The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. The room was challenging but very fun! We had three people, and it was the perfect amount. Would definitely recommend.

Enjoyed “the Castle”. Was well done. Clue progression could be tweaked a little bit but we all had fun, which is all that really matters and we did manage to escape!

I am fairly certain I saw an elevator. Your best bet is to email them and ask about this and which room would best suit the physical limitations. We did the Castle room which you probably want to avoid. Otherwise you will... More
