The Diner

The Diner


After a wild night at a mob bar a few decades ago, you took up with the wrong crowd and now you find yourself about to rob the local diner.  This isn't your first gig and you're hoping it won't be your last.  The boys didn't give much detail, but said the prep work is all set; just be in and out in less than an hour.  If you can pull it off, you'll be in the "Money Honey".  On the other hand, if you mess this one up, you'll be writing your own version of "Jailhouse Rock", ya dig?

  • Recommend 3-5 escape artists
  • Awesome and unique 50's diner theme
  • Good for new and experienced escape artists
  • Puzzles are fun and creative
  • May be difficult to find parking

First, finding parking close to the escape room can be difficult during busy times. The escape room was located on the second floor of a professional building. The lobby area was quite small with some chairs but was very spacious. It seemed like they were going for a minimalistic lobby look.

The escape room was a 50's diners and was very clean. Our group loved the theme as it was very unique. We haven't seen a "diner-themed" escape room before. Our group also loved the puzzles. The puzzles were very creative, fun and fairly challenging. Experienced escape artists may find these puzzles easy, however, this was overlooked by our group due to how fun it was. New escape artists are able to do this room if they are up to the challenge.

Overall, this escape room was incredibly fun and unique. The diner theme was simply an amazing touch.
