Game Introduction: We're dogs! And we're on the hunt for our BALL!!

Narrative: Be an Adventurer
Main room first glance: Nice & Neat!
If Honey I Shrunk the Kids was your favorite movie as a kid, you'll feel right at home in the oversized kitchen set! I can't go into details, but ESCapades LA did a wonderful job creating a room that made us feel like we were at knee height.
Flow: Not that good. A bit confusing
Puzzles create an unequal amount of time and manpower in each room. If you get stuck - ask for a hint, especially during the linear moments within the game play. One puzzle in particular cost us a significant amount of game time (and hints); additional clues within the game are needed.
Puzzles: Some of them were great (matched promised level)
Some puzzles were PERFECTLY executed for our doggy brains - others were a bit too obscure. Most were on the level that a 7-10 year old would be able to fully participate, which is a rarity in Escape Rooms!
Best game ending in Los Angeles - fun, child friendly experience
Some of the set pieces felt complete, sturdy, and were absolutely beautiful. Other areas felt equally unfinished and needed some polish.
Hints & Clues, Debrief
Quality: Excellent (They have advanced the game, built-in escalation, no answer-disclosing)
Closure & Debrief: Excellent (Catharsis)
If you're looking for a family friendly Escape Room, or want to feed your inner child, book a room at ESCapades LA. Their Doggy Dog World game is fun, creative, and unlike anything else you'll come across in Los Angeles.
Did You Escape: Yes
