This was our first escape room and it was super fun! The kids had a blast too and they can't wait to go back. The puzzles were challenging but our guide was great. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.

So fun!! Lana was the perfect host, she made our trip so enjoyable and was the perfect game master. As someone who has worked in the Escape Room business it was so good to see such a competent host! Loved the room itself, and I’m excited to go try more! (They are also very good about safety measures and sanitation and it made us feel very safe to play)

I’ll open with they’ve done a great job adapting to the COVID world. Everything was clean, and events were deconflicted so we never saw other families. Manhattan was a great room. A+ in theming, immersion, and game flow. One important note: it involves some crawling and stairs, not difficult by any stretch and adds to the experience for the able-bodied but may pose issues for others. I highly recommend this room. We had a blast!

I love my escape rooms and have been to this location three separate times. The rooms I took part in were Innocent, Alice in Wonderland and Manhattan. The stories seem to be loosely thought out and have varying levels of difficulty. Overall, they were on par with the other independent escape rooms I’ve visited. I would recommend this place with caveats. Alice and Manhattan have crawling and uncomfortable spaces. They jammed things into a tight space which is ok but if you can’t crawl around - those rooms aren’t for you. Manhattan has prop issues (can’t say more without giving things away) and areas that are unnecessarily poorly lit. Innocent was my favorite experience. It’s their most difficult. Overall it was the most complete room of the three. Game masters vary. We had three different game masters and they weren’t really consistent. We experienced great, good and ok. I HIGHLY recommend avoiding a busy night. My friends and I had two good experiences during weekend days and one rough one on a Friday night. The game master didn’t fully prepare the room because he was rushed (he needed to walk in mid game to bring in a prop) and we could easily hear teams in the room next to us yelling and getting clues for a separate game. It was distracting. Overall it’s a nice place to play but could be more polished and game masters lack consistency. The stories are solid and the puzzle variety is great. Ask for clues if you need them - not all game masters are forthcoming, even if you’re doing everything right and it’s something on their end.

I took a 13 year old young woman I mentor and we had a fantastic time. Staff was helpful and encouraging the entire time. He gave us clues whenever we needed it to ensure we had a good experience. We could also pick how hard we wanted it to be which was nice since we had never done an escape room before. I plan to be back!
