Overview Notes:

This is the first escape room we have played, in quite some time, that was able to keep our group of four seasoned players busy for the entire hour. I would suggest this room to all enthusiasts in the area, looking for a change of pace from the 'typical' escape room. Due to specific puzzles within the game, I would recommend a team of 4-5 players. I would say that while families are welcome, players 16+ would truly appreciate this room, as well as older generations.

The Venue   


Venue / Lobby Info:

Walking into an office building, we followed the signage to 'Roomination'. We found ourselves in a bright, small lobby, with a sofa on one side and a check in desk on the other. It was welcoming, comfortable, clean, and a great place to meet prior to playing the game ahead. As it is currently set up, it can comfortably hold 4-6 players.

The Game   


Game Introduction: We have to investigate the disappearance of our boss , find a flash drive, and escape within the hour!

Operator Intro: Interesting

Theme: Modern Era (2000+)

Narrative: Gather Intelligence or Espionage

Main room first glance: Looks Good

We weren't sure what to expect when entering this experience. The game begins in a typical 'office' style escape room, with a distinct 'zen/Asian' flair to the theme. Roomination is officially a 'beyond the cover' company - give the beginning impression a chance to bloom into an unexpected adventure.

Flow: Excellent flow - flawless and coherent

With several puzzles able to keep our entire team busy, we were running around and having a blast throughout the entire hour. Due to the style of the game, we had a good idea of where to go and what to do at any point in time. There were a few logic leaps that experienced players will be able to discern faster than new players.

Puzzles: Some of them were great (matched promised level)

Most of the puzzles stayed on theme, and there were several Wow! factors to uncover in this experience. A handful of puzzles didn't feel like they belonged within the game, and I'd love to see these items smoothed out a bit more into the story line. There is a mix of more traditional Escape Room tropes, with some 'never seen this used before!' moments.

Game Strengths:

Unique set elements - lots of puzzling to do - physical/task based puzzles that involved all players - unique theme - beautiful use of space

Game Weaknesses:

A few puzzles didn't match the theme or story line

Final Thoughts:

A beautiful, hidden gem has been found in Providence! For their first and only room (so far!), you can see the amount of love and attention to detail that was put into this experience. Feel free to bring teenagers or silver sneakers, there are elements that will be engaging and fun for all. I would recommend this room for mixed experienced families as a great way to keep all engaged.
