  • This place is inside an old warehouse in Des Moines. Cool that they did something with a building that was probably sitting empty. Trying to schedule a kids birthday gathering can be difficult. We wou...  more »

  • Came here for a work team building trip. At first I was really resistant to going, and didn't have much interest in participating; however, once our group got into our assigned room I got really into it. I love puzzles so this was right up my ally. I thought it was just difficult enough that finishing could or could not be obtainable depending on how well you do. Our team did end up finishing, and we had a blast in the process.
  • It was very fun doing this with family and friends, but wish the Escape Chambers staff would have made this a little less random. We had completed all the tasks by the hints given and then could not get out of the room. At the end was told by staff, there was no hints for the code to get out of the room? The lock on the door could have 4, 5, 6, 7 etc. length number combinations? That is a lot of guessing? If you cannot make a mystery out of the rooms and a way out, with the clues, probably need to get more creative staff members. Only reason the review is low. Impossible to get out of "The Cellar" without randomly getting the number for the door at the end?
  • This place is great. If you have never done an Escape Chamber before this is a great place to start. Complex rooms and always high quality puzzles.
  • A group of friends got a Groupon for this place. We did a mission/challenge called The Recruit. We had to prevent a nuclear launch. That was the only thing they told us before starting the timer. It was tough finding clues and interpreting what they were for. However, it was a lot of fun and challenging. The Recruit did not have a lot of manual puzzles with locks and stuff, it was mostly mental puzzles.
  • This place is so much fun! From laser tag with realistic weapons and a fun two-level maze with obstacles and multiple challenges to virtual reality rides and the escape chamber! If you are looking for a fun and interactive experience with your friends then this is the place to go!
