Never been to an escape from before but really enjoyed this one. Would definitely recommend to anyone. Really well thought out puzzles and the guy who owns it is very passionate about his business and very welcoming, very impressed with both him and the experience.

Visited here with a group of 5 and completed the gallery. Just the right level of challenge with an extra seek and find bonus. The host was very knowledgeable and gave just the right amount of tips. An hour well spent
