About
The Escape Hunt Experience is Houston's Premier Escape Room. We offer an exceptional escape room experience from the moment you walk into our Victorian furnished reception room, reminiscent of Sherlock Holmes' famous 221B Baker Street study. Conveniently located near many food and drink options in Midtown. We provide free complimentary parking. Our escape rooms transport you to another time and place where you work together as a team to escape the room in less than 60 minutes. Our new Apollo 13 Escape Room is receiving excellent guest reviews and media coverage. It is being described as the most realistic escape room in the United States. For those not yet familiar with the concept, an escape room is a physical adventure game in which players are locked in a room and have to use elements of the room to discover clues and solve codes and puzzles in order to escape the room within 60 minutes. Complimentary free parking in our covered facility.

I have done about 30 escape rooms in different cities throughout the country. I’d say this was a middle of the road one, decent puzzles, good, but not blow you away production value, if I did a room and had no issues I’d probably rate 3.5-4/5. However we had two major issues during our last time there.

First off we got to a puzzle that we were very close to solving, but couldn’t quite finish it off. After trying this one puzzle for almost 10 minutes we ask for a clue. The woman comes over the speaker and gives us an extremely basic clue that we clearly already knew as we were very close to solving it and it didn’t help. So we asked for another, and another, and another. So after 4 clues that didn’t give us any info we didn’t already know I ring the gong a 5th time and say can you please just explain the puzzle because we aren’t getting it. They give us the explanation and we move on.

Not two minutes later we start working on a puzzle and struggle with it for maybe 20 seconds and the same manager, Dillon, comes on the speaker and just tells us the answer. No clue request, nothing. I say out loud we would really like no more hints unless we ask and he snarkily tells me that we asked for the answer on the previous one so he thought we’d just want all the answers. I reply no only if we ask for them. Just for context there were probably 15 or so puzzles and we were on puzzle 12 with 30 minutes left when we got stuck so it’s not like we were behind.

Then as we were attempting to finish, we solve the next to last riddle and open a drawer to find nothing inside. We ask for a clue and they seem perplexed. After about 5 minutes they come into the room to tell us they forgot to reset something. It happens, that alone wouldn’t be a big deal. However after Dillon was so arrogant and snarky with me 10 minutes earlier it really rubbed me the wrong way.

Overall the room was good, I think they should improve their clue giving process based on how the puzzle is actually going, and Dillon, come on man, you knew what you were doing and it kind of ruined the experience for me.

Our game guide played the second half of the game for us, despite us not asking. He came in and when asked why he did that yelled back that he only helped us on one thing (a lie), holding up a single finger up in our face even. When challenged he immediately stormed out to get his manager.

The manager walked in and Kendrick, the awful employee, was just arguing about us to him like we weren't there. We have to actually raise our voices now to get the child to leave the room so we can actually talk to the manager ourselves. Then the manager is basically just as argumentative. He says we're being hostile, claimed to have watched our game but was wrong about the details, and basically offers no form of apology for a ruined experience. It settles down after a minute or so but clearly the manager, Dillon, had no intentions of valuing the customer experience.

I have games there that I still have not played and will not be back

We booked this room with 6 people not knowing that this was the MINIMUM for this room, but we had a great time and were able to escape. This was our third time to Escape Hunt Houston and have had a great experience each time. The staff is very nice and helpful and the rooms are very well designed. The Apollo 13 room was much different than any escape rooms we have done before and though it was challenging, we had a great time and enjoyed how different this room was from other places. Escape Hunt Houston is one of the best, and we look forward to going back again when they have more new rooms!

The communication between game master and us was poor. It started very strong, then entering the second room the puzzle you had to complete was not explained properly. We asked for a clue, and she told us the incorrect information. Resulting in us losing. So when i asked her to explain it, she showed us. I told her that her clue was completely off from that and did not help us. The flow started out great, and the riddles and puzzels made sense. Then its as if someone else took over writing the rest of the game. My fiancé and i have completed about 15 escape rooms. And due to her poor communication and the game's lack of consistency, we will not be back at this location.

Escape Hunt Houston was a great experience! I took my daughter as a 13th birthday outing with three of her friends. The hunt was a great problem solving activity and the staff was amazing! We helped rescue the Mad Hatter from the Queen of Hearts in a Wonderland setting. Our Chashire Cat guide had a superb sassy attitude that suited the teenage party well. The attention to detail in the room was astonishing. I would absolulty suggest to attent this venue. The waiting room and restrooms were spotless.

Great fun, just make sure you know who will be doing the reading aloud to other players, we didn't and it was loud and shouting non stop. We were in a murder mystery and the employee was explaining the story in a british accent instead of her normal speaking voice(playing the british maid of the house where the murder took place) and I heard some1 complain that she couldn't understand her and was going to write a bad review. If you see a review like that please disregard it as its the most nit picky thing I'd heard. She was playing a character!!

The Escape Hunt was everything that I had hoped. The atmosphere was excellent and everything was extremely well laid out. Clues were the perfect amount of difficult yet not impossible to discover. I will definitely be trying to escape the other rooms there very soon!

It was a great adventure. 2 adults w 4 boys, range of 8-10 between us. We didn't make it all the way through -- we only solves 4 of the 6 puzzles but it was an AWESOME EXPERIENCE!

We enjoyed looking for clues and at sometimes being frustrated at not being able to figure it out. We were pleased with ourselves at completing the task minus figuring out the second part of the answer.
