Did “The Legacy” escape room with my husband. Super fun and interactive. Great date night idea. The staff was friendly and helpful, too. Will definitely come back to do the other escape room. We went on a Thursday night and it was nice and quiet for us.

Rage room was fun as hell. Bring your own stuff bc they don’t have a ton but man was that a release from all the pent up emotions of day to day life. Don’t forget to scream! So relieving.

This place was a lot of fun. I thought we were going to get only one canvas and it turned out it was one per person. My kids had fun throwing paint and painting the walls.

Wonderful experience being able to paint with my partner. Staff are courteous and friendly as we signed waivers and then lead to our splatter paint room. We were able to go chaotic with painting our paintings with the included canvas and splatter the walls.A great date idea for 2 people!

The jungle escape room was very entertaining! There were puzzles that could be a little more realistic and a little more developed instead of relying on the “unlock the box” approach to everything, but overall it was entertaining and we made it out!

Girlfriend said she wanted to surprise me. When we got there and were walked back to the paint room I was very surprised. Took awhile for the creative juices to start flowing but eventually we were painting the walls, our canvases and each other. Very fun

If you do the rage room, dress and prepare for it as a workout. Throwing glass bottles is an experience. Exercise those demons.

Such a fun experience. We were first timers and they were so helpful. They gave us little hints to help us find clues which was nice because we were able to escape in enough time. At the end of the game he gave us his card with a discount for the next game whenever we wanted to return.

I completed the Lost Point Lodge escape room. It was a ton of fun!! It was high tech and a good challenge. The room itself was really pretty and it was a fully immersive experience. The staff was friendly and welcoming!

Note that there is no sign at all on the outside making it difficult to locate. It's in a pretty small space so even from the parking lot it's difficult to see through the windows and spot the brainy actz logo on the inside wall. We did the lodge, which is supposed to be their hardest rated room and overall had a fun time but there is room for improvement: Quite a few of the clues were worn out making them difficult to read, some of the clues lead to playing recordings and the volume was so low I personally could not make out what was being said, and they use a directional lock that is highly finicky. We do escape rooms to solve a puzzle; be mentally stimulated. Eye sight (i.e seeing faded blacklight marker), hearing, and ability to unlock a known problematic lock should not be part of the challenges. For the lock specifically, my group spent 10 minutes on it before finally calling for help only to find out we'd been putting in the correct code the whole time but out of our group of 6 (inputting the code exactly as instructed) none of us could get it open. The challenge there was figuring out the code, the lock itself was just aggravation. All of these things are easily fixable though, so hopefully they do. Our host was awesome and energetic, the room design was cool. Those few things aside, I'd go back again and check out a new room.

Amazing experience for a Saturday night. We are avid escape room breakers. 4 of us took on the challenge of the Jungle room. Holly our host was welcoming, energetic, and just friendly from the start. She made that boring lecture that is normally given in the beginning fun. Her hints were just enough not to give us the answer. The room was challenging, had interesting puzzles, and was we'll put together. We broke out with 2 hints. We will definitely be back to look for Bigfoot or smash some things.

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!

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.

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.
A lot of fun
