We took a group of 10-12 year olds to this Escape Room. Most of them had been to other Escape Rooms before and knew the drill. They all loved it - the story, the puzzles, the ambiance. Highly recommend.

We had such a great time at our son 10th Birthday Party. Amazing puzzles, kids we're excited to solve them for the whole hour. Adults help was necessary. We all had a blast, working as a team.
