- Don't pull the letters off the wall
Just like Cold War Bunker, this escape room felt like a office and bank. Unlike Cold War Bunker, these puzzles were more abstract. I, again, got in trouble with our game master due to pulling a metal letter off the wall. SO DON'T DO THAT! NOTHING IS THERE! LOL.
A tip for this escape room is to not overthink things as some of the puzzles are easier than it seems. There was a puzzle where teamwork and communication is needed. When we got into the bank vault, it was cool to see that you needed to solve a series of various puzzles to escape the room.
Overall, this was an incredible room. Fox in a Box is one of my favorite escape room companies.
