My group and I took on Utopia and had a wonderful time. The room itself provided a nice blend of engagement and an unique quality that provided a new challenge relative to other escape rooms in the metro. The staff was equally as welcoming, allowing us to solve everything on our own but were open to be of assistance if needed. They deserve all the praise and recommendations
05:03 23 Nov 23
Our first escape room - our family had so much fun! Really good concept, great details in the room.
20:31 18 Nov 23
01:04 18 Nov 23
11:31 14 Nov 23
These rooms are amazingly designed and we absolutely love them. We've done a lot of escape rooms and can honestly say these are among the best We've done in the Twin Cities.
03:03 08 Nov 23
Great rooms! Very clever. We did Utopia, and it is fantastic - bring a good team!
03:36 06 Nov 23
The staff here is super awesome and the room we played was well built and had some delightfully tricky puzzles. Definitely check them out!
15:10 31 Oct 23
1st escape room experience for me but in a group with some veteran escapers. All agreed that it was a fun and memorable experience. The Abandoned Carnival theme was funny and clever and engaging and our host was perfect.Highly recommend and I’ll be going back!
14:19 14 Oct 23
This spot was amazing! We had so much fun! The host was so friendly and helpful. He had a big personality! We did the abandoned carnival one of the better rooms we have experienced. We are an avid escape room family in the metro area. We highly recommend this one!
19:22 09 Oct 23
Fantastic escape room. well worth the price. I would come back to this one again.
16:14 09 Oct 23
Four of my friends and I took on the Utopia escape room in October 2023.I give the overall experience a solid A. We didn't do especially well, but, in retrospect, the puzzles were fair and soluble with a bit more insight.There was only one puzzle that required significant dexterous manipulation, and we missed out on actually having to complete it. That's our fault, though, and I think it would have very enjoyable.
00:57 09 Oct 23
First time experience! Was a fun time. Needed a few hints to get us going and they were right on it in giving us clues. We did escape!
21:43 01 Oct 23
Utopía is the best puzzle room experience I've ever had. Do not miss this one!
23:43 24 Sep 23
We did two in one day and they were, by far, the most interactive and fun escape rooms I’ve ever done. The clues were challenging, but fun. The game hosts were incredible and immersive. I would highly recommend this place!
11:41 20 Sep 23
Place was awesome. I would recommend it to anybody. And I will be going back again soon. Thanks
12:00 10 Sep 23
Perfect challenge for my son and his friends!
02:28 10 Sep 23
Great experience at the abandoned carnival. Loved our host. Will definitely be back! Thanks!
16:05 07 Sep 23
I played the carnival escape room and it was a truly wonderful experience. I went with two friends who both worked at escape rooms and are trying to go to every escape room in Minnesota and they said that this and Utopia were some of the best escape rooms they’ve been to, i dont have too much to compare it to since I’ve only done 3 escape rooms but we had an absolute blast! The storytelling was absolutely wonderfully done and the puzzles were wonderfully designed. Our instructor for the evening was an absolute delight, I am terrible with names but we had a wonderful chat afterwards about his experience running escape rooms and about mechanisms we were curious about in the room. It was such fun! Highly reccomend this wonderful escape room.
19:15 03 Sep 23
Highly recommend this escape room! The set up was great and the staff was wonderful! We did the cursed carnival. There were some scary elements, so younger children may get scared.
22:33 19 Aug 23
Best incineration of my life, I only almost cried once.
06:46 13 Aug 23
19:25 12 Aug 23
SO FUN. We were very close to completing our room, which was rated a 9/10 difficulty and we're total amateurs lol
14:03 09 Aug 23
We did Impossible Mission, it was a lot of fun. The puzzles were clever and interesting. Definitely my favorite among all the different escape room venues I've tried.
20:36 06 Aug 23
We saved the world with 1:28 to spare with a few hints from Alex along the way when we got really stuck. I took my two granddaughters, ages 10 and 12 and we enjoyed it very much. It was a clever puzzle. We will be back!
20:19 06 Aug 23
Very fun family time. 3 generations went and all had a great time. Rachel was great to work with.
13:12 05 Aug 23
This was my first time doing an escape room. It was delightful, staff was friendly, helpful, and funny. We ran the impossible mission. I highly recommend.
11:52 31 Jul 23
We have completed at least 20 puzzle rooms and this was one of our family's favorites! The carnival room had some very unique aspects to it including several that really startled my teen age son (which was awesome). The room was just right in terms of difficulty, we got through it with a couple minutes to spare without hints but it was tight (and again, we've done a lot of these before). Overall we would highly recommend and actually prepaid to come back to do the Impossible room next.
18:57 26 Jul 23
Had a great time at Lock & Key Escape Rooms. Challenging and helpful when necessary. Alex was very friendly and made our day very fun.
18:33 24 Jul 23
