I’m glad I went to see what it’s all about but I’m not in any hurry to go back. My preteen kids loved it in spite of failing every room within seconds of entering. Our goal became finishing the first room of each quest instead...More

We're a couple escape room enthusiasts, and while this isn't exactly an escape room it was recommended to us as something in a similar vein, and we loved it! We stayed for three hours and definitely could've kept going had it not been closing. Pros:...More

Boda Borg. I had heard rumors of its incredible, thought-provoking quests and insisted I experience it for myself. After six hours in the escape rooms, I knew that this was one of the best places I have ever visited. The quests are each uniquely themed...More

Definitely on a weekday. Avoid weekends. Call ahead as sometimes they have special events planned for school or companies during the week and it can be crowded.
