Owner description: Somewhere Secret is a real place filled with relics, puzzles, challenges, and magic. It is a live action puzzle game that anyone can play. Somewhere Secret, of course, contains a secret. A true treasure map that leads to something amazing hidden somewhere in Colorado. You will have one hour to explore the room and solve the puzzles that lead up to the treasure chest. If you unlock the map, the adventure continues as your team embarks on the scavenger hunt to find the treasure.
Useful Information: Bathroom facilities

This place is just incredible. It's one of the most fun and fascinating experiences I've had in my life. The puzzles are beautifully designed, and the atmosphere is perfect. It's like being inside a steampunk fantasy novel (but even that doesn't do it justice).

If you've played the iPad game The Room, you'll know exactly what to expect. It's like playing that game in real life, which is every bit as great as it sounds. We actually managed to finish the game, and I can definitively say that the last puzzle is as good as the first. The entire experience is a complete victory of imagination. It's worth way more than the measly $25 suggested donation.

The best part is that when you solve the room, there's still one more secret to find out in the real world. We left energized and excited, and we immediately went out to try and figure out this last clue. We're still working on it, and we'll be driving back to Fort Collins soon to (hopefully) find the treasure. The game keeps giving you mystery and intrigue even after it's "over."

Mystery and intrigue are hard to find these days when every bit of information is at our fingertips. Somewhere Secret puts you in a rare headspace of wonder and enchantment (sounds corny, but that's actually what it does).

This place is really a work of art. If you're someone who loves being intellectually challenged and believes that the world needs surreal dreams in order to stay sane, get to Somewhere Secret as soon as you can.

We went to Somewhere Secret with a big family group with people from age 9 to 68. We had the most fun we've had all together in a long time - the puzzles were diverse and everyone was able to contribute in some way. An unforgettable magical and adventure you must try!

This puzzle room was a ton of fun. My 23 year old son and his friends did it and loved it, them my 50+ year old friends did it with me and loved it. And no my son didn't give me any hints. The puzzles are challenging but doable. If you're in Fort Collins or the surrounding area, this is an activity you don't want to miss!

It would be great for fun loving families, a group of friends, or even work groups than need to learn to work together. It would also be an awesome way for someone to ask a special someone out for a special date, or even for their hand in matrimony.
