We had a group of six and had a wonderful time. Well worth the money. This would be a great team building event and a great way to get to know people better. Several rooms. Would definitely go again.

My wife and I really enjoyed the 30-minute "Backward room" last weekend, and Max was a great puzzle master. Previously we had done the Timekeeper 60-minute room with a larger group, and that was also excellent.

Five of us worked together and escaped from the Quiz Show room and Max was a terrific game show emcee. We've also done the Time Keepers room. Both terrific experiences. I highly recommend it.

This was my first time doing an escape room. The puzzles in the rooms are extremely well thought out. It was intense at the end, but really satisfying once we completed the challenge. My friend went in for a hug once we completed the Game...More
