What Other Teams Have To Say

You’ll learn a lot about your team as they work their way through an escape room solving puzzles and uncovering hidden clues. But why The Escape Game Houston over other escape game companies? We’ll let our reviews do that talking on this one:

“This is the original escape room company and you can tell the difference. This company has the best rooms, the design, the puzzles are the best out there. This is why the escape rooms have gotten so popular because the original was this good. My favorite place to do an escape game.”

“The Escape game was great! Having to solve puzzle after puzzle that secretly reveals a new clue and puzzle. It really keeps you on your toes as you’re fighting against the clock.

This was a great team building exercise that I believe anyone will enjoy. I would really like to try it again.”

“I went to Escape Room Houston with my team from work to celebrate our two year anniversary as a company. The location in City Centre worked out perfectly because we were able to grab lunch and then just walk over.

We participated in the Prison Break game. It was SO MUCH FUN! I’ve been to escape rooms before and was literally just locked in a single room. This game took us on a journey. Once we solved problems in one room, doors were opened leading us to others.

Mandy was our guide and she was super helpful! I really like that they don’t box you in to getting only 3 clues, and chime in when they see that you are SO close to something, but still struggling a bit.

We didn’t ‘escape,’ but they did let us out. We all still had the BEST time!!”

“Very exciting Wednesday night out! Went for a co worker team building activity and got so much more out of it! Challenging and exciting.

Would highly recommend this over the other escape games/rooms! Staff was hospitable and fun to chat with! Everybody needs to get out and play here!”
