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.

Four of us did the Initiative and had so much fun! There were great puzzles, a fun theme, and great staff to go through it with. Check them out! I am so looking forward to their next room!

I went with friends to this escape room, and had a great time. The puzzles were challenging and fair for our group, which was smaller than the maximum amount of people. I would recommend this to other groups.

This was my first escape room. Not knowing what to expect, I was delightfully surprised how fun and challenging it was. Each puzzle was interesting, but not simply handed to you, and I left with a real sense of accomplishment. The rooms conclusion was super...More
