The Story

The year is 1955. You’ve been wrongfully accused of a crime, and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. Your new “home” is a cell that once belonged to an inmate who disappeared without a trace…or did he? Some claim he escaped. Others swear he was murdered by the infamously cruel warden. But no one actually knows… can you escape before you suffer the same fate?

The Venue

The Game   


Game Introduction: We are in a prison and we need to escape! An inmate may have left us a few clues...

Operator Intro: Exciting - takes you into the story

Theme: Prison

Narrative: Escape a Specific Unpleasant Place

Main room first glance: Looks Good

Locked in two separate cells, I was separated from my teammate immediately. There was enough room for 2-3 people per cell to be comfortable and not stepping on each other's toes.

Flow: Good Flow - one thing leads to another. Sometime not clear

Linear in nature, the room makes quite a bit of sense. However, when you get stuck - you get STUCK and cannot continue. There are some really great game components to assist in the forward momentum.

Puzzles: Well thought of. Intriguing

Ranging in difficulty from easy to moderate, there is enough to keep a family of all ages busy. As an enthusiast, there are some puzzles that are rarely seen, making this room a real treat!

Game Strengths:

Unique puzzles - Interesting game flow - well thought out storyline - professional GM's

Game Weaknesses:

Weird clue system within the cells - Difficulty seeing TV monitor from within cell

Hints & Clues, Debrief   


Method: Other

Quality: Good (things made sense)

Closure & Debrief: Excellent (Catharsis)

Final Thoughts:

When visiting a city that has an Escape Game Co location, their rooms are a must play. Each location has slight variations on games, making them replayable if it's been a while! Their level of professionalism and consistency is welcome and appreciated.
