About
An escape room is a real-life puzzle game. It is like National Treasure and Clue mixed together in the most engaging way imaginable. Great team building activity for ages 7 to 107.

We went up for a girls trip and had about 9 ladies do this. This room was really challenging but it had plenty of room without feeling claustrophobic. The staff was extremely helpful and fun to work with.

We've been here twice and both experiences have been amazing. We've been here with groups of adults and with kids. The puzzles are awesome and the rooms have a clever layout. We love it.

We did this as a family activity in two different rooms. We all enjoyed it thoroughly and really appreciated hearing an analysis of how we did at the end. Thanks. It was a great way to kick off the holiday season!
