We played the Study as a 4-some and had a great time....we did not finish, but we were very close...only the last 2 puzzles remained, 1 of which was unlocking the door. Pretty cool way to kill an hour after dinner downtown. We'll be back.

Experienced "The Study" today... this was my 26th room escape and it was by far the poorest design. The staff member as not really friendly or engaged. This place provides you clues as they see fit. At the beginning we got so many clues that...More

Have done a fair number of escape rooms. Some good, some not so much. NC Escape has it figured out. We will be back to check out their other rooms soon.
