I have never done anything like the before. It was interesting and very difficult and for me but we had a great time!! The sad part was that we didn’t escape. Lol

Our group of 8 had a lot of fun with this Escape room. 6 of our group members had never done an escape room before and had a blast!. I highly recommend this escape room for your small or large group. Great job!

This was the Best night! So glad we did Pharoah! The staff was so amazing and was just helpful enough without giving it away! Would definitely recommend! We will be back to try the others!

There were only 3 of us and only 1 had ever done this before. It is definitely an activity that requires a few more team members to search for and deduct the clues. Although we didn't escape, we had fun playing the game!

We had a great time at the Escape Room! The one lady however who is there needs to be more calm, rather than getting all riled up; she didn't help much with answering questions for the tips either. But we had fun nonetheless.
