I have gone twice. Once with 3 high school boys and again with a 10 year old boy, 14 year old girl and their parents. We ALL had a blast! Staff is friendly and the challenges are great!

It was kids as well adults friendly. We had an awesome time.kids didn't want to leave at the end. To be honest I didn't want to leave either. We had some food next door and went back as a family to have more fun.

I’m glad I went to see what it’s all about but I’m not in any hurry to go back. My preteen kids loved it in spite of failing every room within seconds of entering. Our goal became finishing the first room of each quest instead...More

Definitely on a weekday. Avoid weekends. Call ahead as sometimes they have special events planned for school or companies during the week and it can be crowded.
