After doing 50+ rooms, this is one of my all-time favorite rooms. Unique puzzles that fit the themes nicely. The cleanest design I have ever seen and was esthetically beautiful. A mix of modern and traditional elements. I highly recommend any of the Lock Down rooms. The staff was friendly and very accommodating with the booking process. I am usually not a fan of walkie-talkies for hints. However, the walkie-talkies used were simple, worked well, and hints were given quickly demonstrating that the game master was tracking our progress carefully. Lock Down delivers a solid A+ escape room experience which can be a rare find these days.Mark
For centuries, the Shogun, chief military commander of the Japanese army was the nominal ruler of the country, until 1868, when the shogunate was terminated and the ruling power was returned to the emperor. The last Shogun, Tokugawa Yoshinobu, as a sign of resignation, took apart his armor and spent his last years in peaceful retirement.
There’s a myth about Tokugawa’s secret oath: should any time the three most influential families of Japan provide him unanimous support, he, or his descendants return to power and take over control of Japan in case the emperor or the government lead the country to devastation.
Hired by one of these families, you’re task is to find and re-assemble Tokugawa’s armor to activate his secret followers’ society – a small, but an incredibly influential group of people in Japan, who only wait for this sign for more than a decade to regain control of the Japanese empire.
