  • Might have been fine as my first escape room but nowhere near as good as my actual first experience with an escape room in Madison, Wisconsin. Having only been to 2 escape rooms, I don't have a lot of knowledge on how most escape room complexes are operated, but with the high standards set by my first experience I'm just leaving this review as a warning of things to be aware of that may not provide an experience to your liking. The primary issue is that the complex has severe space limitations. The front lobby is tiny and not themed in any particularly interesting way. The lobby leads only to a very short hallway with each room stacked side-by-side and no space or separation. There is no buildup or anticipation with a complete lack of unique lighting or atmospherics leading to the rooms and with hardly any separation from other rooms or the lobby, it's impossible to get truly immersed at any point in the experience. While in the room, you will hear blaring music from the lobby and people laughing and yelling from the other escape rooms and people entering or exiting their rooms the entire time. To me, escape rooms are all about atmosphere and immersion and although there is a fair bit of attention to detail given to the set up of the room and solving puzzles, this complex can't escape the space limitations or lack of effort given to providing a wholly unique experience. The only other issues I had were that the staff seemed mostly clueless as to what was going on, consistently stating that they weren't sure where our game master was and repeatedly asking which group was going to which room. Also, it was odd that the room doors don't lock and for the staff to openly state that you may come and go as you please. Really takes you out of the scenario's tension. The only unique aspect of this location that I enjoyed was that when buying tickets you reserve the room for just your group and never have to work with strangers if you don't want to and I wish more complexes were like that. Otherwise it was an entirely forgettable escape room experience that, perhaps not through any fault of its own in being crammed into such a small space, falls far below what an escape room experience can deliver.
  • Visited Milwaukee from Michigan and booked the DO NOT DISTURB room! It was great! The puzzles were fun and challenging and Hunter was awesome and always there to give us hints along the way! Definitely would recommend this for a cool and exciting night out. Would love to try more of the rooms...hopefully we will get back to Milwaukee again. Thanks again Hunter:)
  • Me and my group of friends went there and it was beyond an absolute blast. The rooms were extremely fun to solve and our game masters Kyle and Gabe were very helpful and just fun to have as our game masters. We had so much fun for the first escape room we did a second one immediately after that and even got a 20% discount on it. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone interested and can’t wait to come back.
  • First off we had a great time. It is great for date night😉. However slightly complicated to get to. If you are a simple farm boy the unlimited hints are a nice perk. The museum heist is mentally and physically stimulating 😉. Our game master Aaron is awesome. He has an excellent name and his assistance was invaluable. We plan on returning and demand that we have Aaron as our game master.
  • This was our first escape room experience and we had a good time. The staff was very friendly and helpful. However, there were a few items in the room that were either broken or not working. These items were what we needed in order to advance to the next clue. It felt like we wasted a lot more time than needed, and had the items been working, we would have been able to "escape". Not sure we'll spend that type of money again to not be able to solve it with the information provided to us. We did have a good time though.
