Went here with a group of friends to attempt "The Signal" room. Found it challenging and really enjoyable. Puzzles are clever, engaging and allowed each one of the 6 of us to contribute. The staff were very nice and pleasant as well. Would definitely recommend.

All info is on their website, but we had just the two of us, so we did The Signal. Spellbound needs a minimum of 4 people and has a higher rating for difficulty.
