Good option for a brain teasing thinking analytical alternative to what teenagers generally opt for . An hour was perfect , the level of difficulty just right

This was the first time 3 out of 4 of us had done an escape room, so we really didn't know what to expect (or if we'd enjoy it). We ended up having a blast. We loved that we had the whole room to ourselves...More
