The greeting and lobby area was OK but really not too enthusiastic by the member of staff. We were really surprised to find that we were joined up with another family !? Is this common in the US? I've played escape rooms all over Europe...More

This was our second time at Hoodwinked, and once again we had a blast. The room we chose was Shadow's Nest. The staff are really friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back again.

Our ages ranged from 7- 64. Everyone participated and helped figure out a clue. We laughed so hard, best day ever.

My girlfriend had a great time and wants to go again! The room was challenging and event though we didn't finish it, it proved to be an exciting time and we are definitely going to finish it.

The experience was great overall, you really get to see everyone of your teammates play up their strengths. The puzzles were clever and immersive, aside from the wonky Ipad that wouldn't let me sign up I have no complaints. The staff were polite and helpful.

This event really requires that all parties work together as a team. Each person has to value the ideas of the other players. We didnt get out in time but we had a great time

My group had a blast, even though we were terrible. We didn't escape, or come close to escaping. I'm not sure if that was because the game was too difficult, or we are just a bunch of dopes. But we'll go back, and hopefully do...More
