  • Took the Family with 3 generation represented and was in the Wizard's Apothecary room. Fun was had by all.  more »
  • We tried the Wizard Room with our kids. Interesting puzzles that were challenging but solvable. Nice props and setting. Would definitely try the other rooms. A nice thing to do with the family at....  more »

  • One thing they do not tell you is that parking is atrocious at this location. Everything is paid parking, even on the street and good luck finding even that. We ended up finding a parking garage and walking a few blocks back to the building. The building is not clearly labeled, we actually passed it twice until we realized where it was. All this made us late for our scheduled room, despite arriving to the area 20 min early. We only had 30 min by the time we got there which was including our instructions. It was impossible to complete in such a time crunch. I was underwhelmed by this visit and disappointed I spent so much to reserve a room. Their props were cool and the concept is great so I'm still giving a middle ground review. I just think their faqs should suggest where to park to avoid people arriving late and cutting into their time. I did extensive research prior to booking and nothing suggested parking would be an issue.
  • My group of 4 did the Wizards Apothecary and were pretty disappointed. I have done at least 8 escape rooms and this one (which the difficulty was labeled as 5/10) was harder than any other one in the past. I know you're probably reading this and saying, "you had 4 people, what did you expect?" However, because of the unclear instructions, we couldn't even get started correctly. The moderator of our room was unprofessional. After she hurried through the instructions before we began, she made a joke, saying, "I've done eight of these today. It's 9:45pm guys, I'm trying to get out of here." Because she had hurried through the instructions, we didn't understand how to ask for hints, which really delayed us in the rest of the process. On top of that, a few of the steps in the process were just mind boggling. I am not going to go into details as that is against the rules, but one of the members in the group also has done a ton of escape rooms, and we both had our jaws drop when they told us the steps that we didn't get to to complete the room. If I had to give some advice before visiting this location, it would be to maybe bring a FULL group, and clarify with the moderator before starting the room on how to ask hints, as it was very different from other escape rooms I've gone through. If that had been clear, maybe our experience would've been more positive. The room itself and location was incredibly decorated, and I think if we'd had a better moderator, we would've been able to come to the solution.
