We had to ask someone where it was located because the building is an office building. The directory has nothing listed for 302. When we got up there, there was no one in any of the offices and no signs to say when they would...More

We loved this experience. The owners were terrific. Wonderful small business approach. Great detail, great story line, great mystery! We LOVED it! We are recommending this to all our friends and all who stay at our BnB in Asheville. Very inexpensive -- great value.

My grown children and I had a great experience here! It’s a bit challenging to locate it as it’s in an old hospital. Don’t let that throw you. Definitely take the elevator as it seems to set the mood. The hostess was lovely and fun!...More

What a great adventure, my husband and I had such a fun time. You get clues, and will miss things you would have never thought of. Great way to spend time. Must do!

Just the right amount of challenge, time, and fun for our group of five adult family members. Tara provided customer service above and beyond the norm. Highly recommended!

We've been to many escape rooms, and there a few things about this one that puts it on the bad list: 1. Small. The room is tiny. If you plan on bringing 4 or more people, go to Gatlinburg. 2. Simplicity. We felt like we...More
