing an escape room, a selection complete with numerous available themes makes a difference. With a wide array of rooms from which to choose, you’ll quickly find a storyline that peaks your interests. From ancient Egyptian curses to Prohibition-era mysteries, a great escape room tells a story you’ll thoroughly enjoy.

Varying Levels of Difficulty

Are you an escape room novice or a seasoned pro? Many escape room destinations feature both a variety of themes and assorted escape difficulty rates, allowing newcomers and veterans alike an opportunity to flex their mental muscles. Whether you want a challenge few people can conquer or an easier game that will increase your odds of getting out alive, a good escape room provider should be able to accommodate all players.

Full Immersion

To fully appreciate the intricacy of an escape room, there must be a backstory for each room, details must be elaborate, the challenge must be present, and there must be a sense of urgency to complete the task. For safety reasons, don’t actually lock our participants into our rooms! You can leave the room anytime you want the way you came in, without asking for permission or assistance. However, leaving the room this way doesn’t mean you have completed the challenge, and the clock keeps ticking while you’re out.

Available for Many Occasions

An escape room visit doesn’t have to be a one-off day of fun with friends. Escape rooms can provide valuable team-building opportunities for corporate events, clubs, and more. If you’re seeking a new twist on corporate outings, an escape room can add a little excitement, helping your group to learn how to work together, solve problems, and coexist through periods of game-induced stress. Many established escape games have opportunities for group bookings, making it easy to organize something special.

The Reviews

  • 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  My husband and I just happened to walk by and we love escape rooms so we stopped in. They luckily had an opening in the War Games room with just a small wait, but my husband loved the little games/puzzles they had in the waiting room. We had a great time and escaped thanks to our host, Trace! He gave clues at the best times! He didn’t throw too many clues at us so we could figure most of it out on our own, but also didn’t let us stay in one spot for too long! Thanks for making our experience great!

  • 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  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  I can not say enough about this place! I had the best night of my life here. The staff worked tirelessly with my now fiance to help him plan the best proposal ever. They went above and beyond to create a night every girl dreams about. Selena, Chloe, and Taylor made sure every detail was perfect. I'll continue to recommend Escape Works to every person I know trying to make memories they wont forget. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. By far, the best escape room in town! You guys are amazing!!!!

  • review rating 5  We did the "Outbreak" room at EscapeWorks in Denver and we LOVED it! This was my first time in an escape room and I will definitely be back. Alisha was our liason and she was SUPER helpful. What a fun night with my kids!

    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  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  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  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  We completed a team event here where we split into teams and competed to finish first. Both rooms had amazing puzzles and it was really fun. I think our company team thoroughly enjoyed both rooms. We completed The Egyptian Tomb and the Casino but one of our members in the casino team can't seem to stop mumbling numbers and math equations.

  • 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  So many fun choices, a super safe place with a super professional and kind staff. The room I did was so much fun and planned down to the millimeter. My whole crew had a blast. I highly recommend it. No wait no fuss, treat yourself

  • 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 Outbreak and both were great. The staff we worked with were Selena and Josh (?) who were both awesome.

    review rating 5  I rented beyond the flower shop room for my wedding party. We had a blast! The puzzles were challenging but fun. There was plenty of room for everyone to work on different puzzles at the same time. We got out with 2 minutes to spare. Shout out to Trace, he did a great job at only giving us hints when we needed it. I don't like it when they're too generous with the hints, takes the challenge out of the experience. This was my third escape room in Denver and I've used a different company each time. I would definitely come back here to try a different room.

  • review rating 5  My fiancee and I were vacationing in Denver and tried out the Egyptian Tomb with another group of 4. We escaped with 5 minutes to spare! Very good room layout and good props. Puzzles were challenging and rewarding once solved. I was not a huge fan of how they did the hints... usually you have 3 hints or whatever and you ask for a hint when you get stuck, instead they give you hints when they think you need it. Otherwise, our game master, Trace, was very helpful and personable. Overall, very satisfied with our experience!

    review rating 5  Came here for my birthday and it was a blast! Super nice people. We did the Casino Heist and it was definitely challenging but they did give us clues along the way. Can’t wait to go back!
