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 "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  We were in Colorado for a long weekend and had a late flight home. We decided to try an escape room. We chose EscapeWorks and it was great. Savannah and Matt were awesome hosts. We were excited to be among the 18% that solved The Casino Heist. I encourage you to give it a try!

  • 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  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  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  Went as a group for a team building exercise and did the Outbreak room. The puzzles were challenging and complex but we did manage to escape! It was a great time and a really immersive experience. Thanks to Sierra for sending us hints that were helpful enough to get us unstuck but didn't just give away the game.Overall a really great experience!

    review rating 5  My 13 yr. old son wanted to do this and I’m so glad we did. This was a fun activity that the whole family participated in with no electronics involved. Our teamwork and efforts (plus a lot of help from Devon and Taylor) helped to solve the puzzle and get us out of the room. Devon and Taylor were wonderful hosts and explained everything perfectly. We’ll definitely return for another family adventure.

    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  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  Lana and Sierra were great! We had a couple of people late and they made sure we all still had a great experience. The Egyptian room was great with thoughtful clues and was just the right difficulty for our group!

  • 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  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  This was our second time down and both times were so much fun! This time we did the Christmas Story room and it was a blast! Great elements from the movie, challenging puzzles but also fun for the kids. Amelia was a fabulous guide! We are looking forward to trying other rooms in the future for sure!

    review rating 5  One clue away from solving it all but still super fun. What a great puzzle and team building opportunity! Huge shout out to Juan- his help, humor, and support at EscapeWorks really made the night great. Thanks so much again!

  • review rating 5  This place is A TON OF FUN! It was my first time doing a live escape room and I will definitely be doing many more because of the experience that I had here. Devon and Trace were our hosts and I absolutely love the presentation and humor that they brought to the experience. It was myself and one other person in one of the easier rooms and we just barely made it out in time. It was a great challenge and a blast of a time. I would HIGHLY recommend this place if you are looking for a fun challenge with friends or some bonding time with a significant other. 10 out of 10 for sure! Thanks gang! Keep up the good work!

    review rating 5  This was incredible. We did the Casino room and we are now going to go back and do more. What a great thing to do on any night of the week. It was challenging, fun, and Chloe was the best. Everyone needs to try this. It’s also something that is good for your brains so it’s like working out but for the mind. We will be booking more of these and will do them all after this experience.

  • 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!
