Hansel and Gretel: Trapped inside the witch's house, we had to find a way to escape before we became her lunch.
Pros: We arrived at Mission Escape a bit early but our game master immediately checked us in and started our game. The room was decorated to theme including lots of cool props that help set the "trapped in the cabin of a scary witch who likes to eat children" ambience. The puzzles were aligned to the story and though challenging were not at all impossible with a subtle hint or two. We moved through the room rather quickly despite the challenge of some of the more physical-type puzzles that delayed our progress slightly. The space was small and we definitely recommend no more than four people in this room at a time to avoid that "it's way too crowded and I'm gonna murder you all" feeling that sometimes plagues players in confining escape rooms. Our game flowed smoothly and we finished with time to spare. In the end we successfully escaped the clutches of the cannibalistic witch - all while resisting the temptation to taste the candy treats that adorned the deceptively cute cabin. All in all we would call this a successful escape room experience.
