‪My son and I did the Sherlock Holmes escape room in November. We are both huge Holmes fans and were really looking forward to the experience. We were not disappointed. The “set” were beautifully designed and had a very authentic feel. The entire experience seemed deeply rooted in the Holmes tradition and the puzzles were fun and challenging. My son has a lot of experience with escape rooms but I do not and even I was able to work through many of the puzzles. We were able to complete the experience with 4 minutes to spare. The staff was friendly, professional and helpful. We had an absolutely wonderful time and hope to go back soon.‬

‪I did the Sherlock Holmes escape room with two other friends, and we had an amazing time! We were thrown for a rather challenging set of puzzles that truly tested our intelligence! Even when the hosts had to throw hints at us, they still made sure that they kept the hints vague, or thematically appropriate. I intend on revisiting this escape room for its other rooms, and I have and will continue to tell others about this phenomenal Orlando attraction!‬

‪We had done two other games here and decided to try the 2 hr adventure. We had high hopes but we very disappointed. I don't think they were staffed correctly because when we asked for a clue it would take several pushes of the button and took them at least 5 minutes to answer us. Most times they were asking us what we needed so I know they were not watching our progress. It was very disappointing because we needed only 1 more minute in order to escape and likely would have been fine if we were assisted in a more timely manner. Thankfully this was the last game we had to do here.‬

‪We were a group of seasoned escape room players with 50-150 rooms played by all 5 in our group. We played “A Knight To Escape”

Pros: Beautiful set design. It looks and feels very well built

Cons:
Truly terrible puzzle flow. Most puzzles don’t fully make sense, even after you have solved them.

Staff was mediocre at best. I expect this from a hole in the wall business charging $25 but at $70 per person, I want more than mediocre interaction with staff that doesn’t seem to want us there.

Lack of game game master. As has been mentioned by other reviews (which I only read after playing 😢) the game masters don’t actually watch your game. They only peek in when you hit a button to request a hint. This means you can spend a lot of time doing the wrong thing and no one will tell you. This happened when we accidentally solved a puzzle and then tried using the extremely vague puzzle pieces that didn’t really tie in for an extra 20 minutes, only to ask for a hint and be told that we wouldn’t need those anymore. A good game master would have caught that and helped us out.

Lack of puzzles. There are only 7 or maybe 9 puzzles total (depending on what you count as a puzzle) for this two hour experience. Most of your 2 hours is spent trying endless possibilities of configurations since the puzzles and vague and not intuitive. This could easily be a 60 minute game if the puzzles weren’t so poorly designed. Some very simple modifications would take out so much confusion.

Lots of bored standing around. There really isn’t much to do. Most of the game is split into two teams. One team twiddles their thumbs while the other team solves a puzzle. Once solved they pass whatever they received to the other team and wait 15 minutes while that group solves a puzzle. This repeats for 2 hours.

Overall, I would strongly recommend visiting some of the other amazing companies in Orlando like Doldricks, The Escape Game or Venture Brothers, but I would avoid “A Knight To Escape”, unless you have $70 per person to waste and like your group to be annoyed afterwards.‬

‪I can see why The Escape Effect was rated #1 in Orlando. We played two games, Sherlock Studies and Fright Before Your Eyes. Niki was our host for both games and was very helpful and delightful. I truly enjoyed solving puzzles and clues in both games and having extra time helped our group of three players. We are in the process of booking Odds With the Gods, and I look forward to doing that one for my birthday.‬

‪The Escape Effect is for sure my favorite escape game place, I've been to quite a few in the central Florida area, and none of the other places are nearly as good! It's rare these days to find staff as friendly as theirs, but their game At Odds with the Gods is by far the best escape game I have ever played! My partner, my friend, our friends and I all just finished playing it tonight and was so much fun! We were all immersed in the game play the entire time! I am planning to come back and play one of their other games, Fright Before Your Eyes.

They are also very LGBTQ+ friendly and take COVID-19 precautions seriously. We were a group of two gay couples and we all felt very welcomed and comfortable in their space! They throughly sanitise the rooms between each party and all staff wears masks. it's an all around very genuinely kind and fun atmosphere!‬

‪Just played at Odds With The Gods with me and a group pf friends, and it was such a rush! I loved it, every part of it and I didn’t want it to end, I just wanted to keep playing! I can’t wait to go back and play Fright Before Your Eyes, and honestly all of the other games as well. The attention to detail, the set design and the puzzles is unmatched here at The Escape Effect! Not to mention The Escape Effect staff is so friendly, helpful, and polite! The whole experienced was amazing start to finish. I found my new favorite place for my new favorite hobby. Can wait to visit you again!‬

‪Since at 120 minutes, “A Knight to Escape” is the longest escape room in Florida, and we try to tackle at least one escape room everywhere we visit, this one seemed like the logical choice for my family and I to attempt in Orlando.

