Fantastic fun and more to come! We will return as soon as possible to do the other rooms.Erik
Room: Ex Machina
Overall: Wonderful, friendly, and open customer service, Intriguing premise and unique "in world" tech and appropriately "authentic" props for immersion. Not too linear but becomes more linear as you near the finale. Enjoyable, relatively non-complicated tech and puzzles. The puzzles are strong and logical but certainly not too easy. No tedious task "puzzles" that can waste time.
Outcome: We didn't make it but came close by being in the home stretch of the last set of challenges
Time: Visited during soft opening several weeks ago; owner was extremely open and honest with us about the additional challenges that this may entail but it did not take away from the wonderful experience in the least. Should only get even better and better.
Team: 4 - 2 adults and 2 teens - we've done 6 escapes rooms previously
Difficulty: This was a challenging room for us but not impossible; This would be very challenging to first timers.
