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!

Very nice room, fun puzzle, and a great room operator.
17:14 16 Apr 23
Impossible Mission was a very fun and well crafted room. Theming was great and puzzles were fun. Our game master was very good at only giving us a nudge when needed.
13:20 16 Apr 23
What an amazing experience! Different difficulty levels. Fun for all ages.
18:05 15 Apr 23
We had a great experience in the Utopia room! Great info shared beforehand and a variety of skill levels of puzzles in the room. Definitely coming back to try another room!
03:18 12 Apr 23
Our host was extremely welcoming and added to our enjoyable experience. The escape room was unique with a variety of puzzles unlike any we have ever encountered before. We are looking forward to returning soon to try another room.
16:07 05 Apr 23
02:14 01 Apr 23
Second time back and so much fun each time!!
17:45 28 Mar 23
The wife and I are avid escape room/puzzle room nerds. We got to try out one of the rooms here and prove that with our time. The owner took time to talk to us afterwards and we had a very pleasant chat. Super fun, awesome people, liked the whole time, will be back to try the other rooms!
00:24 27 Mar 23
This was a most fabulous experience! I have been to a few escape rooms and this was my favorite! My children and grand children were skeptical, but really got into the experience and loved the creativity, the struggle to “figure it out” and the “gentle pushes” we received. We finish with 20 seconds left!! We talked about it for the rest of the day. Well done!!

My 13 year-old daughter and her friends had a great time at Lock and Key Escape Rooms. The escape room was appropriately challenging and fun!
15:39 25 Mar 23
Such a fun experience with my boys. Difently would do it again.
03:01 25 Mar 23
We had a great experience! Definitely one of the best escape rooms I’ve done!
17:41 21 Mar 23
Going here was so much fun! We were able to escape both rooms and can't wait to return. Zach gave us a great experience. He added to the fun and was very helpful. Thank you for an amazing time!
00:57 21 Mar 23
We tried to escape the Utopia room. It was beautifully done and so well thought out. We really enjoyed all the aspects the room had to offer. The staff were extremely friendly, and helped to immerse you in the storyline from the very beginning. Lock and Key is a great experience all around.
21:59 19 Mar 23
Very fun, so detailed. Was very, very warm in the rooms. Otherwise, every detail was flawless. Just the perfect amount of clues. We brought 8 people, probably more fun for all with 4. Great experience, would do again !
21:56 19 Mar 23
Great puzzle design!
03:55 18 Mar 23
Mary-Ann did an amazing job!! Escape room was insane!!
04:28 12 Mar 23
We had a great time at Lock and Key Escape Rooms! Adam was our game Master and he was super helpful! We didn’t quite make it out - we were soooo close - but he worked us through the last of the puzzles. Great atmosphere, super fun theme! I’ll definitely be back to play more rooms there! Thanks for the fun night Lock and Key Escape!
22:49 09 Mar 23
Easy to book (some places never call you back but this was easy to book online the same night!!) and the room was great! Excited to go back and try more!
23:12 08 Mar 23
We had a great time my kids, my wife and I all had a great experience. Alex was the best!
02:15 08 Mar 23
Wow!!! So very impressed! The room was great! The staff are great! We will be back to do another one!! Highly recommend! Definitely number one on our list of escape rooms!
19:02 04 Mar 23
It was such a blast!
23:36 03 Mar 23
23:52 02 Mar 23
I had so much fun with my coworkers in the impossible mission room. We work at another escape room and the owner was so kind talking to us and letting us pick his brain after the escape room. We can’t wait to come back and play the haunted carnival room once it opens up.
23:35 22 Feb 23
Update 2/22/23:I recently went to their new location at the Southdale mall. I've done both the Impossible Mission and the Utopia rooms. They were both fantastic. After doing the second room, we couldn't decide which one we liked more because they were both so good. Such great entertainment. Great activity for friends and family. And the staff are great as well! We are looking forward to going back again for the next room.--This was the third escape room I've done and by far the best. There were only a few people in our group that hadn't been to an escape room before, so although they had fun, they didn't know the difference. Those of us that have done them before were super impressed. The host can really make or break the experience and ours was very good; he helped us when we needed it without helping us too much and making it not fun. The room itself had lots of cool electronic type events; without giving anything away, it is the kind of thing where you pull a secret lever and suddenly something else in the room changes. Highly recommend it. The theme of our room was like an Indiana Jones type thing, but I know they have other rooms, so we will definitely be back!
00:11 22 Feb 23
My children enjoyed each minute of experience. Staff was great and had lots of patience.
19:25 20 Feb 23
Such a great time and awesome escape rooms! Have played 2 there now and both have very high production quality and challenging puzzles. A little hard to find but if you come into southdale by the smash burger and take the elevator all the way down it is right there.
02:12 20 Feb 23
So much fun! Great for teens as well as adults! Great for bday parties, we came for my child's 16th bday party, but I'll be coming back for a fun girls night out activity for us mom's.
01:29 18 Feb 23
I'm pretty new at escape rooms but this place is really fun. I've done Utopia and barely missed completing it and today I accomplished Impossible Mission with my gf. It was alot of fun. I would recommend this place.
22:44 13 Feb 23
Lock and Key is so much fun! We have completed two of the three rooms and cannot wait to complete the third one once its complete! All six of us highly recommend checking Lock and Key out!
17:02 06 Feb 23
Super fun, well-managed and a great time.
04:05 05 Feb 23
We did the utopia room. We have done many escape rooms all over the world and Utopia was definitely the most unique room we’ve ever done. We signed up just the two of us and most of it was doable until about half way thru I can definitely see where 3 (or more) people is really needed. We didn’t make it out (not surprising because it is a 9/10 difficulty and 3+ people are recommended) but we still had fun. We’ll definitely be back to try the other rooms.
01:26 30 Jan 23
Fun time, fun place, great host. Will be going back to try other rooms!
06:00 19 Jan 23
My husband and I did the Utopia Room. This was an excellent room and we had so much fun. Would highly recommend. We solved it just the two of us and we enjoyed every step of it.

We went for a girl's weekend and it was the first time ever going to an escape room for all of us. We were impressed. Very fun, challenging and we had some laughs afterward. MB was very good at her job, guiding us along the way. We can't wait to go back and try the other one!
16:54 08 Jan 23
So much fun! Highly recommend for a family or friend night out. We made it with 37 secs left! Phew
05:13 04 Jan 23
Staff service alone deserves 5 stars! The rooms were good too!
03:50 03 Jan 23
Adam did a great job as game master and we had a blast in Utopia. Your happiness is guaranteed.

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!

03:48 28 Dec 18

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.

15:27 31 Jul 17
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!

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!

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

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.
Chelsea Hull Larson
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!!!
