I had extremely high hopes for this adventure, but was sadly disappointed. :(Linda G.
On the day that my friends & I had arrived, it appeared a previous group had created havoc in the room. The jail doors were broken, particular things didn't have battery power, stuff was unclean, broken things had masking tape on them, and well... everything was broken. They had little pieces of paper stuck to things that said don't touch, and it made us confused. Everything that involved writing on a laminated surface was pretty poorly cleaned, so it was easy to see what previous people had written.
The game makers had to give us clues to answer everything, because pretending things weren't broken made it difficult to figure out exactly what we were supposed to be doing. Like a previous Yelper has mentioned, the process of solving this escape room is really linear, so you have to do particular things to get to the next clue. The problem was ... everything was broken.I actually figured out how to exit the room half way through because stuff was broken.
I could see if everything was properly functional, or set-up, it would've been super fun, but alas it was not. In the end, we jokingly asked if we could get a discount because everything was broken, and they said we could not because we completed the whole game.... but the thing was... how could we not complete the game? We didn't know how jenky it would be... :(
I really want to give them another shot, but I honestly had a terrible time. I want to see the other rooms because of the awesome reviews, but its hard to want to go back after experiencing something that was so poorly put together. :(
My only advice is... if you coming to PaniqRoom, maybe try a different room, because the Prison room sucked.
