About this Activity
Several tons of rock falling on your head, for starters.
Actually, that's pretty much the sum of it.
You and your team of Egyptologist nerd buddies thought you hit the jackpot when you made the discovery, and were getting ready to ransack the tomb of all its delightful artifacts (that were going straight to the MET, we're sure). Upon your moment of triumph, one of your colleagues (nobody's admitting who) pulled the classic hidden tomb mistake, triggering a deadly booby trap.
Now, you've got just 60 minutes to make your escape. You'll need to scour the room for clues, solves puzzles, and make your way to freedom via a secret tunnel. Also, collect as many artifacts as you can-- all that precious Pharoah booty shouldn't go to waste, after all.
Focus your mind, and tap into your critical thinking skills. Team up with savvy strangers, or bring your smartest friends. Also, it's going to be pretty scary! So you might want to bring your mummy.
Note: Recommended group size is between 4-8 people for best experience. Children under the age of 16 are only permitted with appropriate adult supervision in the participating group. Full name of all participants must be provided.
Due to building's security process they need the full first and last names as shown on each player's ID. Each participant will need to bring a valid form of photo ID such as a drivers license or passport with them to check in as well.

I really like the room as a whole, and figuring out the clues. They were clever, but I think I would hide some of the items in the cases.
Meaning not in plain sight- some, makes it more worth the find! I do like the variety of items they’re were and having to actually think about it.
I wish I had more time for the second room since I was close on the thought processes for some of the “more valuable” items, but that’s our own fault for only have two that day, haha.
Looking for the next room we’ll try!
Daniel H.The Lost Spy Escape Room July 29, 2017
This was a fantastic experience from beginning to end. Wife and I took some out of town friends who really wanted to try an escape room. Appointment was easy to make online. They accommodated us even though we were late. Our host greeted us in the building lobby (sorry, forgot your name), was funny, and informative. The room was extremely well done, probably the best I've seen. You can tell they put some serious time and money into it. The puzzles were great, and when we were stuck, clues were provided in a very fun way. We were a few steps from finishing, but we didn't have a big group, so not too disappointing. I highly recommend Clue Chase.
Emily M.The Lost Spy Escape Room July 21, 2017
Great corporate event or team building activity!We did the most challenging room- it's a challenge! But the hour went by so quickly and so much fun was had by all! Thanks for a great day- keep it up!
Sarah W.The Lost Spy Escape Room June 27, 2017
Birthday adventures were amazing! We thoroughly enjoyed the Heist and Egyptian Tomb. We will definitely be back to complete the other rooms on our next visit. Lou was a fabulous guide and really made the entire experience even better.
Gracey W.The Lost Spy Escape Room June 20, 2017
I celebrated my birthday with a group of friends doing the escape room at Clue Chase. We all had a good time, it was fun working as a team solving the puzzles one by one! The staffs there are friendly and very accommodating on the starting time for my group when I was making the reservation. We had 28ppl and booked 3 themes (The Lost Spy, Egyptian Tomb and Alien Encounter). My Alien Encounter team almost got it (missed by 30 seconds). What a fun way to challenge your mind with friends, I will definitely come back to do the other themes!
Vicki R.The Lost Spy Escape Room May 7, 2017
Easy location in mid-town. Six of us got together and wanted an activity before lunch and drinks. Fun theme here with easier and some impossible clues. My college friends get all the credit for getting me out before time ran out. Our guide Keith gave just the right amount of support.
Cece C.The Lost Spy Escape Room April 1, 2017
Had the most amazing time today! We were a group of 6 and had two other join us. So much fun to have to work together and figure things out. Will definitely be back Louie was so amazing. He loved our group so much he broke out of character from the excitement of us getting closer and closer to solving the game. Can't wait to come back next month with my group to try out luck at the Alien room.
The location of this game is in a really nice building. I have heard others are in weird places but it was really nice.
Maria M.The Lost Spy Escape Room March 26, 2017
It was a lot of fun but really hard!
Need a lot of people in the group to attack all the clues. Had a great time even though we didn't solve them all in time

Stephanie was awesome!
