If you like games and puzzles or just pretending like you're sherlock holmes, this place is GREAT!Yong K.
i was skeptical when my friend said it was $28 per person.. i was like "there's no way this can be worth $30"
and while i can't afford to play this game often, it really was an amazing experience.
make sure to reserve in advance!! they have 3 diff types of rooms to escape from and each one is for a different number of people. i recommend trying to get a whole group of people you know to go together cuz this requires a lot of teamwork and it might be awkward trying to yell at a stranger to do something like "CHECK OVER THERE!!!"
Anyways... yeah, the clues were REALLY well made!! i was impressed. i felt like indiana jones at one point when i figured out a certain clue.. won't tell you which ;)
but yeah, it's not something that someone put together in 5 minutes then they lock you in a room. it's a pretty hard puzzle. I heard only 20% of people get out.
And i have to brag here but our team did make it out of the home (6 people) in 51min24sec!! The frustration/hopelessness at the last 15minutes and then the feeling when you open the door... amazing. you must go experience it yourself.
Just don't tackle your friends while trying to reach the door, which i almost did.
So... i LOVED it! i will be back one day hopefully to try the other ones.
i also recommend that you download the app/game Can You Escape and play the game (there's 1 and 2). it get's you in the mindset of looking for clues and how to play the game.
