My family and I did the "Egyptian Tomb" room on December 26, 2017 and it was GREAT. Six of us were experienced escapers and two of us were newbies.Blythe
The location is gorgeous! When you walk in, they have some of the coolest puzzles in the waiting room.
The production value of the room was easily the best I've seen. Decorations, lighting, etc. were all really immersive. They even had Egyptian costumes you could wear while playing. (Or just for the photo at the end!)
The room was also super challenging yet accessible for our newer players.
The President of the company Dave Chase was manning the front desk, made sure we all had a great time, gave us his card, and encouraged us to come and complete the other three rooms. Customer service in general was super friendly.
We'll be going back. (Oh, and we made it out of the room!)
September, 1800. For thousands of years, Egypt was the dominant force in North Africa and the Middle East. Napoleon Bonaparte believed that he alone had discovered the source of the ancient civilization’s power and fertility, a relic, “The Artifact”. Napoleon gathered together his army and a crew of archeologists and mounted an expedition to Egypt. However, the ancient Egyptians were wise, and knew that someday another ruler would desire The Artifact for themselves. Napoleon and his archaeologists triggered the traps left in the tombs by the Egyptians, and fled. Leaving the tombs, and The Artifact, far behind...
Modern day: Clue Chase Labs has detected electromagnetic interference in the tomb of Queen Nefertiti in the year 1800, almost immediately after Napoleon and his men fled the area. These signals lead us to believe that Napoleon was correct, and that the artifact was most certainly in the possession of the ancient Egyptians - and perhaps… it still is.
