My group and I have been waiting for this escape room since escaping from Breaking Point’s Patient 17 in December 2018. We enjoy Breaking Point Escape Rooms because of their superb immersiveness. A couple of group members who don’t like horror/scary escape rooms. They were totally on board with this escape room as it was advertised as a family-friendly/“Disney-esque” Haunted House.
Upon arrival, we were greeted by Ryan and Rick. It was nice to be remembered for our last experience with them in December. We also appreciated how transparent Ryan and Rick were in regards to the process and difficulties of getting this escape room operational. Ryan and Rick love their escape rooms and it surely shows in this escape room.
Being experienced escape artists of +170 rooms, we can say that the puzzles in this room are not “mind-blowing”. We’ve seen many of the puzzles except for 2-3 . The puzzles were also not too difficult or too easy. Despite all of this, the puzzles were SUPER FUN and the puzzle flow is CRAZY SMOOTH. I found that all the puzzles made sense logically as well as thematically (which we value a lot). Groups who thrive in multi-linear escape rooms will love the beginning of this escape room.
On-point. We loved every inch of the room! Immersiveness is Breaking Point Escape Room strong point and it’s amazing to see how Ryan and Rick used their limited space to make this stunning escape room. There were several “Oh shit!” and “Wow” moments in this room. I personally loved these moments. Just like the puzzle flow, the transitions are SUPER SMOOTH. I feel that Ryan and Rick are immersion gurus and we applaud them for doing such a great job with look and feel of the room.
For those who love Disney, there were homages to Disney’s Haunted House. The family-friendly haunted-ness/creepiness makes this escape room great for families with children.
There were also slight references to suicide, so be mindful of children and those with a history of mental illness.
I missed it when Breaking Point Escape Room was a low-key escape room. Why? Because it was difficult to partially book a public room for this game. It felt like everyone and their mom were trying to book this room! LOL! But it makes sense, The Secret of Whitmore Estate has extremely great value and Breaking Point Escape Rooms represent the Inland Empire very well.
Should you play it?
YES. Don’t even think twice.
