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.

This has been a go to spot for my toddler for sometime. He loves the different play areas, especially the painting, trains, grocery store, and pirate ship. It was an obvious choice for his birthday party and they did an excellent job! They tailored the party to what we wanted and had face painting and a private, personalized puppet show! My son and his friends had an amazing time!

Went here for Father's Day. Wasn't a bad visit but the place is overly simple, which is to be expected based on price. There are a few old trains out, that you can't go in most of them. We took a ride on the train, but that was fairly unpleasant because of the heat (and lack of A/C in the cars). There really isn't anything of any interest to see out of the windows and there was no one narrating anything or saying anything about the trains. There wasn't even anyone other than the conductor to answer questions and he seemed polite, but disinterested in doing so. Was a bit of a bummer, actually.

Morristown National Historical Park, Washington Headquarters and Museum

Reviewed By Beverly D - Morris Plains, New Jersey

A brand new museum was unveiled at Washington's Headquarters over Presidents Day Weekend. In addition to the Ford Mansion, just a few steps away, there is now a museum which has a film and War Gallery. along with another room containing artifacts, the new Discovery Center focuses on what life was like during the Revolution for people living in NJ. Exhibits cover musket firing, desertions, food scarcity, loyalty oaths, to name a few. Many of the exhibits are interactive, which appeal to kids and adults alike, there are costumes to try on and there is even an authentic door from an 18th century Morristown jail. Add a visit to Jockey Hollow (approximately 3 miles south), site of the winter encampment of 1779-1780, and you can experience the Revolutionary War as never before. Good for school-age children & adults and it's free.

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.

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.

Paper Mill Playhouse

Reviewed By JoelNunez1555 - Springfield, New Jersey

Casts and production values are topnotch. I've seen The Bodyguard, The Producers, and Mary Poppins here and I was floored by how good the shows were. Hit shows get good crowds so book early. Parking is easy, and the theater is close to the train station.
