Top ways to experience nearby attractions

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Gangnam / Nonhyeon / Yeoksam
If you thought business and fun couldn’t mix, look no further than urban Gangnam and the nearby neighborhoods. On the surface, Gangnam comes off as a strictly business district with a plethora of high-rise office buildings jutting into the sky and the steady streams of office workers bustling about. But interlaced within are a string of shops, restaurants, bars, and other spots for entertainment. If Myeongdong is the generic meet-up and hangout spot north of the Han River, Gangnam is its answer for those on the south side. As evening comes, Gangnam comes alive with its countless neon lights attracting hordes of office workers, friends, and couples for food, drinks, perhaps a bit of singing at a noraebang, and more drinks. And the smattering of clubs around also draws plenty of folks looking to unwind and show off their moves on the dance floor. On weekends, the crowds gets bigger, the energy buzzes to a seemingly nonstop high, and Gangnam makes it clear why so many call Seoul the city that never sleeps.
How to get there
  • Gangnam • 2 min walk
  • Sinnonhyeon • 9 min walk

Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I rang the Gangnam 1 branch today (14th February) in the afternoon to ask about the escape rooms, and the person there was so rude. He spoke bad English too. I couldn't understand what he said. I asked him about the price and he refused to give me proper information. He said it was all at the website and cut me off. He is wrong. It doesn't give the prices there - not for each room. Different rooms have different prices. You can only find out the price when you actually book the rooms. I didn't want to book each room to find out the prices of each because I would have to ring the center and cancel each booking afterward.
Such rude treatment. I have been to two of their rooms in Hongdae so I have been a good customer of this business and to be given this sort of treatment is unacceptable.
I will go elsewhere next time. Very disappointed that they could not even tell me the price over the phone.
And I asked about discounts too, and he also gave me the wrong information. First of all he said that there were no discounts given. When I brought up discounts given at Hongdae branches, he then said discounts can be given.
What a confusing man. I rang up and still don't know the prices of each room nor whether discounts are given or not.
If they say the workers can speak English, they should hire people who speak English well, not someone who speaks bad English and is also rude and arrogant to boot.
If he was busy, he could have asked me to call back in a few minutes time. The way he answered and then ended the call brusquely was plainly disrespectful behavior. What is the point in them giving the phone number out if they don't want to answer basic phone enquiries?
Very disappointed in these people and this company!

유럽횡단 야간열차 플레이했고 매장에서 제일 재미있었어요. 직원분들 서비스도 좋고 리얼함으로는 방탈출 카페들 중 원탑인것같아요!

English clues with quality. Rooms have realistic interiors and a big storyline throughout. “Midnight Express” and “Jazz Bar of Death” are esp recommended.

It's full of reality.
It's fun to deduce!
It was fresh because it was different from normal room escape.
I had a hard time making a reservation, but I'm happy enough.
But it was a little difficult because I solved the problem in a mess.

Super fun! Every clue is given in English and Korean so English speakers will have no problems with it. Also pretty affordable for an escape room. Definitely recommend, especially if you're bored and looking for something to do. 너무 재미있었어요! 친구하고 같이 비 오는 날에 왔어요! 진짜 추천하는 곡이에요. 외국인이면 걱정하지마세요. 영어 힌트도 있어요.

We visited this escape room on a whim one afternoon and had a blast. One of the best escape rooms I've done (previous experiences in the US). Since it was last minute, we only had one room option which was the Jazz Bar of Death. It did not disappoint! The clues ranged from relatively easy to really making you think outside of the box and we enjoyed every minute. For those worried, like I was, the rooms were not quite as scary as I expected but be prepared for a few startling/funny moments. We escaped with 6 minutes to spare! Also noteworthy, every room has English and Korean clues so it is great for locals, foreigners, and mixed groups. The staff was great, as well. Highly recommend!

The room escape here is quite different from all the other ones in Seoul. I tried three different rooms here (Jazz Bar of Death, Alcatraz, and 1988) and I had a really good time with my friends in all three :) You can play in either Korean or English! Highly recommended!

I went to a few different places in Seoul for room escapes but this franchise provides the best quality. Excellent setting and equipments are very realistic. Best of all, instructions and stories are also given in English. Well trained employees. Taking my buddies next time for a different story line :D
