Overview
More
Using teamwork, wit, logic, and keen powers of observation and problem-solving, you must find clues and solve a series of puzzles to escape the room in 60 minutes. Each room offers a new, live-action adventure for you and your family, friends, and colleagues. Escape Rooms are a rising entertainment trend that originated in Japan in 2007 and have been popping up in major cities around the world ever since. This attraction is suitable for various groups such as families, sports teams, coworkers, date night, birthday celebrations, girls/guys night out, etc. As a company of four individuals who call Maine their home, we have carefully designed each aspect of this business using our Yankee ingenuity. Our goal is to present an experience to our guests that immerses them in the tasks at hand and leaves them feeling challenged yet satisfied that they just participated in an activity that they will be discussing long after they try and escape.

This is the second room we've done with our family. It's a great reunion kind of thing to do and so much fun! Provides lots of good stories too while discussing over dinner afterwards. Will be back next year when visiting my family.
