My family has done 20+ escape rooms. This was far and away the worst. To start with, when you phone them, the call is routed to a call center where they don't know the rooms. Next, no restrooms. On arrival, curt staff. No theming in...More

I can only compare to one other escape room business, but this was my least favorite. The rooms are small cubicles. Also my biggest complaint is that I had reserved a private room in advance, that was supposed to start at 510pm. The email clearly...More

Becoming an escape room veteran, I have a lot to compare to when it comes to how good an escape room could be and should be. Sadly there wasn't much here for my experience. My friend and I chose the hardest room given our skill...More

I enjoyed our team time, but I feel bad for Ms Dallas who helped our school. She was by herself and did her best to support 50 people. If they had more staff to support teams and made sure rooms were set up correctly, it...More

We had pre-teen and teen dancers working on team building. It was great. They got done with 15 minutes to spare. Not too much time left and yet they completed the tasks.

Had visiting nieces and nephews ages 15-20 and we went for a group outing. They all had fun solving the clues and trashing the room. Expensive for an hours worth of fun but great memories were made. Worth it!

Our family did the Sherlock Holmes room. The walls do not go all the way to the ceiling, and the room is basically square, with some props and a "skin" on the wall. We could hear noises outside our room, perhaps in other mystery rooms,...More

I've done half a dozen escape rooms. This one is BY FAR the worst. The room doesn't have a ceiling, so it's super noisy and you can hear the people in other rooms. They aren't monitoring you, so if you do need a clue, you...More
