Great staff and they have really good rooms! I did the Cold War one and it was really fun. Best escape room experience I have ever been too
Had so much with the zombie room definitely will be back to try to escape
Awesome!!!!! Fun time with friend, nice staff! Good experience!
Did all 3 rooms and had a blast with our group! Good deal for a night out with anyone!!
So much fun!! We did the Mad Professor's Asylum. It was very challenging, but we made it out with one minute and twenty-two seconds to spare. Can't wait to go back!!
I thought that it was fun for the whole family! The games were challenging but extremely fun to play! I played all three rooms and had a blast the whole time! I recommend it for everyone!
Super fun and a great way to relax from daily stress without just sitting on your butt friendly staff, clean facilities, interesting themes!!!!!!!
Tried the cold war room with a group of 4. It was very challenging, but super fun! Both employees that we encountered were super friendly and genuinely seemed to enjoy their job. Our game master Lauren was a gem! She had a great upbeat pers…
Didn't know what I was getting myself into. I have never done anything like it. I had a great time and would love to come again. Definitely stop on by if you have the chance.
Our party ranged in age from 90-22 and each person had a great time! The staff was nice and helpful and the game was a unique experience that provided excellent family time. Although it was challenging it was doable and most importantly- it…
A ton of fun! Challenging puzzles but not overwhelming. We were in the Cold War room and made it to the last puzzle before time ran out. So close!
Freaking awesome entertainment. Coming back for another room!!
We did the asylum room...first time ever....very thankful for our two additional teammates that came in (veterans at this)...great fun...will definitely do this again
Such an amazing atmosphere. The nicest people work there and the rooms are fun and challenging. Definitely a must-do in the Tampa area!(Video) Can You Escape?, Tampa's #1 Rated Escape Rooms
Lots of fun, hard to figure out at first but good guidance.
This was so fun, I can't wait to go back. If you haven't been yet, check it out!
This was our second excape room here. This time we did the zombie apocalypse. Our group was made up of 8 people and we all fit comfortably in the rooms. This one was definitely more difficult than the asylum, but whenever we needed a slight…
We did the Cold War Crisis for my son's 16th birthday. So much fun! We are definitely coming here again.
Did every room with 2 other friends, all of them were great. Well organized, and clean, atleast until we disorganized it a bit. Excellent staff, polite and friendly!
Did the Cold War Crisis room Saturday and had a blast! The room looked amazing and the puzzles were awesome. Played other escape rooms but this one was by far the best. Very challenging and great for a small group (there were 7 of us) becau…
This was our second time visiting American Escape Room, and remaining consistent, it was a blast. You won't leave disappointed.
It gets the family together and we actually all work together to try to complete each task. Can’t wait to go back.
Definitely a challenge! Lots of frustrating fun for the whole family.
My mom got my sister and I this for Christmas. We had such a good time despite not quite making it out in time. We booked another reservation same day. We will be back to try again!
Loved it! I will definitely be back again to try another room.
Had a great time! Clues were difficult, but doable, and the hints were very helpful! We did Zombie Apocalypse (just two of us) and almost finished
So much fun and worth every penny!!! Great team building experience, and bonding time. Staff was amazing! 100% recommend!(Video) Building an Escape Room in Tampa Florida - Vlog 1
Great experience and awesome staff! A lot of fun to play and see if you can beat the time! Definitely going again soon!
Amazing experience ! Our whole group had an fantastic time. Our game master was outstanding. The enthusiasm she displayed made it quite evident she not only loves her job but wants everyone there to enjoy it as well. Great day from start to…
We have been to several rooms in the area and this was the most challenging. Lots of fun...looking forward to going back!
All three rooms very well put together!!! Had a great time!
This has to be the hardest and most difficult room we have done so far, it was definitely an adrenaline rush. Great decorations and puzzles in the Mad Professor, would return for the other rooms!
So much fun! Whole family (10, 17, 20 and adults) loved it.
I did the Mad Professor's Asylum and thought the puzzles were very abstract and very challenging.
We had a blast in the Cold War room! Didn't make it in time, but we still had so much fun our first time, we have to go back!
This place is amazing...my roommates have gone to, and made it out of 2/3 rooms, and I have gone with my family to the 3rd....we keep coming back
Family had a great time. Did the Zombie apocalypse room. You get 5 help clues to help you along. We got out with 2 seconds left on the clock.
