We completed the Boardwalk room at this facility, which bases its attractions on New Jersey experiences. The room uses classic cerebral puzzles mixed with some light physical challenges (nothing too strenuous). There are a couple of minor bumps, including one of the early puzzles, which seemed disconnected with no way to realize it was even there (you aren't supposed to break things in escape rooms, of course, and this bordered on that). The other was one of the last puzzles that seemed to be calibrated away from success.

Despite these VERY minor bumps, this was a fantastic experience. The room was large and multi-faceted, the puzzles encouraged communication, and we never felt too stumped. Note that clues are delivered at the game master's discretion via television (rather than loud speaker or other in-theme gimmick). The pacing felt good. We're looking forward to returning for the Power Surge / Edison-themed room.

Willowbrook Mall

Reviewed By Patrick W - New Jersey

A good average Jersey mall. Food court is ok but has no normal pizza place, just a specialty pizza place. The rest is run of the mill food court. The store selection is average. It does have 2 stores which sell cheap suits which I have taken advantage of in a pinch!

Gun For Hire is our favorite shooting range. The place is clean, well organized, and safe. Great place for any level of comfort. My husband is far more experienced than I am, but I would feel comfortable going here on my own. Everyone I've come in contact with is knowledgeable and helpful.

Presby Iris Gardens

Reviewed By Marc S - Randolph, New Jersey

Presby Memorial Iris Gardens is a remarkable garden, with over 10,000 irises, 1,500 varieties and over 100,000 blooms over the entire season. Like any other garden, it makes sense to inquire about the stage of the bloom. Visiting the garden in late May, we still saw many beautiful irises. However the majority of viewed irises looked well past their prime.

Parking is available on the street, and I am sure it can sometimes be challenging. We easily found a spot. Importantly be sure to check the weather. Overcast skies with little or no wind will help with your photography.

Nice little Museum with lots of artifacts from this president and of the time. Good if you are in the area or are a big fan or enjoy small historic homes. They have a number of special events through out the year including 4th of July ice cream social.

Verona Park

Reviewed By Rollin D - Verona, New Jersey

Verona Park is a classically designed gem of the Essex County Park System, reminiscent of New York's Central Park and Brooklyn's Prospect Park. Unfortunately, in recent years, much of the understory vegetation, especially the native mountain laurels, have died or otherwise disappeared. This is a problem more widespread than just here; the explosive deer population and other factors have contributed.

The lack of appropriate maintenance of the park, however, is another matter altogether. Motor vehicles, apparently operated by employees assigned to work in the park, have torn up the lawns adjacent to the walkways, leaving inches deep tire treads in some places. This is a regrettable condition that should be addressed! Vehicle use in the park should be carefully monitored by appropriate staff members and adjusted accordingly.

The park is still beautiful and worth visiting but what was once a surpassing gem is now flawed, and needlessly so. Hopefully steps will be taken to restore it to a measure of its' former glory.

Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center

Reviewed By RoadLessTravelledNJ - Trenton, New Jersey

On a beautiful weekend afternoon, we travelled up to Montclair University to visit the Yogi Berra Museum. We are not baseball fans, and only found out about this museum through a Groupon. We were definitely NOT disappointed.
There is dedicated free museum parking available across from the museum. The museum is the building in front of the Yogi Berra Stadium, which was open the day we visited. We were able to see athletes warming up on the cozy field, choose our stadium seats, check out the picnic area.
Inside the museum, there is a Yogi Berra timeline that follows an American History timeline. The cases were filled with memorabilia from Yogi Berra's life, and from baseball in general. There were opportunities to press buttons for interactive videos, sit in antique stadium seats, purchase new merchandise. There is even a theater that looks like a ball field.

Thomas Edison National Historical Park

Reviewed By VacaCouple2014 - New York City, New York

This is a museum where you need several hours to really see everything and they close at 4 pm. so plan accordingly. We ran out of time. You can see Edison's workshop, library, stock room along with multiple other things - like the first movie production site, a display of the original phonograph (that still works) and so much more that it is hard to remember it all. We plan to return again when we can go and view his home in nearby Montclair in warm weather - opens in April.

Sky Zone Trampoline Park

Reviewed By Poconop - nj

Went to Sky Zone in Pine Brook NJ for the first time with my two daughters 10 and 11. The absolutely loved this place. They had open jump with many different trampolines , basket ball, etc. The place is well staffed and they take great care in regards to safety and customer experience. I highly recommend this place. They also give you a discount on admission if you check in on facebook when you arrive