Either I built-up the thought of how cool a Medieval Castle-themed escape room would be too much in my head or it just wasn’t all that it was cracked up to be, but either way, the six of us were kind of letdown by it in the end — and yes, we did escape, so that wasn’t the reason why.

Here are just a few of the complaints we had…

1) We like to do escape rooms without NEEDING to use clues (those should be there only as a luxury for besting the clock as you near the end of your adventure), and in this particular instance, doing so is absolutely impossible! I don’t want to say too much at this end because I don’t want to give anything away for future game players; however, I can guarantee you that you won’t be able to solve this escape room without pressing that button at least a few times. You just won’t be able to! There are things that you have no way of knowing are in another room, since you can’t see in there, that you will have to link up to whatever side of the castle you’re in, to accomplish what needs to get done. That just makes this escape room impossible to do on your own without pressing what I normally refer to as “the luxury button” (the clue button), and pressing that button obviously takes some of the joy out of your problem-solving mission, since you don’t get to experience that sense of self-discovery and accomplishment when doing so.

2) “The Luxury Button” (the clue button) itself. In short, that button doesn’t work — it may as well be broken! Thank heavens that I saved this place’s phone number on my phone before arriving and that I got reception while locked in the room because, after pressing the button and “waiting” (although I kept working on the room wherever possible as I did so), five minutes would pass by each time, before I’d start assuming the button didn’t work again, get frustrated, pull out my cell phone, and dial the front desk. Each time my team and I needed a clue, I had to end up letting the clock wind down a few minutes and dialing their front desk because their clue button was apparently on the fritz — let that sink in, while doing a TIMED challenge!

(We’ve done double-digit escape rooms, and I’ve never seen that be the case anywhere else — at least, not EVERY SINGLE TIME we pushed the button!)

3) For the amount of money you pay to play this room, the least they can do is fix their clue button, make it a bit more enjoyable by making it fully team-doable, and… actually LOCK you in there. At one point, when our clue button again didn’t work (for the fourth and final time because I simply refused to keep asking for clues at that point), and I was already too frustrated with that issue to dial the front desk yet again(!), my wife actually went to the door of the room she was locked in and simply opened the door, to walk out and ask for a clue. Now, let me reiterate this point: she didn’t press a “let me out, I need to go use the restroom”-type button to get out, she literally just turned her door handle and walked out of the room. They didn’t even really lock that door, so what’s the point of “escaping,” when you can just walk right on out?!

4) I don’t know if it’s always like that, but on May 8th, the day we were there, the front desk staff was overwhelmed. How do I know this? After we escaped with only about five minutes left, the lady who came to greet us upon our escape actually told us that. She said, “oh, sorry we couldn’t get back to you at times, but we had other rooms playing.” Um, I’m not sure how this place works behind the scenes, but at most escape rooms, each room has their own game master. In no timed environment, should you ever have to wait minutes at a time, while they tend to other groups in nearby rooms. That makes no sense. Hire more people, if this is an issue!

So aside from those complaints — the impossible difficulty level, the malfunctioning clue button, the overpricing (and for what?), the fact that they don’t even lock you in and the front desk being too busy to assist when called upon — I will say this, escape rooms are always fun, even when they frustrate you this much, and that’s the only reason I still gave this place three stars. Also, though they were apparently overwhelmed, the front desk staff still treated us kindly whenever they did speak to us, so I’m not knocking them (just feel like they need some more people working there, that’s all).

All in all, we had an okay experience here, though I probably expected this one would be great before I ever got there, so that in and of itself was a bit of a letdown, especially since we were there celebrating a birthday.

And since it left that sour taste in our mouth, we actually just went back to Orlando on June 6th — but this time, we visited an escape room named “Escapology,” which is located in the neighboring strip plaza, to the east of this one, down that very same strip. Honestly, we liked that experience A LOT better than this one, since not only did they design their place better, but everything from the clue button to the game itself, also worked better.

Just mentioning that so that visitors will know they have options, but like I said before, no matter which you choose, escape rooms are always fun, even when they’re a bit frustrating, as this one was!‬

‪This was our first time doing a escape room. We absolutely loved it. The Sherlock Holmes study was so much fun and challenging. Our host was Luis and he was absolutely the best. He explained everything so well and answered all our questions. Everyone was very friendly and it was super clean. Would highly recommend The Escape Effect to anyone. We are definitely coming back.‬
