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 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!

We did the Dark Room. It was alot of fun. Not scary and perfect for the beginners. We escaped with 8 minutes to spare.

We do a lot of escape rooms, so we took our rookie friends to 5280 in Seattle to hopefully get them into it too. Well the Experiment Room did not disappoint. Fantastic game. Awesome clues. fun use of "tools" in the room and very clever game flow. We enjoyed so much, so we decided to do another one there, which was the Dark Room! Very fun, both rooms were top notch. And, the team members there were so kind and made the experience that much more enjoyable!Would recommend Room 5280 to anyone who visits Seattle and enjoy well made escape rooms.

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.

We had so much fun in the dark room! This was our family’s 5th escape room (we like to do them while on vacations) and it was our favorite hands down. Great puzzles and just the right amount to keep the game moving. It’s always more fun when you beat the room, of course - but even if we hadn’t we would have still enjoyed it. My only suggestion would be to make sure everyone participating can have a flashlight, we had 2 family members that didn’t feel like they got to participate much without one. Fun room, though!

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).
