Amazing Escape Room

Reviewed By Yumeeemama D

Customer service was AMAZING BEFORE we got to the brick and mortar building. When we got there, there was no one to greet us and people standing around everywhere. They have a sample wall which allows practice for the various locks but multiple samples were broken, or missing pieces.
I only knew about signing in because I heard someone else mention that they already signed in. The associates were great but they were running around trying to do multiple things. There REALLY needs to be a host or hostess for when people come in. We had never been there before so a brief overview of how this works would have been nice.
Once we were in the room, We were with a group who must do these for a living and they just started going when the door opened. They didn't communicate with us until I shared a clue I had found and not them. They were overbearing and didn't even care that we were in the room. Perhaps a brief introduction and an overview from the room master could have prepared ALL of us to work together.
This all said, I think this is a clever game and would like to return as long as no one else is in the room, since this was our experience. I felt bad for my daughter who was so excited to be there and wasn't able to truly participate because the group in there were savages!

Took the family there recently and only skimmed the reviews on Tripadvisor and for the most part they were positive so I spent the money and took the fam. It was largely a disappointment, but still a positive experience so I'm giving it 2 stars. What surprised me the most is that after we returned, I was troubled by certain parts of the experience and lo and behold, those were exactly the points made by reviewer after reviewer [those who'd left negative reviews] and these must have all been ignored. That is unforgivable.
Let's start with the good:
1 - The park is clean
2 - The staff were all friendly and generally upbeat
3 - Parking was easy and access to the park was simple
4 - The concept is cool - kids love construction vehicles and this gave them an opportunity unlike any other
5 - I thought the selection of attractions was rather decent.

The cons:
1 - It was a very hot day and there is NO shade anywhere. This is inexcusable especially because it's been pointed out many times already.
2 - The rides operate at a snail's pace. There was a large crowd there but even what appeared like a small line of 15 people could easily take 30 minutes until one got on the ride.
3 - The workers all work at a snail's pace. They literally all moved at half-speed. It was as if they had never heard of the concept of working quickly and efficiently. A simple ride like the ground shuttle which should be 1-2 minutes of loading and unloading can easily take between 5-10 minutes and trust me, safety is not the reason. It's because EVERY SINGLE seat belt has to be manually opened by the operator. That's bush league. Most parks that charge this kind of money have automatic seat belts, not these.
There are many examples of this sort of foot dragging that we experienced.
Let's just say that although we were there 5 hours, we only actually got onto 5 rides and we didn't take a lunch break. At $30 apiece, that's not acceptable.
4 - They make lots of speeches and feature signs about "no place-holding," but they do nothing to enforce it.
5 - They don't allow outside food or drink into the park, but they charge $3.95 for a drink. That's unfair. $2.00 is plenty and still leaves over room for plenty of profit. This felt like they were digging alright - gold-digging - and it didn't feel right. Don't charge $30 a ticket and then rape us for a drink.

As I said earlier, nothing I've written hasn't already been written before. It's all in the negative reviews that were left earlier. If anything, I've been kinder because I included the positive aspects of our visit, but it's hard to say it was a thrilling or great trip.
We will not be returning - the combination of high price, no shade, slow rides, slow service, and expensive snacks, make this a poor choice of venue for a family.

I have done everything here - from attending large picnics. To group sports days for adults. Lunch outside, Festivals, and lots of fun with granddaughter from the little kiddie section to the bigger kids section over the years. Riding bikes around paths and sailing little batter boats... Mt.

We took our 3 1/2 year old grandson and spent close to two hours watching him totally enjoying himself. He loved running around and exploring the different areas of the museum. His favorite activity was the ambulance- he loved steering the wheel and turning on the siren. Young kids will really enjoy themselves here.

Voorhees Town Center

Reviewed By tonysproule - Voorhees, New Jersey

The former Echelon Mall was cut in half and the new space was made into many new apartment buildings. The remaining mall space still has many stores and a Boscov's, as well as some Township offices. I love shopping in the smaller space because it is never crazy busy like the Cherry Hill Mall and the people are all so nice.

The boulevard of restaurants is also very appealing. We now have several choices for cocktails and nice dining. I now rin into people that didn't use to go to the old Mall.

We decided to stop by and see the Easter Bunny, because why not? We had a great afternoon. There was some kind of tea party going on, lots of music and fun activities and the Easter bunny staff was great with the kids. Would definitely recommend this place for Easter Bunny pictures, even though it's a little pricey.

Five of us signed up for this. At first I didn't want to do it but once we were in the room I was amazed how much we all got into it. We were searching for clues, working as a team and laughing our heads off. The time went so fast! Although we didn't get out of the room (we needed another 20 seconds)!!! we had a great time and would do it again.
