Here's what our Satisfied Groups are saying

  • We love that No Escape Iowa offers an escape room that our family of 4 could enjoy together – kids are young (11 and 8) and they felt included in hunting for clues and piecing it all together. The Teachers Pet had a great setup and we’ll definitely be back to try out another room. Thanks for the great experience!

    Fun experience and reasonably priced. Our guide was friendly and informative and the room was very well done. We managed to solve the puzzle with a couple of hints.

  • Our family had a blast! 8 adults and one kiddo did the Ghostly Figures room. The clues aren’t linear so we all spread out and worked on clues. One of the most fun things we have done as a fam.

  • Having never had done an escape room before, we had no idea what to expect. The staff was so friendly and explained everything so well. It was so fun and can’t believe how well thought out the room was. We will be back for another room.
