We were visiting my brother at Christmas time, and we ventured into an old Egyptian tomb. Multi-generational in our years and approach, it proved a fun challenge for all.

Devsda- Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback. We certainly understand your frustration in regards to red herrings and the number of people per clues ratio. Red herrings are designed to make the room a little more challenging than an escape room...More

This is a great family activity for all ages, that is if everyone likes to do puzzles . I went with a family of one teen and four other adults plus myself over the Christmas 2018 holidays. I would go again!
