The space-themed room was quirky and cool, with fun nods to Star Trek and Star Wars and enough gimmicks (lots of lights and smoke) to keep us entertained. The game itself followed a pretty clear pattern that, once you figured it out, was fairly easy...More

It was challenging and unlike other escape rooms hints are unlimited and do not penalize you. The room concept was interesting and the puzzles unique.

Well done. My daughter (age 11) and friends had a great time. Our game master (Jared) made the bank heist appropriate hardness for them. I don't think I would go any younger than 10 though.

We’ve now done all but the latest room at Perplexium, which is somewhat awkwardly sized at only 2-4 players and we generally have a group of 5-7. That said, my group has thoroughly enjoyed every room we have been able to do here. My favorite...More

Had a blast, felt like I was actually on a space ship with my crew, especially towards the end of the game!

This was so much fun for the team. We all helped and all had fun. I will be back with others soon. I have gone with my family in the past and had a great time.

Our family with our adult son and his wife had a fantastic time. Charlie was our “Genie” that provided us help in the room. I hope I didn’t get our room host name wrong because he was great to work with. We most certainly want...More

Our family of four laughed, scrambled, routed for one another, and finally completed our assigned mission. Caleb, at the Perplexium, encouraged us remotely. We left feeling energized and looking forward to trying another room in the not too distant future. Highly recommend this experience!

The Heist Escape room was awesome! The storyline, props, and full immersion experience made it great fun. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our group ranging in ages from 30-80 all had a great time and would go back in a heartbeat.
