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.

This was our second time with an escape room& we enjoyed this one better as it allowed for unlimited clues, which felt like less pressure the other places.

This was our family's first every escape room experience. It was amazing. Took our two kids (11 and 13 years old) and had a blast. The host was very friendly and helpful throughout the game. I would highly recommend this to anyone.
