I am so glad my husband and I went to Upstate Escapes! We went to the Return to Sender option. Unfortunately, we did not escape. But in all honesty, we didn't care. We had so much fun (as did the other couple that played with us) that we want to come back! I HIGHLY recommend you go!

I'm a huge fan of escape rooms and I was so excited when coming to Upstate Escapes. I was shocked by how unprepared they were. While we were in the room the game master had to come in twice to fix things that were not prepared for us properly because he had forgotten to do them. It was very unprofessional. In the room we were in we were lucky my husband (who is tall) was with us because things were outlined on top of a shelf and it was so high that people shorter than 5'7 could not see on top of it and it was essential to the game. You are supposed to get three hints and we kept asking for our third hint and yet it never came. It was extraordinarily frustrating. Needless to say, we will not be going back. I do not recommend this place to anyone. There are other escape rooms in the area that are much better.

We did both the return to sender and zombie themed room. The return to sender one was great for the most part except for the very last clue to get out. It was a little vague and requires some specific prior knowledge to figure it out.

The zombie one was terrible. The clues were so overly vague and it is highly unrealistic to expect people to solve them by themselves. We had to have various clues/helps along the way. Supposedly we were close to the end, but if it required that much assistance then it sort of defeats the purpose. Very frustrating experience...

This was our first time doing an escape room so I don't have much to compare it to. We will be going somewhere else for the next experience.

I have been a mystery seeking super sleuth since elementary school. So now nearly 30 years later if it's a TV show or a book that centers around "Who done it, What Happened, etc" I am drawn like bears to honey. "The Bomb" room was the most fun I have had in my life. We actually host a Couples Game event monthly and I am beyond excited to now have something we can go do for ourselves and participate. This is the best place in the city for fun, excitement, and intrigue. I loved every minute even though we didn't escape. You know it's great fun when you dream about being back in the room trying to escape. Counting down the days to our return!

My wife and I are big escape room fans and have played a bunch of rooms in multiple countries. We tried one of the rooms at Upstate Escapes while visiting Greenville recently. This experience was mixed at best, and ultimately left us disappointed.

Because we've played many rooms before and were up for a challenge, we chose the hardest room, "The Bomb". This was ultimately a mistake - the web site indicated the relative difficulty of each room, but failed to mention the 100% failure rate of this particular room. That would have been good to know up front: a room boasting 0% success is an indicator of poor room design, rather than the cleverness of the designer, and had we known that nobody's ever succeeded we would have chosen a different room or a different company. Telling us about it via a computer monitor in the room only after the game was already underway mostly just added insult to injury. To be clear, we don't have a problem with failing to escape (and we did) if the room is otherwise well-done and fair. This room didn't really fit into that category.

On the plus side, parking was ample and the room decor was decent, if a little thrift shop-ish. The 1960s Cold War theme worked well enough, although the puzzles were random and made little thematic sense (to be clear, that's common and I don't consider it a big deal). A couple of the puzzles were clever and interesting, and we appreciated that the room didn't just immediately present a big collection of padlocks (a common problem in many escape rooms). We were informed at the beginning that one of the props in the room wasn't working, but it's debatable whether this made much difference to our experience. On the other hand several puzzles were entirely non-obvious, and overall there was a gross over-reliance on one particular device that was reused over and over (and over) again. Most problematic was the fact that we had to violate the rules of the room to solve at least two puzzles -- one required taking something off the wall, the other required moving some furniture that appeared to be marked as off limits. Not insurmountable problems, to be sure, but when the game master tells you up front not to do those things it's very frustrating to realize you have to do them and effectively "cheat" to win. Difficulty should come from the quality of the puzzles, not trying to figure out the actual rules.

Worst of all from our standpoint was the provision of hints (or lack thereof). We were told we could ask for up to three hints, which are probably helpful (necessary?) in a game with a 100% failure rate. We started a little slowly and we asked for and received the first clue 15 minutes into the game. From there we made some decent progress, solving most of the puzzles in immediate evidence, but ultimately became stuck and asked for our second hint at 35 minutes. Unfortunately it turns out the lone game master had stopped monitoring our game to deal with another group of customers who'd arrived (we could hear them from our own room) and he didn't respond. We spent the last 25 minutes of the game aimlessly trying random things while repeatedly asking for our second hint, which never actually came, until eventually time expired and the game master came in to inform us we'd failed and ask if we'd had fun. We'd had some, of course, but in the end any fun was outweighed by the frustration about the deceptive rules and the unavailability of the two remaining hints. He then pointed out that "it *was* the hardest room" and suggested that having solved all the early puzzles we could pay to come back and try the room again to try and finish (er, "no thanks").

Overall this was a mixed experience. I would not recommend "The Bomb" room to other customers, and I would recommend to Upstate Escapes that they should make some simple changes to address the most obvious problems: advertise the 100% failure rate up front, adjust the rules to be consistent with the puzzles, and hire additional staff to continue to monitor the room while other groups are coming in. Perhaps do some play-testing and adjustment of the room's difficulty level to make it "hard but winnable" (or keep it impossible, as long as you advertise it as such). I can't speak to the other rooms at Upstate Escapes, they may be better and/or more enjoyable and less frustrating. Based on our experience, I wouldn't recommend "The Bomb" and probably won't be back to try their other rooms.

Our group did the Bomb room and failed. We had been told that this particular room has a 100% fail rate, so going in, so we expected it to be hard. I don't want to give too much away. While I like a good challenge, I do eventually expect to be able to solve it. Some clues just seems extremely vague. The room decor was great for the time era.

I have done several Escape Rooms all around the South East and this one was the worst experience. First our group was not briefed about the room/goal before entry. The employee seemed to brag about the not being solved yet...... and once we experienced it we see way. After confirming with friends several clue were not available to our group creating gaps that caused use not to conquer the room. I will look for other Escape room experiences in the future.

I took my husband to Upstate Escapes for his birthday. I wanted to find something to do that was unique and fun. Wow, this was it! An experience like no other. I would highly recommend it! We did the "Return to Sender" room and we had a blast. It is described as a beginner room but we still found it very challenging. Mike, specifically, was great. He helped make it awesome. I will definitely go back and I have already told a ton of friends! Try it, it is worth it by far!
