‪My partner and I took our two sons here last weekend for a Sunday afternoon. We have been 3x before and always enjoyed it. Masks are required at this time and there are several signs throughout the facility.

My youngest son was asked 2x to pull the mask back above his nose when coming out of a Quest by the same staff member, Mikey. My partner and I kept reminding him, but as a child having fun will do, did not focus on his mask while we were Questing.

Mikey did not correct other children or families who were disregarding the mask rule and followed up around the facility. After a 2x reminder, we were asked to go upstairs (which we did) to talk to a manager, who informed us we had to leave because we did not follow the rules.

It is clear to me that Mikey singled us out because we were a gay couple. Though the Quests are fun and physically and mentally challenging, the discrimination has ruined this activity for my family and I. I encourage all those who are not white and heterosexual to beware of this place.‬

‪There is nothing else in the world like this place. Hard to explain but it is equal parts escape room, puzzle solving, and physical challenges. In description, it sounds like you will have some significant downtime as you wait for rooms to become available, but that is not the case. At the absolute most, you will have to wait 2 minutes to get into a room. If that's too long...go do a different room and come back. It's fast paced and each room is a unique challenge. We did a 4-hour passport and that time FLEW by. Cannot wait to try it again if we're ever back in Boston.‬

‪I’m so happy Boda Borg is open again. There is no place I love more. The combination of physical and mental challenges is just perfect. It’s not like anything you’ve experienced before. Try it!‬

‪This place is so much fun. I am 65 with a bad knee and cannot wait to go back. The staff is friendly and helpful. I definitely recommend this place.

Boda Borg is a quest game. There are about 20. Each game contains 2-4 rooms. You do not know how many rooms until you hit the last one.

Games are color coded by physical activity required. But do not fear; even I could do most black (most physical) rooms.

As you solve the riddle in a room, you proceed to the next room. But, if you fail a room, you start from the beginning. Flowing through the rooms is relatively quick; it is possible to go through a room in a minute or two -- although some may take a bit longer.

My understanding is that they change the quests periodically so it does not get stale.

Buy the full day pass. You will not be bored. We were there from 10 am to 5 pm and would have stayed longer if the place had been open.

Have fun!‬

‪I have been to Boda Borg twice now, once with friends and and again with my siblings. Loved it! It kind of has escape room vibes, but is more fast paced. Also, you don't have to just hang around if you're "stuck," it's easy to take a break from a quest, try another, and come back later. One HUGE recommendation (especially if you're going to try a lot of the physical quests and stay for a few hours): KNEE PADS! Omg, such a life saver. I didn't wear them the first time and regretted it. Wore them the second time and my experience was much improved. A surprisingly large amount of the quests involve crawling or climbing, so they really helped. Other general tips for first-timers:

1) Start with farm or rats to get accustomed to questing.
2) You MUST be in a group of 3 to 5. If you are in a large group you will need to split up, and if you are in a smaller group you will not be able to complete the quests.
3) Get an all day pass for sure. 2 hours is not enough, even if you go at a less busy time. I would recommend planning to spend at least a half day there, but depending on how much fun you're having you may spend more or less time.
4) After 6 PM parking is free, but nearby parking on the street and in garages is reasonably priced.
5) There are a few restaurants within walking distance, and if you get the all day pass you can leave and come back. I'd recommend leaving for lunch or dinner and then coming back after if you want. Their cafe is limited in options.
6) If you are worried because you are not physically fit, rest assured that you will likely be fine for most quests, but may not be able to complete some (such as bootcamp and superbanan).
7) GO! This place is super unique and fun, I have enjoyed it both times I have gone.‬

‪I didn't really know what to expect, but our group (6 cousins ages 16-23, plus one mom/aunt) had a blast.  We had to leave after 5 hours to get home for dinner, but everyone agreed that more than 5 hours would have probably been too much (and that two hours would have been way too short). Every staff member we interacted with was super nice and very engaged.  The place was very clean; it was easy to forget that you were constantly touching things that probably hundreds of other people had already touched just that day. One thing to note that is there is NO seating in the hallways or in the rooms. So you are standing or sitting on the floor. And the whole thing is an experience in repeated failing and waiting, so if those things are a challenge, be prepared for growth opportunities.  

Things that became clear once we were there and I hope are helpful to others:
1. The "cafe" has an assortment of packaged cheese/crackers, subs, and salads for $7-8 which were pretty decent. ("Cafe" is a pretty big overstatement - it was just a refrigerator case, and the same person who took money for admission took money for cafe purchases.)  There is free water in the large cafe seating area, but they only have tiny tiny little conical cups.  There are signs on the tables saying no outside food; I didn't know about that until we got there and I had brought food for myself and one child with dietary restrictions, but when a staff member came over to ask me to put the outside food away, she was very discrete and polite. Looking at the website later I found where it says you're supposed to contact them if you have dietary restrictions, but I'm not sure what they would do since everything is prepackaged.

2. It took some research online to figure out that there are three levels of quests, indicated by the color of the door to the first room. Green are mental challenges only; some are trivia-based, while others are puzzle-based. Red quests involve things like crawling, climbing a ladder, or getting yourself out of a 4 foot tall box through a hole in the top just by hoisting yourself up with your arms. One person in our group almost couldn't make it out of one of the rooms because of mobility issues. If you have someone in your group who has mobility challenges or is particularly overweight, I would ask a staff member to suggest which red rooms would be appropriate; in at least one red quest (Sphinx), only one person needed to do anything more than walk.  Black quests involve strenuous (and I mean strenuous) physical activity; our four athletic young adults had a blast in the black rooms (Mission Impossible come to life), but from the descriptions of what they had to do, there's no way our less athletic young adults or the accompanying mom/aunt (me) would have been able to participate.

