This was my first live "Escape Game" experience. It was a really fun thing to do with a small group of friends on a weeknight!Indiana J.
We did the "Vault" room, which was apparently rated "medium" in difficulty, but we failed it.
Without spoiling much about it... it was actually VERY challenging. I went with 2 friends (one of which had done an escape game before, someplace else). His critique was, in comparison, this one was too heavily based on numbers and math (which I completely agree with). My other friend was disappointed with the design/construction of the rooms, more from a style perspective than a game perspective (which I also kind of agree with).
Otherwise, we definitely were challenged with the difficulty of the puzzles.
I personally wish there was a stronger story element to our puzzle and that there was maybe a way to interact with the people who worked there a bit more in some way, whether it be a character element or something like that (for instance, maybe someone is dressed on a police uniform or there is some pre-recorded element that gives you an idea of what could be happening in the world outside of the game area. This could add to the suspense.
We also all agree that there should be time clocks in all of the areas of the course, as you are not allowed electronics and can easily lose track of time once you are past the first room. Either that or some other way to clearly note how much time you have left.
All in all, we had a great time and I would recommend Exit Game to someone else. I just feel genuinely let down that we didn't beat it. I feel we definitely could have with a little bit more time.
