We did the John Doe room and had a great time. Was challenging but we were able to escape and were very impressed. Have done some escape rooms before and this was by far the best one!

We had a great time at this escape room! The puzzles were super fun and intricate. We had six people and we were all busy figuring things out the entire time. We felt very accomplished at the end and can’t wait to come back again!
