The Moriarty Room was fun and had the right amount of difficulty. Everyone had a great time, and we hope to do more Escape Rooms!

Professional, yet personal. A lot of escape rooms have a low-budget, home-made feel to them, which Escape Room Live didn't have. As far as difficulty - With an semi-experienced group of 4 and 3 combined we easily escaped the wizards apothecary without any hints or...More

Loved the Poe Room! We had a first time Escape Room person with us. She was amazed as the rest of us just split up, started looking, hollering at each other with possible clues.

This was a super fun room for us to do since we are all huge fans of Sherlock Holmes, whether the Steven Moffat version or the 1880s version written by Sir A.C. Doyle. Think you can utilize the Science of Deduction better than the master?...More

We did the Edgar Allan Poe room, which was cool and creepy. We didn't make it out of our room, but still had a great time!
