Overall a fun experience and certainly a good place for team events. Anyway, the largest room was not as good as the smaller one. The puzzles were interesting.

Fun with a group. We had a soccer team and they loved it!

Well, I was confused for about the first 40 minutes of our hour, but my group seemed to get it. Lots of fun. Would definitely do it again! The host was awesome, really helpful, and was just what we needed for our first time. We finished with 7 minutes left and only used two of the four hints. It felt like a solid accomplishment on the first go!

If I could give it 10 stars, I would! Can't wait to try the other rooms.

Me & my husband found our new favorite type of adventure. The thrill of racing against the clock with your close friends is great for team building. If you like to be challenged mentally, Brainy Actz is for you!

What an awesome experience! The production level was movie-like, and story line makes it so fun to play along. Every clue lead to a new cooler clue, I felt like Scooby-doo and the squad. If your in the area it’s a must, even if you aren’t make it out.

It was so fun and well-thought-out.

Really Fun! More challenging than I anticipated!

First time here n didn't know what to expect. You go into a room and are given one clue. You take that one clue find that and then it leads you to another clue and so on and so forth. You have an hour to complete the task of finding the gold sort of speak. We did it in about 45 minutes. We all work together well laughed a lot and had a good time.

My girlfriend and I decided to do an escape room for the first time. The scenario we decided to do was the lodge. Our host was Justin. He was kind and very helpful and explained everything to us. The situation/locked room experience was for 60 mins. It was a fun time with some thinking involved. We enjoyed our evening here and would definitely return again. I recommend. This is the 2nd escape room I've done in San Diego. Here I did the barbershop scenario w/ 3 other adults while my daughter and 12 of her friends attempted the circus themed room as part of her 13th birthday. We booked the rooms to run concurrently so one group didn't have to wait until the other group was finished. Both the adults and the kids had a good time.If your mind thinks a certain way, you may find this escape room either more challenging or highly frustrating which would ruin your experience. Read the spoiler alert (below) to see my explanation. My kid and her friends said that the room was large enough that all of them fit in, and there were side challenges unrelated to the overall escape progression that kept them amused.Overall a great place, props were good and not cheesey, there was enough space in the room for 4 adults to move about easily, puzzles were a challenge but not overly difficult. Amazingly the circus themed room was large enough that my kid and her friends fit in it. The adults finished about 75% of their escape room and the tweens finished theirs.* MINOR SPOILER ALERT: The puzzles were challenging but weren't set up in a linear fashion. That is, completing one task doesn't lead you to the next one specifically needed in the progression. You would find a task, complete it, and then stumble upon another puzzle that is actually 2 or 3 places further in the progression. You had to mentally note all of the clues found and then put them in order.

This place was truly amazing. Found this place on yelp and had great reviews. A few of my friends did the jungle based theme. Was a great time and really enjoyed it. The staff were excellent and the theme was well decorated.

extremely good experience, fun to go with friends that are good at puzzles..helps time fly by...staff was fun and helpful. it's a creative suggestion for a weekday night out. not extremely crowded either
17:08 18 Mar 18
This place was awesome. It was my boyfriend and I 4th escape room and this was by far my favorite one. They had some cool technology props within the rooms versus basic locks and boxes. This place also has other locations so they have to be doing something right. If you are looking for something fun check out Brainy Actz!

Very fun to go to as a team building event.
15:47 06 Mar 18
My group had a great time. It was perfect for a big group, plenty of different activities for everyone to try.
15:25 26 Feb 18
This place was super fun. A must do with family, friends or coworkers. This was a lot of fun! I had done otherescape rooms before, which were terrible... Either too small, sorry, or religious. This one is way better. The puzzles were tricky, the place was big, a great team building experience. The only down side was that we had to wait (15 people) a long time for the previous group to finish. They should end on time.

We came for a double date night and we had a good time! We bought a Groupon and I thought it was a good value for what we paid but I'm not sure I'd pay full price. We did the carnival game and thought it was creative and well done. We got to play some carnival games during the challenge as well which I thought was a nice touch.
01:25 24 Jan 18
Great team building. Had a group of 11 in the great carnival escape room It wasnt easy, it was definitely challenging but we all worked together and figured out within the allotted hour of time had a really fun time. Highly recommend it.
05:18 21 Jan 18
Great fun. The Barber Shop definitely challenges your thinking
06:29 16 Jan 18
Best escape room I've ever been to. I had an amazing time here. The puzzles we're very intuitive and there was absolutely logic and patterns which was different from other places I've been to which was more random. Our host was also extremely friendly and helpful. We were a group of 5 ranging from 12 to 24 years old and we all had fun, it was the perfect amount of difficulty. I would recommend this place to everyone! Absoulitly fantastic experience a little hardier then you think but service is amazing and the room is amazing should recoomend it to everyone
01:00 25 Dec 17
We had a great time! The hostess was friendly and funny. I would suggest for others to go!
03:53 24 Dec 17
They had two room barber shop and carnival. We did barber shop, and found that a little tough but interesting!. Would recommend
23:03 21 Dec 17
I wish I could remember the names of the people who helped me. I spoke with one person on the phone, when I booked and another helped us when we arrived. They were both friendly, very accommodating and provided excellent service. The Great Carnival Challenge was a blast, very well thought out and just challenging enough for our whole group, which included young teenagers and adults. Had a fantastic time with my family at Brainy Actz Escape Room! I have done both of there experiences and they are such a great time. Highly recommend this place for some family and friend fun.
17:13 08 Oct 17
Definitely a fun experience with a group of friends.

Awesome time at Brainy Actz! We participated in the Great Carnival Challenge Room. The clues were great and the decorations made me feel like I was in a real carnival. The technology that they have incorporated within this experience is quite impressive!
01:48 31 Jul 17
It was fun but we could not finish it in time. The kids all had a good time and we were able to get a record on the wall. I thought the room was a little difficult, but they don't want you to escape that easy I guess.
13:31 13 Jun 17
It was really fun! Hard.....but fun. We didn't get out but it is clever and well designed. I recommend giving it a try!
22:52 03 Jun 17
Great room escape! Definitely recommend it!
16:28 13 Apr 17
It was good! A clue was missing though.
