One problem that we struck was that there was only one flashlight for the whole group. There needs to be a flashlight for all of the group members.

The staff was extremely accommodating and was helpful in explaining what was going on. We we were welcomed as we walked in. We did this with teen leaders who had a great time and it was the exact right level for them.

The Houdini Room was excellent! We enjoyed the setting, story, and having a live actor in the room as our guide. Well thought out, well-executed, and a LOT of fun! My teenage son can’t stop talking about it! A gem hidden in the near north...More

“Terminal” is the 6th escape room I’ve done and it was a doosey! I set this up as a teambuilding event for 8 colleagues and everyone had a great time. Only 1 other person had done an escape room, so it was probably harder than...More

Compared to other escape rooms, this one did not have too much diversity in terms of the types of puzzles. Some of the equipment did not work well.

Was really fun but was overall it would have been better if it wasn't so difficult. I was with a biochemist and an engineer and even they had trouble figuring out the clues. Needless to say we did not escape. The zombie added a lot...More

We went with a group of about 8-10 for a bday. No matter how much you know the people you're with, it's a ton of fun. It's challenging, efficient and definitely gets the adrenaline going. A good change of scenery from a movie and dinner....More

The manager, Brian, kindly invited us to return to try the Houdini room after a couple of mishaps during our first visit for Terminal. This room was really different from any others we’ve done and very impressive. We weren’t sure how we’d feel about having...More

We went the Great Room Escape as a work outing with about 10 people. Lots of fun and laughter. Pretty hard to solve the escape puzzle but they did give hints if asked along the way.
