Really fun escape the maze scenario and set up! The owner and rest of the staff were very helpful and welcoming. All around, great experience. I’d highly recommend and I’ll definitely be back to try another scenario!

Not to easy, not to hard. We had a fun first escape room experience. The staff were nice and the price was not bad — I think $30 a piece.
