My wife and I have done all the Escape Rooms in Charlottesville (as well as many others in other cities). Unlocked History is competitive with other rooms in Cville, and has a unique history theme vibe! We thought the Thomas Jefferson room was a lot of fun, and would come back for the Edgar Allan Poe room. I can’t wait to see what this business comes up with as they keep creating!

Thank Jessy C

Thanks Jessy. We enjoyed having your group and we're glad you enjoyed the Jefferson room, but we think the Edgar Allan Poe room will especially suit you, your wife, and your friends. It will have some darker themes that we think adults will find really fun.

We had so much fun with this! The room was challenging with plenty of clues to solves to keep everyone busy and for all age/skill levels. We went as a birthday experience for my mom and she loved it! We took along my 13 year old brother and he had so much fun solving the clues. Definitely a great thing to do with family or friends. They put in a lot of thought and effort into making this a wonderful experience. The sound affects, authenticity, and creativity were just incredible. If you haven’t done an escape room before, this is a great one to do. You don’t even have to know anything about Charlottesville specifically to get through the puzzles. It’s a neat twist on the history of Cville.

Well I've done escape rooms and have enjoyed them all. This was my ten year old daughters first attempt and she wasn't disappointed. My wife joined us and all three had a blast. A very nice challenge to solve but a lot of puzzles that my daughter could work through and solve. Throw in some local history to set the tone and this is indeed a winner. We'll be back to try the Edgar Allen Poe room. Thanks for making my daughters first one a blast!

Three generations of our family had a wonderful afternoon at the History Escape Room last week. What fun! It taxes your brains with puzzles, clues, history notes, deductions, and leads to an incredibly satisfying conclusion when you "escape". A wonderful addition to the Charlottesville list of "things to enjoy".

We're delighted you enjoyed our Thomas Jefferson-themed escape room and we want you to know that we're just getting started. We'll have another high-quality escape room open in a few months that we think will be even better than the one you and your family did.

We loved this. It was so much fun. Engaging. Challenging. And so perfect since we'd been to Monticello the day before. The theme is so unique compared to all the rest. Well worth the time and money!!

Thanks for the kind words. We built our Jefferson-themed escape room to make it look as close to the Monticello as possible. We're glad you noticed all the neat inventions and little details we put in the escape room that Jefferson created himself.
