This was the 20th room I had played (Conspiracy) and it was one of the absolute best. The level of detail into story, design, game play is amazing. Played every room in Frederick and the others don't even come close to the experience delivered at Clue IQ. Very impressed.

I went with some friends for my bachelorette party and it was AMAZING! What a fun and different thing to do. The level of detail was amazing and the owners were awesome! We did the conspiracy theory room and cracked the puzzle just in time. We've never laughed so hard, we can't wait to do more!

This is one of the best, most challenging escape rooms I've been to. It was clear that the folks running this place put a lot of thought and effort into making the rooms immersive and extremely detailed. The puzzles were also more complex than I've seen at other rooms. This was not simply a series of locks and keys, but a number of really tough, interlocking puzzles that used a number of non-obvious elements in the rooms. The staff also was extremely courteous and helpful. Overall, a great experience and one that I would repeat again. Highly recommend! This was a few notches above the typical escape room and was well worth the trip.

Thank you all for such a thrilling experience. I love playing puzzle games with an element of adventure. This was on par with games such as The Room or Rift, only you are in the game! Our host was excited for us to be there, and professional in his presentation of the game. Keep your standards high; never let the quality of your presentation falter. This is the start of something huge for Frederick!

What Sets Us Apart From Other Escape Rooms?

Immersive Room Design

There’s no office wallpaper inside our 14th century castle. No getting instructions from a wall mounted TV inside our World War II bunker. When we say we want you to immerse yourself in the game environment, we mean it.

Engaging Game Design

Unlike some escape rooms, we don’t get carried away and make puzzles so difficult that players get exasperated. We don’t limit the number of hints you can ask for. Our games are designed to be engaging, not frustrating.

Innovative Experience Design

We constantly innovate with technology to embed game timers, hints, and game master interactions into the gameplay. Expect a variety of puzzles and physical interactions, rather than a series of padlocks, at Clue IQ.

Player-Focused Operations

We always ensure every game has a dedicated game master. And while we use technology to design the experience, you DON’T have to be very computer-savvy to play any of our games; the tech happens ‘behind the scenes’.

Escape Room Gift Cards

Give your loved ones a chance to go on a thrilling journey in a magical world with a Clue IQ gift card. It’s a gift they’ll remember.

Memories That Will Last A Lifetime

Break free from the shackles of your daily existence as you go on an adventure in a mysterious and magical world.

Team up to spot clues, solve puzzles, accomplish tasks, and find your way out within 60 minutes. Bond with your family, your friends, your coworkers, and everyone else in your group as you work together to escape the room.

It’s an experience that everyone – whether they’re eight or they’re eighty eight – will enjoy, and will remember. Whether you’re simply looking for shared experiences with your loved ones, or trying to organize a party in Frederick, this is the place to be!
