We love ROOM5280! It’s our third time solving their rooms and they have not disappointed us. The staff, especially our guide Chuck, was helpful and encouraging, making the experience extra enjoyable! We were able to escape The Heist with just a little more than two minutes left, and we really felt like we were on our A-game, so it was a challenging but very rewarding experience! Would definitely recommend!

My friends visiting from Miami and I had such an amazing time here tackling The Heist! We knew going into it that it was one of the trickier rooms, but the aesthetic called to us. We had an awesome time and the puzzle room host Chuck was great and really made the experience special.Ps. We love u Chuck and be sure to do a little dance for us

Me and my group of 4 did “TheHeist” and it was AWESOME. Super fun and challenging! The space is awesome, the staff was great, it felt super clean and safe and they really think of everything! We especially enjoyed the staff member who helped us- Chuck! They were super cool and knowledgeable! We will be back!

We did The Heist as a group of four - two of us had never done an escape room, one had only once, and one more experienced. We escaped!We loved our game master Chuck who told us that the success rate for escaping that room is like 16%, typically with 7-8 experienced players and an average of 8 hints. We did not have that many players or experience, and used only 2.5 hints! We had about 20 seconds left to spare I think!I loved that Chuck took the time to show off the puzzles they created and I will definitely be back for the dark room!

Our group did the Heist for our homecoming and James made our night. He watched us do grand jetés in front of the cameras to ask for hints and took pictures of us at the end. The Heist was a fun escape room for our large group, was challenging but flowed well. We were able to escape within the time limit with only a couple hints. Had an awesome night with my friends, would recommend to anyone who wants to have a night of fun!

BEST ESCAPE ROOM EVER!! we did the heist with 10 people and it kept everyone entertained. it was intense but gave time for fun and messing around and many laughs. you can control how much external help you get, so it’s very adaptable to the preferences of your group. james was the most mvp staff member ever, i honestly feel like we made a lifelong friend. i will literally never forget how hilarious and fun he was, or the spectacular evening my friends and i enjoyed at room 5280!!

Had a great time here this weekend while we were killing time for a flight out of Seattle. We did the heist room. It was challenging and we definitely needed all the clues we got. My kids (15 and 13) asked if we could go back for their other rooms.

I loved this escape room. Did the heist with a group of 5 and we were working the whole time!! The room was cleverly designed and the game masters Kay and Chuck did an amazing job making us feel welcome, explaining things quickly, and providing hints when asked. I especially loved that at the end they gave us feedback on our performance and provided insight into our favorite mechanisms. I will definitely be back to do all the other rooms. This place is in my top 3 escape rooms of all time!

Room 5280 was a really fun team bonding event for my team. We decided to do The Heist which is their hardest room. After hearing that this room had a 16%...

We were made to feeeel like accomplished sleuths! We recently decided as a family, to celebrate the dads in the family to a fun, new activity for Father's Day. We were not disappointed! We participated in the "Heist" where the simple room was thoughtfully designed to intensively give our group a good mental jiu jitsu workout. The meticulous details of this live puzzle were impressive. Although we were not able to finish, we were consoled to learn that this is the hardest of their current puzzles, with only 30% of participants able to solve it. I would rather it be fabulously challenging than to be so easy that we might have a lot of time left. The hosts were amazingly accommodating and clearly pretty genius themselves. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and look forward to a return visit for another one of their brainy offerings!
