The puzzles in both Casino Heist and Kingdom of Night rooms were very tactile and made logical sense. It was easy to become immersed in the theme of each room. I love that they don’t place you with other people and the room is still a good price. My husband and I like to do escape rooms without any other people and most companies make you buy all (usually 8) spots to do this, but not this one! I loved that both rooms were back to the basics of escape rooms where it was all about solving the puzzles and moving to the next step without any unnecessary technology. I also truly appreciated that the Game Masters only gave hints when we requested them. Kingdom of Night was a bit more difficult, but we were still able to escape with just the two of us. I have escaped from just over 30 rooms and both of these are in my top 5 favorites. I highly recommend either room.

Loved the casino theme! This escape room had the right balance of difficulty and providing clues. We liked the variety of puzzles that kept us engaged. It was perfect for our group of 4. With 3 clues, we successfully escaped-which is an enjoyable way to end the game :)

Covid Safety: We were happy to see that they had hand sanitizer and disposable gloves for us to wear.

Other perks: They have a friendly reception area with mini chocolates and a coffee pod machine. Parking was easy to find right in front of the escape room and afterwards there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance. We grabbed brunch at a great spot around the corner.

Friendly staff. Challenging room! Reasonably priced. Clean. We've done several escape rooms and thought this one is among the best. Give serious thought to this place.

I went with a few friends, the host was very accommodating. The puzzles were good, the props were in great shape. We were able to get out rather quickly but missed the record by 2 minutes ( I was with some smartie pants)!! Fun place!

An excellent escape room. Nice variety of puzzles and a very fun challenge. My teenage boys and slightly older nieces joined us for a very fun hour. We needed help with a couple of on-screen hints and managed to escape with 12 minutes to spare. Facility is clean and secure. Looking forward to a return visit when the new rooms are open.

This is not the typical "Sherlock Holmes gave you a case" escape room. I really liked it. Go there and try to escape yourself!

Fantastic little escape room place. We did the casino themed room and it was a lot of fun. It was challenging, but very doable. The hostesses were very friendly and accomodating. They said they will have a Game of Thrones themed room soon and we will definitely be back. Would recommend.

2 couples both doing an escape room for the first time. Host was very good about doing some extra orientation for us rookies. We made out with a few minutes to spare. It was challenging but not too much. Would definitely do it again.
