The whole experience, of the two puzzle rooms I've experienced, exceeded my expextations. The way everything is planned out in each room, which lead to the next clues! I would recommend this place for any person who loves to solve stuff.

The way clues were hidden was amazingly unique and it was really fun figuring out the puzzles given to us. Would recommend this to anyone with the free time and money to do it.

Easily located with a few markers. Entrance between Jetline and Chateau gateaux. We chose the 1845 evening slot for the Teambuilding activity. Takes just over an hour to 1 1/2 hours for the briefing and activity.
