I've done Shelter-R and Medieval Dungeon. The designs of the rooms are amazing. They obviously put a lot of effort into the atmosphere. The ambient sounds/music are cool too. Each room also has multiple rooms so that's always fun.Ali
What's challenging about these rooms is it's hard to tell in what order the clues go in or sometimes it's not clear how one thing is leading to the other.
When we did Shelter-R we were one clue shy of making it out. The guy that worked there came in at the end and asked us if we had any questions about the game or the clues (which is standard in an escape room). He was super excited to explain the whole backstory and plot which made the room make a lot more sense.
Normally in escape rooms there a screen that has the remaining time and clues that can pop up if you ask. There aren't screens in these rooms (maybe they don't want to mess up the atmosphere?) so you don't know how much time you have left until you get down to 5 minutes and then 2 minutes because it's announced. Also, for clues they announce it over the loud speaker and you have to tell them where you are in the game.
