My family did the Black Hand Society game and we were disappointed in our experience. We have done The Missing Detective's Office, The Moonlight Gallery, and The Bootlegger's Lair in the past and were happy with those so we were expecting a similar experience with this room. It was a big letdown. If you go - try one of the other rooms - this one is not worth it!

Without giving too much away, the clues did not make sense to link to certain locks and one thing that needed done there was no clue at all for. It was frustrating. When we did meet the objective (which was not clear at all) they came in to tell us that we won and we were all confused and had no idea what we did to "win." We felt like this game is not ready & needs some work.

Overall, our family left feeling disappointed and like we wasted $100. We have done a lot of Escape Rooms in the past so we are not new to this. This is the first time I've taken the time to write a negative review, though, as we were so let down by this one.

Escaped the Bootlegger Room in 45 minutes with 1 hint. Had 6 adults and 1 child (10 yrs old). Very fun and challenging room with some easier puzzles and some more difficult. Older building gives the escape room a period charm and appropriateness. Many clues are right in front of you and some are well hidden. Could see alot more additions to room to better decorate and also give some real / false clues. Overall a great way to spend an hour with family during holiday.

The building needs a bit of fixing up and is quite worn down, but it was a fun experience nonetheless! I do recommend at least 4 people for the Edison experience though, but it's still fun regardless of how many you have.

After doing an escape room while on vacation a few months back the kids have been begging to do another. We decided to have a fun day and go to another escape room here close to the house which I'm glad we did! The whole family had a good time and we actually made it out with 7 minutes to spare!! We are already talking about going back to do another one!

I’m sorry to learn of the experience you had with us. Edison’s Lost Invention is an adventure game - NOT an escape room, and the website points this out in multiple places during the booking process. One of the crates did not open like it should have during your game (the batteries ran low - we had just returned after being closed for 6 weeks due to COVID-19.). This was unfortunate that it happened during your game. If you are ever back in town, please do not hesitate to contact me, and you will have a free game on us. - Chuck

This was my wife and I first time any of us tried an escape room. We did the Edison Lost Invention room.We really didn’t know what to expect. We did not escape but had a lot of fun trying. We had Kelly in our room and she helped us when we asked for it and made the experience more enjoyable. Don't wait to long before asking for help.

Thank you for your review, Douglas, and for coming to play! We’re glad to know you had a fun experience with us and Edison’s Lost Invention. It’s a challenging game with a surprise ending as you know. Kelli is a super person, very helpful and kind - thank you for mentioning her. And you provided a great tip for others: do not be too hesitant to ask for hints if needed! Hope to see you back - cheers!

Lots of fun. We worked together as a team. Lots of information to put together in a short time. Great if you love a challenge. We didn't get all the way through but getting half way was still fun. After there is several nice restaurants with in walking distance. Arrive early to make sure you get parking. Enjoy

Thank you for coming to play and for your review. Glad you enjoyed your game! The ability to walk to nearby downtown restaurants, taverns and shops allows our guests to continue the fun (and share their Escape Room Downtown experiences) after their game. We appreciate you mentioning this! 🕵🏻‍♂️

This was my 4th escape room. While most I have done had obvious puzzles and locks and putting them together, this setting was different making it more challenging. Group had a great time in the Missing Dective, but personally I prefer the other style. Beyond that, the person working the desk was quick with the hints when we needed them. The reason for the lower rating was for the style, the clues we kept solving seem to keep pointing back to things we already solved. Other rooms I've done give you an hour, where this was 45 minutes. And the equipment we needed made it more challenging as they were not the best quality. So once we opted to adapt from the items it moved a bit faster.
Also our other group was in the Bootlegger room, they said the person who walked them down did not seem to explain that they could ask for clues leaving many first time players scratching their heads when they were stuck wondering around the room. But again, overall the group had a great time, I just personally don't believe I will be going back.

Thank you for your review and for coming to play! What you describe with other escape rooms is definitely a style difference, what we could call a “linear” style of puzzling. (Unlock one lock, then move to the next lock, etc.) While many escape rooms use linear puzzling, we prefer a more immersive experience that requires participants to work on different puzzles at the same time. It does produce a bit of what I would describe as “planned chaos” at times that requires the team to have a plan on how to work together. The advantage? Everyone gets involved, the game doesn’t get stalled and the scenario feels more like real life. In other words, we feel there needs to be a reason that something is locked or hidden; people in real life do not have a series of locks that, if you unlock one, you can get to the next one and so forth. Linear puzzling is actually a much easier game design and that is why we see it used more in the escape room industry. That said, I appreciate that not everyone will agree on what the best puzzling style may be as it relates to puzzle flow. And everyone has different likes and dislikes. That’s the way it should be! Yes - 3 out of 4 games are 45 minute games, with one game being a 60 minute game. The 45 minute games work well, we feel, as guests are with us about an hour in total from arrival to finish. This also allows us to keep our costs down for our guests, especially first timers who have never played before. Regarding the group not being told they could ask for hints, and that they were left wandering around, that is not the norm and something that will be addressed with our staff. We work hard to provide a fun experience for guests, so I am stymied and disappointed to learn that this could have happened. Hope to see you back to try a different game. All of our games have some very unique puzzling and experiences; none of them have been copied from other escape rooms. (We were one of the first in the area, having opened in 2015.) Cheers!
