Went on a rainy day and had so much fun! We booked “The Experiment” and the game was complex and interesting - which is what we were hoping for. The puzzles were challenging but not impossible or frustrating. We aren't experts by any means (have played around 10 rooms), but we were able to complete the room with 3 minutes left. The staff was friendly and courteous as well. Can’t wait to come back and try the other rooms!

We had a blast doing the Heist! I’ve done a number of escape rooms and this one was definitely among the best. Lot’s of unique puzzles that I haven’t seen before and decor was on point. The room is non-linear and it was nice to have multiple things that could be done at once to keep all eight of us occupied.Overall, really loved the experience and will absolutely go back!

This was so fun! I took the kids I nanny, who are 11 and 15, and they both had a great time doing The Experiment. We walked in without booking, and both the workers were extremely helpful, and it was fun to work with the hints they gave us to solve the room. We didn't escape, but we had a fantastic time and will definitely go again!

This is the third ROOM 5280 location I'm visiting. They never disappoint! We did their Heist room and it was actually better than I expected. Really clever puzzles and enough to keep 8 of us busy the whole time! We escaped with 2 clues and it was absolute blast. I can see how it might be a bit much for just 4 people - definitely bring more people. Tons of fun!

Our family recently completed "the Dark Room" escape and had a wonderful time. The scenario was spooky but without any jump scares or anything that would truly frighten anyone. We honestly weren't sure how our family dynamics would play out in this situation. This turned out to be a great bonding experience - everyone was able to contribute and it turns out we can collaborate and get along when the going gets tough! The puzzles were challenging and one truly had us stumped but Claire kept us on track with a couple of carefully timed and cryptic whispers. Thank you Claire! You were encouraging and I think sometimes you had more faith in us than we did in ourselves. You were the perfect "whisper in the dark". Give Room 5280 a try.

There was four of us and it was all our first time doing an escape room, and it was a challenge! Aidan was a great host and was right on point with our journey. From the time we walked in, it all felt like it was put together. Don’t know how many other ones there are but glad this was our first one. If you want a great time with friends, and a mind challenge, come here and ask for Aidan to host. Highly recommend!!!

Went with some friends and my family last night. We did the heist room. It was very challenging and a lot of fun! Aiden was our guide for the room and gave us nudges and hints when we asked for them- and sometimes when we desperately needed them and didn’t even know it! Wonderful experience, I would recommend it to anyone looking for a fun challenging experience!

Great staff, and a good time. The escape room we did (the experiment) was a bit too linear for six people. We often had 3 or so people just wondering around to make sure nothing was missed. I think 2-4 would be the right amount. That said, it was a blast and everyone left happy.

My husband and I love going to different escape rooms and we’ve been to plenty and honestly, Room 5280 is in my top list of recommendations.We did ‘the experiment’, it was fun, interesting, and very different from others we’ve been to. I highly recommend. And we will for sure be coming back to do the Dark Room.We loved it. Thank you guys (:

On a whim, we decided to try an escape room experience while visiting Seattle. We went to Room 5280 and had a blast!

Great time, thank you very much ROOM 5280!!!!!!!

Great experience! We've sampled a good number of escape rooms in Seattle and this was one of our favorites! Good story, logical puzzles that followed the narrative, and nice overall production value. Carly was a wonderful host! From experience, a lot of escape hosts can kick you when you're down after coming up empty, but she was quite pleasant! We'll definitely come back soon for another go!

I loved the room my sister and I did! It kept us on our toes and we were one clue away from breaking free! I didn’t realize the Experiment Room was the hardest, but my sister and I did a really good job with just the two of us. When we were having trouble they gave us plenty of clues to keep us on the right track, and we got an extra ten minutes because the next group wasn’t expected for a while. I highly recommend doing these escape rooms with friends!

Very fun and unique idea for a day-out or birthday activity. Definitely not as easy as expected, but once you figure it out you'll slapping your forehead wondering how you didn't think of it. We didn't need any special skills or anything, just plain old logic. A little pricey though, but for the bonding and entertainment it was totally worth it. Will be stopping by again!

This was a really fun place, my friends and I had a blast here! They have several rooms with different themes that you have to solve to get out. The one we played was the science experiment room. Do not worry, I will give no spoilers!! The guy who was working there (I didn't catch his name so I can't give him a shout out, but he deserves one!) was really helpful and nice. He explained the rules, showed us the room, and made all of us feel safe and unstressed. We had an hour to figure out all the clues, finish the science experiment, and unlock the door to get out. But we did not feel trapped or rushed or worried at all!The puzzles were really fun, challenging, but not too difficult. And when we were stuck he would knock on the door and slide a helpful clue under the door to get us going again. There were a couple times where we had the answer but somehow it didn't work in a combination lock, and he got on the intercom and let us know we had the right answer, go back and try it again. In the end we were able to finish the room in time, and the hints he gave us, while very helpful to jump start the gears in our minds, did not give things away too much. It was a super fun reveal at the end too when we got to finish a real historic science experiment and hear about what it was and how affected our lives even today! I definitely want to go back and try more rooms out, it's worth it to go. If you have been thinking about trying out an escape room, try out ROOM 5280, it is worth experiencing!

