SO MUCH FUN! This was our first escape experience! We did The Study on a Saturday at the 7:30pm time. We booked that morning, and didn't have anyone else in the room with us (I'm sure that won't last for long!).Leah W.
When we came in, we signed a waiver and were told some more about the escape rooms. You can ALWAYS leave the room, use the restroom, etc. The hour long timer won't stop, but you can get out (for all you claustrophobes out there!).
The young man who walked us in and told us the backstory of our room was awesome! He was excited and really got us into the story. He told us that the moderator will give hints at their discretion (which we ended up needing - a lot!). If we were close, they probably wouldn't give us hints. If we were way off, they would help us out. We never asked for help, but you can.
Trying not to give anything away about the room, we weren't sure we could go any further at one point. That we'd be breaking the rules by doing something. The moderator and guy who greeted us came in and explained that we COULD have done what we skipped, and they were kind enough to give us another five minutes. We still couldn't solve the room, but we had a darn good time trying.
I can't wait to go back to try the other three rooms!
PARKING - street parking, free after a certain time. We found easy parking down one block and across the street.
