  • Recommend 3-4 escape artists
  • 1st Gen lock & key escape room
  • A lot of pen & paper puzzles
  • Old school feel

After being amped from The Secret of the Dragon's Spire, we wanted to do another escape room at Escape Games at the River. Our GM told us that this escape room was the first escape room they made.

This room is a true 1st generation lock & key escape room and it certainly did not have the same WOW factor or immersiveness as Dragon's Spire. 

I would recommend this escape room for artists who like pen & paper puzzles because there's several of them. Some puzzles were creative. I especially like the one with the bean bags.
