Our family (grown children) did this with two other people that we met for the first time. There was a lot to work with and interact with to keep everyone involved. We got out with 5 seconds to spare.

While the staff was very helpful and professional, the set up really was confusing. From previous experiences, we assumed once you figured out how to exit once space, you could then focus on the next. Even with eight of us working at our best, we...More

Honestly the most fun I've had sober. The challenges are incredibly fun and just the right difficulty, and the production value is super high (sights, sounds, smells).
