A great escape room! It was challenging, but doable. I believe that only 28% of the groups escape! You can tell that the tests were well thought out and required the team to work together efficiently. Thank you! I will definitely recommend this room to...More

Great escape room with a variety of puzzle types ensuring everyone could participate regardless of their skills or type of learner. The clues are timely and helpful without giving too much away.

Awesome escape room! They had some very creative and technologically inventive puzzles that I’ve never seen before (and I’ve done about about a dozen of these things) I’ll be back as soon as they open another one.

This was my first escape room and it was great. The two guys running it were so fun and hilarious. I thought the puzzles were pretty challenging and the large group before mine didn’t finish it either, but it definitely didn’t feel impossible— just challenging!

I recently attended Elm City Escape for a work team building event. It was so well done, the puzzles were well thought out, and we all had a great time! I would definitely recommend checking it out.
