We did Sherlock Holmes, our first room with this company (we’ve done many in the past). It was challenging but logical and well run. We’ll be back!

Fantastic experience! We did the Sherlock Holmes room with 2 adults and 2 children (14,10). The room was difficult and very challenging but tons of fun. Highly recommended.
