My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed this escape room. The 80s theme was spot on, and it was all about having fun! I loved that there wasn’t a timer to make it more stressful, and the clues and songs were awesome. Definitely recommend!!

Challenging without being frustrating, Escape the 80s is a great way to spend an evening with friends. Highly recommend with a group of six or more — a bigger group compounds the organized chaos and is that much more fun
