I didn't know what to expect for a live escape room... and to be honest, I'm a bit of a scardy cat. I don't do scary movies and close my eyes when I'm scared! I figured this escape room wouldn't be any different.

I went with my husband, and we were actually part of an 8 person group. The other 6 people knew each other. At first I was hesitant, but the employee that checked us in helped us make the adult intros.

Without spoiling anything I will say this: the actors are great, the time goes by fast, if you aren't comfortable or feeling well there is a "panic button". The panic button was used by someone in our group. When it happens, it feels like a pause/timeout and then they'll continue with the program.

I would also say that it was harder than I thought it would be, and I may have screamed a bit. Well done, escape room! I'd go again (but still not into scary movies)!

Absolutely recommend! We did the Basement Room first and loved it so much we did the Study as well. Multiple rooms as well as live interaction with actors really made the experience. We went with a group of 16 people and split up into two groups.... All we could talk about the rest of the night was about the adventure and the laughs we all had. Look forward to next time!

I participated in the Escape the room: The basement with a group of friends and we had a great time. We especially enjoyed the live actor and trying to find each clue. Although we came close to finding all the clues, our group did not escape but the challenge was exciting. This is definitely a fun group activity or a way to do team building exercise.

I hated this escape room because they put you into a group with random strangers and that doesn’t allow for a great experience. Because depending on who is with you they will either decide to include you or basically solve the entire escape room themselves. Other places like escapology are better because they allow you to book a time no matter how small the party. It’s clear that this place cares more about the money than the experience a customer has. Also, after the room they take a group photo of you only to tell you its $10 per photo? Talk about wasting my time...(PS escapology takes a picture and sends you them FOR FREE)! Just say that in the first place and I guarantee you not many would go back and take the photo. They need to do better.

We were combined with another group. When you put in your add up for up to ten people, one would not think that you would not fill the vacancy with another group. If I make restaurant reservations for two, I don’t expect two other people to join me for a table if four. It ruined our birthday celebration and everything after that was ruined. On a side note I cannot select the correct type of visit. It was a family with no teens. I won’t be back.

Fantastic experience...Study was just my group of 4 and we escaped with 7 mins left
Basement was with my 3 and 7 ppl we didnt know. Communication is KEY! But we escaped with less than 2 mins to go and even the front guys didnt think we would make it lol

The live actors are incredible!

Only wish they had the room to put in the Elevator Shaft room like in LA. Only down side!

My group of 15 year old were scared and gave the staff a hard time -especially entering the room. They had been told by the group before it was scary-so they were hesitant-thinking it was a haunted house. Once in they enjoyed it! They are all planing to try the study.

It was our first escape room for the 4 of us. We all over 60 and had so much fun, found it challenging and so entertaining. We did “The Study”, the staff was so nice and helpful. Our room had a live actor, so cool! We are hooked and will be doing more, can’t wait to do The Basement.

Love this place. This is the second time through, unfortunately we died again twice before finding the exit. But we got closer. Guess I will have to try again. I like to space it out a bit. Can’t believe how much I forgot from the previous trip. Anyway had a different group of people this time and everyone just loved it.

My friends and I love doing escape rooms so we thought we'd try this one out while we were in town. Other than the fact that we had to share the room with 6 strangers (we had 4, max was 10), we thought the experience was great! Good puzzles, nice dark theme, and having scare actors was a nice touch. I would definitely come back again to try the other rooms, but it would probably be more enjoyable if it were kept to private groups.
