My group won tickets to check out the newest room, Brewery Heist, and we were not disappointed. The newest room is the brainchild of the the new owners and you can really see they are passionate about room design. The room was well thought out with a good combination of puzzle types to keep you engaged the whole time. The clue delivery system was unique, to my group at least. After beating the room and setting a new record we spent about a half hour talking with the owners, who were super cool. We look forward to new rooms coming to this location.

We did the study escape room, and the room itself was really cool and had some unique puzzles compared to other escape rooms our group had done. However, several of our puzzles were set up incorrectly causing us to waste significant amounts of time and have to be told the answer to those puzzles (which in one case ruined a future puzzle because we knew two locks had been swapped and we had the correct combo for one of them). It could've been a much better experience, but they need to work on their procedure for insuring the rooms are set up properly. The whole purpose of an escape room is the satisfaction of escaping, or trying to beat a room record, but when you waste nearly half the time on a single puzzle only to find out it had been set up backwards, and then you just get all the answers fed to you because the people watching can tell something isn't going right... not very fun.

New ownership and you can definitely tell the amount of work they are putting into the rooms. We have done all of the rooms and have been impressed. Highly recommended Brewery Heist!! It’s their new room, and the quality and thought put into the room was impressive!

This was my first escape room experience and I had a BLAST! Staff was so nice and the room was a great starter room for a group who have never been before. I can’t wait to go back and try the room that they just opened!

My group of 4 did the study!!! All of us have participated in one escape room in the past so we had a good understanding of what to expect. A lot of the puzzles were really creative, making it even more fun. We will definitely be back! The staff was great, as well. We ended up being about 10 minutes late to our scheduled time due to trying to find parking on a busy Friday night in downtown, but they were super accommodating and understanding!

This was my first escape room- it was awesome! Had a blast solving the puzzles! Highly recommend! Ask if Teri is working, she was a great game master. Can’t wait to come back to try another!

Loving the new rooms. Can't wait to play them all. Teri was great though we didn't need her because we solved the brewery heist without any hints!

Lauren and Monica were super cool! Gave us a great experience. The room was super intriguing, awesome concept and never lacking in tons of fun. Will definitely be sure to visit again.

I've gone to 2 other escape rooms in the triangle and this just might be #1. We did The Attic with 2 players and finished with time left. The puzzles make you think, but they make sense and aren't impossible. I've been to an escape room locally where the puzzle, even when explained, didn't even make sense. The room was nicely done and had some cool tricks. The jumps were fun. I can't wait to do another room there when we find some people. I do wish there was another room we could do with just 2 people. It's easier when me and my husband are on a date night alone. They don't come in the room to give you clues, they use an iPad in the room, and I find this saves time. They will give you clues that you don't ask for if they see you've been working for a while, but I think you can decline those before you go in or just don't look at the iPad until you're ready. Megan was great and the other girl was encouraging. Looking forward to returning!

We have been to 3 of their escape rooms in Wilmington (greenlight escapes) and they are by far our favorite. And we have done 10 so far! Found out they were open and decided to visit...we did the ATTIC as we had done the brewery heist (my most favorite room ever) and we had a blast! Love that it is always private booking and they are so friendly! A must!
