We were a group of 4 and a group of 6 joined us. I would suggest scaling back on your total number allowed. 10 people in the room was way too much. We were banging into each other once in a while and it was...More

The room was very well done. Clues and puzzles we're well thought out. A few distracters thrown in for good measure. Host was awesome. The reason we can't give it five stars is because we were given clues when we didn't ask for them. We...More

The themes and rooms are creative and there are lots of fun little details that may or may not turn out to be clues in solving the puzzles. Great way to spend an hour and have some fun with friends!

You pretty much have to book in advance. I tried to put the link here for you but apparently answers cannot contain website links. Go to escapemke and click on "tickets." That will take you right to the reservations page.
