  • We did the Jurassic room. While we loved the story, the puzzles and the decor we’re terribly disappointed with our game master. We have done many escape rooms, sometimes there are technical glitches.....  more »
  • Visit this place for something new to do in New York when you're bored. Super great to do as a couple and with friends to also challenge your knowledge.  more »

  • It was a fun way to meet new people and spend a Saturday night while on vacation. The staff was fun and friendly. The puzzle was not super hard but was still challenging. We enjoyed ourselves.
  • Lots of great puzzles and variety. The Submarine room was challenging; my group of 4 didn’t manage to escape, however the room is recommended for bigger groups and we could have managed faster if we’d used the helpful hints available. One of the best escape rooms I’ve experienced!
