We’ve done a few escape rooms but Over The Falls went over the top on set design and details! It made for a really fun and challenging experience. It was the best escape room we’ve experienced locally so far.

What a riot! This was our first escape experience and now we want to do more. My husband and I with four children ages 23, 21, 18 and 16 worked together to escape. I highly recommend the experience.

The rooms were well thought out and put together very well. This is by far not your typical escape room experience and worth the few extra dollars they charge per room compared to other places.