Extremely welcoming and fun staff! The room was very well done and exactly what we were looking for! We will definitely be returning and enjoyed our time here!
14:17 24 Jul 23
We've been to St. Cloud Escape rooms twice and both times were great! We had a blast and the rooms were awesome!
01:30 23 Jul 23
10/10 would recommend Lock and Key’s Utopia room at their Edina, MN location for a bigger party seeking a challenge. We had 8 players in the room with mixed puzzle game experiences. Even for escape room enthusiasts, this was a new experience. I have been to 8 different US escape rooms, and this was one of the most unique rooms I’ve been in. Our gamemaster noted that the room was award-winning and a 9/10 difficulty level.
19:06 16 Jul 23
We've done all three escape rooms (Mission Impossible, Utopia, and Haunted Carnival) and they were all super fun and clever. These do not disappoint! Themes are fun and great games/puzzles inside. Would highly recommend.
23:07 15 Jul 23
We had a great time in the cursed carnival- we were joined friends from out of town. We all laughed, puzzled, and solved in just enough time. Would go again.
21:26 15 Jul 23
14:38 13 Jul 23
This is a great experience and well worth the money. The interaction from staff while in the room is a twist I enjoyed.
15:14 10 Jul 23
It was a great time! The lady helping us was very kind and is truly is the reason it was a 5/5 😁 this is was at the St. Cloud location
02:40 10 Jul 23
We’ve played two rooms here and loved each of them! The Carnival was so fun, with novel games and a great storyline. Everyone we have interacted with has been really great as well. We highly recommend Lock and Key!!!
23:17 07 Jul 23
My friends and I did the Abandoned Carnival room today and it was SO much fun! We've done a lot of escape rooms, and this was was definitely one of the best in the Twin Cities! Some unique puzzles definitely make winning a little more difficult, but totally possible. Alex was our gamemaster and he was so much fun!
22:24 26 Jun 23
My spouse and I had a blast playing Impossible Mission! This was my 50th escape room and, despite all of that experience, I still felt sufficiently challenged and had an excellent time! The theming for the room was well done and made me miss the good old days of VHS rentals at Blockbuster and Hollywood Video.I have two minor complaints (which obviously didn't have an impact on my star rating here):1) My spouse and I are larger than average and not athletes at all. There is one challenge in this room that would be much better suited to skinnier and more agile individuals. Despite understanding exactly what we were supposed to do and making many attempts, we could not succeed and our game master had to come into the room to bypass the system. That made me feel a bit embarrassed and, for a few minutes, I stopped having fun. If you're a larger person or not that agile, I'd recommend telling your game master up front that you'd like them to let you through the physical part. Or even better, Lock and Key could find a way to fix this part of the experience so that the game master could bypass the system remotely or...?2) There was a single white board stuck to a wall. The room is expansive, and we would have had a better time with either a mobile white board or multiple white boards. You are allowed to use your phone, so that's what I did to take some notes, but it'd just be a better experience if we could take notes in multiple places throughout the room.Those two things aside, we had a great time and will definitely be back for both Utopia (which we actually already played at its old location in 2019) and Abandoned Carnival.In summary, if you're debating between a night in streaming Netflix and spending some time escaping a video rental store at Impossible Mission, you should definitely opt for the latter. You'll have a whole lot more fun, guaranteed!
22:29 11 Jun 23
What an AMAZING time! Ethan was absolutely wonderful - the rooms were a huge hit! We played one room, enjoyed it so much - we played another! So much fun!
22:25 11 Jun 23
07:02 10 Jun 23
The Utopia escape room was great and the guy running it was super nice and showed us the last couple of puzzles that we couldn't solve (that we had figured out we just ran out of time). We had a great time!
15:37 26 May 23
This was our first time at any escape room and we had a blast. The host was super friendly and helpful and made it an awesome experience for us! 🥰
15:46 21 May 23
My daughter celebrated her birthday with friends at Lock and Key Southdale and had an absolute blast! The staff was wonderful- very helpful and nice and provided just the right amount of clues when needed to make it a fun experience for teen girls! Highly recommend. We will be back.
22:18 19 May 23
Had a fantastic time escaping Utopia! Awesome room, some really unique puzzles as well! Remember, your government loves you.
03:02 13 May 23
A bunch of 10 year old girls had a great time!
22:03 01 May 23
I tried it with my wife, it was one of the most fun things we have ever done on a date.
01:43 30 Apr 23
Our group had so much fun doing the Abandoned Carnival Room! We found it challenging, but not so difficult it’s impossible! We will be back to try the rest of the rooms here!
22:48 29 Apr 23
Had a great time with my group! It was challenging and fun. The Utopia room is unlike any other escape room I have do e before. The staff were very friendly and helpful!

