Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Perfect date spot (especially on a cold night!)

    Super friendly staff! My girlfriend was worried she wouldn’t figure it out (or enjoy it) but the team taught us everything we needed to know to shoot some arrows, fly, and fight some zombies! It was very immersive and fun!

    Highly recommend for all ages and tech skill levels! We will definitely be going back.

    Hint giver was super helpful when needed, and the entire experience was super fun! I would definitely recommend coming here if you're nearby and looking for indoor activities.

    We’ve done several escape rooms across the world so decided to do one while we were in Boston.
    We did Panacea and absolutely loved it!! It’s a bit different to other escape rooms we’ve done but we thought it was brilliant. Loved the fact it was in such an old building! Definitely recommend!

    Holden was an absolute legend! He's a wonderful human being and he made us feel right at home before, during, and after our game. Boobie Trap was an amazing room and I can't wait to do The Retreat next!

    The combination of storytelling and sightseeing with Tom Collins made for an engaging and interactive experience. It was quintessential Boston at its peak!

    I had the pleasure of playing Boxaroo's escape rooms in January 2023, and I can say with confidence that Boxaroo makes amazing escape rooms. All three of them are great, but The Storyteller's Secret is truly one of the best in the world. It has beautiful sets and scenery, fun puzzles with variety, and tells a heartwarming story. Boxaroo shows that "escape rooms" are about more than just padlocks and locked doors, but can be true works of art.

    After seeing WBZs TikTok, we knew we had to come. Everything we had was delicious and Anthony is very personable and reminds me of my MA family. Loved seeing the neighborhood and had some amazing eats. We had a scheduling issue but it was rectified with no issues so no complaints on our end. Will be telling all our friends and family about it.

    Life changing experience. I loved every second of it. We had two pods following us and coming up they were very curious about us. The crew was fantastic.

    Trip was incredible! Ray was a great host and tour guide. Loved the itinerary for the trip and each day have enough time see all the things we wanted to see for that day. Awesome trip to Germany, always wanted to visit all the automakers museums and factory's. Would highly recommend to any one wanting to visit Germany. Everything was taking care of, from getting picked up at the airport, all transportation, hotels, all great. Loved it!

    An amazing tour with Omar. Definitely knows his stuff when it comes to the history of crime in boston and beyond. We traveled from Ireland and were impressed with his knowledge of Ireland and its criminal and historical connections with boston. He has a real passion for his tours and making sure everybody is having a great experience.

    Quentin was an amazing captain! He is very knowledgeable and so much fun at the same time. I took 2 of my sons and we caught a ton of fish and had fun the entire time. Hope to book again with Quentin, you should too!

    This was one of the single-most awesome things I've done solo recently. I live really close and am just kicking myself I've not taken advantage of this gem before.
    All of guys from the kiosk to the deck were super friendly; explained to my "new-bie"-self the rules/safety/guidelines of river etiquette and proper kayak procedures. The views are great: Harvard, BU, if you go down river far enough, the Boston Skyline. Peaceful. It's like a river couch you steer at your own pace ("at your own pace" is the key, you can slowly cruise or "go for the gold" - it's YOUR time!).
    ***If I were visiting I would HIGHLY recommend packing a pair of bike shorts and the like to spend a morning or early afternoon seeing the sites via kayak! It's totally walkable from Harvard Square and parking is available as well.
    ***Definitely something to do apart from the typical tourist stuff AND, it's not a time suck either!
    Do it!!
