Took my family of 5, ages 8 through 46, and had a blast solving the puzzles to get out. And we had a summer promo code that gave us 20% off. It was less expensive than other escape rooms I've seen, but just a good.

Took 7 girls for a teen birthday! They managed to escape! They needed a few hints and redirects, but they did it! The staff was wonderful and the facility was comfortable and clean! Will definitely go again!

Traveled many escape rooms along the east coast, this is certainly in the top 2 in room design and probably the best experience. We did the Alice in Wonderland first. Based on how “well” we did, she upgraded the room from medium to hard and...More
