We had a great time! Did the Jack the Ripper room for my daughters birthday. She and her friends had a blast.
Let me start off by saying we loved it so much, we did a second room an hour later. One of the best surprises in Philadelphia. Three of us decided to try it out and we ended up doing the Jack the Ripper room. Dill was our game master. "Sorry for the misspelling." Couldn't have asked for a better game master. He new when we were having trouble and when to ask if we needed a clue. Can't say enough about how much they put into the details for these clues. Such an engaging and fun experience. As mentioned before we tried the prison escape as well. If you think you are getting a similar experience.....you're not. The experience was completely different and just as fun. The hard part about writing a review about this experience, is not being able to explain the details and how much fun the clues are. Take care and we look forward to the expansion of your facility.read more
First time at an Escape Room and had a blast. Did the Jack the Ripper room with my son, nieces and nephew. We will definitely be coming back to try out another room. Our game master was awesome and had to help us a few times but we did manage to let ourselves out before time expired. Thanks so much!!!read more
We did Jack the Ripper room. It was very cool but there were a few flaws. We had trouble with a few parts because they weren't working and i didn't like that there wasn't a timer in the room so we could keep track of our time. The only other thing that bothered me about this room was the last step of it, if i went there to do this room with friends of my height none of us would be able to accomplish the last part because we wouldn't be able to see it. We didnt get out in time for the simple fact that i couldnt help my partner figure this out which is ashame. But the concept of the room and props were cool.read more
Jack The Ripper was the most clever and fun escape room I've done. Highly recommend this as a fun afternoon with 2 or more people.
It’s was amazing experience. You have to think out of the box
Highly recommended! Intelligent and surprising, suitable for beginners and experts players.

It was a wonderful experience! We did Thai Prison and completed it with 5 seconds to spare! Our leader told us that we were the first to complete the first part the way that we did �. It’s very immersive and really made us feel like we were stuck in Thai Prison and the clues we had to find were very interesting. I’m glad that Philly has so many of these to choose from. I wish we had the time to try Jack the Ripper when it was offered but we had plans. I highly recommend this place.read more
Wonderful experience. Booked last minute with a group of girlfriends. We completed the moderate escape room. Great time!!!
Amazing! Ive done 12+ rooms, nyc, florida and now philly and this place is top notch! #jacktheripper #mindescape
Did Jack the Ripper, it was harder than I expected. And really confusing. I didn’t know which way to turn bc of other ppl in the room finding and moving things. But it was was a fun experience.read more
Everyone here was amazing! We had so much and I’m glad we got to partner up with the people who were there. We will definitely come back. I’m so proud of us for beating the Jack the Ripper for our first escape room � Also, thanks again Alexis!!!!! ����read more
Went there yesterday and never done a escape room with me gf and her friend. We did the Jack the ripper room and it was a great time. Alexis our host did an excellent job. Would recommend to anyone.read more
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!read more
Went here last night with a group of 11. Our host was Alexis and she was great. Only two in the group had done a mind escape before, so it was a new adventure for most. We did the Thai prison and were literally put in handcuffs and two cells and had to start there. It was a blast, you have to think outside the box and we eventually made it out in 46 minutes with a few helpful hints from Alexis along the way. We will be booking Jack the Ripper next!!read more
NICEST. PEOPLE. EVER. Had to cancel due to weather and it was easy peasey. We can't wait to rebook!!!!
The group I came with included four escape room enthusiasts. We were all very impressed with both rooms (Thai Prison and Jack the Ripper). The puzzles were great, and they included some ideas that we’ve never seen before in other rooms. The rooms and facilities were clean, too. Our game masters were friendly, knowledgeable, and nice. We really enjoyed these experiences and would recommend to anyone - newbies or experienced people! Looking forward to Mindescape opening another new room!read more
They did a wonderful job at this place!!! We did the Thai Prison escape and everything was very well decorated and they were clearly very thoughtful in their planning. Recommend this to everyone and will definitely try the Jack the Ripper room when we are back in the area!read more
9 seconds left on the clock!! FREEDOM!! We had a blast and whole family 3 kids (10,9 and 5) contributed to get out. Service, monitoring and attention like no other.A solo 9 segundos de no librarla. Nos la pasamos de lujos, sumamente retador y mis hijos(10,9 y 5) ayudaron todo el tiempo. El servicio, monitoreo y atencion de primer nivel. Almatente recomendable si estan en Philly.GRACIAS MindEscape!!read more

