First Impressions

Please refer to An Hour to Kill.


The flow was linear and the puzzles were good. Nothing amazing. The room requires a lot of crawling and movement to previous rooms. I can imagine how some individuals with physical limitations can have a lot of difficulties in this escape room. If you are tall, you are going to also have difficulties with low ceilings. This room is great for short people like me! lol. This puzzles also great for beginners and/families.


It's an area 51-ish feel. You are given a helmet and a fake gun with a flashlight. Some parts of the escape room were dimly-lit, therefore, flashlights was a good thought. The escape room was very warm when my group and I played. I was sweating a little bit due to all the physical demands of the escape room. It can be cramped at times however the last room has a lot of space.


The value of this room was good. Although there is nothing special about this escape room, we did end the escape room with a great sense of achievement after going through all the crawling. We earned the win! 

Should you play it?

I suggest playing The A.I. and/or An Hour to Kill before you try this escape room. However, if you do like physical escape rooms, this is the one or you!
