Went in with family and did The Clinic, we had never done anything like this before and it was ok.
The staff was very friendly, we only had one hiccup with a malfunction but it pretty much went smooth...ly.
We didn't make it out, but not for lack of trying lol .. we will probably try again in the new year.
I did however find the price quite expensive for such a short period of time.

Went to the Crux having done a couple of escape rooms already. The group that went in before us (a different game) was immediately stalled do to a technology error in their room. We went into ours a...nd everything went well until the end. The last room experienced technology issues. Our monitor came into the room and tried to reset it. He then stayed there and told us what was supposed to happen and walked us through the end of the puzzle. All in all we felt very unsatisfied. Loved the puzzle and the challenge (hence two stars) but left feeling like we never got to finish the puzzle. If the technology works this is a great way to go but when it does not - feels like a waste of money. See More

Did the Clara room last night with 7 people. It was a challenging room but we managed to get it done with 30 seconds to spare. Great place and great staff, can't wait to go back!!!

Updated 5* - Just played Clara and had a blast! Needed some "clues" to finish it up, but it was a well-done and challenging room. Thank you for the invite back!

My family took me to do The Clinic for my birthday. Many of the puzzles didn't work, so it became progressively more frustrating as the game went on and the apologies piled up. That's a lot of money spent on something we didn't enjoy. Overall, not thrilled.

Completed the clinic room today and thought it was amazing. Have done many escape rooms in the past, and this one was one of my tops for sure. The rooms were well thought out, clues were clever and ch...allenging. Staff, Dan was very friendly and knowledgeable. Will definitely be returning soon, and looking forward to the St. Catharines site opening soon � See More

We went as a family of 4 and picked the hardest room. It was a lot of fun, stuff was great and gave us the occasional hint to keep us on track. Would highly recommend it !!

This escape room ( Dead Air) is AWESOME! My boyfriend and I have done 3 together and this was by far the best one! What made it the best you may ask?
- 1. Unlike any other escape/adventure room we hav...e done - there was narration throughout the full duration of the room.
-2. Unlimited hints - within reason! The staff gave you hints when they could tell you were REALLY struggling. There was no limit which made it a lot more fun and enjoyable. Nothing sucks more than paying money and only getting 3 hints!
-3. Finally, the staff all came and chatted with us- including the owner- brains behind the operations! We got to hear cool stories about the place and what they like about the room/ how they came up with their concepts. I highly recommend this escape room! You will NOT be disappointed!! Book now!

The best thing we did in Niagara Falls, Canada!! The people were awesome with us as first timers. Blew our minds with the genius of designing the rooms.

Great selection of board games and we really enjoyed our Cruxmas room. Great design.

These are the best puzzle driven escape rooms I have ever played. The rooms are challenging in a way that is different than many rooms and will push you to use your brain more than most. There is no g...etting lucky here, you have to earn a win and it feels fabulous when you do. See More

Great team working there and a great experience. Our first experience with escape rooms was with their Christmas room and liked it so much we had to return to try their "dead air" setup. We definitely... felt submerged in the situation and had many laughs and enjoyed our escape, even if we couldn't shake the "I feel dumb" moments when you know the answer must be staring you in the face. Can't wait for a new room to open so we can go again! In the meantime we may just return to try out the fantastic collection of board games that are calling our names. See More

Love the focus on puzzle solving over blindly searching for keys. Had an amazing time doing Dead Air, will be back very soon!!

One of our favorite escape room experiences! The puzzles flowed perfectly from one to another, the staff are superb and the themes are unique. Would definitely recommend to first timers and be veterans alike!

We are pleased and proud to share the news that our Dead Air game has won a Golden Lock-In award from Room Escape Artists, a review team that played almost 260 escape games across 15 countries in 2017.

We are extra pleased as we know that the competition has become fierce, with bigger budgets and fancier tech.

A special thanks to our dedicated team that made Dead Air the engaging experience that it is, especially the graphics team of Rob Stea and Calvin Leveille.

Some of our great groups from the end of December and beginning of 2018!

Simple Plan was in town for the New Years concert and stopped by for a visit.

They rocked Dead Air with no hints and solved Clara as well.

I also taught them how to play Coconuts while they waited for their room. .

...

Thanks for dropping by, guys!

#EscapeRoomProTip Focus on having fun. Don't worry if you don't get out of every room, worry about enjoying the time spent in the room with friends. Disconnect from life, and live the story. Merry Christmas From The Crux! #thecrux #7daysoftips https://goo.gl/zs4VAS

#EscapeRoomProTip Be humble! If you are sure you have the right answer, but can't get the lock open, let someone else play with the lock. If you can't solve the puzzle, let someone else at the pieces. #5locations #escape #thecrux #thisisfun #7daysoftips https://goo.gl/zs4VAS

#EscapeRoomProTip Practice makes perfect. The only way to get better at escape rooms is to play more escape rooms. Google isn't going to help, and neither is sitting on the couch. #getoutthereandplay #5locations #escape #thecrux #thisisfun #7daysoftips https://goo.gl/zs4VAS

#EscapeRoomProTip Ask for hints! Thats what they are there for! You aren't cheating, you're paying to have fun so don't allow your group to get frustrated because you're stuck on a puzzle. #5locations #escape #thecrux #thisisfun #7daysoftips https://goo.gl/zs4VAS

#EscapeRoomProTip You probably don't have to use items more than once, so listen carefully to your game masters briefing. If items are one and done, discard used items and use whats left to guide you. #5locations #escape #thecrux #thisisfun #7daysoftips https://goo.gl/zs4VAS

#EscapeRoomProTip Show up ready to play. Be 10 minutes early, there's probably a waiver and you might need a washroom. Be sober, and be excited. This is supposed to be fun, but there are usually rules! #5locations #escape #thecrux #thisisfun #7daysoftips https://goo.gl/zs4VAS
