A fun time! We did (T)Error in the Sky. Most of us had never done an escape room before. We were a bit unorganized but escaped with 42 seconds left! All of us agreed that we will come back to do some of the other rooms. Don’t miss this great adventure!

What an amazing time! Not only was our host the sweetest but she was very good at her job, explained our mission well and in the end we ESCAPED! huge props to the owners as well for making such an amazing experience inside the room, it was exceptionally decorated and really made us feel like we were transported under water. We will be back to try our hand at the other rooms

We had a group of nine do the airplane room (Terror in the Skies) for a birthday. It was so fun and casual! Hints were unlimited, so even though the puzzles had enjoyable difficulty, we didn't stress out, and the room guide was supportive and funny!

We brought 10 VERY excited girls to celebrate an 11th birthday. The staff were patient and kind, even granting them a few extra minutes so they could escape successfully. Thank you for a fun, memorable event!

Our second trip here, Escape on Purpose is so much fun!! Rooms are so well-thought out and keep any puzzle-lover on their toes! Owner and staff are very friendly, and spaces are very clean. Will definitely continue to support this business and gladly refer anyone here looking for a great time. Love that part of the proceeds go to charity as well!

We went to Escape on Purpose for a teambuilding offsite, and it was so much fun! When I picked Escape on Purpose, I did so because we could have some fun while supporting the charity of our choice (Wounded Warriors) and that made this day even better. AND, we escaped with 4 sec to spare. Whew! I'd definitely come back and try another room. Great experience!

My daughter chose here for her birthday. It was all of our first time. Staff was very helpful and explained everything and what to expect. We will definitely be back. We did the uncommon room and finished with 3:33 left! So much fun!!

My friends and I absolutely love this place! We only have 1 more room left to go before we have completed them all! The rooms are SO impressive - It will literally feel like you are in a submarine/plane/starship. I almost can't even believe how thought out they are. TRY THIS PLACE!!

This place was great. The staff came in on their day off to make sure our group was able to participate due to scheduling conflicts. They were incredibly kind and helpful. The uncommon room was a fun challenge and everyone enjoyed it. Thanks for a great experience.

Our crew had a great time with this experience. Most of us were newbies to escape rooms and everyone is excited to come again. We chose this location because of the option of giving to a local non-profit, and the staff was very helpful!

My family and I had so much fun! So much that we did 2 in a row! Kids were super excited and were able to participate all the way out! The staff was nice and welcoming, very funny and patient. Will Definitely come back!!

Went here for my son's birthday party and was very impressed. The charitable business model drew us in, but the people here sealed the deal. The (Un)common room was excellently designed with the right mix of challenges and pacing. Everyone on staff was extremely friendly and helpful, from our first phone conversation through to our tension-filled exit of the room. Looking forward to returning soon for another room!
