Overview

Escape Artist is a real life, fun, interactive escape room adventure where the goal is to find your way out of a room using your problem solving skills and teamwork. $20 Per person/$18 groups 8+. You have 45 minutes to accomplish it! The fabulous game master is available to offer clues and hints if you happen to be stymied at any point. Most people do get out within the allotted time. The uniqueness about Escape Artist DC is that, first and foremost, we are all about storytelling. When you are in the room we want you to be part of an experience. We make the challenge fit the context of the theme in a manner of a narrative. It all falls together nicely in the end and you get the satisfaction of applying all your mental faculties such as visual, spatial, analytical and be able to work as a team player.

We had a great time with our Fathers’ Day visit to Escape Artist DC. There were three of us: 2 fifty-somethings and a twenty-something. Everyone contributed surprisingly equally and we finished the 60-minute Gallery Heist challenge in around 52 minutes (with no hints!). I would...More

This business takes great pride in crafting exciting and challenging rooms. There were some fun and creative puzzles. It was fairly difficult, so I would not recommend for first time escapees. The place was small, but comfortable. We had a group of almost 30, and...More

This was a perfect way to spend a hot afternoon in DC. We had so much fun working together to solve the locked room puzzle! We ranged in age from 9 to 58 and all contributed...will absolutely come again!

This is such a fun activity and very clever. Each of the rooms is custom designed by the owner, and has very clever clues. He has even painted all the pictures in the rooms -- it's amazing!
