You and your team get locked in a fully themed room. The clock starts as soon as you enter. You have 60 heart pounding minutes to solve the puzzles, find the clues, and get out. You need to think outside of the box and think fast. Can You Escape...more

My daughter and her friends had a lot of fun in the subway room. Shawn at the Mineola location was very helpful and attentive.

Did our first-ever escape room last night (Once upon a Time). We worked very well together and managed to escape with 17 minutes left! Cannot wait to come back and try another room :) Thank you so much, it was a blast!!!

This is a review of the Subway room... Puzzles were mostly traditional -- opening locks. Puzzles were medium difficulty. They were based on the general subway theme. Location was easy to find with plenty of parking. Lobby and restrooms were clean. Hint system was good...More

I think it is. There's one or two rooms on the first floor but there's no elevator so you won't be able to go to the rooms upstairs.
