Gettysburg’s #1 Rated Fun and Games Attraction!


“We have been to several escape rooms, but this is the best by far. The atmosphere is authentic to the time period; the clues are challenging and unique, and the staff is awesome. This is not a cookie cutter escape room. We drove almost two hours to experience it, and will be returning soon to challenge the other room!”

- Janet L., Five Star TripAdvisor Review
