Based on a recent 60out newsletter, Pandorus re-opened! I remembered seeing it as one of the top escape rooms in Los Angeles on a random escape room review article I found online. I booked this room so my group could test this room.
My team got a sense of bewilderment when we first entered the room. We were on an alien spaceship which was obvious from the alien language etchings, lasers and cosmic lighting.
The puzzles were unique, challenging and fun. 60out is known for linear escape rooms. Although this escape room was linear, there were still of things to do. The best part of the experience was encountering a small surprise. It wasn't scary or a jump scare, it was more like a sci-fi experience. The goal of the room to obtain 5 alien pieces.
There was one puzzle that needed the GM to intervene. He came into the room and manually open something. Our group just closed our eyes to pretend he wasn't there. LOL! Although there were tech failures, it did not ruin the escape experience. It was still fun!
I would recommend this room for beginners and for families!
