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: ~40%
Number of participants: 3 – 8

Q:  Is it scary?
A:  Not really. It’s not designed to be scary.

Q:  Is it spooky?
A:  Yes, it “spooky filled with mystery”.

Q:   Will we be paired with strangers?
A:   No, all games are private (no strangers).

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!
