We did "Time Machine" Saturday night @ NAER's Brea location and it was a phenomenal experience. While this was only my 6th escape room, my friend has done over 40, and we both left being BLOWN away at the production value of this room. I hate I can't elaborate more on some of the TECH they had, as it was by far beyond anything I've seen in any room so far, but I can't give anything away! Just know the CREATIVITY and EFFORT put into designing this room will keep you SMILING throughout the entire thing and long after! We're still talking about some of the crazy cool things they did this morning and wondering how they pulled off a few aspects of it all.Scott
Also - it's great that they give you a 90 min time to complete, because you do want to take a moment an appreciate what you are seeing and experiencing. Some puzzles take some time and teamwork, but it's never so difficult where it's frustrating. We finished with 16 mins to go - but again - the emphasis isn't on time. Their focus is purely on your enjoyment and leaving satisfied with the very unique and fun experience! Again - I wish I could mention some of the things that neither of us had ever seen before, but we don't want to spoil a single surprise for you!
Rest assured, you will not regret doing "Time Machine"! Hope people discover this place as it's in a random little neighborhood in Brea, but it's a hidden gem for sure!!
**there is even hand sanitizer available throughout :)
Oh great...not another escape room.... but hey, I'm not complaining!Rich L.
There's plenty of parking since it's on the border of a neighborhood and business area.
My team of 4 did their "Designer's Studio" room, but we really wanted to do their "Unicorn" room instead. Unfortunately, the room had some technical issues so we ended up doing the "Designer's Studio" instead.
Luckily, we weren't disappointed at all. Though the puzzles are mostly gen 1 puzzles, made of locks and other gen 1 mechanics, there were actually gen 1 puzzles that were unique to that room that we had never seen before. I've done almost 150 rooms, and it's always fun to see new puzzles and there were plenty of new ones for me to see this time around too.
Their games and wording are quite clever, so pay attention to those.
Though the games are private games, I would recommend a team of 2 to 4 for more experience teams, and 4 or more for less experience teams.
