This was a day trip with a bunch of self proclaimed geniuses. We opted straight for the hardest room, on the hardest level. Needless to say it was a humbling experience.

The lobby is spacious and warm, and a great builder of anticipation with mini puzzles on the tables (and complimentary tea/coffee).

The challenges were tough, but incredibly satisfying, with a strong narrative arc.
The hosts focus on an engaging experience, and are available for help if/when necessary.

Looking forward to coming back (though perhaps on an easier setting...)

We had a really great experience "Lost in The Forest" with friends. A lovely welcome by the owner Gina and the clues to solve the mysterys were great. I look forward to returning with my family.

I have never been to an escape room before but this was really enjoyable. They were so friendly there and we all had a fantastic time! Will definitely be going back.

We booked the "easy" room for the three of us, and we had a blast! Of course, everyone in our party perished, as we were unable to complete our quest in the hour provided, but those are the breaks! ;-) The game masters were excellent and a lot of fun. They provided help when needed, and even let us stay late and finish our game, as no one was in line for the room behind us. (Normally, they would need to stick to the firm one-hour if there were people waiting, I'm sure). We had a fabulous time, and would definitely try it again with a different story line.

We were a mixed group of adults and teenagers - it was a fantastic experience for us all. Only one of us had done something similar and it was a complete success with each person having a contribution to our success in getting out - phew! Awesome evening - thoroughly recommend
