I went in as part of a party of two, so we did "The Experiment". It was a very fun little escape room. It's not as large and expansive as other escape...

Our last day in Seattle our 11yr old daughter wanted to try an escape room (none of us had ever done one). After researching the options, we choose Room 5280 after seeing their reviews. We had an amazing experience and our Gamemaster, Celia, was awesome! Although we used several clues, we finished The Experiment with about 1:15 left on the clock! It was a blast!

The Experiment was very enjoyable for the three of us. Lots of fun eureka moments and satisfying payoffs. We wanted to stay and do more!

Did this Experiment escape room with a group of four 13-year-olds for my son's birthday. What a blast! The puzzles were challenging in a really fun way...

I went with friends recently to 5280 and we had SUCH a blast! Our game master Celia was so enthusiastic and she really helped when it got kinda frustrating and kept it fun by being so entertaining! The room we did “the experiment” was really fun and just the right amount of challenging. Definitely recommend this place for groups of friends looking for a fun activity!

Room 5280 offered a very entertaining and decently challenging escape room experience for me and my friends. Our group of 6 did "The Experiment" room, and it seems like we did it in record time! Given 60 minutes for the escape, we finished in about 30 minutes. The puzzles were unique, and although I have done a few escape rooms before, there were several curve balls thrown that I had not seen prior to doing this room. Definitely excited to come back!Most importantly, though, is the excellent customer service that Room 5280 has. My group and I were originally scheduled to play a few weeks ago. Due to a highway being closed on that day, half of our group would have been unable to make it at that time. After I called to explain the situation, we were offered a credit to come back at another time. I thought this was completely fair and was glad that I didn't have to fight for this type of great customer service.

We played Darkness and Experiment today as a two. Both are really great rooms - challenging and very enjoyable. The owners are also very friendly, enthusiastic, and helpful. Thoroughly recommend any of their rooms based on what I saw - we're in the 30 odd game range, so we've seen a few! 🙂
