This was really fun! Well set up and relatively easy although we needed to use the clues. Very nice staff. We will definitely go back but with a large group.

A fun alternative to the usual water park/outdoor activities. Meant for older kids/adults but still fun for all

This was the second such escape room I've done. While this one was not as sophisticated with as many bells and whistles as the first one I completed, it was a helluva lot of fun. You really have to work as a team and you...More
