We saw the latest The Good Liar movie. The theater was close to us and parking was a breeze. The theater seats were wonderful and spacious. Plenty of aisle space to walk and well lit. The surround sound was perfect and not too loud. What a great afternoon for a movie.

An award winning, fully immersive and interactive, group entertainment room escape experience. This is room escape for the room escape enthusiasts. Always private. Travel back in time, explore unique environments, examine artifacts, and do your best to solve the mystery before time runs out. Good luck! HOW IT WORKS: ASSEMBLE YOUR TEAM, RESERVE YOUR PRIVATE EVENT, IT’S YOUR TEAM VERSUS TIME.
We booked an overnight trip for my son's 11th birthday and in looking for possible socially-distanced activities we could do indoors, we came across the idea of escape rooms. Team vs. Time had great reviews, but I wasn't so sure how great it would be for my newly-11-year-old and 8.5 year old. I emailed Team vs. Time and they recommended Gangster's Gamble as a good one to do for beginners (it was our first ever escape room). We gave my son the option to choose which room he wanted to do and after reading the descriptions, he happened to choose that room so we went with it. Well, it was an EXCELLENT choice! First, the location is a standalone location (next door to Quest labs). Ample parking in the back. Private escape rooms (this was a must for us during these covid times). Once in your room with your own group, you had the option to remove your masks if you chose, or leave them on. The staff member that met us was friendly and wore his mask. He took a picture of us with my camera when I asked him to at the end. He brought us to the starting room, explained how it all works and left us to begin. There were 3 rooms in total. Theming was great, lots of puzzles and things to figure out. We got stumped twice and they gave us 2 clues which didn't give the answers away, but helped enough that we eventually figured out what to do. Two adults and two children finished with 2 minutes left and only needed 2 clues! The room has a 30% "escape" rate so were really excited to finish under the 60 minute time limit. We left on a high from the excitement, lots of fun. One issue we had was that the rooms were far too warm - we had to take off our layers and even then it felt warm. And if we had to make a small recommendation it would be that we would have liked to have maybe some props to take a group picture at the end (like "We did it!" or "We found the evidence!" you get the idea). Honestly though it was a great experience and my kids enjoyed it so much they asked to do another escape room. One tip for the grown ups - if you need reading glasses, bring them with you!
