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.

Of the four of us, three were here for the first time. We had a great time! Friendly staff. We didn't make it out on time but we were close! The clues were hard.

The puzzles were pretty neat but the overall quality was poor-average; you could easily cheat some of the puzzles (we didn't but it took away from the effect) and there was multiple puzzles for the same clue which wasted our time and the linear effect...More
