My friends arranged this to celebrate my birthday. It was a lot of fun! We escaped the bunker! There is enough to keep you busy, searching, and thinking critically (and outside the box) the entire time! It's helpful to divide and conquer.

Great time solving puzzles to escape the room. We did the Game Room which was challenging as this was our first time doing it. We had so much fun we signed up for another adventure the same day and got a discount. Must do!

Thanks for the fun! Great room fun clues and puzzles and Deja was a great “doctor” guide. Enough puzzles for a large group to work on together while solving the room.

Had a great time for the office holiday outing - this serves as a fantastic team-building experience, but more than that it's SO MUCH FUN. Stretches your brain in lots of different ways. I can't wait to come back for another round, with friends!