3. They provide FREE lockers and combination locks.  Nice touch.

We went on Thursday, January 2, when the majority of public schools were back in session. According to a staff member, it was a "lighter" day.  My group stuck to red and green rooms and probably 50% of the time we could head back into the quest as soon as it reset after booting us out (about 30 seconds). The rest of the time we either had to wait for a group to finish that was already in the first room (max of 3 minutes), or there was a group in front of us waiting to go in.  The lines really wax and wane, and eventually we learned to just go find another room if there was more than one group ahead of us.  It was pretty fun to be able to try something, fail, and then almost immediately try again, but I would think that if the waiting times had been at all longer, the fun factor would have decreased dramatically.

It usually took us 3-4 tries to figure out each room, but each quest is 2-4 rooms, so it might take us 15 separate attempts to make it all the way through. In the five hours we were there, we finished 3 red rooms and 3 green rooms, and attempted 2 other red rooms which we gave up on.  The other group spent the first two hours on 3 black rooms, one of which they finished and two of which they didn't.

The only bummer, and this was a HUGE bummer, was that you could only enter a room as a group of 3, 4, or 5 people.  So that meant our group of 7 could only split 3 and 4; this was fine at the start when 4 wanted to do black rooms and 3 didn't, but it became awkward later on when everyone was doing red rooms and 5 wanted to go one way and the 2 wanted to go a different way (you can re-group at any time).  The cousins have crushed a number of escape rooms together as a single group (a trip to Boda Borg was to try to up the challenge), and it was a bummer that they *had* to split up. In many instances, you really did need three separate individuals in a room, but many of the red and green rooms could easily have accommodated an extra person or two (although it might get squishy).

Overall, I highly recommend Boda Borg!‬

‪I went with a group of 5 fit adults raining from 18-50 on a Saturday from 12-2. We have been to 6-10 Escape rooms across the US. One of us has done at least 15. This is very different but along the same lines. You can buy a ticket for all day or just a specific block of time. That is indicated in the color of your wristband. There is a free locker if you have anything to store. There are bathrooms, a cafe, a coat rack, a large area full of tables and free water dispenser with paper cups if needed. You are taken into a room where the concept is explained. There are many themes and each theme may have up to about 5 rooms. You must solve room 1 to get to room 2 and room 2 to advance to room 3. There is a pretty short time limit in each room. You are not expected to solve a room on the 1st 5 or so tries. If you make it to the end of a theme, you can stamp your passport to show you solved that theme. There are 3 levels of physical involvement and those are indicated by the color of the door. The green door rooms use your wits only The red doors have some physical activities and the black doors require physical ability. I think we did 2-3 black doors including Alcatraz, Platoon and possibly the Rat one. Mostly that required crawling which was surprisingly cardio but in Platoon, we had to climb up something in the dark after crawling. It was no problem but not something you do every day! All 5 of us LOVED this place! The cool thing is, there were several we never even tried and 2 we didn't ever solve. So, unlike regular escape rooms, we can come back and it would still be fabulous. Also, the rooms change a little between each attempt so if you guessed a riddle in room 3 of a theme but guessed wrong, you have to start again at room 1 and get back to room 3 and then the riddle would be different. You do need to wear sneakers and I would not bring anything you had to carry. I put my phone in a zippered pocket and it was fine. Definitely wear athletic or athleisure clothes. You may get sweaty. I was intimidated by the upper body strength in the promo photos out front and online and by the waiver however, I had no issues and we didn't even make it to the room with the upper body strength challenge. You can easily sit anything out and catch up with your group within 5 minutes so do not let those photos intimidate you. 2 hours was awesome. I kind of wanted a little more but I was also pretty tired after 2 hours. I hope we go back.The only negatives are that you do have to really watch for the rapid fire door opening. I wish they would put tape on the floor to indicate the door swing hazards. I saw several people get hit. It would have been a little more comfy with a cooler temp. Lots of teenagers sweating in there so, the first couple of minutes had a noticeable teen funk in the air. Not bad enough to be a deterrent but something they could easily eliminate. GO to this place and have a blast!!!!‬

‪We went as a family of five (all adults). We had a blast. Spent a good portion of the day there. Well worth the extra money to get a full day pass over the two hour pass. I felt there was a good mix of rooms from fairly easy to impossible, physical and mental. We got 15 stamps for the day, not too shabby. Also a few bruises, lol. All in all we had a great time.‬

‪My kids enjoy the quests. Checkin process took a long time even though we had filled everything online. Two groups cut in front of us and the desk staff (two young men, one being a trainee) didn’t do anything about it, instead making us waste time we had already paid for.‬

‪Heard so much about Boda Borg, when I finally went, I must admit I was disappointed (some of the rooms were not so well presented or designed and Alcatraz was closed -- very disappointing). That said, it was still quite fun. It is probably more fun afterwards since questing can be quite addictive. Because we failed so many times, all we wanted to do now is to return to solve all those unsolved mysteries!!! Oh two hours is definitely not enough!!! The next time we go we will stay for more than 3 hours for sure.‬
