This place is closed now and for good reason. The negative reviewers below pretty much cover it. Nonsensical puzzles. A terrible clue system. Broken props. This place was only for people who don't understand what an escape game is.

The host came on our room every five minutes and gave us answers! The host I think was on drugs. Also short staffed, and horrible room design.

We went to Novus after our wedding rehearsal and had a blast. I'm not sure if we could have gotten married if we got stuck in the room, but we were prepared to do just that. Fortunately, we escaped with about 1 minute on the...More
