My father and I tried the Doll Shop theme, and it quite definitely lived up to its name, the interior definitely had the feel of childhood traumas from scary-as-heck dolls - with a few cameos that I personally loved a lot. The room was impressively...More

Definitely one of the creepier rooms I've been in, but a challenge that was enjoyed overall. The manager Tye was very helpful in working with us when we wanted to change our timing to accommodate more people. Thanks!

I didn't know what to expect but I found out, it is about working together in order to escape from a room. The clues were do-able but challenging. There is nothing dangerous, but it certainly challenges the mind. It was a great experience.

The rooms are more creepy than outright scary, but there are actors on select weekend nights! Also, check their website as some of their rooms are more scary than others!

Yes. The person there gave examples of kids younger than 10 going there without issues. There is nothing too gory or scary. The lights are very dim and if you choose to have scare actors would be the main things but nothing... More
