The Game   

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

Operator Intro: Exciting - takes you into the story

Theme: Cartoon / Anime

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!

Game Strengths:

Best game ending in Los Angeles - fun, child friendly experience

Game Weaknesses:

Some of the set pieces felt complete, sturdy, and were absolutely beautiful. Other areas felt equally unfinished and needed some polish.

Hints & Clues, Debrief   

Method: Other

Quality: Excellent (They have advanced the game, built-in escalation, no answer-disclosing)

Closure & Debrief: Excellent (Catharsis)

Final Thoughts:

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.
