While visiting family in Durham, we participated in two escape room adventures and had a great time. Compared with other rooms we've experienced, Mission X is not as complex, but we thought the puzzles were challenging and it made the experience with our family really...More

This was our 2nd time to Mission X Escape Rooms. The first time we visited in April, we did the Butcher Room. It was great, even though we didn't get out. We were excited to hear about the new Candy Land room. What a disappointment...More

Dreadful. From the price ($30!) And with only giving 45 minutes of play I was expecting something that was going to be mindblowing. What a dissapointment just all around. There are many other rooms that are cheaper, give you an hour, and are better done...More