As newbies to escape rooms, my friend and I chose this place because they are willing to provide clues, and they will even show you what you missed at the end (if you want). It's a good thing some help is provided because we were floundering. We were glad we chose Room 5280 since the puzzles were well-designed, and "The Experiment" is extremely fascinating! Great host. Great concepts. Great experience. Thanks!

Room 5280 is such an amazing company. The staff is always a delight. I have done all three of their rooms. The dark room I did with myself and one other person and it was a little easy for us, but still such a fun room. The heist was a bit challenging as we did it with 3 (4 is a minimum and we have a bit of experience) such a blast and was a good challenge for us. The flow of the room was amazing and always kept us on our toes.The experiment is a lot of fun and took some good thinking. We had a bigger group for this and did get out with some time left, but we all did have a fair amount of experience. Overall they have great puzzle design and room themes. They really take their customers into consideration, and I have always got nothing but amazing treatment from the staff. They love honest feed back about the puzzles and their rooms. I honestly just can't wait for the next room to open up to go back!

Had an amazing time! I contacted the owners beforehand because we were planning on bringing a Bachelorette party group in for the escape room at 9pm on a Saturday. We planned on this being the second-to-last event of the evening and wanted to surprise the Bride-to-be with a cake and champagne. The owners were super accommodating and allowed us to store the cake and champagne in their refrigerator and even allowed us to decorate one of their empty (non-escape) rooms. The escape room itself was very clever and the Bachelorette party had an a lot of fun trying to solve the puzzles. I definitely recommend this escape room to others and would come here again!

It was our first time doing escape room and we had a fantastic experience! Totally exceeded our expectations. The puzzles in the room were unique, creative, and challenging. And there were enough of them to keep everyone busy and active. Our guide was super friendly and accommodating. He was also very helpful in keeping us on the right track without giving away too much information during the game. We didn’t escape but we are still very proud of how well we did for first-timers. We will definitely be back to try another room!

We only played one room and initially we thought it will be hard to escape, but we received a clues from the host and it helped us to resolve the puzzle. Don’t hesitate to ask for help, very knowledgeable and helpful staff. Next time we will try to pass on our own with no clues. Thanks for taking us last minute and for the great experience we had!

Me, my husband, our four sons and two friends did "The Heist" for my son's 25th birthday. We were a group of eight, so I thought we would get in each other's way. NOT the case. It was so much fun. The room was challenging but not impossible and we were able to escape with a few minutes to spare. The puzzles definitely took thinking outside of the box, and it was not "easy" by any means. We felt like we were put to the test, but were able to succeed. We did collect one hint, and not sure we would have made it out without it. The staff were friendly and took our photo upon completion. We had a blast! We will definitely be back to do the one in the dark sometime in the future. Thank you for a great day!

My family and I had a great time! There were eight of us and everyone in the group (4 adults and 4 kids) contributed to solving the clues and puzzles. Unfortunately we didn't get all of the puzzles solved so we will have to come back. Looking forward to it!

Went here with a group for my 30th birthday and had an absolute blast! First escape room and it made me fall in love! The staff were warm, friendly and very accommodating. You could tell they genuinely cared about your experience! We will definitely be going back to try the other rooms! Highly recommend Room 5280!

Honestly, one of the best experiences of escape rooms I've been in (over 10 participated). The time we had was so exciting and challenging; me and my group decided to sign on for a second room the same day! The rooms we participated in were very well made with unique and exciting puzzles to solve I hadn't seen anywhere else. It will be the first location we complete all available puzzle rooms within a matter of two weeks! Highly recommend for any group, both experienced and inexperienced.

We did The Heist. It was a good room with clever puzzles, and everyone in our five person group felt engaged. There was one technical snag, but it was quickly remedied, and didn't feel like it took away from the experience. Thanks for a fun weekend experience!

This was a fabulous experience. We came to celebrate a birthday. We did The Experiment. We had to work together to find the clues. I highly recommend this new escape room experience.

This was my first time doing an escape room, so I have nothing to compare it to, but I went with a group of my colleagues and we had so much fun!! Hosts were extremely welcoming and excited to have us there and the room was challenging. Highly recommend to anyone in the area.

We had a great time at Room 5280! We were looking for things to do on Tuesday afternoon and I’m really glad we came across this escape room. This was the first time for a few of us and we were a party of 8 which was a good number to help figure things out. The Dark Room was challenging but super fun! Our guide did a great job explaining the process and helping us with clues when the team got stuck. We definitely will be back soon to try another room!

We visited ROOM 5280 for an office team building event and had a blast! We split into 3 groups and went to separate rooms. My team did the Heist. It was challenging but very fun. Everyone enjoyed it, I feel we worked together better than expected, and we made it out with time to spare! Thanks for delivering a great experience!
