This we my first time going to an escape room and it didn't disappoint. The room was challenging, but not completely frustrating and therefore perfect! Thanks for a good time.

The room was really well thought out and had a variety of different puzzles that were not all the same. I loved how the theme and decorations of the room made it feel like the story was real.More

Convenient location (st catharines) downtown. Very friendly and helpful staff. Seemed a bit pricey per person for an hr of entertainment.

We had a great time doing “Jailbreak” - with 4 of us, it was perfect so we weren’t in each other’s way but could work together well. Can’t wait to go back and do the rest!
