Took my 7 and 10-year-old kids for a birthday party. We had four adults in addition. The kids love finding clues and figuring out how to escape. They did not like the guy in the corner (mannequin) who was infected by the virus though. The adults all want to come back to do the next room. Would definitely recommend.Jill
Please remember to take your age into account when weighing the reviews. I'm 31 as was my guest and we were in a random group of 10 with much younger people (possible teenage or early college students). The room is quite small and people can be rude and/or immature - grabbing onto a vital piece of the puzzle before you can get a chance to look. The mystery itself was alright - this was my first escape room and although it wasn't the best experience, it was interesting enough. My biggest suggestion is to do this with people you know.Lauren
This was my 6th escape room overall but first one at Escape Room Salem. We did the Outbreak and the room was well decorated but the puzzles were terrible. Frequently we found the key without figuring out the puzzle. There was no flow to the rooms. And when we tried to figure out the puzzles, they didn't make any sense. Never again.
We have recently returned to try out the new Spellcaster room, and I must say it absolutely BLEW US AWAY. Without using too much hyperbole, Dark Raven's Realm was gorgeously decorated, gameplay was ingenious, and the the use of animatronics was inspired. We might even go back to improve on our time, we loved it so much!
Completely awesome. We did the Spellcaster today with the kids and they had more fun than I've seen them have in a long, long time. The wands provided were even interactive and necessary for solving some puzzles! For an hour, my little wizards were in heaven.Beck
Our attendant fed us clues once in a while when we were stuck. He was extremely helpful and courteous, completely intent on making our time as fun as possible. Completely hooked. I want to do another one!
This is a middle of the road escape room. Props were better than a basic room and the puzzle had some originality. Often times, clues didn't string together as well as other roomsTaylor Grabus