22:21 16 Mar 19
We had a very expierence. the staff were friendly and the room provided a challenge that was fun

Alex was our guide and he created such a fun environment for all of us!!! Our group consisted of ages 11 to 67 and we all were part of the team! Great experience for every single one of us! We will be back!!! Side note we made it out of the room with 44 seconds left with NO CLUES!!!
01:18 21 Jan 19
We had great fun! The host did an amazing job! Looking forward to trying another room!
01:39 03 Jan 19
It was a crazy holiday season, but I am so glad we took the opportunity to bring our family to Lock and Key Escape Rooms. Our task? To get our names back on Santa’s nice list!!!! Most of us hadn’t been to an escape room before, but that didn’t prevent us from having a blast trying to figure out each little puzzle. They kept us on task with an entertaining and clue-filled story where we definitely found some new perspective. Thank you Tony and Alex! We’ll be back!
Paul G. Joslin
03:48 28 Dec 18
Awesome and fun experience. The host did a great introduction!

Great fun. Went with my family in a group of 6 and had a blast. Puzzles were fun and engaging. Would definitely go again.
20:27 24 Nov 18
The girls had a great time!!
19:31 10 Sep 18
This was my first Escape Room experience and it was a lot of fun. And according to my brother, was one of the better ones he's been to. The back story and storyline made it fun to try and figure out how to get through it all. Would definitely go there again. Thank you Lock and Key Escape Rooms
04:02 27 Jul 18
Brought my 13 year old daughter and her friends for her birthday. They had an absolute blast! It was run very well from start to finish. The Locker Room puzzle was perfect for them. Thank you Lock and Key!
02:49 14 Jun 18
Alex was our host and was awesome! He provided us newbies with a great introduction. The room was a lot of fun with different types of clues, puzzles, and lateral thinking. It was a wonderful experience.
11:57 29 May 18
Our group had never participated in any escape rooms and they were willing to work with us to succeed in our mission. Definitely recommending to friends and family!

