March Milkshake Madness

March 2019 Milkshake Madness

Having a wizard in the kitchen last month made for quite the competition. Catacomb Cookie Crumble and Scarlet Souffle put their magical concoctions to the test, but it was Dark Magic Mango that cast the most powerful spell to become March’s Milkshake of the Month!

What Is An Escape Room?

What Is An Escape Room

We’ve been talking about escape rooms a lot recently. I think you’ll agree that we’re understandably excited. Not only have we launched the first escape rooms in Hudson, Ohio, but – in our opinion at least – we have the best and most immersive rooms around! But we realize that not everyone has experienced an escape room, and some of you may have some questions about just what to expect. Don’t worry if you do have questions, if you’re the inquisitive type, escape rooms might just be the perfect adventure for you! What is an Escape Room? An escape room is an interactive adventure designed to test your wits. We could tell you more, but perhaps it would be better to show you. Take a quick…
