Dreadful. From the price ($30!) And with only giving 45 minutes of play I was expecting something that was going to be mindblowing. What a dissapointment just all around. There are many other rooms that are cheaper, give you an hour, and are better done in the area (Cipher Escape, Tic Toc, Bull City). Thier hint system is horrendous. You are given "cards" and when you want a hint have to use an intercom system (can anyone say previous office building?) and then someone comes IN the room to assist you and collects a card. This would have been my 75th room, but after 10 minutes I just walked out. They even have the nerve to ask you for your ID or other items they KEEP until they reset the room to make sure you dont accidentally leave with a key or other item. The room is covered in "do not touch" signs, wires are duct taped to the walls, and very lackluster and boring room design. This made my other rooms Ive rated actually gain a star it was so bad.
Very fun! No extremely scary person jump out to scare you or arms dropping down from the ceiling. Just the right intellectual challenge we were looking for! Suggest to start from the easiest one and do the hardest one last so that you learn the mind set at the beginning. The teamwork is awesome -- everyone has their unique contribution and we were so excited every time we figured out a clue. Tried Mirage on our first trip. Will definitely challenge Vampire Manor and Butcher Shop next. Strongly recommended!
We ESCAPED Vampire Manor!! With only 8 seconds on the clock! Took my whole staff to Mission X and we bonded and worked together more in that 45 minutes than we did for the entire 4 months of tax season! 8 of us crammed in a small room, then another small room, then an even smaller room!! So much fun - recommend it for any group for team building, but be sure youre got a bright team b/c its not easy. Were looking forward to going again very soon.
Following the opening of this escape room with anticipation! I have been a long time friend of the founder and vouch for the passion and time put into this new project. Its awesome that you can book smaller groups as well, in contrast to other escape rooms that require coordination among 10-12 people. Looking forward to experiencing what each room (as long as its not too scary!) has to offer!
I had a lot of fun doing the Mirage room! There were cool clues. I thought it might be scary, but it wasnt. Just lots of fun puzzles. I had never been to an escape room before so I didnt know what to expect. It was a lot more fun than I thought it would be. The people that work there are really nice and made the whole experience enjoyable.
Fantastic! Ive been to several in other cities, typically on work related functions (SF, DC and NYC) and I was shocked that this was the best one Ive experienced. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for something new to do on a weekend or even as a team building event. Ill certainly be back!
We came with a group of 7 and booked the vampire room. We had a blast! The clues were creative yet challenging, sound effects on point, and the staff were friendly and wanted us to be successful! Definitely going to book more rooms in the future!
Awesome experience! We made it out, but just barely!! Hard puzzles and friendly staff Cedo (I think thats how you spell it) was Awesome!! Funny, knowledgeable, and a cool dude
I messed up dinner reservations for my girlfriends birthday party, fortunately we found this place and ended up having the best time!!
Had a lot of fun! It is a well-designed game and a great opportunity to learn from team work and make new friends! We love it!
