We’ve been to about 12 escape rooms and this one was our top 5! Our game Master “size 17” was wonderful and the facility was great.

We did the "Escape from Gaspar Island" room for my friend's bachelorette party and had a great time. You feel very immersed in the experience and everyone's adrenaline was pumping when we were down to the last two minutes and escaped!
