You found yourself in a pitch-black room. Dizzy and disoriented, with no memory of prior events, you stumble in the the dark until you discover a flash light… Can you figure out what is happening and, most importantly, how to get out?! …or will you become the next victim?

Search for clues, solve puzzles, discover hidden items… do whatever it takes to escape!

Great for beginners and intermediate players, as well as those who enjoy some adrenaline with their brain teasers.

Success rate: ~30%
Number of participants: 2 – 8

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!

My boyfriend and I went today, we did The Dark Room. It was both of ours first time doing an escape room and man was it fun! The room was relatively tricky, but the story was fun to discover and the puzzles were fun to solve. The young woman who guided us was very friendly, knowledgeable, and made the entire thing a pleasant experience. Really wanting to come back to experience the other two rooms!

Went to the Dark Room on a date the other night. Absolutely wonderful experience, very complex and challenging. We managed to finish it after the owner gave us an extra 10 minutes. Owner was super friendly and very fun. Highly recommend going, well worth the price!

Such a fun way to spend Mother’s Day with my kiddos and parents! I will definitely go back with friends and teammates. The Dark Room kept us quite intrigued. Thanks for making our first escape room a memorable experience.

Not sure how I didn't review this - but right before COVID we did the Experiment and The Dark Room - AND HAD A BLAST. No spoilers here but I will tell you...

This was a great experience for my brother and I! We are already planning to come back. We had lots of fun in the dark room and it exceeded my expectations. My only issue was that we did run out of time, so I’d recommend to go in that room with more than 2 people because it was tricky! 🙂 if you arrive early there are puzzles in the waiting area.

I went with four of my friends and did the dark room. It’s as our first escape room, and it was so much fun. Thanks to Chuck for the amazing experience. He was very kind and helpful and even explained and walked us through what we missed in the escape room! We’ll definitely be returning!

Well thought out and enjoyable rooms. I would recommend to anyone. Also there is parking which can be an issue sometimes with escape rooms in Seattle. My group had a great time with the Dark Room and Experiment.

YES 5280 IS OPEN DURING COVID!!! We had so much fun doing the Dark Room! Even though it was just the two of us, we had fun and were very close to figuring it out. The owner was kind enough to let us finish the last step (we were one step away from finishing when the timer went off) and we finally escaped! I've never done a room in the dark before. They let UV rays sanitize the escape rooms after each party comes through, which is awesome. If you are coming into Seattle for any reason, or even just live in the city, this is a place you MUST check out. Thanks for such a great experience!
