What our Escapee's have to say...

This was an awesome experience! Our team had a lot of fun, even though we failed our mission. I will be recommending this experience to others, and hope to be back with my family and a group of friends. Thank you!

What our Escapee's have to say...

Was a really awesome experience! We did the agent 22 room and accidentally escaped twice (apparently picking the lock isn't a viable option) but we eventually did come to the right answer! Thank you for the experience! Definitely want to come back and try another room!
