We just recently did the nuclear meltdown theme escape room. We were told that this was the most difficult room with only a 30% success rate. Its a cool idea for a room. The room itself could use some TLC. We were told not to move any of the furniture or posters so that left us to figure out how to open coded locks. Thats great and all, but we had no direction of what to look for. Usually in escape rooms you get clues or if they see you struggling theyll help you out. Myself and several others in our group asked for clues multiple times and were given none at all. We just assumed that for this more difficult room we must not get clues. We managed to make almost all the way to the end abd ran out of time. The reason why Im giving this one star is because when the guy came back in to tell us how from where we were what else we would have had to do and he was like why didnt you guys ask for clues? So we were indeed supposed to get clues! The teenager working the front was not paying attention to our group. It ruined my experience completely.
Did Nuclear Meltdown. The game was very challenging, but I cant tell if it was challenging from the puzzles or from the staff since they did not help or give clues (they later admitted that we supposed to have clues... guess the teenager up front wasnt paying attention) on what they described as their most difficult challenge. I would not suggest going to this escape the room due to the unprofessional staff and their lack of attention to the game rooms. The rooms also were poorly put together, with blue painters tape holding up posters in the room that looked tacky and thrown together. Just a forewarning, there was no intro to the challenge, that doesnt play into my 1 star review as some escape rooms dont introduce you, just keep in mind they will drop you into the challenge with little guidance and a very small backstory.
The trap room want very well put together. Its supposed to be like a scene from saw but really just looks like random things in a room with body parts and missing person posters. The missing posters are actual people missing for some as well. Might want to rethink using someones missing person poster. The clues dont build in a way you would normally see an escape the room build. You find some clues you dont use until much later and hint at nothing for the next step. Overall this isnt a very good escape the room. Need to really make the theme look realistic. Also need to fix the electrical outlets so that you dont just have a ton of blue tape covering and say dont touch those for your own safety.
Dont expect anything grand, and maybe it was kinda cheesy, but overall I enjoyed my first escape room. I came here with a bunch of 12 year old girls as part of a birthday party activity. The room we did was called The Trap. You are allowed clues, and I believe we asked and recieved about 4 clues. We actually got to the final task and were so close to figuring it out when our time was up. So we did NOT escape. Doing this is a great group activity, and I recommend everyone try these escape rooms at least once. Make sure you do them with people who do not annoy you, because this will exacerbate that feeling.
Staff was kind and helpful, but they didnt dress very professional. The game was challenging which was great, but I felt like there was little thought or effort put into creating an experience. We did the nuclear fallout room and I felt like I was playing a strategy game inside the housewares and furniture department at goodwill. Were we in a bomb shelter? A control center? An army base? I couldnt figure it out. Just a bunch of junk laying around. My kind and constructive feedback: revamp and theme your rooms. Add a cool intro video to get people into it, maybe some music too ☺️
It was so much fun, and not as cheesy/corny as I though it would be. The room "The Trap" that we did was pretty challenging, but we made it out just in time. The location was easy to find, but the staff was a little ackward to interact with. Though I know they are awesome at puzzles and keeping the rooms in order, talking to them at check in seemed a little ackward. Besides that, everything was awesome, a great value and I hope to go back and try another room sometime soon.
Did the nuclear meltdown room. Not a good room for first timers. We needed LOTS of help, as several clues seemed completely random and we had no way of knowing to use them or how. Extremely low budget rooms prevent immersion and there was only a semi-helpful staff. It was a decent puzzle to be sure, but I would only recommend it for experienced players with low expectations.
We had a lot of fun. We escaped the room the Nuclear Meltdown room with 3:20 left. Not too bad for our first escape the room experience. The owner that helped us definitely helped make it a great experience for us and even let us take a look at The Trap room before we left. We will definitely be back to try the other rooms out.
this place was a lot of fun! Ive done the nuclear meltdown and davincis secret both which were fun. the davinci felt a little better built decor wise but the nuclear gameplay was by far my favorite and Ive done 8 other escape rooms throughout the valley. good job baffled . look forward to trying "the trap"
We did the nuclear one. Not a great experience at all. Tons of things were not working and the manager was in and out of our room several times. Most of the clues made no sense. The decor was lame. Definitely not as fun as several escape rooms we have done in the past. Will not be coming back.
Loved it! We escaped! We did it as a family. Easy enough for our 13 year old sister to participate, but not so easy that we adults didnt take pride in our puzzle solving. Our guide Tucker was great. Really nice and informative, and the right amount of helpful. We did the Da Vinci room.
This place is actually a lot of fun. We did the horror themed room and while it is very difficult if you work together youll get through it. We had an hour to escape the room and we literally escaped with three seconds left on the clock. Ill be going back for the other rooms.
My sons and I came here for our first escape room experience. Overall a fun time and the DaVinci room was well thought out with a good mix of clues and rabbit holes. Plenty to occupy 3 of us. Hope this biz can keep growing, would like to come back and try The Trap.
This was our 3rd time doing one of these. The customer service was BY FAR much better than than the other 2 places! The experience was also better overall. They have all been fun & challenging but this was our favorite for sure! Highly recommend.
Was an amazing experience!!! Staff waa super friendly and the davinci room was full of surprises. This was my 5th escape room ive done in the valley and by far my favorite! Thank you to baffled for an awesome night out with friends and family.
