    First time in escape room and it was a wonderful experience! It was much more than I expected and I will definitely come back. The rooms were very well thought out, colorful and definitely challenging. Definitely worth it!

  • *****

    Did this with my coworkers and had a blast! Which is probably why we didn't exactly ace Alice Through the Looking Glass. The experience was exceptional, very well thought out and designed. Kevin, the owner, was extremely nice and we do plan to go back for the other offerings.

  • *****

    Best experience ever! Made me and my best friend think! Very challenging to us! We enjoyed every bit of it. The owner Kevin is super awesome and very helpful! Skip a movie and do this!

  • *****

    The host/owner, Kevin is amazing. Definitely bring people you communicate well with! The room was awesome. Concept, great. Kevin's guidance from the front of the house, brilliant. Would recommend to everyone! Looking forward to the Stranger Things room (coming soon).... ?

  • *****

    Great room and Camilla (game hostess) was great too!!

  • *****

    The host, Kevin is amazing. Definitely bring people you know well and already communicate well with. I went in with a friend of mine since childhood, no problem... But also her date and his friend. Two meat heads that wanted to be alphas for the entire experience. The room was awesome. Concept, great. Kevin's guidance from the front of the house, brilliant. Will recommend to everyone! Looking forward to the Stranger Things room (coming soon).... ?

    Firstly, the owner, Kevin, was so flexible with our group. We rescheduled twice and he couldn’t have been nicer. We did need some help to ‘escape’, but we were new at the whole escape concept. Even days afterwards we were still impressed by the clues and integration of everything. So fun!

  • *****

    Very well thought out. Very impressed and was extremely entertained and we all enjoyed ourselves.

  • *****

    I went with just my boyfriend to do the kidnapping in the basement room which is a harder level escape room, and we loved it!! You are blindfolded and handcuffed in the beginning and everything happens in one room. It was a childlike psychology type way of thinking which stumps you a little bit if you’re used to thinking beyond colors and numbers lol. All in all it was really fun and entertaining! Thank you so much to the owner for being so great and helpful to us and hospitable! We will definitely come back in the future!! :)

  • *****

    I’ve done both rooms at The Escape South Florida and they were the most fun and difficult ones I have come across so far! With amazing themes and mood settings you truly feel each scenario you’re encountering. I was glad I was able to stay in the room despite not escaping in time and complete the rest of the puzzles instead of being removed and having it just explained to me. Staff are absolutely amazing and if you like escape rooms or are just looking to do your first one this is the place to be! Thanks for all the fun!

  • *****

    I have done at least 11 escape rooms and this was one of the best ones I have been to. We did both of Kevin's escape rooms and loved them both. The themes are very well thought out and it is an immersive experience. All the clues tie together very well.

    For the second game we did we had 4 people with us that had never done an escape room before and weren't particularly interested in doing one. Afterwards they all said they loved it, had a lot of fun, and would like to do another one.

    If you are looking to do an escape room in the Palm Beach area, DO THIS ONE!

  • *****

    This was probably the best escape room we have done. We’ve done probably 10 different escape rooms in Florida and Ohio and The Through the Looking Glass was so unique and challenging. The owner was especially nice and helpful and while we didn’t make it out in time , (we were a group of 4), we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. You can tell much imagination was put into this room and we would love to return and try another one.

  • *****

    It was great... Our first time doing an escape room, so we failed miserably lol. We over thought every little thing. But we had fun and laughed while we did it.

  • *****

    The most fun my teen daughter and friends have ever had!!!
    Best escape experience in town.
    Kevin went above & beyond to make it a great night!
    I totally recommend checking it out. You wont be disappointed!

  • *****

    Have been through both experiences and they were amazing!!!

  • *****

    We did the Alice through the looking glass room. It was great! The riddles and puzzles were well thought out. Kevin was really helpful! We'll definitely be back to try the other room!

  • *****

    It was so much fun!!!! We had a blast! ???? Really challenging and you can tell it took 9 months for your team to create such an amazing experience. Keep on making the best Escape experiences in Florida. Nothing else compares ???????????????? ????

