Overview
More
We offer live room escape games that provide a unique & entertaining experience for families, friends and co-workers. Teams of players are "locked" in a themed room with only 60 minutes to use wit, creativity and teamwork to search for clues, solve puzzles and ultimately escape the room. It's smart fun that puts a new twist on team building, birthday parties, date nights and outings with friends.

The hangover room was fun, funny, and great for our small group. We were very new to the escape room experience, but Renee the owner did an awesome job explaining the rules!
