This was the first escape room experience for my friends and me and we had a blast. It took a bit of convincing to get everyone to go to Richmond and the discounted deal we purchased definitely helped. Once we got to Omescape, we all became focused on solving the puzzles. There were 7 in our group and we tried the easiest room, "Omega," which has a time travel theme.Yi Z.
We found the clues to be very clever and exciting. There was a glitch at the start in which we were actually let into the second room before we solved the puzzles to get to that stage. We quickly backtracked and found the proper way to get into that room. It would have been nice if the staff had checked the rooms before we entered.
We got stuck on one clue in the second room and we used our one "lifeline" there. Once we got past that point, we quickly figured out the remaining clues and rushed out of the room in 55 minutes.
It was so much fun that I would have loved to do another room on the spot but we had another appointment to go to and we were terribly hungry and that will have to wait until next time.
