They are incredibly disorganized and unprofessional. I would not recommend them to anyone. They canceled my reservation one hour before we were set to come (ruining a birthday party I was hosting) and then set me on a three week battle to collect my refund.

No imagination went into this escape room. Some of the clues were missing or not working! My son has done 5 other escape rooms and said this was the only bad one he had done.

The room had very little design. The budget for making the whole room and puzzles is paid for by one or two people's admission. Online it says your reservation is 90 minute duration but when you arrive they say it is 60 minutes and if you run out of time they do not tell you how to solve it. Instead you have to pay for extra time as if you had not paid enough as is. Further, even with the groupon we had to pay extra when booking the room.

The room was very bare and designed to be solved by a very small percentage of customers. Knowing that you are going to fail makes it a frustrating experience instead of fun. Far inferior to other Escape rooms I have gone through in the past.

Glad we have an escape room in Gainesville, but I wish it had been designed so people could actually make it out in the allotted time. There were 6 of us, and we only got about halfway through, even with unlimited clues. When we found out that no one had made it through the room in under an hour, we felt a little better, but are hesitant to go back since you are basically guaranteed failure. Still a fun time, though, and hope more rooms will come to Gainesville.

From Our Editors

You're locked in a room with seven other people and the clock is ticking. Escape Key experiences start the way you might expect them to—only the locks are likely unlike anything you've ever seen before. That's because Escape Key layers its challenge with locking mechanisms that aren't available on the public market, meaning it will take more than a flair for guessing combinations or melting steel with your heat vision to get out. Inspired by the radically popular Tim Tang Test, a 250-level online puzzle game that's attracted more than 4 million users to date, Escape Key incorporates technology in ways that other escape adventures don't. But at the end of one hour, the goal is still the same: to get out.