  • *****

    It was challenging , but had a very fun time , the instructor was very good! Had a blast with my friends

  • *****

    We had a great time today! In town for Spring Training games and had some free time. Highly recommend The Nightmare in The Gardens Room! We barely made it out (4 min to spare I think). So much fun!!

  • *****

    A great time! Fun to do something different. Kevin and his staff were fantastic!!! Customer service at its finest!!!

  • *****

    Haven't stopped talking about it since "our escape" (My seven year-old now wants to create is own escape room. lol)

    "Looking Glass" was wild. Still trying to piece it all together. Kevin has taken this escape room to another level. Get ready to be transported to another dimension!

  • *****

    We had a great time at this escape room. We accidentally booked the wrong date and when we showed up he wasn't expecting us. Instead of turning us away he was able to accommodate us.

    We did the Alice in wonderland themed rooms. It was neat how everything was incorporated into the rooms. The puzzles were not too difficult but, did require some thinking through in strange ways. There were multiple solutions for some of the puzzles so if you didn't understand some aspect of the puzzle there was another way out/red herring.

  • *****

    These are the best rooms we have ever done. We did one and had so much fun we came back for the other one. Kevin is very helpful and never gibes you the answers but if u need help he helps you think about it so you can figure it out on your own.

  • *****

    One of my favorite rooms so far. We were a group of 7 doing the 'Through the looking glass" room. I had my family with me. Several first timers.
    I have done around 10 rooms so far and knew this room would be challenging because we were told it was a 9/10 by the owner Kevin. Looking back I probably would have want to do the room with a few less people but it was an amazing room and super challenging and fun. I am a super fan of Alice in Wonderland and the graphics and the overall layout was mind blowing. We did get helpful hints along the way and Kevin really wants groups to get through the game and escape. We appreciated him getting us back on track.
    We will be back to do the "nightmare in the gardens" room.
    I highly recommend this place, you will not be disappointed :)

  • *****

    My daughter really wanted to do an escape room over spring break - and we love Alice in Wonderland - so this one was the one we chose. It was awesome! She had an excellent time and I recommend it highly! We are coming back to do the other room.

  • *****

    After doing many escape rooms in several different countries, I can honestly say the Looking Glass was in my Top 2. There is no doubt we will be going back for the other room. Don't want to give anything away, but very interactive. 5 stars hands down!

  • *****

    It's unfortunate that this place doesn't have 5 stars because of one woman's misjudgment of the owner. I brought my boyfriends family here and we had more fun than we imagined we would. The owner Kevin is a genius for creating this room (we did the Alice in Wonderland). We were so amazed by the mind behind it! Definitely challenging and we had to ask for some hints but it was a wonderful team-building activity and resulted in some good laughs. We can't wait to go try the other room!

  • *****

    This was so much fun!! Highly recommend! The owner was awesome and would go back!

  • *****

    I took my fiancé here as an early Valentine's day date, and let me tell you IT WAS A BLAST! We did the Through the Looking Glass challenge and as someone who loves Alice in Wonderland books and movies it was just so very well done! The puzzles, the rooms, the atmosphere etc! Kevin was very welcoming and helpful when needed, and since this was our first ever escape room, we appreciated the hints when we asked! I would definitely recommend this place, and we will DEFINITELY be coming back to the nightmare room!!!!

  • *****

    I loved this place my sister was moving away up north so I took her my mother and my other sister here and we had a blast thought it was going to be easier but I was wrong I love the challenge and the owner is a great person very cool highly recommended if you want to have fun

  • *****

    As a first time Escape Room experience I can honestly say that you've successfully created 5 new addicts. Camila was utterly fantastic from the introduction at the door to the beginning of the story all the way to the very end. We want to thank Kevin as well and we will definitely be back. The experience was captivating and one that makes you talk about it as soon as you escape...if you escape...

