This a horrible experience. Clues were difficult especially when they were for the other groups clues. Props failed to work and the managers had to come in a reset the equipment to work. Over prices and hokey. Would not give them a second chance. Then...More

I had a great time in this escape room. The staff was very friendly and made sure that the trip was enjoyable. We didn't finish the room in time, but the challenge was still very enjoyable.

Such an awesome alternative for date night. Definitely money well spent instead of paying for popcorn and movie.

The staff was friendly and enthusiastic and the room was enjoyable! The only thing I would change is the concept of not having a leaderboard, I find that enjoyable to shoot for.

The experience here is very polished. The challenge of the puzzles is figuring them out logically, not fiddling around with slack in the components like some other escape rooms. It was a good challenge and a fun experience.
