Our next stop, Skeleton Key has 3 locations - Lynnfield, MA, West Hartford, CT and White Plains, NY (coming soon). Today, we are visiting the West Hartford, CT location to escape one of the three rooms that they offer - "Starry Night" . They have street parking and a parking lot available right in front of the entrance. We were fortunate enough to meet w/ the Director of Operations so that we could learn more about the company. In regards to this location, they are positioned in a great area. Attached to the lobby of their CT location is their restaurant/ bar - "Deadbolt Restaurant". This is a great place to stop by before or after your game to discuss your expectations and experience! The decor of the lobby and waiting area has a really unique vintage feel. They have a really cool gadget called "PNEUMAN" which allows you write down and enter any question into a capsule that will shoot to the back and return w/ a response. The staff was extremely friendly and professional. As we entered into the "Starry Night" room, we were instantly teleported to London. The decor definitely went w/ the storyline. The puzzle designs could've been a little bit more linear. Overall, we enjoyed ourselves and were able to escape with two people with some time to spare!
** UPDATE - We regret to inform you that "Skeleton Key" has closed.
