First Impressions

After doing Smugglers Tunnel a couple of months ago, we were awaiting the opportunity to try out this escape room from Escape Chronicles. After some research, there was a comparison between this escape room and Stanley's Parable. Have you heard of it? I haven't! It looks like a quirky office game that was made in 2013. I linked a YouTube video for you to see what the game is about. Upon arriving, we were able to meet our good friend, Andrew!


The puzzles were clever and mostly different from anything I have seen before. The puzzles at the beginning of the experience were much better compared to the puzzles we had to complete at the end.


The escape room was like an office break room. 


I would say that this escape room had a fair value. I believe our experience would've been better if the puzzles at the end were better and more exciting.

Should you play it?

This escape room was excellent. I would recommend playing Smuggler's Tunnel at this location instead as it would be more worth playing for the same price.
