it was really fun to solve the mystery but I thought the escape room would be more similar to the ones where you need to find the door rather than just solving the mystery to save dr carter.

Thanks Compass :) Its true, we don't lock players in the room. We decided to go more for a puzzle and mystery game style. However our next room this spring may be more the style you mentioned. Cheers! Have a great New Years-

My friends and I had a wonderful time at Hourglass Escapes. Escaping the Tomb of the Mad Pharaoh was a really cool set of puzzles. We only had 4 people, and many more than that might make the room a bit crowded.

We had a lot of fun. This one was tough. We would come back to try another one. Parking was difficult.

Hi Northstar, I'm sad to hear you had a bad experience, please email me or call me so we can make this better. If I know which showtime and date, I can retrain that particular game master as well.

The puzzles were okay. I really didn’t like that a staff member stayed in the room during our time. Even chimes in without much prodding.More

We had a group of 8 people, all young adults go through the Ghostly Galleon. It was a fun challenge. I was a great time, I would recommend it for any group looking to have fun and challenge themselves!
