Our work crew visited recently. We were in the room where two teams are trying to escape first. While the puzzles were similar they gave different answer. No cheating. It was high energy and challenging. Definitely going back with friends.

I've used this location twice now over the last few years as a team building event for my girls lacrosse team. We played The Showdown Room and had a blast both times. It's easy to book, affordable rates, and fun for all.

The escape room was very well thought out and put together. Mad doctor room was great for Halloween. Deklin was a great host. I highly recommend this room to anyone looking for a good time.
