I played two of their rooms. The bunker and the haunted house. The games are great and the set is very immersive, however I had two bad experiences only because of the staff. Instead of giving you clues they come inside the room to tell...More

Went with some friends. We were a group of 4. This was a great experience. Total fun! The guy running it was also really nice! I am excited to go back and try the other rooms once they have finished with them.

My daughter and I participated in the haunted room escape. It was alot of fun, even though we were unable to find all the clues to escape. We enjoyed ourselves and will return with a larger group!
