This room hit our radar due to IPanic's advertising - an Escape Room that moves! Does it live up to the hype?
Venue / Lobby Info:
A large open area immediately when you enter grants ample space for waiting players to congregate. It reminded me of how laser tag waiting areas used to feel.

Call prior to booking. This room involves stepping up into a container, another room may be a better option for those with mobility concerns.
Game Introduction: We have an hour to uncover the mysteries of Bigfoot!
Operator Intro: OK
Theme: Fantasy / Fiction
Narrative: Gather Intelligence or Espionage
Main room first glance: Wow!
The game takes place in a modified shipping container (or this is how it looks..) Tight and cozy, you can immediately tell why this is a private booking game. The inside of the container looks like someone's run down trailer with an obsession for Bigfoot! Totally nailed it.
Flow: Bad Flow
Each hint we had to use within this experience was to help us discover the flow of the game. Puzzles are not intuitively connected, leaving several logic leaps.
Puzzles: Good puzzles
Most of the puzzles stayed on theme and were interesting. Some puzzles triggered a mega-event within the game, which was really exciting to see!
interesting concept - unique puzzles - fun in-game events
I was expecting more interactions with Bigfoot - poor game flow
Hints & Clues, Debrief
Quality: Good (things made sense)
Closure & Debrief: Excellent (Catharsis)
Bigfoot was marketed as a unique experience - a moving Escape Room! These in game interactions were exciting and lived up to the hype. The puzzles within this room need to be tweaked to provide a better flow. If you are in the area and looking for a unique Escape Room experience, Bigfoot may be what you're looking for - if you can find it!
Did You Escape: Yes
