The Dark Room was really fun! Most of our group had done several escape rooms, and this one was still a good challenge, and the story behind the room was very interesting as well.Our game master Chuck was SO lovely and made the experience that much better. I'd love to go back and try their other rooms!

Did two of the escape rooms and had so much fun, the people who run the place are also really cool and make the rooms more exciting. Shoutout to Chuck for explaining everything and even giving us extra time to solve the rest of the room’s puzzles!

Had a great time here this weekend while we were killing time for a flight out of Seattle. We did the heist room. It was challenging and we definitely needed all the clues we got. My kids (15 and 13) asked if we could go back for their other rooms.

Our last day in Seattle our 11yr old daughter wanted to try an escape room (none of us had ever done one). After researching the options, we choose Room 5280 after seeing their reviews. We had an amazing experience and our Gamemaster, Celia, was awesome! Although we used several clues, we finished The Experiment with about 1:15 left on the clock! It was a blast!

I loved this escape room. Did the heist with a group of 5 and we were working the whole time!! The room was cleverly designed and the game masters Kay and Chuck did an amazing job making us feel welcome, explaining things quickly, and providing hints when asked. I especially loved that at the end they gave us feedback on our performance and provided insight into our favorite mechanisms. I will definitely be back to do all the other rooms. This place is in my top 3 escape rooms of all time!

The Experiment was very enjoyable for the three of us. Lots of fun eureka moments and satisfying payoffs. We wanted to stay and do more!

As with all Escape Rooms, the first challenge is to find the entrance to the location. Once in Celia was a great Gamemaster and kept the game going and challenging. Really enjoyed the game.

Did the 'Heist' room with my group of 8. Really cool room and we escaped with about 5 minutes to spare and using 2 hints. Had a lot of fun 🙂

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.
