I went to this place last night with two teenagers. We had a great time and the room was very challenging. They helped us when we asked but the clues were very good and well thought out. We had a blast!

We've done every room at this location and they do not disappoint. Just did the Time Machine and it was great, the detail that goes into these blows the cookie cutter places out of the water. Can't wait for the next room set up!

This is by far the best escape room I have done. Well thought out and clues were exceptional. Didn’t make it out but had a great time lots of fun and laughs. Would recommend this to anyone.

For first timers I would for sure suggest either the Attic, or the Syndicate Hideout. These rooms both offer great starting points for first timers.
