Overview

Fun for families, friends & co-workers! Our rooms accommodate 4 - 8 players (ages 13 and older). Great team-building for companies and businesses. As long as you can climb the stairs to our second floor, you are fit enough to play: there is no crawling, carrying, climbing or lifting involved. All you need is imagination, communication, creative thinking and a sense of adventure!

One of the best escape rooms I’ve been to. Very well themed, decorated and clean. For those worried about germs, they sanitize everything. Very nice couple who owns it and they definitely put a lot of creativity into it. We will definitely be back!More

We survived Operation: Gambit with minutes to spare. If you want to spend some quality time with family and friends The Quandary is the place to be. It gets you thinking again.

Fun and challenging group activity! Friendly, helpful, professional staff. Even though we didn’t beat the Room (we were so close! - just one lock away) we had a great time. Highly recommend!!

This is the fifth escape room location I've tried in the area (10 rooms total) and it is one best. Great themes, high production values, interesting and clever puzzles. Overall, a great experience. Will definitely return to try another room.More

There are only stairs (the building is Civil War era). But it is a straight, wide, steel staircase with hand rails on both sides and one flight.
