Love this place. Been twice, one with my friends and again with my family, both were great experiences. Loved our game master: Conner! Will definitely be back to play the other two rooms.

I believe I reviewed Fox in a Box before based on my experience in their prison room, and I think I gave it a 3/5. However, escape rooms are my “thing” and since this place is so close to where I live, I decided to...More

We're so glad you had fun breaking into the Bank! Playing interactively with the Gamemaster is the way to go for new players, and we're glad you agree. Come back soon and try one of our other rooms!

I had never done an escape room before. This was a great first experience :). I went with colleagues and we were all talking about it the next week.

We're glad you had fun breaking out of Prison and stopping the missile in The Bunker! Our staff is awesome and Ryuta and Katie are great examples. Two rooms down and two to go! We hope to see you back soon.

Played the Bunker scenario, with Libby as our ‘handler.’ There was a great mix of different puzzle types, and Libby provided great help after I stupidly created an unsolvable situation.

We're glad you had fun with The Bank and The Prison, and that you agree with us that private bookings are a better way to play escape rooms. We can't wait until you come back to play The Bunker and The Lab!

We have just completed a reorganization of all of our rooms with additions, removals and changes to some of the puzzles. We are now proud to say that we allow 6 players as a standard.
