The room was decorated nicely, Victoria was our room monitor and she was very fun and made the experience even better. The puzzles made us think and we really had a blast! Will definitely be back to experience the other rooms.

The rooms were challenging but fun. We completed the Gameroom and the Infirmary. The rooms were well set up and the puzzles very diverse. The employees were great, especially Q.

My team of 12 attended an escape room event and had a great time! Our host, Brandon, was very interactive and assisted us through the challenges when we needed some extra insight. Certainly recommend for team building or just a fun event!
