The Story

The Montauk Air Force Station was shut down in the 1970’s – or was it? The area was transformed into Camp Hero State Park, but there have been ongoing reports about people running away from the base or disappearing in the surrounding forests. Rumor has it, that the bunker has never been completely abandoned, some experiments have been left behind, something in there is still alive. Worse, our investigations indicate that the danger is spreading… YOUR MISSION: Infiltrate the area, locate the source of the mysterious incidents and bring back hard evidence. Should you return, please remember to re-seal any gates that might have been unlocked - containing the situation is of the essence. The people of Montauk and the Myss Tic Team admire your courage. Good luck!

Who is this for: Families , Enthusiasts , Searchers , Thrill Seekers

Leave yourself plenty of time to park, we parked three blocks away and walked over.

Overview Notes:

Perfect for an experienced duo or trio! I would not recommend more than 4 players due to the linear nature of the experience.

The Venue   


Venue / Lobby Info:

**SAFETY NOTE** You must walk downstairs into the venue. One of our teammates almost fell into the door of the venue due to the stairs not being well lit / clear. Upon entrance to the lobby, you will find yourself in an theatrically staged parlour area. It felt warm and inviting, with seating for 2 - 3 team mates prior to game entry. With one game running at this time it felt cozy and private.

Public Restrooms: Yes

Refreshments: No

Notes for People with Disabilities:

Some kneeling/crawling/crouching may be involved. Uneven floor throughout the experience with some tripping hazards. Stairs to walk down into the venue.

The Game   


Game Introduction: Our GM took on the role of a scientist to lead us to our experience. We have about 70 minutes worth of oxygen before some toxin begins to overwhelm our systems... Get what we need and get out! The story line didn't feel the same as on the website, and it was very difficult to follow at times.

Operator Intro: OK

Theme: Fantasy / Fiction

Narrative: Escape a Specific Unpleasant Place

Main room first glance: Wow!

Welcome to the most elaborately themed Escape Room in NYC. You find yourselves in an underground garden with an entire world ahead of you to explore! The space is beautifully crafted, begging to be explored.

Flow: Very Good and coherent flow

Not your typical Escape Room! If you are a fan of point/click adventures on your PC or phone, Montauk Project follows that same train of thought for most of the mission. Interact with the world around you, and see what happens!

Puzzles: Some were quite trivial / No justification

Lots and lots of searching is required for this adventure. With puzzles ranging from simple to obscure, there is enough 'meat' to keep an enthusiast filled group busy. Those with some Escape Room experience will recognize several gaming elements, but perhaps they aren't quite as they appear?

Game Strengths:

Beautiful, elaborate set design - large playing space - unique interactions

Game Weaknesses:

Story line needs to be cleaned up - the story feels so important in the beginning, but is lost a few minutes into the experience. Uneven flooring within dark areas led to several tripping moments. The latter portion of the game feels messy and needs finer tuning to match the incredible beginning of the game.

Hints & Clues, Debrief   


Method: Walkie Talkie

Quality: Good (things made sense)

Closure & Debrief: Very Good

  1. Bloody Hide N Seek

    A chilling walk through where remnants of the 1970’s give rise to a thrilling sci-fi horror experience. This is an excellent introduction to escape rooms for both the fierce and faint of heart. The storyline is about as bizarre as the conditions necessary to escape, but beware, time is limited and an ominous presence is always lingering… the design of this room stays true to it’s overarching themes, and your GM— I mean, TENACIOUS Doctor, is attentive in answering any questions while empowering you to solve this decades-old mystery.

Final Thoughts:

Project Montauk is great for anyone with a passion or curiosity in Escape Rooms. It is worth going for a small group, and I would definitely love to come back and revisit this experience. I recommend everyone who has not been to venture down and solve the mystery that is Project Montauk.
