Great experience as someone who has done many before! The puzzles were challenging and fun, perfect for my novice friends as well. We were so close to the end, the game master (person watching over us) kindly gave us extra time!!! So sweet! But unfortunately, we weren't able to complete it...that's how you know it's challenging! Will go back for the other games!

First time to an escape room and it exceeded our expectations! Fun and interesting experience, the level of difficulty was enough to be tricky, but not impossible (we did as for a couple hints). He gave us an extra bit of time since we were getting so close and it was enough to finish the room- that was much appreciated!

We arrived early and thought it was closed and almost left but found they only open up for when there are bookings which makes sense. If you arrive early and it looks just wait until your scheduled time.

Overall it was a great experience and exciting to solve the puzzles, highly recommended!

I have emailed left voice mail called over and over again with no one answering phone and fb message to switch a game date and time. For a week in advance. No response but they took my deposit…their website wasn’t allowing me to rebook and their answering machine was generic it didn’t even say the crux…I said that concerned me when I left a message it makes me worried it’s gone out of business or something is going on with covid restrictions…then today I called again and voice mail fixed so someone retrieved my message and no call back and I see they viewed my fb message but again no response…

I thought the idea of escape rooms is really fun, specially if it's with a team. It makes you think outside the box.

Great experience. As a family of teens we tried the "The Cell". Decor etc was great. Puzzles varied in complexity. Over all perfect level for us. Staff was helpful and friendly. Would definitely recommend and plan to return to try a different room.

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.

Thanks for your review, 398jodif. We're sorry Aunt Edna's Condo wasn't up to your groups difficulty level. We have had a change in management, and with that we have retired Aunt Edna's Condo. I would like to encourage you to come back and try one of our other experiences for a better challenge.

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.

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.

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.

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.
