Two couples did wine cellar and distress signal. We escaped both with 3 hints. So much fun, staff were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed reading the hints on a computer screen and knowing what we were looking for to end the game.

I loved the room itself. We attempted the Elevator escape and it was the most challenging escape I've attempted. The clues had us going back and forth and really needed all hands on deck. While we didn't get out in time, that didn't hamper the...More

Lots of fun and very challenging! Puzzles were all reasonably hard, but nothing was "unfair" in terms of how one would be expected to solve it. I had a great time, and our group bonded well together while we tried to problem solve under pressure....More

Went with a large group and had a great time. These guys put on a fun experience with immersive environments. My group dominated Distress Signal, which included an actual fuselage and cockpit from a plane. Highly recommend!
