I am a huge fan of escape rooms (I’ve done 30+ rooms), however this one was definitely in the bottom 5. The puzzles were incomplete and some instructions were wrong (ie switches say up is on, down is off — but they are left/right switches)....More

It took a lot of different skills and creative to solve some of the puzzles at Save Milwaukee's McSnooty's Gallery of Fine Art. We had a blast and were grateful to get some clues, too!

It was my first time booking an escape room. I didn't know what to expect. The kids had a great time. They were all engaged the whole time. I liked that you don't get stuck with strangers to "fill the room". It's your group, your...More

Well, we bombed...no pun intended, but enjoyed the experience with our family of 5. I like the fact that you can go as a dedicated group, and not end up with strangers. The puzzles are very challenging, and I overlooked a couple of things and...More

Challenging, fun, unbelievably creative! We had such a great evening "breaking into" Nixon's apartment to steel his stash. A must-do night with friends, family or colleagues. Save Milwaukee is ADA accessible, but public restrooms down the hall are not.
