“WOW!!! That was so much FUN, we have to do that AGAIN!!!”
That’s what Michael and Brook Hill, the owners of the Limitless Escape Games said when they tried their very first escape room game! Last May, they experienced a game in Austin, Texas that would quickly change their lives forever. They had so much fun that they went back the same day and played again. They then sought out these games in their travels and have now visited 20 escape rooms total! Less than a year later (Yes, less than one year) they have opened their very own escape games on Tuesday, February 8th right here in Livermore! Bringing to town a new unique adventure and entertainment that they just know you’re going to ♥ LOVE as much as they do!
When I met the Livermore couple a few months ago, I have to admit, I really didn’t have a clue ( 😀 ha! Sorry). BUT-It sounded like a lot of fun and I really wanted to learn more.
Here’s What I Learned:
What is an Escape Room? You’re locked (don’t worry, not really) in
a room and you have 60 minutes to escape! Your adrenaline takes over as you rush to uncover clues around the room and race to solve challenging, intricate problems.
To help me learn even more, Michael gave me a tour of their place last week and I have to say it was AWESOME! Pull off million dollar Bank Heists and solve unforgettable Murder Mysteries!! I’m in, show me the way! First up was the Sherlock Holmes room which I loved! They did a great job perfecting it right down to the smallest of details. The lights were mysteriously dim, the decor perfect for the time period and the door adorned the numbers to Sherlock’s Holmes 221B Baker Street address.
Next, their Bank Heist room, which was just as enticing with a very large realistic vault door and larger than life, encased Diamond. But, I don’t want to give away too much for either room, so I’ll stop there! Coming soon in less than two weeks, escape unworldly beasts in their Pirate Adventure room!
Why are escape rooms becoming so popular? Michael says, “It’s the mental challenge, it’s the WOW factor!” The puzzles are definitely well thought out, challenging and even hard at times. BUT- “It’s all about having FUN!”, says Michael, “We’ll give you as many or as few clues that you need.” Tailoring to each party in this way is what makes them unique. A far cry from his previous job managing Tech Sales in Silicon Valley, Michael, is loving every minute of it (literally)! He’s all smiles as he talks about everyone that has come through and the fun that their having. He especially loves how the room goes WILD when the game is coming to a close and some making it out just seconds before.
Off to an AMAZING start, Limitless Escape Games is getting RAVE reviews on Yelp and Facebook. They’ve already hosted games for big corporations such as CallidusCloud ,Oracle and PG&E that all agree it’s fantastic for team building! But these games are great for all! While, just in the short time I was there they received a call from a little league team. While all ages are welcome, Michael does have some suggestions on their Website where you’ll also find more details on pricing, groups, booking, and more!
What I love about these games is that you really get a chance to laugh-out-loud with family and friends for real! You’ll share and create timeless moments in your life. We all live very busy lives. It’s hard to find time to take up a hobby or have a vacation to unwind and recharge. Go say “Hi!” to Michael and Brook and try escaping for an 1 hour at Limitless Escape Games. Make this your hobby! You will have the time of your life!
