A great time. VR escape room for 4. Super fun. Not as complicated as a traditional escape room but being in VR was really cool. Dragon tower escape was worth it.

We had a great time and made it out with time to spare. Alex is great and very helpful. He was there when we needed a few hints. The building is a little hard to find, it's in a strip mall.

Fun group of middle-aged mom-friends were seeking an activity in addition to the ‘standard’ night out to dinner. Fun, but for this group type, not likely a do-over. This was not my first escape room so I had somewhat of a clue. In particular, this...More
