We tried the Trapped in the Circus room. The location is definetely sketchy. The good thing was that the "ringmaster" was standing behind the gate in plain sight, so we knew we were in the right place! My friend and I ended up playing with 4 other strangers. The experience was still great even though we were only 10 seconds away from escaping!Kristi
I don't want to give too much away, but just a heads up that this room is only 40 minutes long, with only one room to play in. I'm used to 1 hour long escape rooms and multiple rooms, so it was a bit underwhelming. The puzzles are not too difficult. I enjoyed how sequential the puzzles were, and how they all fit in really well with the theme of the room. The "ringmaster" was in the room with us, taking down notes of who did what, as well as providing a hint when he saw we were missing an essential piece of the picture.
I'd recommend taking Uber/Lyft here as I wouldn't trust parking my car in this sketchy area. I found it odd that the actor asked for tips at the very end; never encountered that before! Regardless, it was a fun experience and I'd be down to come back if they have other games besides the zombie room!
