This was a blast. We had a group of 6 co-workers looking for something fun and cooperative. The challenge was engaging, challenging, fun, and well worth it! The fun extended beyond our time trying to escape since there was so much to talk about afterwords - What did we do well? What could we have done differently? What was the hardest part? Absolutely go check this out - you wont' be disappointed!

For my first time in an escape room, I thought this place did an excellent job setting up the room to be immersive. Some puzzles were much harder than others, and there appear to be a few red herrings in place to throw you off. It looked to me like they are willing to offer help to parties that might need more of it though. All in all a very fun time.

We had so much fun!!!

Four of us did the "missing professor" room tonight. The experience takes approximately an hour and costs $25 per person.

Here's how it goes:

You book online and pay half your fee then. The balance is due when you arrive.

Sign a waiver, listen to the rules/guidelines, and hear the background story for your mystery.

Enter the mystery room equipped with your wits and a walkie talkie to use if you want to ask for a hint (you can have 3) and the clock over the door begins to count down. One hour. That's all you get!

Is it hard? Yes and no. You have to work together in order to get everything done in the allotted time but there's no reason not to break up and tackle more than one puzzle at a time as individuals. A mix of the two strategies is probably best. It's also a good idea to have at least one outside-of-the-box thinker in your group as well as someone who pays attention to details. You get a lot of information, not all of it is relevant, but I recommend not disregarding anything until you're sure you don't need it to solve some aspect of the puzzle.

We went as a group of four but they've hosted groups as large as ten. I think four or five people would be ideal but you'd certainly be able to cover more ground faster with ten people. (It would be crowded ground though.)

Don't limit yourself by not asking for hints. There's a lot to do and you want it to be enjoyable. If you spend all your time beating your head against a wall you won't have any fun. Nothing negative happens if you ask for a hint. And don't make the mistake of thinking that getting a hint (or three) will make things too easy and ruin your fun. We opted to use all three hints (plus Tom threw us a bone once and gave us a hint "on the house" when we were really close to getting a clue but struggling) and we still didn't solve the puzzle in the allotted time. (And trust me, none of us is stupid) Tom told us we did well (even though we didn't solve the mystery) and also mentioned that the room has about an 11% success rate.

The best part of it all is that we had a blast even though we didn't get the solution! We spent half an hour standing in the parking lot afterward, talking about the experience and how much we wanted to do the other puzzle room now that we had an idea of how things would go.

I hope Puzzles Escapes expands into a larger space. I'd like to see them with 5 or 6 rooms or rotating puzzles so that you could go a couple of times a year and try to solve different mysteries. I have to say that this was the most fun I've had in a long time. I got to hang out with people I like, solve some wicked clever puzzles, race against the clock, and it was a reasonable price for an unusual experience. If you go out to dinner someplace nice and have a couple of drinks and dessert you're going to spend $20 - 25 bucks a person with tip.

Puzzled Escapes is much more fun than dinner.

Went with 8 of us, 4 couples, after our young adult kids went and urged us to go. It was so much fun and better than expected. Can't say too much else because don't want to spoil the fun of the challenge. We can't wait for the new room to open so we can play again!

8 of us spent a very fun hour solving the mystery.. we were all ages from 11-70 and everyone participated and had a great time doing it! If you are looking for something fun to do with family and or friends you will not be disappointed. We can't wait for the new room to open up and go .. We only hope we can solved it again.. pressure is on! Thank goodness you can ask for 3 clues..
