Greta aesthetic, set design and consistency in puzzles to keep you immersed in the theme.
Set design was great. Totally felt like I was in my friends basement back in 1981 as soon as I walked in. Theme stayed throughout all puzzles.

9.6/10 So good I played it twice. The amount of creativity and work to make the mechanics of this room feel like an 80s kids basement was amazing. Definitely lots of nostalgia, but also just some really cool gameplay. This is the room that was recommended to me to even come try out ERH and they’ve been my top location ever since.

Cool room. Probably would be better if I was older and more nostalgic for the old video games/music/toys featured in the room. Still had a blast w/ friends.

We're happy to hear you enjoyed 8-BIT Escape! We tried to make it so there are some extra gems for people of that age. That said, you don't need to know anything about School House Rock, He-Man, Zelda, Gremlins, or any of the other little things we stashed in there to have fun playing it. We hope you'll join us again soon for another adventure!

I really enjoyed the room and the nostalgia it brought along with it. It’s possible to solve a couple puzzles without finding the clues using only what you know going in. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, it does add to the nostalgia. The room was a bit hot, so it was uncomfortable as I was sweating quite a bit. But all in all….REALLY fun room.
5 stars for the flow of the room. You have a pretty good idea of what you should be working on and when.
Oh my the nostalgia. I couldn’t help but hum along the ENTIRE time.
Staff was very welcoming. Our GM seemed like a newer GM but she was really putting everything she had into selling the storyline and I appreciated that.

Nothing really too strenuous. My only complaint would be the temperature of the room. It was a bit hot.

As a nerd, I found this room to be very special. Most of the puzzles were very well themed and it helped the room keep that retro feel they were going for.

Was a super fun, nostalgic experience. Absolutely loved the puzzles and the interactivity of them.

Had heard a lot of positive things about this room, so expected not to like it just in case. This is one of those few games that actually is significantly better than I would have ever predicted. It sent me through a whirlwind of flashbacks and all of the puzzles flowed seamlessly. Only negative thing about this experience was that the GMs gave hints when we asked them not to.

This was the final room that we needed to complete at ERH, and they just do not miss with any of their rooms. Right as the game master opens the door for you to enter this room, you are going to be fully immersed in a living room based in the 80s. Everything about this room, from the props to the puzzles themselves make this one of, if not the most perfect 80s themed rooms out there. This room was nonstop fun (even with us being born in the late 90s) and had some very unique puzzles that went with the theme as well. The final part of the room was so much fun and really ended the room with a bang! There is a bonus puzzle after completing the room if you finished in a certain amount of time, which isn’t too difficult. Overall, this was a great room and if you are in the area, it is a must do. 8.7/10

Even as late 90s kids, this 80s-themed room still evoked a lot of nostalgia! It was full of fun surprises, hilarious moments, and smart references that had us geeking out. We were repeatedly blown away by all the reveals and unique challenges. Highly recommend this room, which will make you feel like a kid again.
