So nicely done, and a great place to take Charlottesville visitors! The thing I liked most about this escape room was that the storyline was about Charlottesville and Monticello. It’s a great idea and we had a lot of fun! I look forward to going...More

I’ve done several escape rooms now, and this one was top-notch. It was very well organized! The clues were challenging enough to make it fun without being frustrating. Would definitely recommend!

Thank you Juno. The last group of the year was a lot of fun to host. We're happy we made your Girls Night Out one to remember.

12 of us went to the escape room today, 2 groups of 6. Some of us had done escape rooms before and some had not. We all thoroughly enjoyed our time in the room. We talked about it all evening.
