Escape Room Herndon did a fantastic job representing Ravenchase Adventures, a string of affiliated escape room companies with several locations across the Richmond and DC areas. It’s hard to go wrong with Ravenchase. The interior of the building is aesthetically pleasing with numerous easter eggs referencing current and previous rooms adorning the walls. Their start times are deconflicted so as to avoid interaction with other customers (we never came across other gamers during our time), and all COVID protocols and precautions were closely followed and strictly enforced. There is plenty of free parking at the facility’s location, and the ERH team is always professional, supportive, and pleasant to interact with. Our pregame experience was above industry norms at 9.
Everything about this location is high quality, which is a hallmark of the Ravenchase Adventures brand. The props in the room worked without a hitch, and everything was sturdy, professionally done, and clean, including a fully operational Tesla Coil! We loved the easter eggs throughout the room that paid homage to current and previous rooms. Quality came in well above industry norm at an 8.0.
The puzzles in Magician’s Workshop were fantastic, logical, and fit in perfectly with the story line. We had a blast working through this multi-room, non-linear experience and gave the puzzles a 7.7.
Magician’s Workshop challenges you to break into the theater shared by your master, Carter the Great, and his rival, The Great Danton. True to its name, the room truly resembles an authentic magician’s workshop. The ERH team did a phenomenal job with the scene setup and immersion. Well above industry standards, we rated the immersion an 8.0.
We’ve done three out of ERH’s four escape rooms, and all have been an absolute pleasure. Magician’s Workshop was certainly no exception coming in at an 8.0 for fun and 8.1 overall. If you’re in the DC area, we highly recommend their rooms for escape room enthusiasts of all ages and skill levels!