  • *****

    A group of 5 of us decided to do an escape room for the very first time. After some research, we booked the Alice in Wonderland room the same
    day. We arrived early and the staff was kind to suggest we wait at the nearby Dunkin' Donuts until it was closer to our time. One of the staff members actually came to DD to get us a few minutes early. I thought that was very nice. After we signed the waivers and put our belongings in the provided lockers, the owner, Kevin, explained the premise of the Wonderland room. He made sure we knew how to work the walkie talkies and told us we would be traveling through different places (rooms) and had us begin. The staff gave us clues as needed and I didn't think they were too helpful at all. The details and different types of challenges were great. You can tell the owner and creator put a lot of heart, creativity, and hard work into his business and making sure people have a great time. After we finished, Kevin took a picture of our group in front of an Alice quote and sent it to us. We can't wait to go back and experience their other room!

  • *****

    The Alice in Wonderland escape room was simply phenomenal. My family and I had a blast getting through it with just the right amount of clues from the friendly girl that works there. The rooms were dark yet visually stunning and unbelievably clever. I would definitely recommend to friends, and I look forward to coming back to try the other room.

  • *****

    I had the most memorable experience. It was so much fun trying to solve the riddles. The rooms are well thought out. Kevin even went out of the way to orchestrate our engagement proposal in the escape room. He was so helpful and courteous. It was definitely a day me and my soon to be husband will never forget and I recommend The Escape South Florida to everyone. We will definitely be back

  • *****

    We had an amazing time at the escape room! It was a completely submersed experience and the family truly appreciated every second! Highly recommend it!

  • *****

    Great escape room. Definitely one of the harder ones that I have done)))) Everything was well designed and very well thought out. Kevin is a great guy.
    Thank you so much we are coming back!

  • *****

    Through the Looking glass was amazing! The room completely encapsulates you. This is just the best family, adult, friend and any,hang out you can have. If you’d like to enjoy an amazing, one of a Kind experience, THIS is the place!

  • *****

    This was the first escape room that I've done, but it was incredible. The room (Nightmare in the Gardens) was super fun but also challenging. Customer service is also wonderful!

  • *****

    Nightmare In The Gardens was my first escape room, but I thought it was incredible. I find puzzles and things like that really interesting. We got out at exactly 60 minutes, but it was a lot of fun. I really want to do the Wonderland one some day because I'm a big fan of things like that and art. I highly suggest visiting this place and doing an escape room. The staff is absolutely amazing as well and extremely nice and helpful. I'm definitely going to be going back to do Through the Looking Glass and any rooms they add in the future.

  • *****

    We went as a group of five for a work outing and were all first-time escape room goers. We had so much fun! The rooms are incredibly detailed and insanely clever. When we needed hints, Kevin helped us focus and gave great instructions to lead us in the right direction. Leaving, we all agreed we'd definitely want to go back and do the other room and to bring our families and friends. The Escape South Florida will not disappoint!

  • *****

    We had an amazing experience getting Through the Looking Glass! We'll go back to tackle the Nightmare in the Gardens next Auntie/Niece vacay!!!

  • *****

    I loved it, I went with my friends for a birthday party and it was excellent! So much fun and definitely gets your mind thinking. Definitely will be doing to again!!

  • *****

    This was so much fun for our entire group. For my sons 15th Birthday party it was absolutely perfect and we will be talking about the experience for awhile. Kevin was fantastic and so helpful-thank you?and extremely accommodating, for this type A mama?. Thank you again for a terrific opportunity for our group. We loved it and will highly recommend to everyone

  • *****

    They did an amazing job!! We did the Alice and wonderland rooms and the art alone is worth it! The cleaver-ness of the rooms were genius! We ARE going back for the second room!!!

  • *****

    The Alice room was great! Extremely challenging but fun and creative. The staff was super friendly, would definitely recommend this place.

  • *****

    This place was a BLAST!!!! Highly highly recommend!!!!

  • *****

    It was so much fun! Very intense and made us use our brains, but we loved it!

  • *****

    This place is unreal!! This is extremely fun and thought provoking. I would recommend this to literally anyone. Old and young.

  • *****

    What a great experience! Very challenging and creative. Kevin and his assistant were amazing and we will definitely be back for another challenge!

