Wow. I want to start off by saying I have done a lot of escape rooms, but this experience was an outstanding one. In the roughly forty rooms that I've played, The Gold Rush at The Escape Game in King of Prussia has to be in my top three rooms. I had a group of five adults total, and while the room says it can accommodate up to eight people, I wouldn't want more than six in this room. The spaces are very small.Ally R.
I wish I could remember our hostess's name, because she was lovely and I hope I have her for when I inevitably return to play all the other rooms. She really had a good feel for when we needed clues and when we didn't. She also kindly paused the game upon our request when we had trouble with a directional lock puzzle (we had to try it about 6 times until we got it to work correctly).
We were led into a darkish room that was beautifully dressed as a rustic cabin front on a quiet evening in the mountains. We first had to break into the cabin, which took about fifteen minutes. Once inside the very tiny cabin, there were a handful of puzzles that were very appropriate to the theme of the game. We had guns and trophies to help move us along. I won't spoil the surprise, but finding (and getting to) the final room was one of the biggest highlights of the whole game.
Overall this is a beautiful escape room with excellent attention to detail. If you're reading this review and considering going, do it.
