Really amazing escape room. The puzzles were well thought out and challenging, but also manageable in the hour time limit. Highly recommended as a social event or night out with the friends!

Having done quite some escape rooms, this was one of the best. The story is challenging but fun with some surprises around the corner. Highly recommended!

Haha Thanks, Mike! I am glad you had a good time. "Mind. Blown." seems to be the positive response we were going for. Hope to see you again for the next case "A Scandal in Kingston". Maybe we can blow your mind again...
