Love. This. Place! My boyfriend and I did the Mirage room and had so much fun with it. Will definitely be back for more! Staff are nice and friendly! Definitely something to do if you're in the area.

Overall great experience for a great price. Our particular game master got annoyed with our need for help (some puzzles didn’t make sense, didn’t fit consistent theme etc). Still highly recommend, that was an individual employee. Will be returning.

I had the best time! Tom was an excellent gamemaster and really helped set the tone for our game. The theme was executed so well (it felt like I was really in a vampire's lair), and I enjoyed the variety of the puzzles used for our room. We already have plans to return and do the other rooms, as well! I can't wait!

Best Escape room yet that I have been to. My girls and I did Vampire Manor and had so much fun. We plan on going back and doing Candy Land next.

My daughter had a blast with her friends here for her birthday. This was her second time here and she's already asking to come back. It's affordable and a great idea for any occasion. We will be back!

We went with 4 adults & a teenager- everyone had a great time. The room w(Vampire Manor) well though out. The staff was helpful. We will definitely be going back to try other rooms!

We did the Candyland room last week and couldn’t escape (too many hard heads in one room)! We didn’t want to hear the ending because we want to go back and do it again. Excited to be going back tonight to try out Mirage. Such a great way to spend an hour! Very friendly staff and well thought-out rooms.

Quite challenging with a variety of puzzles. They were logical and sequential. The staff were friendly and helpful. When we requested one of our three hints, staff would let us talk though it and clarify details without penalty; unless they provided information we overlooked. We did not manage to escape from the Mirage room but definitely plan to go back to try the harder rooms. Well worth the price, we had a great time during the escape as well as after talking about it.

This is the best escape room I have been to so far. It was very challenging and we escaped with only 5 seconds left! We had a very fun time and it was very decorated! The workers where very nice and helpful and they had very good instructions and clues! Overall this escape room is awesome! Definitely will come back soon!

We went there for a family birthday and had a great time, except that we didn’t get out of the Vampire room, ha. This was the first time I had done an escape room but it was fun, challenging and the staff was friendly and helpful. Looking forward to going back!

Such a wonderful experience at Mission X Escape! We celebrated our son's 10th birthday escaping from their Candy Land themed room...a great family building exercise and so much fun! The staff were welcoming, energetic and helpful explaining the process. We definitely recommend this for a family good time!!

The staff is always so happy and helpful here. My 7 and 10 year old kids love the escape room entertainment, and Mission x accommodates them. FREE ON YOUR BIRTHDAY.

The vampire room was awesome. Everything was so thoughtfully crafted. It really made us use our brains! Nicely done!

We enjoyed our experience here and will return! We did the Mirage room with 4 people, which had challenging but doable puzzles. Would have been nice if the staff was a little faster about coming to the room after requests for hints, as that wasted a few valuable minutes each time.

This place was awesome! Staff was super fun and attentive, made us feel very emersed in the vampire escape room. We enjoyed every minute of it and this was our first attempt at any escape room. We came one lock short but got to enjoy the whole experience! We'll be back again sooner than later. Thanks guys, were now hooked!

Favorite Escape Room place so far! We did Candy Land our first time, and are going to do Vampire Manor next. I am extremely excited to see what they replace Mirage with and try Hurricane at some point too!

Awesome rooms! Love the technology they utilize and the thematic experience of the rooms. My wife and I have done several escape rooms and this one is high up on our list.

Hello, A group of us came to Mission X to do the new room, A Hero's Story. We have done 20+ rooms between us, including Vampire Manor and Hurricane at Mission X previously. Those were both great rooms which led us to enthusiastically come check out the new challenge in A Hero's Story. Sadly, while I would recommend Mission X and their rooms, this was a very poor experience. This was the first week A Hero's story was open, as it just finished Beta testing. As result of our experience, I would highly recommend restoring this new room to Beta testing and fixing a number of issues before charging people to participate. It was sadly one of the worst escape rooms we have experienced (missing clues, convoluted story, non-intuitive puzzles). I am confident it could be an enjoyable and well put together experience with some more work/thought put in to the room overall . I would give Mission X as a whole 4-5 stars, but would award A Hero's Story 0 stars, sadly. Until it is fixed, please avoid A Hero's Story. Overall: Vampire Manor = 5 stars Hurricane = 4.5 stars A Hero's Story = 0 stars Thanks!

We did the Hurricane room for our first time and had a blast. The gentleman that helped us was very informative and had a great personality. It was the perfect date night. We will definitely be back soon!

It was great. Good value for a decently hard escape room. Definitely would go back. We did the vampire room, it was entirely in the dark and really unique. It was clean and safe. Great for a group of 4-6.

We went in on a hard difficulty, hoping to escape. No dice, but we did have a lot of fun! Would definitely go again. This is such a great team building experience!

We did Vampire Manor and it was very well thought out. Definitely coming back here in the future to try out the other rooms!
