Really nice, a different theme that I’m used to in escape rooms but very interactive, makes you think and there are a few really tricky puzzles and rifles but overall we har a great time. Staff also very nice and friendly.

Played the closure room - it was logical, but not an easy one - wished we had more time to finish! A bit spooked by the room though... can be scary, especially if you play at night...

My friends and I have been looking for something other than the mundane dinner or movies to do over the weekend. We came across this gem and had a blast. The puzzles are somewhat challenging and fun. I highly recommend #Escape

We have been twice. First doing JM room challenging but fun. 2nd time did the Zen room even more challenging. You do need 4 plus people as we all think different and that helps. Taking 2 10yr old boys is a no no as there...More

More people more fun. Recommendations are 3 people and 2 people would have to work pretty fast to crack the code as there are multiple tasks.
