Our group reserved the Library, which is touted as the easiest room to complete. Concerned we'd escape too quickly (and have it not be worth our money or the drive), we opted for the extra puzzle. After 60 mins were up we'd failed to escape...More

An exciting mystery to save the world! It's best if you're with a big enough group to not have people you don't know but we still had a great time! Will definitely plan another visit to one of the other mystery rooms.

We had such a great time and the staff was wonderful! We booked a private room for a bachelor/bachelorette party. We did the SH library and felt that it was challenging, but also super fun. We made it out in 55:30!More
