We celebrated a kid’s birthday at the escape room. Everyone had a great time. Even though the kids didn’t solve the challenge, they weren’t disappointed because they solved many clues. The vault room was a nice space to cut the cake! Thank you for being...More

Had my brothers bachelor party here. This place was great. A lot of fun. I would recommend it to anyone. It’s not too easy not too hard. Talked to the owner and he was a great guy. Go check it out!!
