This escape room has consistently been at a top-tier escape room in Los Angeles within the past year and I've been waiting patiently to do this room with Amber. Our GM was very nice and set us up with the story very well. We then entered a room with a well in our wizard robes provided by Maze Room Los Angeles...
I'm not a big fan with Maze Room style when it comes to puzzles. I could just be me, however, I feel some of the puzzles don't make sense to me and there is no way in hell I would've thought about doing certain actions in the escape room unless I had a hint. Amber also wasn't a big fan of the puzzles, she said, "What? That doesn't make sense". LOL! Considering I have a couple of Maze rooms under my belt, I was semi-familiar with their style of puzzles. The puzzle flow was linear. The highlight of this escape room was the use of technology. TONS of it!
Some wear-and-tear was seen in the escape room, however, that was expected as this escape room has been probably been played a lot. The set was well-made. There were a set of stairs that may be problematic for tall people (> 6ft) as the headroom clearance was low. What makes this room top-tier was the technology. In the first room, the ceiling was a giant screen like Fremont Street in Las Vegas. As you progress through the room, the ceiling would change. It was spectacular to watch.
Good value! I can see why it is a top-tier escape room.
Should you play it?
If you're familiar with Maze Room LA's puzzles, do it. Just know you got to think outside of the box more. I didn't recommend this escape room to my friends who don't like Maze Rooms' style of puzzles. It's a good room. I wouldn't go to the extent of saying it's a "Must-Do" room based on our escape experience.
