I have been to many escape rooms, but this one hands down was one of the best!! The staff was extremely hospitable and the room was cleverly challenging! A must see. We will be going to do the other rooms they have available.

We had so much fun at Pursue the Clue! We tried McWhirley's Mystery with three participants, all of whom had very limited experience with escape rooms and puzzle-solving adventures. The puzzles were challenging enough that I think even experienced folks would enjoy it, but they...More

Unique mystery room! Very interactive and clues were well hidden. Zoe’s torment kept you on your toes and was thrilling to play. Would definitely come again!
