I took my 2 granddaughters(12 & 15) to do the Human Experiment escape room & we had a blast!! The assistant was very friendly & helpful. She explained everything to us prior to entering & was helpful in giving hints as we worked to try and escape, which we were unable to do!! This was our 3rd escape room having done one in Raleigh & one in Charlotte before. We had escaped from one of them. I think it would have been helpful if we had more people in our group to help. I really liked that this room was personalized with our names as we hunted for clues and various types of locks were used! I am a nurse and I really enjoyed this room but was unable to solve some of the clues!!!! It had a couple of scare factors which really made it exciting for the girls--they loved it!! The cost is very reasonable also which was $18 per person on a weekday--this is the most economical of any I have seen in other places!! Definitely need to try Escape Risk and the Human Experiment--it is supposed to be their easier room, but it is still very challenging!! Don't miss it!!!

Loved the Captain's Quarters room here, even if we didn't escape in time...
Our gamemaster was awesome at explaining everything to us and making us feel better about not escaping :) The puzzles were really imaginative and fun, which made the hour fly by!
I especially love the value you get here-- having looked into lots of escape rooms in different cities, getting to have a whole room for your party at $20 per person is unheard of. Awesome experience!

We played the captain's quarters and had a great time. The room was put together well and the puzzles were great! Also the prices was great! The owner is very nice and went over everything before we got started!

The owner was attentive e to us as first timers to an Escape room experience. We choose this one because it was recommended by friends. We tried the Cruise room which later we learned was one of the more difficult rooms. We had a blast trying to decode the clues and communicating with each other. We had 4 in our family which was a perfect number. We definitely will try Escape Risk again!

We were first timer to any escape room event, and picked one with a 9 out of 10 hardness rating for our first time. There were 5 of us, and we did not escape in an hour, but were only about 5 or so minutes away from escaping. They said that was really good for one who had never done this type of thing before. It was so much fun and the hour flew by. Will definitely do this again.
