I have been to Boda Borg Boston three times now and it has been great each visit. The first two visits were with groups of 6th graders on a field trip. The last visit was with two friends, so the experiences were quite varied. Pros:...More

Have visited twice with friends in their 20s and 30s. If you are a larger group split into smaller groups (3 is the minimum and the ideal number). The negatives of Boda Borg for adults is there is a lot of kids, sometimes lines and...More

This place is a lot of fun. The puzzles range from mildly complicated to frustrating. Each “room” that you enter starts a series of three puzzles, with minimal clues at the entry way to get you started (with occasional clues in the rooms themselves). Boda...More

I've been to Boda Borg twice now, and both times have had a blast. I love the mix of physical and mental challenges. I also love the thrill of figuring out a clue, or beating a room, especially when you've been stumped initially. Definitely wear...More

Love this place! I almost don't want to review it so I don't add to it being crowded. The quests are a great mix of puzzles for the mind and physical challenges. Each quest has it's own vibe and look and mixture of challenges, but...More

I've been twice now with different groups of middle aged adults. It has been a lot more fun than I expected. Better than escape rooms where you work through the same plot for hours. The quick pace of multiple wins/losses keeps it exciting. Nice that...More

This is the ultimate activity for the whole familiy. 18 different quests that need to be completed. Some physical and some where you need your brain. A must when visiting Boston.

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.
