  1. Hi Lisa, I’ve done escape rooms in Hungary and Omaha. Never heard of them putting our group together with strangers. Do you know of Escape rooms that do NOT use that “business model”. I tried the Mission Manor, and they left us alone and that was awsome, but looking for others. Thanks!

    1. This is a common business model in much of the US, especially in major cities. In our more recent reviews, we note at the top whether a game is “Public Ticketing” or “Private Ticketing.” However, our reviews from Minneapolis predate this designation. I can’t say for sure which companies in Minneapolis offer private ticketing. You’ll likely have to check their websites. If they don’t offer it, it’s worth calling and asking whether you could play privately, especially if you aren’t looking to book during their most popular bookings times.

    1. Yes! And the good news is… our writer Matthew Stein recently visited the region. You’ll see his reviews and an update to this guide soon.
