- Challenging puzzles
- Shady neighborhood at night
Our game was scheduled in the night time and the neighborhood seems a little shady. I would suggest do this escape room in the daytime when it may be safer. The GM, Bob, was very charismatic and passionate about his escape room. Bob did a very good job hyping up the room for us. As GM/actor for the room, he was a scientist seeking help from us to discover an antitode for the virus.
The puzzles were science-based and no outside knowledge was needed. The range of difficulty of the puzzles ranged from medium to challenging. There was one puzzle which needed to be completed correctly the first time or you fail the escape room.
VR was briefly used in the escape room and it vamped the escape experience. The science lab was well-built. Although the escape room is just one room, the GM was very good at creating anxiety to make the escape more difficult.
Great Value! Although this escape room has been in the business for a while, it's a golden one.
Should you play it?
Yes! Make sure you request Bob as your GM. He's excellent!