Shuyi Z.Egyptian Tomb Escape Room February 23, 2017
Absolutely love it! It is a great activity for groups and it requires lots of teamwork. It got really intense since we were only given 60 minutes to find clues and solve puzzles, but we found our way out eventually! Would love to go back again!

This was my first time doing an escape room and i have to say im in love, It was fun, and challenging. Without giving to much away...don't rip up the floor tiles....i promise there not clue's. LOL
Ferina C.Egyptian Tomb Escape Room February 22, 2017
We made it out with a minute and 10 sec to spare! Room was really fun, as was our host (who was really helpful). Would definitely return to try addition rooms and have already recommended to people. We also had a person in our group who booked last minute and Vimbly was able to get them confirmed super quickly.
Rachel K.Ultimate Heist Escape Room January 29, 2017
We played the Heist game at 5:30PM on 1/29/17.
The game is in the basement of the GRACE building across the street from Bryant Park. At the security desk (BRING ID!) they print out your building pass, and someone from Clue Chase brings you downstairs into a waiting area.
The waiting area is kind of standard: dingy kitchen area when you walk in, a few sofas, a table, and some random brain teasers.
This specific game was public, with my husband and I playing with a group of 6 people (2 adults, 4 young children). For those of you looking for an escape game for young children - while they allowed these 4 children (aged 5-11, thereabouts) to book, I would recommend this room for children aged 10 and older.
The children under 10 were not very interested, nor were the puzzles designed to be for children that young.
The room was an early Gen2 - 1st gen locks and lots of paper clues, with 2 rooms. It was a loose pyramid, as the goal of this game is to get as many 'treasures' you can AND escape within the hour, so it is possible to skip entire puzzles and still escape.
The rooms are a nice size, and can easily keep a group of 6 well entertained for most of the hour without feeling claustrophobic.
The game master gave some nudges throughout the game to keep you on the main storyline
You can see that the money and investment was in the game rooms, and not in the lobby. I was pleasantly surprised at the difference between the two.
Same day bookings are possible, as we booked this morning for this evening's game.
There is no real way to 'ask for clues' from the gamemaster.
For us, playing with young children was not appealing or appreciated. This is not going against the room, but against the company for not having strict age restrictions or policies in place. A formal complaint has been sent to the company about this, and I am not including this in my 3 star rating.
It's 2017, and most of the games in NYC have been upgraded beyond Gen1 locks and paper clues. It was disappointing that it wasn't mentioned in any of the other reviews, as this would have been a dealbreaker for us.
The company has 2 other completed games, and are currently working on a 'space' themed room that is supposed to be higher tech. I may go back to play other games at this location, but if I do I think I will be calling first to see who else is booked in the room, or perhaps do a buyout for the room. With several other escape games and rooms within walking distance, they need to get up to speed with their competition.
Victoria C.Ultimate Heist Escape Room January 29, 2017
9 of us did The Ultimate Heist as a part of birthday celebration. The game has enough riddles for everyone to be occupied. It was fun! Thank you.
McKellen R.Egyptian Tomb Escape Room November 28, 2016
Awesome experience, perfect group activity. Working in parallel to solve the clues definitely helped, it's great the room was designed so we could do that. We also beat the record for the room! Excited to go back and try out the other rooms.
Sophie B.Ultimate Heist Escape Room November 7, 2016
I loved this place! I've done about 25 rooms so far and I really appreciated that not only did they have great and challenging puzzles, but also really well put together rooms and props, which made the experience that much better! Most places are either focusing on one or the other so I was happy to see that their rooms were just as good physically as they were challenging!
Mindy S.Ultimate Heist Escape Room October 10, 2016
Had an awesome time. The puzzles were challenging and the storyline very engaging. Keith was our helper and he's awesome. Would highly recommend if you have time to kill and am looking for something fun to do.
Aaron A.Ultimate Heist Escape Room August 8, 2016
First time doing an Escape and it was a lot of fun, and also really difficult. We did not make it out, though we got kind of close! Lou in particular was great -- I'm not sure if I've ever met someone happier with their job, or as energetic as he is. Definitely would go again!
