22-56 31st St, Astoria, NY 11105 ()
Locked – Escape Rooms NYC is located right opposite the subway stop at Ditmars blvd (Astoria, Queens), on the second floor of 22-56 31st Street.
What a surprise to find Astoria has an escape room game, and a top notch one at that. We did the Vendetta room – my ninth escape room, and a first for my sister and friend. This being a new room, I expected some kinks would still be working out, or some beginner-level puzzles, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Well thought out with a sophisticated mix of technology, set construction, and props. A good mix of complex puzzles, and some so simple you smack your head and wonder why you didn’t think of it sooner. Our game master helped steer us in the right direction via messages on TV monitors in the rooms, but the hints were never so revealing that it felt like he was doing the work for us. The plot was great – interesting story, but not more than you needed. We finished with 2 minutes to spare and we can’t wait to go back! Highly recommended for both veterans and first-timers alike. Definitely one of the best rooms I’ve ever done. Go!Chris P.
