This was a blast! The puzzles are thought provoking and fun. It was even really cool participating as a team with people we didn’t know. Nine year old approved too! We haven’t stopped talking about how much fun we had and we can’t wait to...More

It was challenging and unlike other escape rooms hints are unlimited and do not penalize you. The room concept was interesting and the puzzles unique.

Well done. My daughter (age 11) and friends had a great time. Our game master (Jared) made the bank heist appropriate hardness for them. I don't think I would go any younger than 10 though.

We’ve now done all but the latest room at Perplexium, which is somewhat awkwardly sized at only 2-4 players and we generally have a group of 5-7. That said, my group has thoroughly enjoyed every room we have been able to do here. My favorite...More
