Been to a few escape rooms this was the most expensive and the worst. Lot of waiting around waiting for one thing to happen and atmosphere was poor compared to other escape rooms I’ve visited. Probably wouldn’t recommend

Having played room 13 and enjoyed it, we came back to play Secret Lab. There was no atmosphere in the room. The props were almost amateurish. The push button clue system still frustrates me. This room only had a few puzzles in, but they didn't...More
