Soooo...I think I just lost a lot of brain cells from doing this, but in a good way. This place is located in an unlikely area of Chinatown, and certainly in an unlikely building. I don't know, I expected a grungy-like, warehouse maze setting, but it was exactly like a Chinatown office environment.Sharon T.
We bought our tickets through a LivingSocial deal and booked a 7-person time slot for my friend's birthday, plus a couple joined us for the Art Studio. We finished with 1:56 minutes left but those 58:04 minutes were brimmed with a roller coaster of emotions of "I don't want to do this anymore!," "What is the meaning of this?," and "Let's wreck shit up!"
Unless you are insanely smart, you will need a group of people who have the brains and muscles to solve puzzles and clues. Needless to say, teamwork was definitely critical and important but it was extremely fun. We wouldn't have opened a few locks without the help of the staff, who were very friendly and quirky. This is definitely something to do if you're bored and want to put your investigative skills to use. The Dark Room is something to consider on the future, but there is a 6-person limit of $180.
Moral lesson: don't overthink things.
