This game was not meant for 2 escape artists to tackle. This being my father's second escape room, it was way too difficult for us. I felt that the room was very well designed, multi-linear and very immersive. It felt like I was in the movie, "Chicago". The puzzles were challenging and it required a lot of reading. There were some unique and clever puzzles that used low-tech methods. You start off in a well-lit hallway with your "evidence" before you enter Chateau Noir.
The game masters were very nice and gave us 20 more minutes because we were "international guests". Their policy was that they wanted people to get the full experience of the room even if they failed. This room is definitely good for veteran escape artists of a group of 3-5 people.
