Welcome to the future. Space and time traveling is always a great idea! Until regular people are able to travel to other planets or a time machine is invented, we suggest you try cutting-edge escape rooms. Be prepared for aliens, spaceships, time warps and experiences beyond your wildest imagination.
I'm a longtime VR enthusiast and have been following the ups and downs of the industry for years. Unfortunately, VR has been a disappointment and I've been waiting for someone to bring great hardware and content together, and give me a reason to believe again. Enter, Sandbox VR.Joe M.
They call themselves a "holodeck" so, as a Star Trek purist, my expectations are sky high. I better feel like I'm knee deep in a Klingon swamp or spending a weekend in Risa with some lovely green ladies, or else I'll be disappointed.
Well, after playing BOTH Sandbox experiences, I can say that my mind is completely BLOWN. It's by far the best VR experience I've had to date, especially if you're used to being a floating head on a disorienting roller coaster demo. This is NOT that. You move in the environment with your pals as perfectly mapped, MOCAP'd characters so there's no sense of feeling dizzy. The haptics make it feel like those zombies are really about to eat my face! It's practically an otherworldly experience that you have to see the believe.
While there's currently a limited amount of content that's focused primarily on horror/survival themes, it's only a matter of time before we can take a pilates class or travel beyond the stars in VR. I, for one, came to play. Bring it on Sandbox!
Booked Space Bus after playing the King Arthur game and it was worth it.Yousef
To start with it is a GORGEOUS game. I played a few sci-fi themed escape games around the world and this one is the best one yet. The deep rumble of engines and a little bit of movement made it so real!
The game puzzles are well done and games allow for many things to be done at the same time. Also, some puzzles could be solved in more than one way.
Be sure not to overcomplicate, because in many cases the solution is simpler than you think.
Space Bus was great! I've never done an escape room so I had no expectations. The staff we interacted with were very friendly. The condition of the bus was excellent, quite new. The level of technology in the bus in regard to the puzzles was also unexpected. I thought the experience would comprise of shaking curtains for hidden keys or looking under loose tile and the like, haha. To finish the bus on time with the amount of puzzles, you should definitely have at least 4 participants.Sophia T.
My 5 friends and I did not set any records but we finished with exactly 1 minute to spare! Oh, the drama!
This is what the hype is about? A resounding yes. First time escaper! But won't be my last.Sancho F M.
Came to celebrate my brother in law's birthday, so just finished dinner at Osso up the street and met the rest of our party (18 total) here. The staff quickly separated the large group into 3 teams and set us on our way. Preliminary instructions were quick, to the point, and off we were. I was blessed with the Space Bus, a super detailed designed "school bus" outside of the facility. At first I looked at he exterior and thought "huh", but once inside and locked it, the lights, sounds, and feeling of immersion was immediate. And damn we're the puzzles cool and challenging. No spoilers here, except we got maybe 4 hints, and finished the experience with 3 minutes to spare. CANNOT WAIT FOR ANOTHER ROOM! Definitely will be back. Great job!
Below are all of the clues to finish Space Bus in record time.Rich H.
Great time with team of 7 (4 adults and 3 teenagers). Although we finished with plenty of time, not knowing how close we were (or not) made it a ton of fun.
Our guide Will was fantastic and actually recommended some escape rooms in Los Angeles (where we went next).
Actual tips: Listen during the guide's introduction -- it'll be important. Read everything (even more important). Assign the math-y puzzles to the Kumon lovers on your team.
This was the best room I've ever tried in San Francisco! I liked the style and the puzzles. I and my friend spent there a great time! Highly recommended, you will not regret!Natalia Sovie
