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.

We had an amazing time!! I wasn’t truly ready but I quickly put on my cognitive and critical thinking hat. We escaped thanks to some real team work. Great date night event with friends. I am now hooked.

By no means is this room easy but it’s very, very fun - puzzles range from hidden clues, to multi-component puzzles, to brain teasers the room invites exploration and searching.... Overall of the three rooms I’ve done (D.C., SC and Bull City) this was the most fun, challenging and rewarding - well worth it with a clean place, well designed and engaging room and welcoming, enthusiastic staff.
