  • Rating: 4.8/5.0 stars (Google Business)
  • Customer Testimonial: “I highly recommend the escape rooms here. My group did the insane asylum and it was a great experience. The puzzles weren’t too easy nor hard. They felt connected and in a way where you aren’t locked behind one puzzle before you can solve the next. There were separate puzzles that once solved would come together in the end. It definitely felt like everything could’ve been intuitive where hints would’ve never been needed. We used around 10 hints and I felt that they were fair hints. I can see why this place was highly rated and I would like to come here again and try another scenario.”

Then you simply hop off where you want to spend some extra time. You can board again at the same stop and continue riding, or you can board again at any other stop. They even offer 2 day tickets.
