I've never been in a escape room, but last Friday that changed. I was part of a bachelor party and this was our first stop, for 50 minutes a group of us worked a series of puzzles. It was the best group activity I've done in a long time.

If you like a challenge and think you're pretty good a puzzles check out the CRUX Escape Room on Upper James, In Hamilton Ontario!

We all had a great time. It is an excellent team building exercise. The staff are very friendly. It is in a convenient location and the board game lounge extends the fun for hours!

Our office organized a visit to The Crux as a team building activity. Half our group chose the Voodoo Room and the other half Aunt Edna's condo. I thought an hour would be plenty of time to escape. Not so... Clues were clever and required thinking outside the box. Staff didn't jump in to offer clues but were there when we requested direction.
It was really a lot of fun, and unanimously our group felt it was a great way to spend the afternoon.

Went with a couple of friends and we did "aunt Edna's condo". That was a great room for us since we wanted to do something that was more fun than scary. Some of us had never been to an escape room before, so this was a great introduction.

out of all the escape rooms we've done this one is tops for quality of decor. They also had a few tricks we hadn't seen. first 1/2 of the puzzle was way hard then it was just super easy so when we escaped it was a bit of a let down. I'd certainly come back.

My friends and I had a lot of fun storming Area 51! We're definitely making plans to go back and try another room!

This room was not challenging at all. There were just a bunch of locks. A group of us have done almost every room in Hamilton and this was by far the worst and had no money or effort put into it. Plus this was more expensive than other rooms, only but a couple of dollars, but not worth it at all. It was so boring we didn't even know it was over and we had solved it. We will not go back, try ANY other room before you go here.

We loved the puzzles in your Area 51 room. We had sometime to kill before getting on our flight home. We solved this room with 9 minutes to spare. Loved the puzzles.

My first time doing an escape room and with my new team. It was a lot of fun and challenging. We 'escaped' with 4 seconds left.

Thanks for your review, mpm40-1967! Glad you had a great time, and got to experience that adrenaline rush of escaping at the last second! Hope to see you back for another experience soon.
