This immersive escape room was very unique and high-quality! You could tell a lot of thought and effort went into the back story and aesthetics of the entire atmosphere. The rooms were incredibly pleasing visually; the decor was very realistic and well thought out. The game master was very creative with the stories, extremely passionate, and... helpful without giving things away. We were also impressed with friendliness of the staff. They were interested in us succeeding and having fun while understanding the rules, clues, and back stories of the rooms. (We completed 'The Sins of Doctor Faustus' and definitely plan on going back to a different room!)read more

Absolutely love this place! They currently have two rooms (Barnyard Winds and The Sins of Dr Faustus) but are producing two more. Both Barnyard and Faustus are interesting, unique, and integrate technology in a creative and organic way. Both rooms were very challenging and fun, and we were able to keep our kids involved as well — although they... did get a little spooked in the Faustus one! 🙂 The Dr Faustus room had the best set I’ve seen in an escape room and is my favorite out of about ~20 escape rooms that I’ve done. The game masters / owners are super helpful and enthusiastic. Overall great experience — I highly recommend!!read more

We had a GREAT time at Captivating Worlds. We have completed a number of escape rooms in the past and Captivating Worlds is at the top! Our group consisted of ages 7-73 and there was something for everyone to do. We did the Barnyard Winds room, which had a very family friendly theme and story line. As stated on the website, the puzzles are... designed for adults, but we still found a lot of ways to involve the younger players. It was a blast and we will be back for sure!read more

My children and I have done many escape rooms and this was our favorite! The set was beautifully and intricately put together. The audio and computer animations were impressive, as well as the originality of the puzzles and the storyline. I thought 75 minutes would feel long, but it flew by! We had a blast. We look forward to coming back!

This is the best escape room I’ve ever been to! The staff is very friendly and the room has so many fun puzzles. The hints are perfect and never give too much away. You also instantly receive feedback for doing things right so you know you’re on the right track! I definitely recommend this place, and I hope to go back soon to compete the new... upcoming escape rooms they’re building! It was such a unique and incredible experience so definitely book this place!read more

Me and my family went here & had the greatest time. From the briefing before the game to the game its self, every thing was amazing. Her and her husband built the best escape rooms & there's more being developed there that will be open soon. Definitely going back!

We had a great time at Captivating Worlds. The room themed Dr. Faustus was very neat. The technology that was incorporated made this stand out from any other escape room we had ever been in. Our game master was very kind, super thorough with her explanations, and very helpful throughout the game. Some puzzles were tough but even my 9 year old... showed some impressive thought and skills in this room! We are excited to see the new rooms you are working on. We will definitely be back. Thank you!read more

WOW So much fun. I went with my husband and my 12 year old son. This was our first escape room and it far exceeded anything I expected. The work that has been put into this is amazing, immersive is 100% accurate. We wanted to get out and do something as a family and this was perfect. We will be returning soon to try other experiences. My son was... asking if we could come back next weekend before we even left the building. The owners/creators seem like awesome people and have really created something to be proud of.read more

I had so much fun at Captivating Worlds! My group went through the Dr. Faustus room and it was so cool and spoooky. The handcrafted technology was unexpected and incredible and the room was perfectly challenging enough. Also the owners are such nice people and they are really passionate about their business and their customers. Give these guys a... try!!!read more

My favorite escape room yet! My two friends and I did the sins of doctor Faustus, and you can tell how much work was put into it! The puzzles and everything were super engaging, and it was fun because there was an actual story behind it. I really recommend going here! My friends and I are planning on going back to enjoy the barnyard room as well... (: also, the owner and the other person working were very friendly and you could tell how proud the owner is of this place (: 11/10 recommend!read more

I booked the barnyard winds room with my parents. The people running this place are really wholesome and they put a lot of time and heart into crafting the rooms. I really recommend going here. The puzzles are really fun and interactive. Also, the place looks small from the outside but dont be fooled! It has 2 floors and it goes back really far!... Will definitely be coming back to try out the other rooms.read more

We had such a fun time at Captivating Worlds doing the Barnyard escape room. There was a large variety of puzzles and games requiring different skill levels. It had a fun theme and was well thought out. I highly recommend giving it a try.

