Of course they don't allow any photography in the room itself because that would ruin the fun for others. They have four different rooms, including one room for only two people that would be perfect for a date. We did The Art of the Heist room which just opened and allows for a maximum of six players.
"PRICELESS ARTIFACTS, DOOMED TO BE LOST FOREVER TO THE HISTORY BOOKS
They've done it again. The Marionette Brothers have struck their 4th art exhibit in as many months. However, this time their heist didn't end so well! The brothers are in custody and won't be harassing anyone again; there's just one problem... The artifacts are missing. Without the artifacts there is no evidence for the trial, and of course, no exhibit. It's believed the Marionette Brothers hid the artifacts somewhere in the museum, presumably for easy retrieval. Follow the befuddling path of the crooks to locate all the missing items. Discretion is paramount, and as such you will only have an hour to discover their whereabouts. Can you recover the artifacts in time to save them and the museum? Or have the brothers been pulling the strings all along?"
The room is wheelchair accessible and our kids didn't have any issues locating the clues. This room was more difficult than the last escape room we did at another company. The other one was designed for kids and it left us wanting more. This room was challenging and really had us worried we weren't going to make it. When we got stuck we could press the button and they would put a hint up on the screen that displayed the remaining time. We used all of the hints. There was nothing inappropriate for children, but most young kids would find it frustrating. I would recommend this particular room for ages 10 and up due to the difficulty of the puzzles. They had a couple of clues we never used so I'm not sure if we did it wrong or if those were just to throw us off track. So how did we do?
With just over 1 minute remaining we escaped! We loved the variety of puzzles and that we did it as a family. It is a cooperative activity, but it feels competitive as you are racing around which means we all enjoyed it.
At $25 per person or $150 to book a private room this is a great way to spend an hour. I highly suggest following them on social media and checking their web page for when they have sales also. The only reservation system is easy and the woman working there was nice. They had a problem with the air conditioning in the building before we arrived and contacted us through email to let us know. We didn't change our plans and they had it fixed and the building cooled before we arrived.
