  • Did mach room. It was okay. Dark lit. Lots of helpful clues. Not totally immersive. Just stock standard. Some puzzles were pretty interesting and enjoyable. Originally booked and paid for four but only three could make it. Not stoked i didnt get my $30 odd refunded for the person who couldn't come
  • Super fun time with friends! The brewery was difficult but didn't leave us frustrated. Caitlin was a star with hints and made sure we never got hung up on something for too long. Great experience!
  • Went there as part of our team building event. Centrally located in the city; convenient to get to. We did the Odditorium room, and the puzzles were challenging from the get go. Our team of 5 were given 60 minutes to escape, and ended up taking nearly 1.5 hours instead. And we wouldn't have succeeded without the clues given by the game master. Won't mind going back to try out the other rooms.
  • It was an okay experience. Nothing great. A lot of objects in the space were broken making it difficult to tell if you were meant to pull them a part or not. There was also a good chance of grazing your hand on an unsecured screw. No set up, just a bored teenager telling you that you had an hour to work it out, to use the radio for help and not to go in the roof. Not interested in returning.
  • I've been to a couple escape rooms before, and this one was a bit stupid.we did odditorium, which I would not recommend to beginners Most of the puzzles did not actually provide Information about the next step, most of the clues were implied.for example,the ouija board part talks about taking steps, instead of movements. The eyelet is fixed in place so the board looks like a prop. even when you begin the puzzle, the way it actually works has to be described to you by the staff. When you uncover a new clue, the descriptions of what you are to do next are so vague that we found ourselves asking for help very often. There's no 'path', it's more like a sandbox. There's no immersion, the staff will tell you what to look for when you begin. There's only 2 rooms, and some of the puzzles have little to no guidance.some puzzles are extremely easy, others are just infuriating. The magnetic books are cool though.
