It was fun seeing the clues unravel and finding the necessary things needed to solve the puzzle. The more people there are to solve I think helps a lot.

Staff was friendly and gave clear instructions. We did the "Lost Temple" room for Father's Day, and had a blast! My one (and very minor) complaint was it was upstairs - definitely not easily accessible for someone with mobility issues.

Had a great time with our 8yo grandson - he felt like he could participate and contribute to solving the puzzle of the Wizard's Apothecary. Would recommend fewer than 8 in the party if possible - 6 seemed the perfect number.
