Coming into the room, it felt like a legitimate war room. It's a fairly multi-linear room where your group can split up and work on puzzles. What I LOVED about this room was how direct and concrete the puzzles were. I knew exactly where to start and what to do next. There were moments where teamwork was needed. I got in trouble with our game master because I was being resourceful! So don't cheat! LOL.
This escape room is one of my favorites because of how immersive it was and the fact I understood everything that was going on in the room.