We had a great time! Can’t wait to try another room!
15:43 31 Mar 18
My family and another family had so much fun taking part in the Professor Jones escape room! The adults and teenagers in our group had a great time! Great staff too!!
04:02 09 Feb 18
Lots of fun. Keep 9 people busy for an hour? Yes sir. Clever puzzles, fun storyline, and an obligatory chess board. Loved it.
23:56 20 Jan 18
Just did one of their rooms today and it was brilliant! I'd never done an escape room before and they made it really fun! We did Professor Jones' Office, and boy was it exciting when we solved the different puzzles!If you're looking for something fun with some friends, go check this place out!
22:18 20 Jan 18
My third time doing an escape room and by far my best experience! Great puzzles, great staff! Highly recommend.
02:39 11 Dec 17
I brought my employees here for a party and we had a lot of fun.... great relationship building for all ages! Will definitely go back!
20:01 10 Dec 17
Amazing! We had a group of nine, ages 7-55 and everyone had a blast! The sword in the stone puzzle room was so much fun. What a great way to spend time team building. Thank you, Lock and Key, for a great experience!
02:02 19 Nov 17
We had a great time with our first escape room experience tonight! Very impressed.
02:11 29 Oct 17
So much fun! We would have never escaped had it not been for Professor Jones' assistant. Thank you we had a really fun time!! We will come back again!
01:28 29 Oct 17
Had a great time. We did it with our 9th grade Girl Scout troop.
03:28 26 Oct 17
Had so much fun! So much better than the last one I went to. Cannot wait to go again!

Awesome outing with our family, very creative story line and well executed!! I didn't know what to expect cause it was our first but I was very impressed!!!!
00:00 05 Sep 17
Cannot recommend this place enough!!!! I've done multiple escape rooms and this company has the best one BY FAR!! My whole family had the best time. I compare every other escape room to this one! Can't wait for the new rooms to open!
05:15 21 Aug 17
We've done quite a few escape rooms now and this was hands down the best! The puzzles are intricate and well thought out. Highly recommend this place. We also had three people in our group who had never done an escape room and they also had a blast.

Our Group of 10 tried this escape room 7/29/17 and we had a wonderful time. Was my first time to try an Escape room and I had a great time. The different puzzles and Challenges were fun and the opportunity for teamwork was refreshing. Thanks so much for a great time
18:46 28 Jul 17
This was the most fun, unique experience I've had in a looooonnnnnggggg time! Felt like I was Indiana Jones. � Adrenaline pinching and amazing team-building. Everyone should try it!
19:33 13 Jul 17
LOVED our experience at Lock and Key!! The room was beautiful, one of the best I've seen! The staff was hilarious and really made the experience. Can't wait to see what rooms they come out with next!
02:20 08 Jul 17
Great time, our group joined another group of various ages. Everyone had a great time. Original room idea plan Togo again to the next room.Definitely recommend.
23:48 02 Jul 17
Really well done and intricate puzzles! We are novices, and when we struggled we got great clues. We had a lot of fun and I would for sure go back and do another room! I love that this one is family owned and operated.

03:07 02 Jul 17
All of you people looking at this page deciding whether or not to do this activity with your friends and family...do it. You won't regret it in the end. The room my friends and I did was Professor Jones room, which was super fun to look for clues and figure them out. Now stop reading this and go and do one of these rooms. You'll have a blast. Trust me.
15:07 05 May 17
We had a great time here, I would highly recommend it.
23:25 29 Apr 17
A lot of fun! They gave us guidance when we absolutely needed it, but not too much, we still felt like we were doing the work.
01:43 24 Apr 17
We had a fantastic time!! Can't wait to try your new rooms at your new location!

