Ease Of Booking :
Their website was having issues processing payments, so I had to call their office a few times in order to book the game. However, I was able to book for a same day game. I called and booked at 7PM for a 10PM game.
Lobby : When I walked in, the ceiling and walls are painted in white/black stripes, kind of how I imagine Alice falling down the rabbit hole. There is a comfy couch on the right side, and a desk for checking in on the back wall. As stark as the room is, it sets an excellent mood and throws you into their realm.
Hospitality : The game hosts were absolutely lovely, and took the time to talk us through their company history, their goals for future rooms, and even gave us the chance to Beta test one of their rooms soon to be open - the Vault! There was one unisex restroom, and it was clean. There are no refreshments at the facility, but several bars and restaurants are within walking distance.
Time Keeping : Keeping with the theme, there is no visible technology in the rooms keeping time. We started our game on time.
Briefing Details : Hoods were placed over our heads, and we were led into separate cells. the gates were locked behind us, and we were told 'good luck!' and the game began. The hoods were an excellent touch, especially since we were locked into small cells. It really played on the game's name sake- Claustrophobia.
Operator Intro : Exciting - takes you into the story
Actively engaged with us, and assisted us when needed. Knowledgeable, caring staff.
The Game :
Until all of the kinks are worked out of their puzzles, I have to rate them a 6. While it didn't totally ruin our experience, it was disappointing.
The Venue :
They have a lovely space to operate 3-4 nice sized rooms simultaneously, and the space was much nicer than expected.
Main Room - First Glance :
We were locked into small dungeon cells, with no obvious way to escape. The scenery was out of this world - the walls were actually stone, someone must have spent months designing this experience. I have never seen anything like this, or experienced such a well made dungeon in 2016. It was lit by 'torches' and we could see torture devices from the cell.
Excellent flow - flawless and coherent
For the most part, the game had an obvious flow, and the puzzles were set up linear. Designed for up to four people, myself and my husband we able to maneuver and escape this very well thought out dungeon with time to spare.
Some of them were great (matched promised level)
With the exception of several puzzles breaking during our experience, and the game master having to come in and help us get to the next room/area/puzzle, this is the first game where I was able to experience several puzzles for the very first time. For those of you into unique puzzles - this place I cannot recommend enough.
Hints & Clues : Three clues
Policy: Strict Policy
Hints & Clues Quality: When we had to ask for clues, usually it was due to a puzzle being broken, not due to being unable to solve the puzzle. I would be excited to see this game again with everything operating correctly.
Closure & Debrief :
The gamemaster (who I believe is also the owner) apologized profusely for all of the broken elements. It seemed like they were a new facility and still getting the kinks out of the operating procedures.