Sarah F.Ultimate Heist Escape Room July 2, 2016
This was a lot of fun for the the two adults and two teens in our group. Very worth the money. Our "game" was for 4-10 people and when we first turned up and saw another family there I think we were all disappointed that it wasn't just us. But everyone agreed after that it would have been much harder to escape with just the four of us - there are just too many puzzles to solve - and the other family were great to work with. It was a good experience for my teens to have to collaborate with kids they'd never met before.
The guide who gave us hints and nudged us along was really lovely and helpful. I could imagine someone becoming quite jaded and bored running these games multiple times every day, but he seemed genuinely enthusiastic and energetic about it.
We all agreed that we'd definitely go back and try the other rooms.
Michael C.Ultimate Heist Escape Room June 15, 2016
Woot! What a hoot! Fun times with friends and keen to come back and explore the other rooms.
Meredith S.Ultimate Heist Escape Room June 3, 2016
This is a wonderful, and convenient, location for a team building event. My colleagues and I went here last evening and everyone walked out asking when we could do this again!! We participated in the "Heist" option. We had some immediate success and then had some trouble putting a few clues together, so "Vinny" came in to help us put some clues together to make it to the next step. Ultimately we got out of the room and our point score was higher than average :)
I think our team will be returning in the months ahead and I would certainly recommend this to others looking for a fun, engaging and team building experience.
Bob T.Ultimate Heist Escape Room May 23, 2016
(This review is for the Ultimate Heist.)
I noticed there was a lot of praise for the Egyptian Tomb, and it definitely looks like from the pictures they put a lot of work into that set.
Unfortunately, I can't say the same for Ultimate Heist.
I'll try to avoid spoilers, but there's not exactly that much to spoil. You're sent to a room full of valuables and told to rob it blind. Unlike many Escape Rooms, your score isn't just based on how quickly you get out -- you can escape empty handed if you want, but what kind of thief would do that? ;-) Your goal is to physically stuff as much loot as you can fit into the bag before you make your escape.
It's a cool premise, but they dropped the ball on it. Some of the issues:
1) Production messes. Handwritten clues were hard to read. One puzzle had, literally, come unglued (and it was only thanks to a smart member of our team that we managed to figure out what it was supposed to be before it fell apart).
2) Puzzle originality. We were solving the same puzzle over and over again. Unlock this box? Great, here's another box. Some of the puzzles were actually quite interesting -- and again, won't spoil them -- but if I never see another plastic cube again, that's fine by me.
3) Atmosphere. This overlaps with the previous two a bit, but this is more of an overall critique.
We were supposed to rob the safe of a "master thief," but a lot of the room felt more like "that den in your basement you fill with whatever you can find at the antique store." Our minder (who was super nice) had to keep coming in to explain things.
Also, remember how you're supposed to get as much loot as possible before you leave? We did, of course, because we're master thieves. =P But I would've LOVED to get a $ amount, maybe even a high score board. What kind of thieves are we, if we don't even bother to count the loot?
I've played rooms from a few companies (Agency from Escape the Room, and Spaceship from Mission Escape) and this was definitely the weakest, in terms of effort and set design. It felt like a room that's still in beta. If you've never played an escape room before, don't stress if you've already bought tickets -- you'll have a good time, even in this one. But I would recommend others.
Addison Y.Ultimate Heist Escape Room February 11, 2016
Fantastic job with the props, atmosphere, and theatrics. The briefing they give you before you enter the room really sets the stage for the mysteries and clues to come. Couldn't recommend this place more!
I would stick to their recommendations, and don't hesitate to bring the max number of people for the room. There really is so much to do.
Jon C.Ultimate Heist Escape Room December 14, 2015
I love escape rooms and I can say authoritatively that Clue Chase has more polish put in its environments and into its clues than any other escape adventure I've ever done. The attention to details is amazing and the owner, David, is adamant about each of the clues fitting the theme and adding to the atmosphere.
If escape rooms are something you really love and you're looking for the best and most challenging rooms in NYC, head to Clue Chase. I did the Cold War scenario with a group of escape veterans and we barely made it out in time (1 minute left!).
Great puzzles, amazing props and decor, and an overall wonderful time.
