WOOHOO! We escaped the Asylum and with an additional 20 minutes to spare too!Shanon Y.
The concept is simple, you and your group of 5 friends are locked in a dark room and you have 1 hour to find a key to escape. The clock counts down and you are left scrambling through props and items in the room to solve puzzles and quizzes in hopes of finding clues to get out. Prior to starting the game, they will go over the rules and have you sign waivers. I've played several escape room games and this one was challenging yet really fun! I would highly suggest it for a first timer player.
-The best way to solve the clues is to work together. I can't stress enough that team work is vital! Keep track of your clues and communicate with everyone so you don't have 5 people looking for the same clues.
-Wear comfortable clothes! It can get really hot/cold in the rooms so wear something you feel comfortable moving around in.
-Keep hydrated and use the restroom beforehand. You will be LOCKED in the room for an hour!
-Be very observant. There's clues everywhere! Look underneath stuff, in cervices, high above you, move things around...etc
-Parking is terrible here! We ended up parking right next to the building because we couldn't fit our car in the tiny driveway. Make sure you tell them where you parked your car so you don't get towed.
