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?

Q:  Is it spooky?

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!

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

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.

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!

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).
