Great experience. As a family of teens we tried the "The Cell". Decor etc was great. Puzzles varied in complexity. Over all perfect level for us. Staff was helpful and friendly. Would definitely recommend and plan to return to try a different room.

My friends and I recently went to the aunt Edna’s condo room. Although the staff was very nice and accommodating, the room was much too easy. My friends and I got out in under 25 minutes, when we were prepared for 50. Most of the puzzles were pretty base level and did not require very much problem solving. However the rooms decor was cool and fitting to the theme of the room. The room could have been improved by adding more puzzles, or making them more challenging. For example not just putting mugs or books in chronological order... but having to figure out the correct order based on another problem. I would not recommend this room to someone, however it was a cool concept and the staff was very nice.

Thanks for your review, 398jodif. We're sorry Aunt Edna's Condo wasn't up to your groups difficulty level. We have had a change in management, and with that we have retired Aunt Edna's Condo. I would like to encourage you to come back and try one of our other experiences for a better challenge.

First time experiencing an escape room (although the rest of my team had experience), we did Area 51 and it was awesome! We didn't solve it in time though, but that's on us. The staff was friendly and helpful.

They have also set up proper protocols for COVID-19. I would return again.

The staff was very helpful. The room was complex enough without being impossible. The clues buried in there difficulty and and how to apply them to the puzzle. Make sure you let the staff show you how to open each type of lock before the puzzle begins.

Had a great time for date night. Room was complex without being overly hard. Make sure to mention whether or not you need unprompted hints.
