Attempted Cell Block C and some of the puzzles didn’t even make sense. When we confronted the game master, he was being very defensive and shrugged us off. This was an ultimate let down of what it should be.

We attempted CELL BLOCK C. Frustratingly fragile and poor quality puzzles. It isn’t about being clever but it’s more about getting lucky. Terrible game design that lacks flow. When we confronted the staff, we were brushed off. I personally won’t be back.More

You can do the games with just 2, but choose one of the smaller ones (ie for a smaller number of people) Still better with more people though!

Hi, I've done the CSI and the Cell block room. The CSI room I think would be too hard for a group of ten year olds. The cell block room is a bit easier but might be possible with an adult or two helping.

I'm not sure there would be room for 9 people in the escape room. I would try either prison cell or the other scenario first as the escape room was the hardest level.
