Reviews for Midnight on the Bayou

This is a wonderful escape room that is well themed throughout, with challenging puzzles and a terrific game master who provided a subtle, enjoyable and humorous presence. His was one of the best in-room game master experiences we've had. We loved playing this escape room!

The game was like a story which made it so much more fun and memorable. Everything connected with each other, which made me wanna go back and retrace my steps and replay everything in my head. Definitely made me feel like I was in my own suspense/mystery movie!

Definitely one of the most fun and immersive escape rooms I've done!! The room itself was very impressive, huge space and every detail very well thought out which added to the immersive experience. The puzzles were very logical but still challenging. I would highly recommend to anyone!!

One of the most unique experiences that I have come across in a long time. If you want to do something different, I highly suggest this option. Very friendly staff, clean and inviting environment. I truly appreciated all the hard work, effects and props that went into this production.
