Booked a room 10 days in advance and paid my deposit online. Received an email reminder of my appointment yesterday afternoon. Showed up 10 mins before as requested and the whole place was locked, dark, and closed! I checked my email about 100 times to...More

After having done all the rooms at the Hamilton Mountain location, we were looking for another challenge! We chose the “Emma’s Disapearance” room, and although we find ourselves to be rather skilled when faced with escape rooms, this one was beyond easy. There were very...More

The Crux Escape Downtown was a great night out with friends. We did Parent Trap and it was good...almost finished! The 4/5 comes from the fact they only had one employee so service was a bit behind (but she was still excellent, courteous and happy)...More

Having already visited the mountain location and had fun, we decided to go to the downtown Crux location to celebrate a birthday. The room we chose (Emma’s Disappearance) was VERY easy and honestly quite disappointing in puzzles — we finished in under half an hour....More

This was a lot of fun. No electronics allowed so everyone was forced to use their brain to solve the mystery. A very enjoyable activity.More

Thanks for the review, geoorl! Glad you had a good time. We suggest no electronics so you're forced to connect on a very analog level with your friends or family. You can play X-Box games at home, you can interact together at The Crux! Hope...More

The place itself was very unassuming, but don't let that trick you! Crux escape rooms isn't a shoddy, janky escape room with a few lockboxes and clues. It's a beautifully set up, interactive, creative endeavor that my partner and I had so much fun with...More

We had a great time in the Hamilton Downtown Crux Rooms! We ended up getting the 1st and 2nd best times of their two rooms. I would say the 5th star would go to them updating some of their props and upkeep, but otherwise our...More

I've done around 10 escape rooms, 4 being with the Crux (Hamilton). The staff is always extremely outgoing and super informative/ positive. All 4 of their rooms have been fun and interesting. Would definitely recommend going to one of them if you get the opportunity.
