Search the room fully and quickly, leave nothing untouched upon entering because you'll realize how quickly time passes while you're working hard to discover the next clue. Jeff (our guide) was there to help if we needed it and did so well in making sure...More

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.
