This was a blast. Challenging and cooperative with the people you do it with. Definitely going back.

Staff was great! My group got down to the very last seconds before we figured it out! It was challenging, but definitely fun. Would do it again!

I did the Victorian themed room with my mom and 11 year old daughter. It was a great challenge, but it was a lot harder than I was expecting. I was really impressed with how well thought out and constructed everything was, and even though I thought it would be easier it was a great experience. All of us would like to go back and try the other two rooms. The only possible downside is who you get paired with if your group is smaller than the number needed for the room. We got paired with a family of three, and they didn't really work with or listen to us at times so it detracted from the experience a little. The other thing I would recommend to them is not having people who are leaving in the same area as those getting ready to go into the room. The people who had been in our room were standing around waiting for their friends in another room, and they continued to talk about the room even when the guy working there told them not to. Overall, it was a ton of fun and we hope to come back next time we are in New York.

I wish I could do this everyday! What a fun, unique, adventurous, thrilling experience in NYC. A one-of-a-kind puzzle room, which challenges and activates your creative brain and intelligence in a whole new crazy-fun way. We had a great clue master named Ryan, who was kind, enthusiastic and funny, and made the experience even more pleasurable. I laughed, was engaged the whole time, never a dull moment, and eager and willing to do all I could to escape the room! Which we did with only 30 seconds left, as we ran out the door laughing, excited, and wanting to do it all again. My friend and I couldn't stop talking about the experience, can't wait to bring more friends to another room!!
