    What to Expect

    Once you arrive, a dedicated game guide will take you on to your adventure and help you as needed. You will have exactly 60-minutes to complete the mission in your adventure and escape.

    Here’s how it works: You and your team will work together to find clues, solve puzzles, and ultimately complete a mission. Escaping will require teamwork, communication, wits, a sense of adventure, and most importantly: YOU!

    The Heist's mission:
    Your world-class espionage outfit has landed you inside a prestigious art museum. A recently stolen masterpiece is presumed hidden within the office of the museum’s egotistical curator, Vincent Hahn. With the help of your intelligence agent on the outside, you have one hour to find your way into Hahn’s office, recover the painting, and slip away before Hahn returns.

    We were having dinner in New York, after seeing a show on Broadway and wondering how we could fill our evening. We had no idea what you could do in NYC with kids. We just happened to walk past this and popped in. We are so glad we did. Kyle was an excellent guide. We had so much

    We tagged on with a group of 6 that we didn’t know and it turned out well. Escaped with 17:28 to spare on The Heist. Tons of moving parts and not as many combination locks as a lot of other rooms we have played. I would suggest less than 8 people for this room because of the

    The heist was SO MUCH FUN. The room was quite challenging yet we were able to spare 3 minutes from the hour time limit. The set is gorgeous and the tricks around the room will take you by surprise. I don’t want to give much away BUT you should definitely test your wits in this

    I went with 3 friends and we made it out with 3 minutes left on the clock! The set was just so incredibly detailed and immersive and all challenges/puzzles were different and demanded teamwork and tested many more skills than the usual escape room riddles. It was very

    We were a group of four (the room allows for a maximum of 8), and we had an absolute blast! It brought out playfulness and inquisitiveness in all of us, and we were able to really work as a team! The way in which we had to combine ideas to solve the little riddles was truly