I see my wife wrote a review but I would just like to add to it. This was everyone in our groups first Escape Room and I gotta say they set the bar high. Our game master Isabella was very friendly and professional. The detail and theme was well thought of and put together. I would highly recommend this to anybody looking for a fun experience whether you are a veteran to Escape Rooms or a first timer. Take my word on this!! We will ABSOLUTELY be back when they get the Jack the Ripper theme up and running!!read more
Came to MindScape for my 30th Birthday with friends and it was awesome!! Our host was great, professional and friendly!! This was everyone in our groups first escape room and we all enjoyed it very much. Although we needed to utilize the hints, we did finish with 1 minutes and 50 seconds to spare!!! We defiantly plan to come back when the new room is open and highly recommend MindScape!! Thank you for such a great experience!!read more
Really was a lot of fun for me and my boys!!! Plan to go back to try other rooms with a larger group. We did escape from Thai prison room. Our game master was very nice and made the experience all the better. Definitely recommend.read more
This place was awesome! Loved the complexity of the room and the different challenges we faced. The Game Master helped make the experience even better. If you are looking for a great experience, you've found it.read more
Game master was great! Very challenging even with 5 of us! Was able to make it out with a few minutes to spare! Hints are not needed but are available if you wish to take them! V was a great host! Loved the mix of physical puzzles and mental puzzles. This was our second escape room and we were blown away by how fun it was!read more
Exuberant!!! My husban and I took our 12 and 10 year old kids. We had a blast. It is a great bonding fun activity. The staff is professional and kind. The place is organize, clean and we'll set up.read more

Staff was welcoming and friendly, and the escape room experience was engaging, fun, and challenging! It was my first time doing this, and loved it!
This was my first escape room experience and although the group of friends I came with was joined by another, it was a lot of fun. Definitely a lot of teamwork has to go into it but nothing was mind-bogglingly difficult. If they saw that you were struggling too much at any part they give you hints to keep the flow rolling. Also, you can tell they made suuper good use of the environmental surrounding when making the room.read more
Great time! Every staff member was friendly and super helpful! Highly recommend this!
What a time at Mind Escape in Philly. Our group was in town at Philly October 28th from New Jersey and stumbled upon this awesome spot. We were undecided if we should try it and a random stranger passed by and said, "It's really great." So we stepped in and was greeted by V which made us feel warm and relaxed as for many of us this would be our first experience in the Escape room world. V was awesome and the perfect hostess as she went from intructor to Bangkok police officer. The event was set at a time limit of 60 minutes with a full group of 12 people (exception made as the limit was 11). We had our group of 8 and was paired with a 2nd group of four more people. Which made things really intense as we had to work together and Escape this Bangkok prison cell. But little did we know that was just the beginning of our night of Escape....read more

Had a great time!!! Very exciting and would definitely go again and recommend everyone to go!
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. Booking the room online was easy, and our game master, Isabella, was friendly, enthusiastic, and got our teens and teacher in game mode right from the start.The Thai prison decor, scenery, and props are realistic and appealing — they really set the mood. This game reflects a lot of thought, planning, care, and a real love of escape room gaming by the MindEscape staff. It’s sufficiently challenging without being frustrating. The suspense and excitement of solving individual challenges that build up to the great escape are exhilarating!Only two of us — one student and the teacher — had ever done an escape room adventure before (at other venues), so we had an eager group that got more and more into the experience with every minute. We made it out with 4 minutes to spare and will be back soon for “Jack The Ripper”!read more
Amazing time!! Very well done- great puzzles, spectacular location just steps from South Street!!! Can't wait to go back!!!

It was SO MUCH better than I imagined! Great time, great memories, great fun!!!!!! Everyone should do it at least once!!!!!!

