Totally loved the experience. This was our first time doing a game room. We chose the easy level - Sorcerer's mistake (We had two kids in our group - an 8 year old and a 13 year old). The clues and puzzles were just the right difficulty so that even the kids could solve some of them. The clues/puzzles were engaging and kept us occupied till the very end. Didn't realize how the hour passed by. We finally solved the last mystery just 5 minutes before time. Our game master - Grey, was very helpful. At times when we were totally stuck she nudged us on with a gentle hint that got us back on track pretty quickly. She was also very helpful and clear with the directions at the beginning. Would certainly go back again!

We had a great time doing the Grinched escape room. Perfect for our 8yr old to join in and actually help with the experience. Malik was a great game master and did a great job.

If you are thinking about playing escape rooms here, just don't, at least in our experience.

As an escape room enthusiast, we have played over 60+ rooms and I generally know what we are in for when we sign up for an escape room. In this case, we left without playing a second room we had already signed up for as we had such a bad experience.

Our experience began auspiciously enough--arriving to find that our game master had been locked out of the office and had to be let back in the building. From there, it didn't get any better. We had a poorly choreographed opening video and in no way did I feel enriched in the theme. But, onwards to the room.

In a dark room that you discourage the use of personal flashlights or cellphones, give me more than one flashlight. My partner spent the room straining to see in the jungle. I don't call this fun. Beyond that, some puzzles were average, others were frustrating. There were some electronic puzzles that I'm still not sure if I was off on the solution or if it was just temperamental as I felt I did the same motions 4-5 times and it finally just "opened". Prop issues abounded. A prop rope had more knots and twists in it and thus it felt like the solutions were off. Too many times, we would work on one puzzle only to realize that we were working on the wrong thing and needed to work on that later-- that's overall poor pacing and design of the game. Knowing the solutions to several puzzles I find myself annoyed by them, not an "ah hah" moment -- but just a "why would you do that" moment.

Our game masters couldn't really be bothered to help us have a game time. And thus we didn't. Maybe this room was good a couple years ago, but now props felt in disarray and the room felt poorly run.

We had planned to play the Rest Easy motel, but decided it was better time playing at the board game bar nearby-- and it was. We had a great time there, something I can only wish for from the escape rooms.

A lot of fun. We’ve done a lot of escape rooms and we found this one, McGregor’s Mansion, to be pretty challenging. Some of the “aha” moments were spoiled by old equipment (doors would open silently, where they should open with a loud enough noise that you can hear them) but gamemaster, Gray, made it fun anyway. A shout out to Gray.

Had a great time being “Trapped in the Jungle”. Our game master Hannah was fantastic!! This was our fourth room and we’ve never been disappointed!

The 5 of us played the Jungle Game, ages 18 and up. We won with only 30 seconds left. The puzzles were fun and inventive. We had to ask for clues and definitely got the nudge that we needed. I would go again to try another room.

Lots of fun for my kids ages 11-17 and for myself. Hannah was super helpful which made the game more fun. We escaped from the jungle!

Did the jungle escape room with my family, and it was a fun bonding experience! We have done a few before, but this was the first we ever escaped - not because it was simple, though, we had seconds left on the clock! Our game master David was energetic, the decor was on point, and the puzzles were intriguing, though they took a little teamwork! Would definitely recommend and will be back for one of the other themes soon!

Excellent entertainment and fun.

We do escape rooms with another couple. This was challenging and satisfying when we were able to solve McGregor Manor.

They had something very clever I hadn't seen before--and no I'm not giving away!

Great fun for couples and families as well. You'll be challenged and have fun.
