We took my son and some of his 12-year-old friends and did the Pharaoh's Tomb. They had a blast figuring out all of the puzzles. We had never done an escape room, but we would definitely love to try another one sometime!

The escape room is a fun team building, communication skill improving, think outside of the box activity. Last night 6 of us conquered the Copperhead Saloon with 34 nail biting seconds to spare. The puzzles are tricky with clues given when needed.This was my first...More

Thanks for the review! I definitely recommend checking out The London Blitz or our upcoming room The Butcher's Basement, both will be a fun challenge to follow up The Copperhead Saloon.

Thanks for the feedback Amy! We will definitely keep these suggestions in mind for future rooms. I recommend coming back to try The London Blitz, its a fun and challenging room set during WWII.
