Denver’s Best Escape Room

Denver city Skyline at night

Not all escape rooms are created equal. Though it goes without saying, many individuals assume that escape rooms are simply escape rooms – how could one be so different from the next? In fact, the quality of one escape room can radically differ from the next. At EscapeWorks, we’ve experienced this firsthand. There are many companies that try to imitate what we do, but we believe we are one of a kind. At the conception of our business, we were dedicated to reimagining the escape room concept by taking it to the next level. Our reviews have proven that no one can match the quality of our work. Our escape rooms are unparalleled by any other, because we take time to perfect our rooms!

We provide rooms with varying levels of difficulty, ensuring that everyone and anyone will have fun. Do you want to take your friends and family to an escape room? Don’t settle for less than the best. Bring them to EscapeWorks Denver, where we promise a one-of-a-kind experience. We know that anyone can say they are the best, so we would like to prove it! In the following content, we hope to demonstrate exactly what sets us apart, from quality and inclusivity to positive customer reviews.

A Dedication to Quality

At times, individuals explore our website and wonder why we don’t have as many themed escape rooms as other businesses. There is a reason: we like to ensure that the rooms we already have are operating at peak performance. As Steve Jobs memorably quoted, “Quality is more important than quantity. One home run is much better than two doubles.”

At EscapeWorks, quality is the name of our game – and this sets us apart. We designed each room with a single goal: that the experience will test your critical thinking, creativity, communication, and teamwork skills while allowing you to have fun with your group. Each themed space was carefully thought through to be fully immersive and unforgettable.

A Convenient Location

Whether you’re a Denver local or you’re only in town for a short time, our location is easy to find and impossible to miss, smack-dab downtown. EscapeWorks is nestled in the city center, surrounded by a cluster of other activities for you and your group to try before or after your adventure with us. Denver is home to unique attractions, gorgeous scenery, and plenty of opportunities to have fun. For example, cross the street to visit a classic diner sure to deliver a blast from the past (and excellent food). Or, stroll right around the corner to the comedy club for a few belly-aching laughs. The options are endless in the Mile-High City, and EscapeWorks is the perfect addition to an incredible trip.

A Range of Difficulty

If you never win the games you play, you probably wouldn’t want to play them again, right? Imagine playing keep away with a pet. The first few failed attempts to snatch the toy result in anticipation and quickly rewarding the pet with the toy creates a fun game. If you never released the toy, the “game” would end in defeat and frustration. This is why we designed our escape rooms with varying levels of difficulty! If this is your first try at an escape room, your group may want to opt for an easier room. But if your group resembles the partnership between Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, you might be more interested in our most difficult rooms. Puzzles, riddles, and hidden clues become more challenging with every room. Even though not every individual who enters our escape room wins, we can guarantee that everyone who walks through our doors will leave with unforgettable memories and improved mental agility.

A Message from Our Escapees!

You’ve heard it from us. We think we provide the best, most riveting escape room experience in the area. But anyone can claim to be the greatest! However, EscapeWorks’ average rating of 4.8 out of 5 and feedback level consisting of over 1,000 reviews confirms our claims. We would like to share a few of our favorite reviews, from escapees who would agree with our conclusion:

An escapee who tried our Outbreak room in October, Gage Jones explains his riveting experience: “The most well-organized escape room I’ve been to! There are locked places for belongings as well as a unique hint system that is better than every other room I’ve been to. Outbreak is a very well thought out and designed room that eloquently railroads the players. Nearly got out too if it wasn’t for that pesky red button!”

In December, Maria Pinzon and 12 companions dove into our escape room adventure: “The staff were very helpful and fun people. We did the beyond the flower shop room theme which was designed well even for our large group of 12 people, but I could see all group sizes enjoying this room. I appreciate the attention to detail to the escape room and the challenges placed throughout. The experience was worth it for our team-bonding event, and I highly recommend this for all types of people. Thanks for all the fun!”

While spending a long weekend in town, Angela Pruitt and her group impressively conquered our Casino Heist room in January: “We were in Colorado for a long weekend and had a late flight home. We decided to try an escape room. We chose EscapeWorks and it was great. Savannah and Matt were awesome hosts. We were excited to be among the 18% that solved The Casino Heist. I encourage you to give it a try!”

    Fabulous staff and had a great time with our teens. We usually do this in every major city we visit. This location was creative and we had a great time. We chose the hardest one with a pandemic, but succeeded!

    First time doing an escape room adventure for all members of our group(4). We did Blackbeards Brig. We had such a great time. Stephanie was a great host and explained everything very well. Because it was our 1st time we were a little unsure on what to expect. The clues were great, and we were able to win our adventure with 33 seconds to spare. The facilities were well decorated and clean. The clues were somewhat hard but yet achievable. Can't wait to go back for a different adventure.

