I've done a few escape rooms in several cities and I've always enjoyed the experience. Bear Towne Escape Room is no exception. The room was creative, challenging and a lot of fun. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

We choose the Deadly Die-agnosis room as a double date with some friends. We thoroughly enjoyed it!! We escaped with 20 minutes to spare. The room was very well put together. We will more than likely be doing another room with Bear Towne again.

The room we were in had some items with fake blood on them. There were no scary noises or anything that jumped out at us.
