The Venue   

Venue / Lobby Info:

This venue is really, really hard to find for out-of-towners. It's on the backside of the building, and involves walking down an alley on a side street to get to the entrance. Give yourself time to find it. Once inside, it's much bigger than on the outside! Plenty of space for a few teams to wait for their games.

The Game   

Game Introduction: We are given our equipment and the search for the Red Giant begins!

Operator Intro: Exciting - takes you into the story

Theme: Adventure

Narrative: Be an Adventurer

Main room first glance: Wow!

We find ourselves in a dark tomb, trying to navigate our way around! The set is beautiful, immersive, and creative. It's dark without being too dark.

Flow: Very Good and coherent flow

Mostly linear in nature, the adventure follows a path of obstacles and puzzles to solve.

Puzzles: Good puzzles

Puzzles varied from physical to moderate difficulty, with an emphasis on the theatrics. This room is supposed to be an adventure, not a puzzle haven - as long as you go into it with that mindset, you'll have a great time!

Game Strengths:

Immersive, Expansive set - Small group maximum - puzzles remain on theme - feels 'real' - breaks traditional Escape Room rules

Game Weaknesses:

If you are claustrophobic or sensitive to loud noises, pick another adventure at Quest Rooms - It's cost prohibitive for only 2 players at $60/ticket

Hints & Clues, Debrief   

Method: Walkie Talkie

Quality: Good (things made sense)

Closure & Debrief: Excellent (Catharsis)

Final Thoughts:

Red Giant is a beginner friendly Escape Experience. It breaks the rules and provides an intimate game.

Did You Escape: Yes
