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.

    We were so close to escaping the room. We had the clock tower and it was really cool. We brought our soon to be 9 yo daughter and thought it was really fun. We did have some difficulty but almost finished but time ran out as you only have 1 hour to complete.

    Really fun! Super intense, this is the most immersive escape room I’ve ever played and I've done soo many at this point. This has to be my favorite location. John our game master was soooo helpful and we wouldn’t have made it out with his help! Definitely going again!

    We loved the the End of Days room so much that we also tried the Carbon: 3708 later on the same day. Carbon was really challenging and we needed extra time and lots of hints to escape (and we are experienced at escape rooms.) End of Days was just the right amount of challenge. Staff was super friendly. Great location. We would like to return to do the third room.

    Best escape room we’ve ever done. We did the subway escape room. It was so fun we immediately did another one too. The mob heist one was cool too, but the subway one was the best. Our game master Mike was really nice and helpful. Definitely should check it out!

    Lots of fun! The room was set up very well, challenging but not impossible. Staff was very nice and helpful. Booking process was very easy. All in all, fun way to spend an hour. Only one complaint: no markings on the exterior of the building. You kind of have to just know where it is.

    Great experience! We enjoyed playing the online game . I enjoyed these puzzles because they were innovative and challenging. The interface worked well and we were able to easily join two other players in different locations. I highly recommend it

    The escape room was so fun and fascinating. I enjoyed the visuals and the difficulty of the room. Our host, Ryan made it a great experience. I look forward to coming back soon!

    Our game master was Casey- he was great and gave us good board game recommendations at the end too. We did the Moonshine room and it was REALLY fun. They had a really high production value and all the puzzles were very fun.

    We loved it, I played with my gf, her brother, and his gf. We found the level to be easy, and we only used the hint on the very last one where we needed to type in HER. Our favorite part was the ones where we got to interact with the surroundings and the park statues. I wished there was more in NYC and we'll look to buy the other cities if/when we travel there.

    This is an excellent and fun escape room! The puzzles were intricate and challenging. The entire room was very well done and made for an excited hour and a half. I highly recommend to anyone who enjoys this kind of challenge!

    We did The Penitentiary which is the hardest of their three rooms and even though we didn’t quite make it out we still had a blast while doing it! I’m very excited to come back and try their other two rooms!

    It was amazing! I really liked Poppy and DJ Suki. I wish they added Velvet and Veneer because they carried the entire franchise, but it was a really unique experience.

    I recently took my kids to Complete Playground, and it was fantastic! My kids couldn’t get enough of the obstacle course and bounce house, and they were really intrigued by the interactive technology areas.

    The staff are incredibly friendly and professional, and it’s clear they prioritize safety and fun. They maintain high cleaning standards, which is reassuring. It’s such a versatile space where kids can learn, play, and grow.