  • *****

    Visually Appealing. Interaction with room puzzles was amazing. Flow of room was really creative and fun. Riddles were themed as well. Great bonding experience with co-workers. We did the Alice in Wonderland (Through the Looking Glass) themed room and the riddles, decorations and environment were spot on! Kevin was incredibly helpful with the booking process and Camila was a great game master and very friendly. Going back ro check out their Nightmare in the Gardens!

  • *****

    We did the Alice themed room. It was very challenging and frustrating in a good way. I definitely think this was one of the best rooms I did.

  • *****

    Great escape room. Definitely one of the harder ones that I have done so far. Everything was well designed and very well thought out. Kevin is a great guy, stop by and do a room sometime. I highly recommend it!

  • *****

    My first time at an escape room and it was such a great experience! The room it self was well put together, fun and challenging. The owner Kevin went above and beyond before, during and after our experience a level of customer service that is not seen in today’s day. I have family coming in town for the holiday season and I cannot wait to share this with them. Thank you again Kevin!!!

  • *****

    We went there last week and did the room called “Through the Looking Glass” and we had a blast it was just enough to make us think but not so hard we couldn’t finish. Also on top of the the art work and thought put into this room will blow your mind like the owner says “it’s not magic” but it’s damn close to it. In all we loved it and are going back to try the 2nd room very soon.

  • *****

    I have wanted to do an escape room for the longest time! For my Birthday tonight we finally had a chance and I wasn’t disappointed at all! We followed that white rabbit and didn’t look back! Pretty challenging and keeps you on your toes but help is there if needed! Can’t wait to go back for the next challenge!

  • *****

    Wow!! So much fun! We had a double date at The Escape room with the Alice and Wonderland story line. It was creative and constantly entertaining/challenging.

    I HIGHLY recommend planning a night here.

  • *****

    What a great time, totally impressed, Kevin was awesome, went with my daughter and two teenage grandchildren to the Alice in Wonderland room. We had so much fun for our incredible hour, felt like we were there longer, trying to get through the clues. Extremely well done, keeps your mind alive with different ways to solve the clues. If you want to get lost in a wonderful up feeling this is the place. Thank you Kevin for the experience.

  • *****

    I came with a group of six to do the Alice room. Even with six people this was very challenging. I thought the room was put together very well. It was a really good experience!

    I read some of the other reviews. Yes, they do give clues if you fall behind. We were grateful for the clues when we needed them because we wanted to finish. I would think if you let them know up front that you want less help they will respect that.

    Anyhow, as of today this was the 10th Escape room I have done. I would rank this very high amongst the other rooms I have visited. I would like to come back and do the kidnapping room.

  • *****

    Hands down the most creative and fun escape room I have been to. Myself and 5 other people did the Alice in Wonderland room. It was so much fun! There are multiple rooms you have to go through and the art, lights and clues play to the theme perfectly. If you get out of the room within the top 5 best times, your team name gets put on the leader board. We had a great time and the staff was incredibly nice. I definitely reccommend checking them out!

  • *****

    Best experience with escape rooms! I accidentally scheduled the wrong day, I called as he was going home and he didn't hesitate to let us come the day before our booking and stay an hour more than he needed to! Nice facility and intense, challenging rooms! We did "Through The Looking Glass" and got out a little over an hour, it was very fun and mind-challenging. He was completely understanding and I would recommend 10/10 to anyone!

  • *****

    Great team building experience our group truly enjoyed the outing.
    We appreciate you being flexible with the schedule to make this event a success.
    Looking forward to our next opportunity to Escape!!

    This was our 3rd escape room experience. We enjoyed it very much, the girls had to really think logically and like a child all over again. We would highly recommend this to escape room enthusiasts!

  • *****

    Great time! Definitely a challenge! Kevin and staff are helpful and nice. We are definitely going to go back and try the second room and make it a team building work event.

  • *****

    We had a great time. The girl who was working was very friendly and willing to chat and the room itself (we did through the looking glass) was amazing with lots of twists and turns!

