We had a great experience, and our game master Alex was superb. We chose the pitch black one and finished with 6 minutes to spare with one hint. The room was technologically unimpressive but made up for it with some really fun puzzles. If your looking for a fun hour with friends this is a good choice.

Four of us went Friday and did the dark room, we escaped with a little over two and a half minutes to spare. We had so much fun we got back to where we were staying and instantly booked the heist for Sunday. The four of us also made it out of that one with just a little over a minute to spare. So even with it being the hardest room at this location it’s still totally doable with minimal people, just have to think outside the box a little to accomplish some tasks. All the puzzles are challenging and so much fun and both storylines were incredibly done! Kay and Chuck were both fantastic! We would definitely recommend! Thanks for having us!

I went with friends recently to 5280 and we had SUCH a blast! Our game master Celia was so enthusiastic and she really helped when it got kinda frustrating and kept it fun by being so entertaining! The room we did “the experiment” was really fun and just the right amount of challenging. Definitely recommend this place for groups of friends looking for a fun activity!

We played 9 escape rooms while visiting Seattle this week, and carefully ranked The Dark Room at ROOM 5280 as our 4th favorite game. We absolutely loved the horror element, although it really wasn’t too scary. The puzzles were both clever and engaging, especially when they required us working together as a team. Chuck was an incredible host and went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed. It was definitely one of our highlights while visiting Seattle!

The room was clean and well made. Our group was on the smaller side but we found the challenges to be satisfying and entertaining. There was some interesting novelty to the puzzles which made the room memorable. Kay, our host was very friendly and clear with the instructions and is why this was a 5 star experience.

Came to this escape room for the first time while on a visit in Seattle. Came with a large group and we all had an amazing experience. We had our host, Chuck, who was such a lovely individual. Chuck made sure to make all of us feel welcomed and encouraged and was always ready to help us with clues if we needed them. Chuck even stayed to give us extra time so we could escape the room. I would definitely recommend visiting this place, especially if chuck is on shift. 100/10 experience. I would fly to Seattle again just to come back to this escape room with chuck! Give chuck a raise!

Did the Dark room, and it was a great experience! Tricky puzzles, great story, fantastic staff. Definitely was a bit creepy in the room, but the ambiance made it feel realistic.Definitely recommend as a good experience during and after!

Great experience! Been to a few escape rooms before, this was a blast. Came with some friend and family. We almost beat it! They showed us how to complete it after though which made us facepalm for sure. Clever and fun puzzles that had all of us engaged and confused, hoping to beat the timer. If needed they will hand hints too. Great time and would come back!

We had so much fun here!! My friends and I did The Heist and it was the right amount of challenge for our group of four. The staff was friendly and amazing! Would definitely come back again to check out their other rooms!

We did both The Experiment and The Dark Room today (family of 3). Celia was an excellent game master, only gave us hints when we asked, and we did end up asking for 3 in each room. But we made it out! Celia was upbeat, great energy, and very friendly! Unfortunately, we completely spaced out tipping her before we left (facepalm).Great end to our short Seattle visit.Be sure to stop by here if you’re in town!

Was there for a team event of 6 people and had a blast! The staff was super friendly and explained everything clearly. The room (we did The Dark Room) was great and really had all 6 of us working together. The clues were the right difficulty! Strongly recommended for groups of friend or coworker especially the price is very cheap (about $30-35 per person).

Highly recommended! One of the best things we did while visiting Seattle! Definitely returning. I just wanted to say thank you to the gentleman that assisted us! So kind so helpful. He made the experience well worth it! Wish I could remember his name!

Room 5280 offered a very entertaining and decently challenging escape room experience for me and my friends. Our group of 6 did "The Experiment" room, and it seems like we did it in record time! Given 60 minutes for the escape, we finished in about 30 minutes. The puzzles were unique, and although I have done a few escape rooms before, there were several curve balls thrown that I had not seen prior to doing this room. Definitely excited to come back!Most importantly, though, is the excellent customer service that Room 5280 has. My group and I were originally scheduled to play a few weeks ago. Due to a highway being closed on that day, half of our group would have been unable to make it at that time. After I called to explain the situation, we were offered a credit to come back at another time. I thought this was completely fair and was glad that I didn't have to fight for this type of great customer service.

We had so much fun at 5280! We did the Heist and it was awesome. This is probably our 15th escape game, so we have a good amount of experience, and the puzzles were challenging and well done. Our host was great and super helpful. Highly recommend this place!

I’ve done 2 escape rooms with Room 5280 now and they’ve both been awesome! Easily my favorite escape room location! The staff are very friendly, and the two rooms we’ve done so far were super fun with interesting little tidbits to learn about after the game.We also adored our host/clue giver, Chuck. They were delightful. We stan Chuck.

We had a great time. Our gamemaster (Kay) was awesome. We were so close to completion. The puzzles were all thoughtful and well done. We completed the experiment. It was great that we could do it with just the two of us, but three would have been ideal.Thank you Room 5280

We played the room Experiment with my husband and it was one of the best escape rooms we did in the US! The puzzles were creative, straightforward yet quite difficult. Staff is also very kind and friendly.

Shoutout to chuck!! They were awesome and made in the experience a lot of fun and was super easy going. Definitely was able to ease the nerves since my partner and I aren’t super experienced in escape rooms. We did “the experiment” and it super immersive and definitely a lot of cool functions and puzzles that I was NOT expecting, gave my partner a good surprise. 10/10 would recommend and if ever swing by give good ole’ chuck a hi five! Can’t express how awesome they were 🙂

Did the heist room. It was hard but we almost beat the record as we did it in 23 minutes. Free parking right outside the room. The entrance is down an alley. Look for the sandwich board sign
