We have played every room at this location, and all are challenging (boasting the most difficult rooms in the city). Be prepared to play in the dark (with flashlights provided) or in a dimly lit room. The puzzles encourage teamwork, and can be solved with...More

Thank you for that detailed review. I appreciate the feedback. In light of your comments, I might suggest you try The Seance next. It has an intro more like what you're accustomed to, an entirely different hint system (that's still self guided, so nobody forces...More

Ultimate Lockdown was a good experience in escape rooms. A lot of fun. The staff seemed tired or a little uninterested, but since this is a self-led activity it didn't hinder the fun. Being at other escape businesses though, I thought it was strange that...More

We did the Séance escape room because we had a groupon at a fantastic price. We've done escape rooms before and liked the idea of no padlocks/combo locks to break. The room has potential that just wasn't tapped into. When you enter the room, you...More