Had a great time doing the Cold War Escape Room! Fun, thought provoking, and definitely something we would do again!
I had a great time with my mom today! Bought tickets to do it again! Better than other escape rooms I've been to. Very fun!
Me and my group of friends did the Mad Asylum and it was fantastic. We've been to a few other places and this one had one of the best flows. We even bought tickets to do another room!
Did the Mad Professor's Asylum and it was pretty good. I have done 3 so far and I was still well surprised by it! This is a good place and the staff are great!(Video) Tales of Tampa - Can You Escape
We reserved two rooms for my daughter's 13th birthday party and the kids had a blast! Thanks to the staff for giving the extra 5 minutes as a "birthday...
This is a great place for escape rooms. I have completed all three rooms now with the cold war room being my favorite and the mad professor being my least favorite. The zombie room has great puzzles but the props in the cold war room are fa…
Went in with a group of strangers in the cold war room... it was a challenge, and you must work together. Overall a great experience!!!! It was wonderful, and we succeeded!!!! I will definitely be returning to do another room!!!
This place was excellent. We celebrated my son's 15th Birthday and he enjoyed it. This activity is great for team work and/or family quality time.
Great fun. Great crew! Has a professional look and feel. The rooms are challenging and Game Masters are well trained.
My first visit to an escape room and it was amazing, our guide was very helpful, I cannot wait for our next visit...next time we will escape..lol
Came with 4 co-workers and tried the asylum. It was awesome! This is a great exercise in team building, or if you just want a fun night out I recommend you give it a try! I'm looking forward to trying another room!
Had a great time! Great staff. Can't wait to try out the other rooms
We had our 13-year-old daughter's birthday party here, and the kids all had a great time. The Cold War Crisis room was our favorite.
Took my 3 kids and was worried if they'd contribute or how they would work with strangers. They did great and keep asking to go back.
This was Very Very Fun, it has alot of team building involved. If you're down in Tampa come try it out, it's awesome. The staff is awesome and has lots of energy.
This would rank among my top escape room locations in the Tampa/St Pete area. We have only finished the Mad Professor themed room so far, and it was well done. The storefront and the room itself were well designed and decorated. Everything …
Excellent experience would recommend. I thought it was very creative and well maintained
Brought my nephews amd we had the TIME OF OUR LIFE!! SO MUCH FUN! Highly recommend(Video) An ETR EXCLUSIVE interview with IMAGINE ESCAPE ROOMS by BREAKOUT in Tampa, Florida!!
Had a great time. Family oriented that engaged everyone. Will be doing it again on the next level!
Great time. Great game master. Too bad we failed to defuse the bomb and destroyed the US.
Came with a group of 5 , did the Asylum room and it was really fun. Made me wonder how in the word does Sherlock Holmes do this kind of stuff But I would definitely recommend it.
Fantastic!! We are coming back foe sure to try the other rooms!
GREAT experience! They were able to accommodate 12 teenage girls (divided into 2 rooms) at a last minute request.
Had a great time in the zombie room was really challenging
Great place , GREAT EXPERIENCE the front desk lady working was very kind and helpful throughout the whole experience would go again ! highly recomemend
Had a lot of fun. Staff very nice and helpful.
We have celebrated 2 birthdays and have LOVED everything about it. Staff is wonderful and the game was so much fun but challenging.
I have done two rooms so far and they were both so much fun! The staff is fun and helpful and the game is definitely challenging. I only have one room left...
Had a great time and experience.We will be back!!!
Fun! This makes for a great family friendly night to think outside the box and work together! Staff is helpful and friendly.
Great puzzles in the escape rooms with cool themes and artwork to go along with them and a great staff. They also offer returning discounts that make it super cheap for groups!

Conclusion. Overall, it's perfectly fine to rise up to the challenge of an escape room as a duo. There are plenty of couples or two-people teams who successfully gather their wits together to enjoy the thrill of an escape room.
Escape games tend to have a 15-30% escape rate. They aren't good odds, and that's what I love about them.
Forms of Escape Rooms
There are two main forms that escape rooms take, and that's linear and non-linear.

- DESIGN YOUR PUZZLES AND GAMEFLOW.
To make an escape room at home, simply choose a collection of puzzles that are interesting to you, and the kids who will do the escape room, and then decide a way to lead one clue to the next. Typically you will need at least five puzzles to create a room.