As a newly blended family this was one fabulous way to get the family to work together, communicate and just flat out have fun. We will for sure be going and trying the other rooms. The staff was warm, welcoming and very funny. We were amazed at what it all take to make an escape room come together. What a great day/time we had! Thank you

This is a fun and interactive escape room that unique and brings one-of-a-kind entertainment. We did the Barnyard Winds and it was a lot of fun. The puzzles were challenging but fun. Each room is uniquely designed allowing for participants to work together to solve the puzzles. I would recommend this escape room to others and hope to come back for one of the other rooms.

The absolute best escape room I've ever been to. Constantly coming back when new rooms are made. The owner is a genius and you can see the time, energy, and passion he puts into each room. Only escape rooms I will ever recommend.

This was such an amazing escape room to do with the family! Ages ranging from 11 to 71 and everyone was able to contribute. We all had so much fun! Give it a try, you won't be disappointed. Would give 6 out of 5 stars if we could!

We did the Doctor Faustus room on Friday. This room was great we managed to solve it with 11 minutes left. We will come back and try the other rooms when we are in the area again.

Went to Captivating Worlds with some friends. Let me just say it was the best escape room experience anyone of us had been to. The creator/owners are extremely nice and welcoming. I highly recommend this place and will definitely be back!

Our daughter treated us to The Barnyard Winds for Father's Day. It was really neat! A great big thank you to our game masters who helped us when we got stuck.

FANTASTIC!! WONDERFUL! Went as a family (10, 14 and 57 yrs). We all had a great time. A terrific experience, challenging and great visual effects! The staff was also great. Informative and very nice. Would highly recommend Captivating Worlds to any group and plan on coming back to experience another adventure soon!!Read more

Don’t Miss this Amazing Escape Room!! Captivating Worlds has done it again!!! The Barnyard Winds escape room was a a terrific experience with just the right blend of challenging puzzles, games of skill, and just plain fun. The addition of the animatronics makes this place one of the best escape rooms ever!! Not to be missed if you are in the Columbus OH area.Read more

Super unique, challenging, and interesting! Awesome escape rooms, designed by the owner -- we did both "Barnyard Winds" and "The Sins of Dr Faustus." Both were very clever and original and took our group almost until time ran out to solve (with hints, of course!). The Dr. Faustus room had a gorgeous set design and the puzzles fit the theme very well. I highly recommend!Read more

An experience, not just puzzles. As escape room owners and enthusiasts, they detail and technology that went into these rooms Are of the best we have seen, and we have done hundreds of rooms all over the country. The rooms were challenging but not frustratingly difficult. Everything flowed within the story lines very well and there were plenty of puzzles and tasks for everybody. Anybody in the Columbus area looking for something to do, if you’re deciding between escape rooms in town, this is the one to choose.Read more

Great time! Excellent time for our whole family. Puzzles were challenging but not impossible. They have 2 rooms currently open, with 2 more on the way soon. We can't wait to go back!Read more

Fun Until the Cows Come Home! We had an absolute blast at Captivating Worlds! Our group consisted of ages 7-73 and there was something for everybody to do. The puzzles are created at an adult level, but there are still plenty of ways to involve younger players (let them turn the key, let them place the statues in order, etc). We completed the Barnyard Winds room, which has a very family friendly theme. Excellent use of theming and technology throughout the experience. This is not like other escape rooms. You will not be disappointed!Read more

Best escape room in Ohio. What a great experience for my daughter and her friends. Her friend who had been to many escape rooms even one in Cincinnati said that this was the best one yet. The special effects were well done and since it was my daughter's birthday they tailored special things for the Birthday girl. A very memorable experience. We will definitely be back.Read more
