  11. Kris Martin June 11, 2015 at 12:48 pm #

    Let the unraveling begin!

  12. Erica June 11, 2015 at 2:53 pm #

  16. Michael Nelson June 11, 2015 at 3:10 pm #

    I have never done anything like this and my friends that let us stay with them while we were moving would be interested in joining my wife and I as a team of 4, looks like a great activity

  17. Janet June 11, 2015 at 3:24 pm #

    Sounds like a great challenge!

  18. Eric June 11, 2015 at 3:36 pm #

    yes please!

  22. mary June 11, 2015 at 5:50 pm #

    I love the theme of the new room! If I win my team is going to have to keep me focused on escaping because I’m going to be too busy checking out the staging of the room!

  23. Danielle June 11, 2015 at 5:55 pm #

    I really really want to try this!

  24. Ron T June 11, 2015 at 7:39 pm #

    I need to escape my current atmosphere and spend a little time in the Ritual Room.
    I promise I’ll utilize all the thinking, observation and dexterity that I have available in
    order to succeed.

  38. Brigid Nelson June 12, 2015 at 12:58 pm #

    My friends and I enjoy the opportunity to work collaboratively at solving the puzzles and earning our escapes. It’s always an amazing experience and I always learn more about how trustworthy and capable my friends are. Recommend highly!

  39. Christina June 12, 2015 at 1:00 pm #

    These types of games are ALL I play on my phone or Kindle!! I didn’t even know we had this here! Figures we would! I would LOVE this!!

  40. Hailey Giese June 12, 2015 at 8:05 pm #

    I so badly want to go and do this. One because me and my husband are always flat broke and need something fun to do to celebrate our anniversary and birthdays. They are all coming up (June 16, 19, and 21) and I would love to surprise him with something adventurous like this. He’s very smart and I think a challenge such as this would absolutely thrill him. Two because it sounds AWESOME.

  41. Madeline June 12, 2015 at 9:33 pm #

    Wow, this sounds awesome! I would take my brother.

  56. DJ Busby June 16, 2015 at 11:27 am #

    Oh? Critical thinking is needed? I’ll have to turn up the heat… Brain’s gonna get more critical than Chernobyl.

  57. Grady June 16, 2015 at 8:24 pm #

    This would be amazing! I want to try this with my brother and sister – we’ve always been a good crew. I think we could set a new time record.

  58. Jennifer June 17, 2015 at 9:43 pm #

    I would love to win because I have never done anything like this before and it sounds awesome! How many people can go in a group?

  59. duy June 18, 2015 at 8:59 am #

  60. Trish June 18, 2015 at 9:27 am #

    I’d like to scare the bajesus out of my teenage kids with this!

  64. Nicole June 18, 2015 at 2:53 pm #

    We took our good friends and had a blast. If I won it, I would hope to put it towards the bigger room so that we could both take our kids with us. They would love to do it!

  65. Jena June 18, 2015 at 4:18 pm #

    We just moved here from Long Beach and are looking for new adventures! We tried the Escape Rooms in LA and thought they were fabulous. We want to see what Portland has to offer!

  66. Christopher Anglin June 18, 2015 at 5:05 pm #

    Ten minutes.

  67. Janet June 18, 2015 at 5:43 pm #

  72. Letha June 18, 2015 at 11:14 pm #

    We are visiting this weekend from Savannah, Georgia where we don’t have anything close to fun like this. My two kids -16 and 22- have been bugging me about doing this in Portland more than they’ve pesetered me about hitting the Voodoo Donut shop! We would love to go back home and tell all our friends about such a unique and adrenaline pumping activity!

  73. Sheri June 18, 2015 at 11:48 pm #

    My 13 year old nephew is coming to visit. His dad is in jail. His mom is homeless. My parents have temporary custody while she gets her life together. He’s an awesome kid, getting straight A’s in school. I want to show him cool things, far from Los Angeles. I want him to be a nerd, not a gangster. Free tickets to this event will help. Thanks.

  74. Garrett Brown June 18, 2015 at 11:57 pm #

    A fantastic time for my colleagues and I to dress up in Victorian, Steampunk outfits and puzzle our way through… THE CASE OF THE LOCKED ROOM!!!!

  85. Monk June 23, 2015 at 7:01 am #

    My uncle and I are avid mystery solvers, puzzle crackers, and adventurists. He has been like a father to me and I couldn’t think of a better way to thank him for all he has done for me than to take him to escapeism Portland!

  86. Lea Anna June 23, 2015 at 9:03 am #

    I’ve never done one of those things and they sound interesting.

  87. earl dizon June 23, 2015 at 10:57 am #

    i always wanted to be in this kind of situation without there actually being some sort of danger!

  88. Tris June 23, 2015 at 3:55 pm #

    I’d like to win tickets for this because nothing would give me greater joy than my friends feeling like idiots when we lose. Mwahahahaha!

  89. Wendy June 23, 2015 at 6:41 pm #

    These are my favorite type of puzzle games and a good test to see if my friends and I can work as a team or if we’re all alpha control freaks!!! Either way it sounds like a good time to me :) and unlike the online versions, there’s no cheat sheets. Three cheers for using our brains! Who’s with me?

  90. Erin June 23, 2015 at 7:22 pm #

    • Chris June 24, 2015 at 11:17 am #

      Oh no! Forgot to indent lines two and three! Hope that doesn’t spoil the haiku. :-)

  94. Minna June 25, 2015 at 2:11 pm #

    Thanks for the chance to win – this sounds like the real life realization of one of my favorite pasttimes.

    Though I wonder if folks will choose to just stay in the room if it’s air conditioned. :-\

  95. Shalee Dodge June 25, 2015 at 2:42 pm #

    Would love a crack at this :)

  96. mary June 25, 2015 at 2:43 pm #

  114. Perry July 12, 2015 at 9:12 pm #

    My girlfriends parents love these type of games I would love to take them to an evening like this.

  115. Emily April 18, 2016 at 11:48 am #

    I am either gonna get out or pass out trying! :)

  116. Samantha April 18, 2016 at 1:57 pm #

    I have a serious addiction to all things crime and criminology so I would be lying if I didn’t say I have often wondered if I would be able to escape if I was ever kidnapped by some maniac or from jail-hahahah, what better way to see if I can!!! My friends would love this too!

  117. Russ May 24, 2016 at 1:02 pm #

    I can totally figure this out…maybe…I think…um, I’m taking my wife. She’ll figure it out! Regardless, I’m totally going!

  118. Sarah Sackett May 25, 2016 at 3:32 pm #
