Mystery & puzzle addicts

Calling all puzzle enthusiasts and mystery buffs: time to take your code-cracking, clue-hunting skills to the next level. Your inner Sherlock will love these intricate games, but do you have what it takes to escape?


When grunge was more than a fashion statement; it was a lifestyle. Knowledge of the 90s is not required - all of the information needed to solve the puzzles will be inside the room - but don't be surprised if you leave with a craving for Doc Martens and Beanie Babies. If you have never played an escape game before, this room is the place to start! 


This is our toughest game so far! An eccentric billionaire has been murdered and the police are stumped. Your crack team of detectives has been called in to solve the case. Determined to uncover the truth, you enter his home … and accidentally lock yourselves in. Figure out what happened the night he died before the killer strikes again!

This was a really great activity to do with my family. We did it in the morning and it honestly cast a glow of awesomeness throughout the rest of our day together. It was an amazing bonding experience.

Loved it! This was our first escape room and we killed it. So exciting to solve clues and put ideas together - great bonding for our little group of friends!

I went with a team of five of my coworkers, and it was fascinating to see how we all worked together ... Our team’s dynamics mirrored those that we have at work, but the new setting and pressure pushed us to communicate and collaborate in new ways. It made me appreciate the varied strengths, senses of humor, and ways of thinking of my coworkers even more than before - we needed everyone to get it done!