This was my 3rd and favorite escape room! The puzzles were so hands on and definitely involved teamwork. My heart was racing and I loved how involved I felt. DEFINITELY RECOMMEND ♡read more
Came here as a surprise from my husband and I love it.
Brenda M Amer
Loved it!! Very hands on. Tried it with some friends for the first time and enjoyed every second of it.. highly recommend it
Great experience! Our team made it out in 48 mins and 16sec.. can't wait to do all the other escape rooms in philly!!!
Joel Antonio Cuello
SO much fun!!! My friends I had a blast! I highly recommend going!
Went there with my family and friends and absolutely loved it! The escape was so creative and the environment really had you completely abandoning disbelief. Its actually pretty challenging and i recommend for anyone who wants to try something new and have loads of fun in the process!read more
I had such a blast! This was my first escape room and it could not have gone any better. There were puzzles for everyone in my group. A few were the wild "I have to sift through everything now!" minds whereas I was more word and "sit back and observe" type of mind. Definitely something for everyone!! I just wish there was a playback room so I could watch my group figure things out. I'm sure that was definitely a good laugh!read more
Mary Frances Cavallaro
This is by far the best escape room I've been too. I promise you won't be disappointed. Not to mention the how accommodating the host/owner was. All aces in my book. I highly recommend this escape room.read more
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. Definitely looking forward to their Jack the Ripper room.read more
Totally Awesome! We made it out the room with about a minute and half left to spare! We paired with another group who were just as pumped and excited as our group! Do yourself a favor and check it out! Cant wait for the other room to be ready!read more
We came here for my bachelorette party and it was amazing. The escape room itself was fun and had a great concept, but the employees are even better! Definitely will be coming back when their new room is done!�read more
I had previously done 13 rooms and had escaped 4 - my escape partner had done 6 and escaped 3 so it is fair to say we are experienced. Sadly we were not able to make it out of this one (actually made it about 50%), heavily due to it being the 2 of us and we knew what we were in for so this does not impact the review in any way. ...It was heavily suggested by the owners themselves to visit their place because of the approach they took to the entertainment genre, and really ensured that it would be one of if not the best ER I've done. It is a very bold statement to make and if you take that much pride in your product and the customer understands why you do what you do, then it is worth giving a shot.I had the chance to speak with one of the owners before the game and they reiterated that - most of the experience being physical challenges, immersive environments, and the least amount of physical locks as possible, not to mention no word puzzles! Needless to say, they were right and the way that they set up the room was actually quite brilliantly done.Thai Prison is the 2nd prison-themed ER I've done, both of which involve you starting off in handcuffs. This level of immersion is key (no pun intended) to a great design and you really did feel like you were locked in your own prison cell - fit with the bare essentials which becoming important in the game. The room itself for the most part was linear which is typically not the best for large groups but there is much to do that teamwork regardless of size is ideal.As far as puzzles, it was a very physical experience at least in the beginning. You will have to take things apart, put things together, and use your cells that contain important items to get out. One part I think could've used more puzzles but for the amount of them that you have to work through, it really just serves as a halfway point. The end portion we were not able to make it to, but from what the owner showed us, you will have to rummage through items very carefully and come across a few illusions!Overall, I think MindEscape did a good job for its first room. I really cannot think of any issues or negative parts except for having something more in one part but it isn't worth to knock off one star. They are very proud of what they offer and I think that enthusiasm for the genre and the originality of the concept is important for a rewarding experience. I definitely look forward to returning for their Jack the Ripper room and who knows? I may be your game master 😉read more
we did this fun Escape room..it was well planned and have kept us challenged and entertained at the same time.. also the host was very Friendly

We had a blast escaping the Thai prison; can't wait to come back when the Jack The Ripper room is ready!!
The people were so nice! The room was challenging and well designed. We loved every minute!!!
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. We had an absolute blast and escaped the room with two seconds to spare!!! Definitely come and check this place out, it is totally worth it.read more
Excellent Adventure, a class act event. Loved it....
MindEscape is the real deal! Yesterday was my first escape room experience - and I'm happy to say that I'd like to do more in the future! If you live in Philly - you need to stop by with a group of your friends one day. You won't be disappointed!read more
WOW! Not knowing what to expect, I was blown away by this escape room. Conveniently located just off of South Street. This was challenging and a lot of fun. We finished with ONE SECOND to spare. Would highly recommend to groups of friends, families and co-workers! A newer spot you MUST check out! Looking forward to new rooms!read more
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! We didn't get out (and having done a few escape rooms around Philly, I can be a pretty sore loser when I don't cross the finish line), but that didn't matter at all in this case. Our game-master (and arresting officer) Vee explained that we were so close to solving the final puzzle. More importantly, she was there for us with useful clues every time we got stuck, and the way she delivered our clues fit the theme perfectly. All of the puzzles were cleverly done. Some were very intuitive, and others required more creative outside-the-box thinking, but in the end they all made perfect sense and each felt so original against the previous puzzles we'd done. If you want an hour filled with thrills and chills, plus a lot of laughs along the way, this is the place for you. Book your spot ASAP!!!read more
We had a great time. We made it out and it was so much fun! Definitely have to work together. Would totally do it again!
Tina Burdo Medaglia
Definitely the best escape room I have done! Well thought out and the theme is amazing. I will be back when there is a new theme to escape! I recommend this to friends up for a great time!read more
Amazing experience! One of the best rooms we've ever been in.
Walked by with my girlfriend, stopped in and gave it a try. We ALMOST finished it (with some hints) but it was so good! After the hour passed, we were shown what we missed and were able to finish the game. Great experience and well worth the price! Will be returning for the Jack the Ripper room!read more

We happened upon this treasure while sightseeing on South Street. We didn't know what to expect and weren't sure how it would be for our kids ages 6-13. From the time we walked in -it was a great experience. The manager went above and beyond to welcome us and create an experience appropriate for our family! We did Thailand. My husband and oldest son were a bit skeptical up until the time we entered the room. From that moment we all jumped into this adventure and worked furiously toward our goal - to escape! 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!read more

Had a blast escaping with colleagues this evening. Great team building fun, highly recommended, Gil was a great warden.
An excellent time! If you're on the fence about doing an escape room, these guys are a great introduction. Very well crafted escape room. Clues were very well hidden, and hard to find. Really fun to put the pieces together. Plot and environment also stir up the tension! Highly Recommended!read more
