Visited with three adults and a 10 year old. We did the Senator's office and finished just in the nick of time. Our guide was helpful and a super nice guy. We were novices and definitely appreciated that you could ask for a couple clues...More

This was our first visit to an escape room. And although, on the whole it was interesting, we were less than [$150] thrilled. We reserved the Mad Hatter room on a Friday night at full price. It was a birthday outing for our family. We...More

This place was just absolutely phenomenal, my family and I had such a blast I was so pleased that this location made accomodations for the physically disabled. My favourite room was the "Mad Hatter Room" Harry Houdini would look like an amature compared to me.

Bring the family in and test your skills in figuring out the best room puzzles money can buy. Hone your skills on being the perfect escape artist that would put Harry Houdini to shame. The Mad Hatter room is by far the most fun and...More
