Had a blast with family, kids 21 & 18. Great time, great bonding. Love the staff and the review of the event, what we did right and what was a time waster. Definitely go again!

Was great. I thought i was going to ask them for my money back. Small room. Don't want to give to much detail. The group we had killed it. Really enjoyed.

Mission space: very basic facility, the room felt old and the props were not realistic. Some of the video portions malfunctioned so time was wasted getting clues for a feature that didn’t work. Trey was our guide, made it fun. Overall needs an update. After...More

We had an awesome time. We used the event as a team building exercise for work. Trey was awesome. It was challenging and while we missed getting out by a few minutes, it was a valuable experience and so much fun!!

I enjoyed the escape a lot more than I expected. But it helped a lot with a couple of folks in our group who had previously been in an Escape the Room. I doubt we would have escaped without their experience. Still it was fun.
