Wayyy to easy
Sep. 2020 • Friends
My friends and I recently went to the aunt Edna’s condo room. Although the staff was very nice and accommodating, the room was much too easy. My friends and I got out in under 25 minutes, when we were prepared for 50. Most of the puzzles were pretty base level and did not require very much problem solving. However the rooms decor was cool and fitting to the theme of the room. The room could have been improved by adding more puzzles, or making them more challenging. For example not just putting mugs or books in chronological order... but having to figure out the correct order based on another problem. I would not recommend this room to someone, however it was a cool concept and the staff was very nice.

First Time Visitor

First time experiencing an escape room (although the rest of my team had experience), we did Area 51 and it was awesome! We didn't solve it in time though, but that's on us. The staff was friendly and helpful.

They have also set up proper protocols for COVID-19. I would return again.

Area 51
Feb. 2020 • Family
The staff was very helpful. The room was complex enough without being impossible. The clues buried in there difficulty and and how to apply them to the puzzle. Make sure you let the staff show you how to open each type of lock before the puzzle begins.

Area 51 Escape

Had a great time for date night. Room was complex without being overly hard. Make sure to mention whether or not you need unprompted hints.

Heart Pounding Fun
Feb. 2020 • Couples
Great fun! Solve the riddles, figure out the combinations and open the locks. Sounds easy, but it challenges you till the last second. The staff are great at feeding you clues throughout, so you don't get too frustrated. Make sure you bring your phone - you'll need a stronger flashlight than what they provide, and your glasses.

We did The Cell on New Year's Eve afternoon. While we didn't "escape", we had a fabulous time. Staff were super friendly and helpful. Can't wait to try again....or maybe another room!!!

Fun room, staff gave hint that threw us completely off
Dec. 2019 • Family
I've been to the Crux several times before and have had good experiences. However this time the staff member gave a "hint" and told us to go in a completely different direction for one of the clues. After 25 minutes of not solving that clue, we found out that we were originally on the right
track and the clue that was given sent us unneedlessly in the wrong direction for that whole time. I would have expected that because they can see us and hear us they would correct the error. I will patronize other establishments where I've had great experiences rather than return here again.

Escaped the Guardians of the Gold, great fun! Appreciated the symbols matching the codes to the keys, saving some time and frustration not seen at other escape rooms. Host was friendly and helpful.

Sorry, but the host should not be talking to ONE team the entire time during a battle, let the teams play unless they ASK for a hint! Terrible, would not recommend!