  • I had a great time at EscapeWorks Denver! We did the Egypt escape room, and it was wonderful! The team bonded wonderfully, and we now work stronger together in more business appropriate parameters. I had a great time dancing around in silly costumes and sifting through sand. However, I'm glad I came with a larger group. You'll definitely need a few sets of hands to escape (which we did!) though I'm sure the experience would be enjoyable regardless. I also did a prohibition themed room a few years back. I don't remember much about it except that I had loads of fun.

    Helen was an amazing worker! She helped us with our escape room and she was incredibly kind. Helen really made my experience completely worth it! I would come back just to talk with Helen!

  • We had a great time with the Speakeasy room. The setup was fun and the room was detailed. There was a variety of puzzles and it was fun to try to fit things together. Helen!!!! Helen was fantastic at setting the scene and helping us through with little hints when we had the right idea but just couldn’t get something to work because we were slightly off. Thanks!!

    We just did the Speakeasy and it was great! The puzzles were designed well; challenging but not impossible and really fun to solve. The rooms themselves were high quality filled with all sorts of fun props and hidden secrets. Helen, our host, was fantastic! Our unseen benefactor kept the action moving and just made the whole experience way more entertaining. Had a blast!

  • This was awesome! The escape room we did had everything—Ancient Egypt, Indiana Jones references, hieroglyphs to translate… It was challenging, but able to be solved in an hour. Our game master Tobi was really friendly & cool. And the “hints” sound was an “Easter Egg” of sorts 😉 Definitely check it out!

    Just did the Egyptian tomb n I had a great time. They put a lot of effort into the design, and story. Helen helped us out and made the experience very fun. We almost went back to do a second escape!

  • We had a great experience with 5 people in the Blackbeard room. Our first time with an escape room challenge and picked the easiest one they offered and thoroughly enjoyed completing the puzzle. Felix was a fantastic host and hints were given appropriately to keep it fun but definitely not excessively. Lots and lots of fun, would highly recommend. We will be back after having such a great time. Thank you!

    This was an unforgettable experience! We did the virus outbreak scenario for a teambuilding event. Everyone raved about how fun this was, it far exceeded expectations even for a bunch of engineer dorks. The game was brilliantly designed, the puzzles were very challenging but not frustrating. Each stage or unlock brought a great sense of satisfaction and motivation to move onto the next. Many of the puzzles required unconventional thinking and multiple knowledge domains to complete. Teamwork was a must. Staff was super helpful and their hints were perfectly timed to keep us on track. 10/10, would do again. Thank you!

  • Been to Escape Works twice now. Had an excellent experience both times. The puzzles are very clever and the rooms are fun and challenging. Particularly enjoyed the casino heist game. Stephanie was a great hostess and even spent some time with us afterwards to explain how things worked. Good fun!

    Visiting my friends in Denver and we wanted something fun to do - we made the RIGHT decision here. We booked Blackbeard’s Brig and it was awesome. Well paced and not too difficult. Just the right amount of stress. Patrick was awesome he had our backs and made the experience so fun and enjoyable. He was an awesome host. Highly recommend!!!

  • My friends and I went to Denver for the weekend and decided to do the Casino Heist room at EscapeWorks. We had so much fun trying to figure out the clues; we didn't end up 'winning' but had a great time anyway. Rose walked us through the clues to the end of the game which was a lot of fun. Thank you Rose and Felix for a fun night. If we are ever back in the area we would definitely to this again.

  • I love this place! I went in March with my daughter and we did Blackbeard's Brig, the easiest one, since I was new at escape rooms. We were paired up with another family of three. We had a blast and escaped! It was such a positive experience, I brought my family back for my daughters birthday. We did the Egyptian Tomb as a private party, since we had a group of five, and escaped! That room was amazing too! My family still tells everyone about how much fun they had in that escape room. The rooms are really well done. The puzzles are fun, unique, not easy but also not so hard you are frustrated the whole time. The themed rooms are spot on with the stories. Everything looks well maintained and clean. The staff is professional and kind. Next Denver trip we will be back for another escape room. Thank you for making our trips fun and memorable.

    The Casino Heist room was a challenge but extremely fun! It’s different than other escape rooms as you’re not allowed to ask for hints; the game master gives them to you at their discretion. Tobi was an awesome game master and only gave us hints when we were completely lost. Highly recommend!

  • EscapeWorks in Denver is AmAzInG! The gamemasters we're great! We went first to play Blackbeard's Bring, ended up loving it soooo much that after we won, we immediately wanted to do another. We did Outbreak next which was a little more challenging but was a blast to play!!! We're going back to do the other games soon, and I recommend this place to everyone! They have weekday deals, and discounts if you do multiple on the same day!

    We had a great time in the Egyptian Tomb! The puzzles and riddles were challenging and fun. Our game master Steph helped us stay on track with minimal hints. Definitely worth the money, for it was an exciting and bonding experience. It was very realistic and there was a lot of thought behind effects and puzzles. If we return to Denver again I would be happy to try out another room!
