ABOUT US

THE PITTSBURGH ORIGIN STORY

Escape The Room’s four exclusive escape room experiences are filled with secrets and mystery, but we operate with full disclosure when it comes to informing you about who we are and what we do as the original escape room in Pittsburgh. Just don’t expect to have any information handed to you when it comes to making your escape.

WHERE IT ALL BEGAN

WHERE IT ALL BEGAN

Pittsburgh’s Escape The Room first offered participants a new social gaming opportunity in August 2015. One of our founding members is a Yinzer (an inhabitant or native of Pittsburgh), which made it clear we had to establish ourselves in the Steel City. Pittsburgh has also developed quite a reputation as a tech metropolis; add in fantastic restaurants and superior sports teams and you’ve got the perfect site for a puzzle room escape.

FUN FACTS

FUN FACTS

While Escape The Room has locations scattered around the U.S., including New YorkBostonSt. LouisDetroit and Dallas, many of our 300 employees regularly request to be transferred to our Pittsburgh location, so we know that we must be doing something right here. While our players are scrambling to escape, our employees are scrambling to be let in.

We’re also proud of the fact that we’ve had the honor of hosting players from the Pens, Pirates, and Steelers. That being said, only one of those players has succeeded in escaping. Think you and your friends can do better?

Some of the city’s most elite players, professionals, and performers have attempted to escape our rooms, but with a 20% success rate, the majority of them don’t make it out. Will you be one of the elite to successfully escape?

OUR ESCAPE ROOMS

OUR ESCAPE ROOMS

We have four unique escape roomsThe Agency, The Newsroom, The Dig, and The Apartment. Each room has its own setting, secrets, storyline, and escape route. For instance, you’ll take on the role of a secret agent on a classified mission in The Agency while the cameras roll behind locked doors in The Newsroom where you’ll act as a newscaster. If you don’t mind taking a trip into the womb of the earth, The Dig offers the perfect ambiance. See how quickly an ordinary residence can become a claustrophobic yet perfectly decorated domicile of doom in The Apartment.

Regardless of which room you choose, you’ll have 60 minutes to search for clues and make escape before time runs out. After you’ve successfully triumphed over one challenge, we hope to see you back for the mysteries that await in our other rooms.

PERFECT FOR GROUPS OF ALL TYPES

PERFECT FOR GROUPS
OF ALL TYPES

Not only are escape rooms a way to break out of the normal gaming experience while getting a cerebral workout, they’re also great experiences for all kinds of groups. Help your employees work on their team-building skills with a social opportunity they’ll never forget. Escape rooms are also ideal for birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, wedding parties, and anyone looking to host fun out-of-the-box events.

Apostrophe

“Trapped in your apartment with nothing to do? Might as well come to Escape the Room and try to get out of THEIR apartment! Had a really nice time, hints are available to keep you from being too stumped. Will definitely go again.”

Claude Mauk

“Good diversion on a Sunday afternoon. The room we solved was very interesting and challenging, but the answers to the puzzles were straightford once you got the hang of it. Very well done and entertaining.”

Christopher Gosnell

“I’ve done two of the rooms here and they were both great. We escaped one but not the other. The puzzles are thoughtful and they do a great job making sure there’s enough going on so that everyone can find something to explore. I would definitely recommend this location to friends.”
