The rooms at the Hour, and the axe throwing were a lot of fun. The staff were great! Sorry to see it being taken over by the Crux, but hopefully the same people will be involved.

We decided to try this on Family Day with our kids. We had 7 adults ranging in age from 18-48. We all had a great time and would recommend trying this. We will be doing this again sometime.

I believe they can do 14 people in two rooms so 7 in each. We were with eight of us and split 4 each in a room. Both rooms are very diferent.
