We did the Frightful Feast escape room. Needed some clues from the staff to get it done, but we did it. They even let us stay until we solved it because we were so close! A lot of fun! Would definitely go back!

The challenge was both fun and interesting. A great puzzle game. I would say the one small issue was the smoothness of the padlock mechanisms: they probably need a tiny bit more maintenance. I would definitely go back and maybe even try a more challenging...More

Stay away from the Green Turtle. Terrible service every time we've been there. The American Bistro across the street from the Green Turtle is good.

Yes, although they probably will not be able to be helpful in the problem-solving. Still, they will enjoy the experience.
