This escape room was a blast! It was an intense experience that fully immersed me in the game, and I've played many escape rooms before. This particular location has become my favorite and our game master was incredibly helpful. We definitely wouldn't have made it out without him. I can't wait to go back and play again!

We had a great time as a family of five at The Escape Game in NYC. We were looking for availability on our last day in the city and they were really accommodating. We initially planned to book the playground, but the kids were so excited by the prison break room that we couldn't resist. The room was well-themed and had three parts, which was a pleasant surprise. The whole family enjoyed it and we'd definitely return to any of their escape rooms in the future. Highly recommended for families and people of all ages.

The Heist room at The Escape Game (NYC) was amazing and one of the best escape rooms I've ever played! We were partnered with four other people who were just as into the game as we were, which made it even more fun. The puzzles were clever and technical, and we had so many "OMG" moments when we solved them. We escaped with 10 minutes to spare! I highly recommend this escape room and any other escape rooms by this company. You won't regret it!
