About
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be an Adventurer like Indiana Jones or a Tomb Raider like Laura Croft? Or maybe how it would feel to be trapped in a horror movie like Saw or Silence of the Lambs? Could you escape a maximum security prison or survive a night in a Haunted Asylum, or break into a bank vault to steal a priceless jewel without setting off the alarms?

Excellent puzzles and sets!
Jun 2021
We are escape room enthusiasts. We have done 100’s around the world. We went with a couple who flew down to New Orleans to meet us just to do these games as they are enthusiasts as well. We did all seven games within 24 hours. First of all, know that you can get a 20% discount on any game after the first one.

If this is TLDR, the generalization would be that rooms are awesome and you should definitely do them! Two minor annoyances: Every game has flashlights being used. The games stay rather dark and while it creates a mood it can be slightly annoying. Several of the games have an IPAD that you take with you. You can use this to look for clues. Honestly, I didn’t like this mechanic - it takes you away from the immersion - and in a dark room it’s hard to take a picture of the barcode. They seem to use it so gamemasters don’t have to pay as close as attention to the room.

Death Room - a solid game. Well done. Worth playing but the set doesn’t have any wow factors like the rest do. The puzzles were good we really enjoyed the room. Not a search heavy game at all.

The collector - dimly lit good game. There is a bit of an “ick” factor in the set (gory) - but the set is very well done. It does have a bit of searching, but has a few unique elements.

Spellbound - Excellent room. No ipad, instead has a “cat” helping you out. Much better for clue immersion. The set was fantastic. A good mix of linear and non-linear puzzles. One of the top two rooms as far as actual puzzling is concerned.

Agent 13 - Honestly, it was awful. One of the worst games we have done in awhile. The set was cool but the puzzles weren’t. Really dark. Super linear. With four people I was literally bored as there are several bottlenecks in which there is only work for two people. Meanwhile the ending is clunky and cumbersome.

Asylum - Makes our Top 10 list of games we have ever played! I scare easy - so I jumped several times - but that actually made it that much more immersive. A great non-linear game. Excellent set and excellent puzzles. All four of us stayed busy the entire time! LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this game!

Tomb of Anubis - Excellent set! This game is the darkest of the sets and you have to use your flashlight a lot - but that was the only drawback of the room. The puzzles were good - there are just SO many of them. We did not escape - but we still had a blast. Honestly, this is the only room where I felt like it should be a 75 minute room.

Cutthroat Cavern - The set is amazing. Seriously amazing. There are a few good puzzles, but this room is a search heavy room - annoyingly search heavy. I actually didn’t have that much fun because the room is SO big and you are just supposed to be searching. This room could have benefited from a book or better laid out clues as the searching just felt so random. However, the set is great. We did this one last and honestly, I wish we would have done it somewhere in the middle. The puzzling was a bit of let down to end on.

Overall - totally worth our trip to Baton Rouge. Highly recommend this facility. All four of us agreed that Asylum was one of the BEST GAMES we have EVER played. We all agreed that Spellbound and Tomb of Anubis were in the top 3 puzzling rooms here, and while we don’t love the puzzling involved in Cutthroat we did enjoy the set.

Fully Immersive Rooms! Excellent!
Mar 2021
Like several reviewers, we have done more than 100 escape rooms. The rooms have high production value. We really felt like we were in another country, location, or environment. It was incredibly immersive. We did 6/7 of the rooms. We chose to skip Asylum because we were afraid it was going to be too scary!! Ha! The best game was Cutthroat Cavern. Tomb of Anubis was amazing as well, but the puzzles were more difficult to understand. Some times we did not know what we were trying to do with the items we were given.

If you play more than one game, they give you a 20% discount on the following games.

It was worth the drive from New Orleans! Lots of fun!

Best Games!!! Do them all!!
Sep 2020
We had heard great things about 13th Gate, and they were right. We did all 7 rooms, and all were fantastic. Cutthroat Cavern and Tomb of Anubis were two of the best rooms we've done (and we've done well over 400 rooms). And, Cutthroat was my wife's favorite of all time! Marissa and Emma were fantastic as gamemasters and very supportive and friendly. Highly recommend going here!!+

The BEST Escape Rooms in the United States. Hands down.
Aug 2020 • Friends
Let me start this by saying my friend and I have done around 175 rooms in places all over the world. Before this, our favorite room was a place in Amsterdam. This place has now taken the torch. They take Escape Rooms to another level. The aesthetics, the visuals, the props, the games, the immersive experience, the grand scope Of the rooms. They definitely take this ALL up a notch. Their top room is Cutthroat Cavern. The game is a spectacle on its own. It is a grand scale game. Very unique experience. The puzzles are AMAZING. My second favorite room was Asylum. Great jump scares. Amazing scale on this game. Spellbound was my third favorite. All games have a great flow to them and the staff is extremely helpful. If you only have time to do one. Do Cutthroat Cavern for sure. Best Escape Rooms in the United States. For now. Until we find another one.

The Best Rooms In The World!
Aug 2020 • Family
I know that many reviews say that they just did the best room in the world, but the two rooms that we just did, Cutthroat Cavern and Tomb of Anubis, redefined the escape room experience for us forever. My family has traveled around the world escape rooms in over twenty States and 6 countries and nothing prepared us for this. If you are looking for a completely immersive challenge at will blow your mind make the trip here!

Cutthroat Cavern...It is the Standard!
Jun 2020
Disclaimer: There will be no spoilers, however, I am writing this review from the perspective of an escape room enthusiast. Cutthroat Cavern was my 72nd Escape Game.

Booking: 13th Gate usually does open bookings and has a minimum of 4 players. Due to COVID, they have made some changes, please refer to their website. Taylor was super accommodating for me after I explained the extremely small time frame that I would be in the area, we were able to get a booking in place.

The Game: Wow. I'll start off with that. This was my fourth Golden Lock-In Award Winning Room that I have played and it came with very high expectations. The set design and level of immersion was absolutely insane. It was the best of the best. There was no comparison and it is the standard. For me, with my level of experience, I was able to recognize some of the puzzle rather easily. There were a few things that I completely overlooked because they were so immersive. Overall, I would say that the difficultly level was moderate. I think a group of 4-6 would be perfect. We played with 4.

Staff: The staff was awesome and they were super accommodating. They also took time with us in the lobby and chatted about the industry. That is one of my favorite parts of the escape room business. We all have this odd love for the games and the experiences that we share in playing them.

In the end, I highly recommend 13th Gate Escape. Cutthroat Cavern is the standard and it is the best out there. Go play it!

This is the best set of escape room that we have ever been to. Trace was our game master for Tomb of Anubis and was awesome. I hope we get him every time we go back. Thanks To Trace and the 13th gate team for the AWESOME time

Definitely the best!
Mar 2020
We have done a LOT of escape rooms and this is by far the best as far as their design. It was so immersive. We did the Asylum and Cut Throat Cavern. Our favorite of the two was Asylum. The puzzles were well thought out and made sense. There were a couple glitches in Cut Throat Cavern that need to be worked out, but it was still excellent. I can't imagine there is another escape room in the country with better immersive rooms. It reminds me of something Disney would do.
