First Impressions

Jasper was our GM and he was very friendly. He also gave us a chance to "warm-up" with a puzzle situated in the front of the facility. 


The puzzles were challenging. There was one puzzle in particular that requires teamwork and communication. It was tough with our group of 3. We had one person that didn't communicate well, therefore the puzzles were more difficult than normal. 


First, you start "outside of the house" and you work your way inside. The immersion was good. Nothing too amazing. The rooms were fairly small and I would imagine a group of 4-5 would have "snug" time in there.


Good escape room. The price for this experience is on par. Excited for their next room!

Should you play it?

It's definitely a good escape room to try if you find yourself in San Diego. The Diner is still considered my favorite escape room in San Diego.
