Player Review

"We did the Experiment room. It is obvious that a lot of thought has gone into both the puzzles and tying the puzzles to the room theme. Several were challenging, a couple were really beautiful in their design (and one of the more obscure ones did have us requiring a hint) and we escaped with about 9-10 minutes remaining. We would have gone back if it worked for time. Recommended." Vorlina (TripAdvisor)

Player Review

"We brought a group of 6th graders for our son's 12th birthday. They all had a great time sorting out the puzzles. The puzzles were actually kinda cool. While there's still a heavy reliance on locks in general but I didn't mind at all. Our host was very encouraging and helpful. With clues they were ultimately able to complete the Mona Lisa Heist.

Player Review

"I've done dozens of escape rooms, and 'The Vanishing Act' is one of the best. Both main sets of puzzles were nicely diverse and allowed everyone to work on something different if desired, and the final puzzle brought everything together seamlessly. The story was well-developed, hints were integrated well without breaking immersion, and everything seemed fair without being easy!" Brian (Yelp)
