5 STARS! The owner, Mark, is absolutely incredible. He designs the escape rooms with *such* attention to detail. His rooms (I’ve seen each except for the Jungle one) are fun and effectively story-driven without being painfully campy like some of the other Escape Room businesses....More

I had so much fun completing the "Lit" escape room with my friends. All of the pieces we needed to figure out we're tricky, yet manageable, and the people working there added to our experience tremendously. I will definitely go back when in Phoenix again!