  • *****

    My family and I had visited as a result of a Groupon ad, and from beginning to end we had a great time! From the gag on the front door to the tricky riddles in the actual rooms themselves, we had an outstanding time! The owner there seems to be a great guy, smiles from the moment we walked in, and when we were stumped, he never hesitated to give us clues to help solve the riddles, 5 out of 5, and hopefully will be going back soon!

  • *****

    Made for a fun experience with the family. Theme and scenario we're great for Nightmare in the Gardens. Staff are super friendly and provide help if you need it - and you probably will! We're definitely going back for Through the Looking Glass!

  • *****

    Went with my sister and brother in law on a rainy day. This was all our first time so the guy explained everything really well. We did the Alice in wonderland room and you could tell a lot of work and thought went into making them. We had a great time and it was very challenging. The only thing we weren't huge fans of is that the guy at the front would provide unsolicited clues when he saw we were stuck. I just think he should wait for us to ask for a clue instead of just providing it. Overall we thought it was a really fun experience and would definitely return or recommend.

  • *****

    This is legit the best escape room I have been to and I have been to several in the south Florida area. The owner clearly put so much effort into designing and putting together the rooms. We did the Alice in Wonderland themed room and though it was challenging, it was very fair (and aesthetically impressive) and fun. Regarding the negative reviews below- it is normal for you to be made aware of your remaining time in all escape rooms. That is how you know how much time you have left to finish and it is a big factor (at least for me) in deciding whether or not to attempt to solve a puzzle with or without a clue. Second, he does not say that a "second grader" can solve the room to be condescending, he says it so that you don't think too much into what the clues are asking for because, as he says, the answers are simple. It's a shame anyone would say anything negative about a business that obviously someone worked so hard to plan and create.

  • *****

    This is easily one of the top two Escape Rooms I've been to and I've been to at least five other Escape Rooms in South Florida at various locations. The production quality of the rooms is excellent! They put a lot of work into making the rooms interactive and fun. The puzzles are challenging but fair. I never felt cheated by a "cheap" clue. Definitely coming back here again!

  • *****

    Great experience and the staff was very professional and friendly.

  • *****

    just got done with the "nightmare in the gardens" room. so much fun!! Don't over think things! the owner helps ya out just enough to help you enjoy the experience to the max.

  • *****

    We are on a family vacation and it was raining today, so we were looking for something fun to do. We have always wanted to do an escape room, but couldn't find one that felt the themes were appropriate for our 10 year old. However, we found this adventure to be fun and exciting for everyone. Kevin, the owner was very helpful, when we needed help. He was committed to helping us get through to the end and we felt a great sense of success in accomplishing the "Through the Looking Glass" rooms. This adventure was family friendly for our young teen and pre-teen family.

  • *****

    This was one of the best escape rooms that I have ever done. It was very well paced, not so hard that you get stuck on one clue for a long time but not so easy that you're out quick. We did the Alice in wonderland room and the amount of detail and whimsy that was put in to it was fantastic. Now to go back and do the other room!

  • *****

    Best escape experience ( this is the third place I've been)!!! I did the Alice in wonderland one, there were multiple rooms, the puzzles were challenging but not impossible. We completed the escape with a minute to spare. The owner was there, and was super cool.

  • *****

    I can not express how much I enjoyed the experience. It's a great challenge and the owner could not be any better. He was helpful when needed but let us figure out things on our own. I would recommend this place for anyone who wants to have an amazing time from the moment you walk into the door. Even if it's your first time. The owner will help you enough that you still feel like you did it all on your own!!!

  • *****

    My Fiance and I had the best time! The clues were amazing and we left there talking about it the whole way home! We can't wait to come back with others and have another great date night.

  • *****

    This was By Far the Best Escape Room I have ever experienced. It was Extremely Creative, Challenging yet Doable, Entertaining, and Suspenseful! Kevin goes Above and Beyond to Accommodate needs, Provide support, and Assist w/helpful hints from the moment you walk through the door. Everyone MUST check out The Escape-South Florida!!!