It was fun! Not too hard, not too easy, the clues were helpful but didn't give too much away, and our group of 8 Minnesota Marine Moms rocked that room! 🙂

02:55 16 Apr 17
We went with a group of six and had a great time! Lots of cool puzzles and riddles to keep us all engaged. We made it out in 48 minutes �Although they are closing their current location (building being torn down), they are hoping to open soon in the nearby area. Great hosts!! Definitely recommend!
03:02 28 Mar 17
Excellent time for all ages!!!! Kept us all in to it searching for clues! Highly recommended and will definitely be back.
02:50 28 Mar 17
My sister, brother in law, husband and myself took our kids with ages 7-16 and they loved every minute of it! The story line was great and finding the clues was so exciting!
01:29 20 Mar 17
Fun experience! Excellent staff so friendly and helpful! Great family and teambuilding activity. Everyone was able to help out and play a roll.
00:09 14 Mar 17
Second one I've done. I enjoyed it very much, even had moving puzzles. Good size room for 6-8. Difficult with out some clues. We needed 3 to get us back on track.

06:53 11 Feb 17
Enjoyable escape room. Alex was a great moderator and was very helpful in explaining the structure of the escape room. Our group found the room to be a fun and approachable challenge - more hands on thinking. I would recommend this place for any first timers or other escape room vets.
04:07 11 Feb 17
Thanks for tolerating our crew and getting us through!
17:39 04 Feb 17
Very fun experience. Lots of the props featured some very cool mechanisms and hidden features. We had a great time.
03:56 28 Jan 17
Had the best experience tonight! Alex was fun, friendly, and greeted us with such happiness! Loved the room, Alex was just the right amount of interactive to help us on the way. It was affordable and worth every cent, can't wait to try the new rooms at the new location! Will definitely be back!
13:13 01 Jan 17
Our entire group had a great time here! The puzzles ranged in difficulty so that everyone could feel they were a part of solving the room. We were amazed at the intricacy of the different parts, and it was so very well done! The gentleman who was working there seemed as genuinely excited for us to be there as if it was his first day showing someone the puzzle room. He explained things very well ahead of time, and was energetic and authentic. We will definitely be going to some of their other puzzle rooms when they open this summer!
17:23 26 Dec 16
Really fun to do with our family and friends. We had to work together to solve the puzzles. Nice job. Well done. You won't be disappointed.
Kari Lemmon Larsen
14:35 09 Dec 16
Our eight member work team did the escape room and had a great time. Alex was a great host. We enjoyed the puzzle ... which wasn't too easy. We cracked it with 9 minutes to spare. I'd definitely recommend.
14:11 28 Nov 16
Great team building exercise and tons of fun! Prof. Jones room was very creative. Staff is amazing.
00:42 28 Nov 16
Very interesting and fun! Yes you can leave the room early if needed. Time went really fast.

23:00 26 Nov 16
Awesome! Can't wait to come back! Great for my kids (ages 10 &7) and for the adults! Family owned and operated and they were friendly and accommodating. Our first room, and I expect we won't find a better one! 🙂 highly recommend!!
03:45 17 Nov 16
The people running the room were very friendly and professional. The Professor Jones room was a great! The puzzels were challenging but solvable. The interactive features within the room also kept us interested. I hope to come back once the new room is ready!
18:16 14 Nov 16
This is by far my favorite escape room that I have done! The puzzles are all very interactive, creative and keep you guessing! The owners are super nice people as well. We will definitely be coming back to do future puzzles!
23:48 13 Nov 16
My husband and I did the Professor Jones escape room, and it was so much fun!!! The staff was super enthusiastic and nice!!! We're hooked, and we can't wait for a new room so we can go back!!!!
00:26 30 Oct 16
Great Escape room with creative and thoughtful puzzles!
02:27 18 Oct 16
Went with a group of 6 ranging in age from 11-40 somethings. We ALL had a blast! It was the perfect level of difficulty. Lots of cool surprises. We WILL be back to try a different room.
02:21 17 Oct 16
So cool and unlike anything else I've done. Genuinely surprised and excited while doing it. Special mention of Tony who really made it special. Can't wait to see more rooms!
02:17 17 Oct 16
This is the best thing ever!!!! Had way too much fun, and Tony was amazing!!! He really loves his job! We will be back!!!
