My party of 6 family members had a great time here. Very friendly staff explained what to do. It was challenging but not frustrating. Good way to spend a hour together. Teamwork! I would definitely come back.

Best escape rooms ive been to from all around the world. The decor is amazing and the rooms are very interactive. We did the submarine as 2 people and got paired up with 3 others.

The whole experience was fantastic! We had the Clock Tower room. Didn't manage to escape despite of the so many hints they gave us. Would love to go back again soon!

Great fun! The kids were so engaged with trying to figure out the clues, that they did not take out their phones at all.

We had a fantastic time try to escape our room. We always felt safe as we knew we could exit and enter the room freely. But, it was fun to pretend. We got so excited every time we solved a clue.

No problem for claustrophobic people. The spaces are ample with plenty of space for the group.

It is a challenge for everyone! It truly took my whole team of 8 people (all ages) to get out of the room! I think you will enjoy it and find it challenging all at the same time.
