We went to the Crux for a birthday and had fun. 125$ for 5 people was a bit expensive and we were done in 40 minutes. Great beginner escape room though.

This room was very hard to start and then the rest of the puzzles were fairly simple. We finished in approximately 35 minutes. They have better rooms but this was a fun room for an easy afternoon with family

My family has been to the Crux in Hamilton multiple times and to the location in Niagara Falls once. All the times have been fun and entertaining.

This was my first experience doing an escape room. And to be honest, it was worth every penny. We had so much fun and managed to get out with a minute and a half to spare!

Me and my family had a great time at The Crux! We did 2 escape rooms within one week and they were both challenging and fun! Would go back anytime.
