Here’s what some participants in our test groups had to say about the experience:
“As first-time participants in an escape room, we were impressed by how “Escape the Bookshop” brought our group together to solve the mystery. The thoughtfully crafted backstory, diverse and challenging puzzles, and cozy bookstore setting made for a truly unforgettable experience!”
“I had so much fun working with my team to solve the mystery that I forgot about the clock and we almost ran out of time!”
“I had done escape rooms before but this one was a truly exceptional experience – the setting at HouseMouse was perfect for our group of 6 to dive into the mystery, though we may have gotten distracted at times by items we wanted to purchase from the shop! The puzzle was super creative, fun, challenging and encouraged us to work together using our strengths. I would highly recommend this unique experience for a night out with friends in charming Takoma Park.
“This was the most fun and intellectually stimulating escape room I’ve ever done! Each and every puzzle was unique and nuanced and incorporated the amazing space brilliantly. Our group loved how the story incorporated literature and kept us thinking on our toes with each new clue we uncovered. Would highly recommend this experience!”
