This was our 4th escape room and it was an unique experience. Without giving anything away, the puzzles were much more tactile in nature than we've seen elsewhere. There is a psychological aspect to the room that is a brilliant tie in to the storyline....More

This escape room was a lot of fun! It's got this kind of bespoke ambiance which is pretty cool and fitting for a city like San Francisco. I've done one other escape room before, which felt a little rushed and confusing and loud (too many...More

This escape room was awesome - a little underground gem, it kinda felt like a speakeasy. The first thing you notice is the ambiance - the room is kinda creepy and the tension builds as you go through the game. The great thing about it...More
