Escape Room Rating: 85%
"Your team has $1 million. You'll need to work together to launch your startup before your money runs out!"
Startup Escape in San Francisco is an awesome collection of Silicon Valley inside jokes and lovable puzzles that fit naturally in the escape room world. A quality escape room regardless if you work for an actual start up or not, this room's style is divide and conquer. You'll need to work on each of 5 different categories— Programming, Design, Devops, Product, Marketing in order to succeed and 'launch your company!'. The problem-solving mixed with dexterity puzzles nature of this room is excellent for team building (specifically startups looking to get out of the office and bond). A far departure from the trite escape themes of serial killer, dungeon, etc, Startup Escape is as area-specific and unique a theme as you'll find in any escape room. While you might not get every single joke if you aren't immersed in the startup world, this escape room is nonetheless enjoyable and a worthy visit in San Francisco!
