Review of Escape U

Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: The north Florida natives-and ardent history buffs-at Escape U have put on a master class of mental challenges. Guests won't be wrestling with lofty philosophical ideals or the intricacies of physics, though. Instead, they'll have to bring together their investigative skills, logic muscles, and teamwork to solve a trio of St Augustine based escape rooms, each allowing just an hour to spare. In Escape U's third installment they present a masterclass of escape rooms. Not only is The Asylum the world’s first escape room specifically built to take advantage of inherent human logical weaknesses, but The Asylum is one of the most technologically advanced escape rooms ever built; this, combined with Escape U's talents for immersion, story telling, and puzzle design makes The Asylum one of the countries premier escape games.

I've never done anything like this before, but will go again for sure.
We were three people alone trying to "Save The Fleet" as a hurricane bore down on St. Augustine's Lighthouse; and it was up to us to get the power back on, re-start the lighthouse beacon, and sound the foghorn horn to "Save The Fleet". And we did it (with four minutes to spare)!!
Fun; team-building; little scary; a little pricey ($30 per person for one hour)
You want to have at least three people for any of their experiences here. I believe the upper limit is eight.

Sister n husbands birthda; wanted to do something fun, different, as a group. This covered it all. Me, husband, Sister and our Adult daughter were a team. Like the keystone cops. First time any of us had done this. We all agreed it was the BEST TIME EVER. Nothing to compare to but believe this Company has got to be one of the best. Alex, our Guide was adorable, knowledgeable and fun. She made it even better.
We will def. Do again. If looking for something, fun, different and with a small group, I highly recommend EscapeU.
Hard to explain it, gotta just do it.

We had a group of 5. Did the Fort. Sign in was quick and our orientation was helpful, listen to the details! The experience was a lot of fun for me as a newbie. Will definitely go again.

This was a fantastic multi-room escape room with a hint of the supernatural! It was not scary like a haunted house, but had an ominous atmosphere and theme that I enjoyed immensely! The puzzles were good and would be nearly impossible to solve without a few people in your group within the time limit. The staff were pleasant and professional. I would definitely do another escape room here!
