We were bored and looking for something fun to do with the kids that wasn't outside in the heat! I heard about escape rooms, made a call and easily had my own time and room scheduled. I even had to change my time like 3 times and they had no problems changing. It was super fun, we love puzzles. Fun way for the whole family to work together and solve a puzzle 🙂 Can't wait for our second trip!
We had a really good time when we visited and the staff were very friendly. Truthfully I have no clue what the story behind our escape room was, even during the briefing the story lost me completely (CSI). In the end however the story and theme behind the room wasn't relevant to the actual task of escaping so it worked out. This really is the only reason it doesn't get full marks as the back story and theme play no real part in solving the puzzles and there was no real drive from us to solve a mystery.
That said, we did enjoy our time there, the puzzles were very straight forward and simple. Our only regret was doing it as a team of two as there simply wasn't enough time to shake down the room properly to find hidden clues in time. (I feel there is probably a golden ratio for the number of people you should have, not too many and not too few.) We'll do better next time!
So much fun / Perfect for a rainy day! I've been to 321 Escape Rooms twice, once at the Highway 1 location, and most recently at the Wickham Rd location. Both experiences were great!
The staff are great at explaining everything prior to entering the room. They show you a short video ahead of time that gives a great description of the scenario and the end goal. They demonstrate how to use each lock that you'll encounter. They have a large TV screen in the room with the timer counting down. For a clue all you have to do is shout out "clue." They respond with a clue immediately. We had a blast, will definitely be going back, and will be recommending to friends!
I had a great time trying to figure it out with my fam, the guide/announcer was pretty helpful when we needed her to be too she would let us scratch our heads for a while but then she gave us some guidance to get into the next step. Overall it was a great experience and would love to do it again.
Awesome awesome place!
We did the Christmas black out room today and the staff at the New Haven location did everything possible to make our experience a 10 star experience. We asked them to help make our elf Molly appear in the room for one of the tricks and they made the experience for my 6 year old so perfect that she cried she was so happy. They even went above and beyond and let my parents watch on the cameras to enjoy the moment with us. Anyone that is thinking about booking should book with them!
Would give more than 5 stars if I could, the best place for an escape! The staff is friendly and informative, the decor is authentic and the room we did was pretty historically accurate. We will be back for sure! It was a great way to spend a Saturday night. We have been to a couple different places, but after finding this gem we won't escape any place else. Highly recommend whether it is your first time or your 100th.
