Finding this escape room was a little difficult because it was on the second floor of building which was a part of a mall. We didn't find any stairs going up, only an elevator. Upon arriving, we noticed that the walls were velvet and the restrooms were carpeted. Super Boujee! Our GM told us that the space use to be a interior design store.
This particular escape room was their newest one. One of the reasons we booked this escape room was because of it's "WOW Factor" according to their website and rating by Forbes as "the best escape room outside of Los Angeles". It got us curious.
This escape room is a BEAUTIFUL 2.5 gen escape room. It was very immersive and felt like we were transported to another world with dragons, knights and sorcery. One of the first puzzles was very tricky. The other puzzles were good, challenging and entertaining. I loved how the hints were given to us through the magic mirror, that also showed our time. Our GM was very humorous with our hints, which made our experience even more enjoyable. The flow of this escape room was linear.
This escape room is clearly a gem if you are willing travel to Rancho Mirage. I recommend this escape room for all escape room enthusiasts.
