The Rooms


Super villains

Slip on your spandex and strap on your utility belt! The super villains have escaped the comics! Using your wit and wiles, you must break into the very heart of darkness; transport yourself into the comic lairs of four of the city's most notorious super villains, discover the clues they've left behind and save the city... if it's not too late.



The good Doctor has always been a fan of clever games, especially over a vintage bottle of Amarone and an exquisite Foie de Veau painstakingly crafted with... extra special ingredients. After foolishly accepting an invite to one of his prestigious dinner parties, you find yourself trapped inside his dining room. Your task: crack the fiendishly clever puzzle he left behind, before the dinner bell chimes.

Bon Appetit!


Secret In The Attic

Everyone loves your Grandmother, including you. Baking cookies, knitting sweaters, and everything else on the good Grandmother checklist. But you've always felt that there was something off about her, she always seemed to have lived a life more adventurous than the stories told of her youth. 

After she retired and moved away, you took it upon yourself to find out her secret. What was your sweet old Grandma hiding in the attic? The answer may change your life forever.

(This room is a wholesome experience appropriate for all ages and skill levels)

Reviews of Escape Room Arlington:

I’m always skeptical of a place that has full 5 stars and more than like 2 reviews. Well, I can honestly say this place did not disappoint and they fully deserve the 5 stars!! I have done many escape rooms before since so many started popping up but this one was the best. It was the most innovative, creative, smart, and unique. The decor was so well done and nothing was half made - very detail oriented. The puzzles were hard but not impossible and we all had so much fun figuring things out.

Our family travels to Arlington just to go to this Escape Room! It’s the best one I’ve ever been to, and I’ve done all of the rooms! The staff is super friendly, the rooms are beautifully built, the puzzles are innovative and fun to solve, and the location is convenient and near to restaurants for the post-Escape cocktail hour. I’ve done escape rooms all over the East Coast and this place is the best!

This was my favorite escape room by far. The staff is so friendly, and the waiting area is very cozy and inviting. The Secret in the Attic room is so fun and intriguing, they put a lot of thought and effort into making this room. I cannot wait to go back and try the other rooms because I have heard those are amazing as well!
