Anyone ever been to one? The Wife and I went with some friends Saturday night and had a blast. I would highly recommend this for a date night.

We did the one in New Braunfels with the kids and we beat the clock! It was very close in time and we had a blast.

Been once in New Braunfels and it was fun. They are building one on FM1488 just North of The Woodlands, close to Saddle River Range.

I've done one in New Orleans with coworkers and they are pretty cool. I had no idea what they were but apparently there are a bunch out there.

I escaped Houston 2 years ago and won’t ever go back!



My nephew is a partner in these businesses. I’ve heard really good things but I’ve never been in one.

My Wife and I went with a group of Friends. We went through the NASA Space Station event. It was tough. We missed the finish line by one or two clues. I would go again.

I hear they got a “extreme” version where everyone eats Taco Bell before they lock you in.

It's fun. I thought it was stupid, until I got dragged into one. Had fun and beat GW clock.

Pretty much they put you in a room and you try to solve a "case" or puzzle with clues left around the room.

The point is to try and solve the puzzle not kill off everyone. That being said, I can win that challenge with some Pickled Eggs and Beer
