About Us

I started the journey of creating Clue IQ with my best friend on four-paws, Cora, back in the Summer of 2016. I had played escape games before and instantly got hooked on the concept. The combination of mystery movies and puzzling games brought together in an interactive game I could play with friends blew me away. I could not get enough of playing and loved how each one told its own unique story. Fast forward to today and I am closing in on 100 games played… I warn you, it is addicting.

An escape room, also known as an “escape game,” is a real life game in which teams of players search for clues in order to solve a series of puzzles. Teams will have a set time limit to accomplish an objective or complete a mission .Escape rooms are like bringing a video game or a movie to real life where you get to be the main character. Games are set in a variety of historical time periods or imaginative locations, such as castles, bunkers, jungles, and space stations. Each room is an immersive adventure that will transport you to a unique time, place, or event. Inside you will encounter a series of challenges that will test your mind.

Something that really separates us from other escape games is the production quality and level of detail in our room builds. Our games have state of the art technology in them and our staff can remotely monitor all actions inside the game without having to enter and break the illusion. As an example in our Excalibur game players interact with a magical talking suit of armor left behind by Merlin as the players guide. Going beyond immersive set design and customer interactions we also have extremely high tech games.

The rest is history, now over 10,000 players later I could not be any happier with the decision I made to start this crazy journey. The amazing customers have named us the #1 Escape Room in the entire state and the #2 overall fun activity on TripAdvisor. We managed to hit #1 in Frederick after being open only 2 months. It was really awesome to see just how much fun people were having. Now we are trying to figure out how to bring you new and exciting content as fast as possible. We brought new outdoor adventures that are the first of their kind on the east coast and large scale mobile game we can take to you both online in 2018 and we promise there are more new surprises in 2019!
