We had so much fun!!! The rooms are challenging and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The larger the group, the cheaper the rate. Be prepared to be stumped and question your own intelligence.

I’ve been here twice and had an amazing time both times. The rooms are pleasantly challenging. Jail Break was awesome, and tonight we beat the best time on the Museum Heist.
