We went with a group of 12 family members from the ages of 11-65. We all had a wonderful time and are still speaking afterwards! The employee was helpful with hints when she saw we were stuck and explained things well beforehand. Fun family experience!

Solving clues in order to get out of a room. Very challenging but fun. It is very hard to find the clues, but cooperation with other team members will be the key.

We took our office down and did it all together with staff and enjoyed Pub 500 before hand. Very fun and great hosts with just enough help to solve the great mystery. Team effort

Excellent! So fun for everyone involved (age 10,17, 27,& 45). We were not able to solve the puzzle, but we could've if we asked for more help. It was never boring.

The Witches Kitchen was lots of fun and very challenging! Great exercise in working together to solve the clues. We had a variety of ages with varied interests but everyone loved doing this! Highly recommend the adventure.
