  • Our party of 3 people elected to do the game room. It was elaborate and required us to think outside the box. Solving one clue led to the mystery of another. It required teamwork and ingenuity to proc...  more »

  • My friend and I are avid escape room players. I travel for work and do them in my downtime while off work. We did the Oval Office with just us two and it was an amazing time. Got out with 9 minutes to spare. Also did the Houdini themed room and got out with 2 minutes to spare. Both rooms had plenty of stuff to do in parallel instead of the riddles and puzzles needing to be done linearly. But throughout the 50-60 rooms I have done this was the best one. Many rooms have a storyline and then the riddles and puzzles are random and don't follow the story line. They did a great job to incorporate a presidential and American theme to most all the puzzles as well as the magic and Houdini theme. The room setups were great. But what takes a room from being good to great is the technology used in the room. The Oval Office room had plenty of it and different types. Some places it's just magnetic locks but here it was a mix of so much. I really appreciated the time and thought it took to make this room. You guys definitely had to spend immense amount of time thinking of how to incorporate history and the theme into this room. Definitely the golden standard for a GREAT room. I don't usually post reviews because most experiences are the same (satisfaction and enjoyment wise) but you guys for sure earned it. Thanks for the good experience with the Oval Office and Houdini room. Great to have rooms that can be done with lots of people or in our case 2 people. Good thing we had a decent amount of experience. Both were quite challenging.
  • We had an absolutely wonderful experience here! The employee who got us set up was wonderful and took excellent care of us while we were in the room. The room set-up was amazing - difficult enough to make us think but not impossible - and the decor was beautiful. I highly recommend this place to anyone who enjoys escape rooms!
  • Came to Houdini's Room Escape with a group of friends for a birthday party and managed to survive the Oval Office with 9 seconds left on the clock. Had so much fun, I came back the next day with my husband and did the Escape Room with 6 strangers. Had a blast both times. You become fast friends and teammates with anyone in your group, whether you knew them before or not. I felt like this place had the opportunity to be really cheesey, however the props, decor, puzzles are all top notch. Very impressed by the quality and care taken in to maintaining their spaces. Sarah was our Game Master for the Oval Office and she was so fun! Alexa was our Game Master for Escape Room and she was very sweet, too.
  • Went two different times with different work groups and had a great experience both times. The rooms are challenging and really well designed. Great team building exercise.
  • Great escape room. There was only 2 in our group and we had a great time finding the clues and escaping the Tower. The staff was friendly, helpful, and encouraging. The building was clean. Props were unique. The room was challenging but not too difficult.

Where to stay in Cincinnati
