According to our amazing GM, MindTrap had Labyrinth help make their escape rooms. Amber and I had the opportunity to play and Labyrith room in Portland, OR - Hyde. It was very well made.
One may wonder if an escape room in Temecula would be any good because of the lack of competition. This multilinear escape room is both beautiful and brilliant. The flow, immersion and experience was outstanding. The ending was super cool!
This room was MindTrap's "beginner" room and it's true to that. The puzzles were easy but slightly challenging. This is a definitely a great room to get your feet wet in the escape room world. Experienced escape artists will also appreciate the immersion and feel of this room. The mechanisms and triggers in the room feel rugged and delayed, but that's appropriate considering that this escape room is set in the 1850s during the Gold Rush. It's suppose to be like that. lol.
If you have a chance, visit this gem of an escape room. You will not be disappointed.
