We enjoyed our time there. The clues were tricky and because our group was small we were allowed a few tips. we finished just as they were opening the door to tell us time was up. whew!

I'm not a fan of writing bad reviews but this was not worth the money...even with Groupon. We were in the Stalker Room. The room itself looked liked something from an abandoned house, which was not necessarily a part of the game. It just looked...More

They still seem to be in the process of finishing off their spaces. We did the Archeology escape room, which is apparently the hardest of the 5 games. We did not escape - but had a lot of fun trying. Would consider doing this again...More

We were stuck in the time machine, it was really tough. Our game master was a little hard to understand so it made it very tough to use the help. Would not come back here.

The most terrible escape-game I ever played (Laboratory). And I played about 30 of them in USA and Europe. Very cheap-made, almost no interior and atmosphere, just the empty room with 10 or 15 boxes (keys and codes, codes and keys). Disappointed.

I played the forest cabin room with 7 friends. I liked the cabin decorations in the room. The hunting arrows and bow made it feel like a cabin. The game was a real challenge because clues were hard to find. I would definitely go back...More

Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up
at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from
the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many
bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where
