The study in murder room was a great challenge. We needed just a couple more minutes and we would have had it 😊. Ask for Matt when you go. He was great!

We had 7 in our group including 4 college and one High school student. Loved the murder- themed room. We needed one hint, but happy to solve the mystery. Enchanted Forest is great too.
