We had a great time at Knockout Escape Rooms! Good concept and Liam was a great host. On site parking is a bonus too. We will be back to try another room soon.

We did the prison break room and loved it. Janine was an excellent host, we had a great laugh with her about what she'd seen us trying to do and was extremely attentive and personable. Wishing them all the best with their relocation!
