This escape room did not disappoint us! It was so much fun and challenging and really had all of us thinking together as a team! Our host, Will, was great and gave us really good clues! When we come back we will definitely book another room!Jeanette E. (TripAdvisor)

Along with the immersive and beautiful room, comes a slew of thought provoking puzzling. Each item leads from spot to spot, but in a subtle way, allowing for quite a few moments of revelation. While building toward the meta puzzle, new revelations are found, and each step is satisfying in it’s feedback when solved. All details of the room are woven into the puzzling, and finding small details or prop interactions were very enjoyable. The reveal near the end is exciting, and the climax feels appropriate and fun. One puzzle in particular is tactile and feels great when solving, but also helps build a creepier atmosphere once it has been completed.Escape Room Adventurer
