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

Our company came here for an event and everyone had a blast. The best way to describe Boda Borg is like this: There are 19 different themed experiences spread out through the building. You enter one room, figure out and solve the puzzle and then...More

My children went here a few years back for a birthday party and my son in particular couldn't wait to go back. It took a few years, but we went this past weekend. I love the concept - multiple 'quests' under one roof, the ability...More

I have been here many times and it is always fun, although there are often very long lines. There aren't many (if any) visible staff and there aren't any instructions. That can be fun, but also very frustrating. A few times rooms were actually broken...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

Interesting concept, players given no clue and hand to be creative. Will not give anything away here but after a while you begin to realize the logic behind the design. Some of the rooms are very hard, and what makes it worse is that after...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

It's difficult to find somewhere that teenagers will enjoy for more than an hours. Each quest challenges the mind and body. It requires teamwork, communication, perseverance and out-of-the-box thinking. Some of the quests are more challenging than others but the failures are sometimes more fun....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.
