I love Miami, but intellectually stimulating attractions are not one of this beautiful city's greatest strengths. This is why it's not surprising that The Great Escape Room is completely unique here, in concept, design and execution.Daniel K
The idea behind the experience here is as simple as the puzzles that must be solved are complex. With the clock ticking, you are locked in a room with a group of people and must explore the room to find clues to escape before the hour runs out. My team was bright (or desperate) enough to make it out, but I couldn't help wonder what happened to all those who didn't!
The real uniqueness and genius of this experience comes down to the broad range of different types of intelligence that must be used to solve ALL of the puzzles: spatial, visual, verbal, mathematical. Having to switch between all these different modes of critical thinking can be disorienting on an individual level (your most difficult puzzle can easily seem like the easiest once you figure it out), but really enhances the sense of teamwork and collective accomplishment more than other group-based games do.
Overall, I would recommend this to anyone over the age of 12 and would definitely go again if they added a new puzzle!!!
