Awesome!!! The staff was incredible! Highly recommended! You have to stay in your car at first and the location only adds to the “fright” factor!

Having the actor in the room made it extra realistic and fun. Make sure to listen to any hints he/she may give you. We have 3 teenagers and they all loved it and we would definitely go back since sadly we did not escape.

Hello Jamie, I'm so glad that you and your family all loved it! And don't feel defeated for not making it through the first time, it typically takes 2-3 plays to make it out!

As our first escape room experience, it did not disappoint. It was fun to work together with our friends to figure out the clues under the pressure of time and fear.

Was a last minute invite so glad I went it was fun. You have to think and pay attention not too hard though. Wish we’d made it to the end!
