At Riddle Me Out, your brain is your most important tool. After all, it's the only thing standing between you and freedom from one of three room-escape scenarios designed to tax your wits and test your problem-solving skills. And you're going to need every last ounce of brain power to outsmart these riddles that blend futuristic technology and old-fashioned physical puzzles. Fortunately, you won't be alone: each room is built to hold at least six to eight players, who must work together to solve high-tech puzzles and find clues relating to their escape. Visit our website to learn more about the three immersive experiences.

While we did not make it out in under an hour, we had so much fun in the Alice and Wonderland room. Do not be turned off by the fact that the website says children over 14. Arrangements can be made so that kids less...More

This was first time for all six of us. We would have done better with a little more instruction before entering regarding the interactive hint panel that was in the other cell. We had a great time. Staff was very nice.

We have done a lot of escape rooms and the Alice In Wonderland was definitely one of the best I have done! It was very unique and had lots of fun challenges. Didn't escape but still had a great time!

This isn't one of those rooms where you gather up a bunch of clues and figure them out in any order. You're not getting to the next one before you solve this one first; it's a very linear setup. I thought some of the props...More

14 and older is recommended by the company. Because of the problem solving required, I would say no younger than 12.
