This is one of the more difficult rooms that we've encountered in NJ. There is a LOT to do - this room can easily keep 4 enthusiasts busy for the full hour. There are some creepy components, but nothing terrible that would make this room not be family-friendly (ie: there's some bones, but no blood or gore).
Venue / Lobby Info:
Upon arrival, there is a large desk to the right side of the space for checking in. There is a 'standby room' off to the left side for debriefing/waiting. The space is rather large, and can easily facilitate groups of 15 people waiting.

Game Introduction: We are a team of explorers looking for the Jade Skull!
Operator Intro: Exciting - takes you into the story
Narrative: Carry out a Heist
Main room first glance: Wow!
**Full Disclosure** This main room had to be explained to me after the game was completed, as I didn't 'get it' at first. There are tons, and tons, of moving/packing crates surrounding you within the tomb that you entered - the tools your excavation team will need! The tomb is beautiful, with a large statue in front of you.
Flow: Very Good and coherent flow
The beginning of the game is a little choppy, with some mental leaps that we needed clues to figure out. Once we got into the game, it flowed beautifully - we knew what we needed to do, and had a clear path we were trying to work out. There are some points within this game where your group can separate into 2 or 3 puzzles simultaneously, giving larger groups something to do.
Puzzles: Well thought of. Intriguing
There are some unique puzzles in this room, that we haven't seen elsewhere in the area. We loved that the puzzles stayed on theme for the room, and most of the puzzles within the tomb had more of a physical/ancient feel, as opposed to high visible tech. Aesthetically, it was very pleasing.
Large working area - (lots) of unique puzzles - 20+ steps - enthusiast's delight
Rocky start, could get frustrating for new players
Hints & Clues, Debrief
Quality: Good (things made sense)
Closure & Debrief: Excellent (Catharsis)
