Escape rooms

Fun for Everyone

ROOM 5280 is for people of all ages and skill sets. You do not need to have any special knowledge to solve the puzzles and have a good time. Be creative!

We did "The Experiment" and escaped with ~2.5 minutes to spare. It was a super creative room with a lot of very neat and unique puzzles that I didn't see coming and was genuinely impressed by. Would highly recommend the room.The staff was very nice and pleasant, and we had a great time. They were a little pedantic about making us wear masks when taking the post-room picture which was a bit annoying, but at they were at least polite about it.

We had so much fun doing the 'Experiment' room! The clues did not require any prior knowledge and could be solved only based on logic and critical thinking. We will be coming back for sure!

A wonderful escape room! My family and I had a fantastic time because of Chuck, our game master. Chuck went above and beyond and even let us stay later to work on the puzzle box in the lobby. My parents even asked about going back, which is a win in my book.

We had so much fun in the dark room! This was our family’s 5th escape room (we like to do them while on vacations) and it was our favorite hands down. Great puzzles and just the right amount to keep the game moving. It’s always more fun when you beat the room, of course - but even if we hadn’t we would have still enjoyed it. My only suggestion would be to make sure everyone participating can have a flashlight, we had 2 family members that didn’t feel like they got to participate much without one. Fun room, though!

We do a lot of escape rooms, so we took our rookie friends to 5280 in Seattle to hopefully get them into it too. Well the Experiment Room did not disappoint. Fantastic game. Awesome clues. fun use of "tools" in the room and very clever game flow. We enjoyed so much, so we decided to do another one there, which was the Dark Room! Very fun, both rooms were top notch. And, the team members there were so kind and made the experience that much more enjoyable!Would recommend Room 5280 to anyone who visits Seattle and enjoy well made escape rooms.

We (two experienced escape roomers) did the Experiment and liked it so much we came back for the Dark Room later in the afternoon! The puzzles were creative and challenging, but doable for two people. Chuck was a friendly, charming, and unassuming game master. They slid hints (sparingly/on request) under the door face-down, so we had control of how much help we got. They also explained different parts of the room afterwards - you can tell they are really enthusiastic about escape rooms and puzzles! Plus the waiting room has a big puzzle chest to solve if you’re waiting. 10/10 would do again.

Absolutely wonderful! Diego did an amazing job setting the mood for us and gave us extra information about the back story of the room afterwards. Super fun! Great activity for friends! We'll definitely have to try out the other rooms!

Absolutely loved our experience at ROOM 5280! Chuck was our host/game master and was an absolute delight! Our group of 6 successfully completed “The Heist” with a couple minutes to spare. I would recommend having 5-7 people working on this room so it’s complicated but not too crowded. We needed a clue or two along the way but had an absolute blast figuring out all the puzzles. Our experience was so good we would love to come back and try some of their other rooms.

Great customer service and tons of fun! Very challenging. The Heist room was awesome! 6 people would be the perfect amount. We only had 4 and wished we had a couple more to help!

Chuck was a phenomenal host to my party. We are a group of streamers for the twitch community and was able to gather the group for PAX for this event. Thank you for providing a memorable experience for all of us. We did the heist! Definitely recommend

Great time with my daughter doing some bonding and having fun trying to figure out the room. Hard to believe they crammed so many puzzles into one hour! The staff was super nice, location was excellent and easy to find (also free parking), and overall I can't wait to come back.

Our group had an awesome time doing The Heist room. We were incredibly close to finishing the room at the end and our room monitor gave us an extra 5 minutes which allowed us to escape which really added to our experience.

This escape room was a lot of fun - I was in a group of 9 coworkers, and we did The Heist. It was challenging, the hour went by really quick. Even though we had 9 people, everyone was able to participate and help get us closer. The game master paid attention to our progress and gave us clues when we needed to get back on track (we also asked for clues, but it was nice to have someone give us a chance to get all the way through). We ultimately did not make it out, but it's great motivation to come back and try to escape another room!

Went for my daughter's 10th birthday. The stuff Lisa is super nice and professional. I choose Dark Room which turned out it not best fit for 10 years old. Girls feel scary and requested back next time for another room with lights on.

Lisa was super nice and helpful! They follow COVID precautions here and have a nice waiting room and clean bathrooms as well as secure lockers for your items. The escape room was fun and creative, with a very nice atmosphere. I would definitely come again, we even considered doing a second room but it was late already. If you’re looking for a fun escape room, look no further.

One of the best escape rooms I have been to around Seattle area. We tried the “Dark Room”, it’s not too hard and not too easy, just the perfect challenge level. For this room, I think 4 people is the best. Will definitely go back and try other rooms. Also think it’s a great choice for team event. The stuff is very friendly!
