The staff was extremely sweet and explained everything perfectly. It was my first escape room and I had a blast! I like that they provided us clues and got our feedback at the end of the game

Had a great time with the family solving the Pipeworks mystery. Lots of laughs and a little embarrassed that even with a hint we still missed one of the clues- but solved the mystery anyway!
