We had the most amazing experience at Brainy Actz. I purchased a 1 hour nerf war package and took my son to celebrate his birthday with some friends. Christian was our host and really made the adventure over the top for these boys (aged 9 and under). He was so professional and also very engaging with the kids, keeping them excited and pumped up during the round and quick to help them with any gun jams. I highly recommend a visit here for the kiddos and we are definitely excited to go back for a parents only date to check out the escape rooms. Thanks again to Christian for making it really fun time for the kids.

I called and reserved what I thought was a room at the Reno location. Turns out when I called I was connected to a call center who used my phone number (Area code of 661) to book my room in Bakersfield, CA more than 8 hours away. Panic! This was supposed to be my 3 kids(ages 15, 9 & 8) first experience in an escape room. I explained my situation to the staff and Talon McPhail who happened to be on that day walked us back to their activities room and allowed me and the kids to play a Nerf War for about 30 minutes in a very well designed facility while they instantly went to work setting up a room for us on short notice. Now, by the time we were put into our room about 40-45 minutes had passed but we didn't mind a bit. We had fun. The staff's response to our plight was exemplary and the room we were finally allowed into was done so well!!! The kids enjoyed hunting for the elusive bigfoot/yeti and loved solving every clue! Great job guys. Now as for Brainyactz I have one critique....when you patch us through to a call center booking...ask what location we call about, don't assume based on our area code. Thanks again, so much!!!

We had fun but it was hard in the dim light to do combo locks, some of the names are warn out do hard to see and one of the wooden plaque dates are chipped out making it hard to see. Also you need to have help cause its not obvious what to do. But we had fun and would do again.

We went on The Legacy challenge this time. John (our instructor/guide) did an awesome job at getting us pumped for the escape room. We finished it with 1 minute remaining. Whew. Definitely a thrill specially getting all the pieces together and figuring out the clues...even more so when struggling to do so. I would highly recommend anyone and everyone to go. Family fun (we took our kids). Next on the list is axe throwing.

03:36 17 Sep 19

I have been 2 of the 3 escape rooms at Brainyactz. Each of them were challenging and engaging. This was my first time at an escape room and the experience that I received was exactly what I was looking for. John was our host and he was very fun and professional. I highly recommend booking an escape room experience with him!

We had a blast with their escape rooms. They were well thought out, and had clever clues that challenged us. John was our amazing host, and he was very pleasant and attentive to or group. He was happy to answer our questions and encouraged us to work as a team. We would definitely recommend Brainyactz to a friend! Great for friends, families, and work parties.

My wife and I wanted to do something fun and inexpensive for our anniversary. Movies are fine, but we dont get a chance to interact during the film, and once we get home its back in the routine of parenting and home life. Enter Succulent Plant Workshop. I forget the name of the instructor but she was absolutely awesome. She kept us entertained/engaged and didnt talk down to anyone. The room was not too serious while still focused on the task of learning about/building our succulent habitat. We had multiple groups there (another couple, a group that had family from Washington visiting, and a group that had people from Hawaii). All in all it was pretty diverse and everyone appeared to have a good time. The event took a little over an hour (not quite and hour and a half but we also had 12 total people which I think helped speed the process). We were allowed 2 plants (one of mine split in half when I was removing dirt from the roots), and if you want to buy more we could! At the end of the event we all left with our creations, and truth be told I am a bit proud of mine. We definitely plan on going back. Both for some of the nerf events with our kids as well as keeping an eye on the other events that we can do as a couple (looking at you wine bottle thingy).

Had a great time w arrow tag. Note: need different flooring though. The flooring tore us up. Like sliding across sandpaper. If you go to arrow tag, take my advice: wear jeans, sweats, something to cover the knees.

Who knew shooting your kids would be so much fun?The nurf guns were great fun but they did jamb frequently. Hazards of modern warfare. The bow and arrows would have been fun except my wife hit me in the head in the first minute and I was out. It was the sinister laugh....

Fun for the family, but probably better for older children (13 +). Just because they are challenging. Puzzles didn't exactly match the theme of the room, but still fun.

I just finished my second room here. Payton was an awesome game master!! She made the experience twice as fun! The room was challenging enough to be fun but not stressful. Great clues, great story.

Just completed the Master Room with a large group at Brainy Actz. We had a pretty good time as a group. The staff was helpful. However, cannot give it five stars because one important prop was missing from the room as it was either not put back or not setup correctly. Other than that still fun. We used the groupon and that definitely made the price more reasonable.

06:08 16 Feb 19
I have been to Brainy Actz twice and I plan to go back. My first trip was to do an escape room with my family. The escape room was a fun experience. All the parts seemed to work as they were designed. My son had his birthday party at Brainy Actz as well. He and 9 friends did the Nerf war. They were hard to get a hold of on the phone to get all of this set up, but once I did reach them, they had great customer service and even gave us a discount on the party room. The Nerf war was fun but the teens experienced a lot of guns jamming or not working properly. The effects during the game are really cool and definitely add to the experience.

My friends and I frequent a lot of escape rooms. We did The Legacy room, hosted by Taylor and assisted by a mystery guy that we didn't catch his name. They were both enthusiastic and quick to help whenever we needed a clue. I found the puzzles to be fairly few, but a bit more difficult. Which I found interesting. While we didn't escape The Legacy within the required time, because they had no one follow us, they allowed us to stay and finish out the game anyway which was entirely cool of them to do and not typical. Game and service A++!

I'm embarassed to say that we asked more than once for a clue haha. It was a great experience overall!

I attended a corporate event for IGT here recently and had such a great experience. I did the Succulent Workshop as well as the Arrow Tag. Jasmine, the succulent instructor, was super informative and answered all my succulent care instructions. I cannot remember the Arrow Tag instructors name, but he kept us pumped in the game and was very fun. I didn't know what to expect, but it was a blast. If you're looking for a place for a corporate event or team building, I highly recommend Brainy Actz.

My husband and I booked a birthday party there for our daughters turning 19, and 15. Kevin and his staff were such a great help planning and setting up the party room. The party room was so convenient. It was clean and plenty big for all our guests. We did Secrets of the Master, and everyone had a blast, it was a great bonding experience. Nerf wars was great fun too. My whole family and all our friends had the best time. I highly recommend this place for a party for any age.

We had a birthday party there for both of our daughters. Kevin was our host, and he was awesome. We did Secrets of the Master, and finished with about 12 minutes left. After the escape we did nerf tag where you can use a bow and arrow, or nerf gun and hide behind moveable barriers. It was such a great time for everyone who came, and for all ages. I definitely recomend this place for a birthday, or just a place to go and have fun. Kevin and his staff are very helpful, and they love thier job. Awesome family fun.

We had my daughters 11th birthday here last night and they were fantastic! Kevin was awesome with the kids and really took care of their questions and concerns as it was most of their first times in an escape room and a few of the kiddos were a little nervous. The party room gave a great location for the parents to wait, open presents and do birthday cake! The only thing I wish was slightly different was that you booked directly with the staff in Reno. I booked with someone named Josh in California and I was a little concerned that what I had discussed (party planning stuff) would be communicated to the Reno staff. It ended up working out fine and Kevin was great.

We did secrets of the master. It was a fun experience for my whole family. We went about a min over the 1 hour time limit and had like 6 clues but overall it was fun. A few of the clues we did not need but we asked because we did not notice anything after we did the next step. I can not give it away but it was awesome. The story line was cool. I wish you the best of luck at this room. We had a blast.
