  • Super fun road trip for us. It was worth the almost 2 hour drive for a fun and worthwhile escape room. Loved the location and theme. Interesting puzzles and locks to solve.

Everyone had something to do and found it enjoyable!
  • Excellent tour of a historical landmark with a true to life dark tale of mayhem and mischief. The tour guides are knowledgeable as well as extremely friendly and kind. I filmed part of a feature film here right after another film, Out of the Furnace, finished filming there. Exceptional ambience dripping with terror all over this place.
