The Game   


Game Introduction: We have 30 minutes to stop the missile from launching!

Operator Intro: Exciting - takes you into the story

Theme: Military

Narrative: Defuse the explosive device

Main room first glance: Wow!

We were led into a darkly painted room.. with a giant missile launcher in the center of it. It was an exciting 'wow!' factor, until we realized that this small area is the entirety of the experience.

Flow: Excellent flow - flawless and coherent

The room provides you a step by step manual of what to do, and in what order. Due to this guide, the flow is absolutely perfect.

Puzzles: Good puzzles

There are 5 steps to complete within the guide, utilizing varying skills you will find in your group. One step is entirely math related. Strong English reading skills are required. A steady hand is a must.

Game Strengths:

Intimidating and exciting missile launcher - step by step beginner guide controls the experience

Game Weaknesses:

Our team completed 4 of the 5 steps in 8 minutes. The remaining 10 minutes involved one player attempting the same step, over and over again, with the other players just 'resetting' the puzzle for it's next attempt. It was unnecessarily repetitive, frustrating, and hard on the knees of the player resetting. It also quickly became boring, as we knew the solution but had to keep retrying the physical aspect of the puzzle.

Final Thoughts:

If you're at Broadway Mall, and you want to show a friend or family member the premise behind Escape Rooms, Infiltrate 358 is a possibility. The frustrating nature of one puzzle keeps this room from being on my recommendations list for the area, as does the steep price tag for a <20 minute experience. I would recommend heading over to their other location and attempting a different game, as their Mineola location offers several fantastic options. Do not let this game distort your impression of the 'Can you Escape' brand.
