Don't worry: this is not a history lesson, so you won't need to write a report about what happened in 1861 or remember the names of all British kings. In these escape rooms, you will be transported to a different era. A meaningful plot will make your heart race a little faster, and the atmosphere will stimulate the thought process. Will you change the course of history?
We just did the Primal Quest room and loved it. We had very little experience with doing escape rooms but were able to figure out most of the clues with only a little help. We really enjoyed our experience and will be coming back. One major advantage is that you can book a room for only two people and not have to be combined with another group. We did fine with just the two of us.Sarah
My best friend and I had a blast. We did the Mafia Room, it was our first time. The guy helping us was great. Definitely recommend!MJ
My girlfriends and I escaped the Mafia room just in time. It was difficult, but not so difficult that we didn't have fun - perfect! We can't wait to take our spouses and do it again!Angela
We did two rooms by Escape the Room in the same day. First, my husband and I completed "The Agency". We loved everything about it!Kelsey
We then brought a friend back for his first escape room experience after dinner. We completed the mission control room. Unfortunately, this was a completely different experience. In all the escape rooms we have played, none have had such a linear and controlled order. The game master tells you exactly what to do and in what order. It makes it difficult when you have a larger group because it leaves people standing around if they aren't working on that puzzle in the moment. We were told there were lots of "bugs" and "glitches".
It was a very cool room with beautiful design and concept, but left our newbie friend confused and left us frustrated that we couldn't all participate in the whole process. I almost wouldn't put it into the same category as any of the other rooms we have ever done. We would have chosen the other option if we had known. It didn't ruin our experience since we had such a great one earlier in the day. Just a little clarity and knowing what to expect before signing up would have been helpful.
Mission Control was our 57th escape room. As far as the setting goes, it was superb! Think 1960-70 control rooms. It really was quite well done. The gamemaster through the speaker system came on and was giving us tasks to do over the control system. Nothing was intuitive or they didn't want you to think it was. Even for the three of us, the room was totally linear and most of the participants would be sitting there with nothing to do most of the time.Linda
With regards to gameplay, I feel the general idea was fantastic but the execution was not very well done. We didn't feel some of the props work well or properly.
I'm hoping this is just one bad room of theirs, we could hear laughing and happiness coming from other rooms so I know they have some potential just not in Mission Control.
My family & I had so much fun doing the Titanic themed room today. We made it out with just 30 seconds to spare. Taylor...our guide was fantastic! The place even has a bar & lockers for your belongings.Rachelle
