Escape Mate never fails to entertain. The puzzles and decor in the rooms are always fun and challenging, and their game hosts are very helpful. What a fund way to spend the evening!

We sent our recent Graduates to Escape Mate as a team bonding event. They came back so excited and definitely a lot closer as a group. It was a great team building activity. I would highly recommend it and we'll be using Escape Mate again!
