As my first ever escape room, this one was thrilling and fun the whole way through. The puzzles were challenging yet fair and the theme/props for the rooms obviously had a lot of effort put into them to absorb you into the fantasy world- BaronVon 2023

All rooms & props are created and constructed by myself, with the help from my family and friends. Our rooms are completely unique and authentic.
