We did the High Speed NYC whilst on holiday last week and it was amazing. The puzzles are hi-tech and really get you thinking and the surprises keep coming throughout. Five of us played from age 13 - 54 and everyone was buzzing afterwards. We got out with less than a minute to spare!! Definitely recommend it.Sabrina
The Clock Tower and Submarine rooms are among the most original I've seen (amongst the 100+ rooms I've played in various countries), providing strong narrative-driven experiences with lots of fun surprises. Definite must-plays if you're an escape room enthusiast.Janice
The Clock Tower room had great clues. Not easy - we came so close but didn't end up escaping. Staff was very nice to work with.Gail
I LOVE this place. Totally surpassed my idea of what an escape room could be. All 3 rooms are so different and have their own specific styles of play. The Shelter had us scratching our heads and when we figured out the right thing to do it was so exciting. Very challenging and super well made.Christopher
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. 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.Ali
We did the Alien Encounter room and it was so much fun! We didn't make it...but still fun! We will definitely be back to try the other rooms and hopefully escape!Diana
