Our Escape Rooms

Our beautiful and spacious escape room games are built from scratch and were formed after months of research, development, and custom design. English is our second language, so we made sure our games are accessible for players with less-than-perfect English-language skills, such as tourists or first-generation immigrants. Also, forget about solving math problems. Escaping the room should be FUN and not a homework assignment!

Our Philadelphia escape room location was launched with an amazing adventure themed after escaping Thai Prison. Our second room, Escape Jack The Ripper, was opened a year after. Critical thinking, creativity, and a sense of adventure are all you need to challenge one of our thrilling escape the room games in Philly.

My group of three loved the Jack the Ripper room!

I’ve done some good escape rooms before, but this one was by far the creepiest! The ambiance was on point and definitely added another layer to the game. I’m totally recommending this place to friends and planning to come back to take a stab at Thai Prison!

Lauren Doberstein

We loved it so much, we did a second room an hour later!

One of the best surprises in Philadelphia. Couldn’t have asked for a better game master, Dill. Can’t say enough about how much they put into the details for these clues. Such an engaging and fun experience.

Zach Kemp

Definitely awesome and unique !

Such a great escape room. I’ve done a dozen of these now and this is definitely an awesome and unique one! So immersive. The puzzles are challenging but not impossible.

Deyna Hamilton

We’ve done close to 30 of these escape rooms!

Had a great time, we’ve done close to 30 of these escape rooms and have a high level of expectation. This one did not disappoint and the game master was great!

Jordan Roth

My bachelorette party was amazing.

We came here for my bachelorette party and it was amazing. The escape room was fun and had a great concept! Definitely will be coming back!

Felicia Campbell

This one was light years better than the first!

We did the Thai Prison escape. It was an excellent experience, the puzzle design was very fun! This one was light years better than the first!


Exuberant!!! My husband and I took our 12 and 10 year old kids. We had a blast. It is a great bonding fun activity.

Merari Ramos Muneca

Do yourself a favor and check it out!

Totally Awesome! We made it out the room with about a minute and a half left to spare! We paired with another group who were just as pumped and excited as our group!

Victoria Dassi

It is totally worth it!

This was my first Escape the Room experience and it could not have been better! I went with four people, and it was extremely fun. The rooms are difficult, logically stimulating, and exciting.

Caroline Oddo

It was the highlight of our trip to Philly!

We weren’t sure how it would be for our kids ages 6-13. It was truly a group effort and was very exciting! Undoubtedly all 5 of us agree it was the highlight of our trip to Philly!

Mary Beth Fitzgerald


This experience, from start to finish, was an absolute blast! Seriously, I have only wonderful things to say about MindEscape’s Thai Prison Room. YOU HAVE TO TRY IT (THAI IT?!?) RIGHT AWAY!

Christopher Rothschild

This game reflects a lot of thought, planning, care, and a real love of escape room!

Our MindEscape visit was superb, from start to finish. We had 10 teenagers and one teacher in our group, so we had the whole Thai prison to ourselves.The decor, scenery, and props are realistic and appealing — they really set the mood.

Sahar Oz

Blown away by how fun it was!

Game master was great! Very challenging even with 5 of us! Was able to make it out with a few minutes to spare! Loved the mix of physical puzzles and mental puzzles.

What is Escape Room

An escape room (or Escape the Room) is a physical adventure game in which players solve a series of puzzles using clues, hints, and strategy to complete the objectives at hand. Players are given a 60-minute limit to unveil the secret plot which is hidden in the game!

Think a video game or a movie where you are the main character!
Look at the questions below, for complete list of questions visit our FAQ page 

Where are we?

We are located in Queen Village Philadelphia on 4th st, between South and Lombard st. Close to I-95 and Center City Philly.

How many players?

Anywhere between 2-12 players, depends on the room. You may be grouped with others, but trust us – it’s more fun!

Private rooms can also be booked. Upon request, and with a group larger than 8 players, we can make sure no other group will book at the same time. Just give us a call. Click the menu on the top right for different types of private events.

Any age restrictions?

There is no age restriction really. However, if your entire group is under 16, you should include 2 adults.

How long?

Our escape games are designed to last 60 minutes. If you are a genre enthusiast, you may be able to get out faster.

Plan for a 90 minutes experience; between briefing, the game, and celebratory selfies. We ask you to arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment

Any Special Knowledge?

No Special knowledge required! If you have finished middle school, and watched a bunch of thriller Movies, you should be good to go!

What if there is an Emergency?

Our rooms are fully up to code and monitored the ENTIRE time both with video and audio.

In case of an emergency (fire, loss of power, etc…), all doors unlock automatically.
All doors are equipped with emergency release buttons as well.

Your safety is our top priority!

Our most important asset and most valued resource is our team. Your game masters were handpicked and rigorously trained to provide unmatched customer service and the absolute best game experience. They were trained to observe the gameplay at all times and identify where groups struggle.
