Spellbound: A deadly curse has afflicted the town and trapped inside the evil wizard’s lair we had to find a way out and break the curse.
Task Force Agency: As potential future secret agents, we had to prove our worth in order to qualify for admission to the academy.
Pros: Although we were tired after our flight to the Los Angeles area, the game master at Enchanted Escape Room quickly improved our spirits with his enthusiasm and joy. First we tackled Spellbound. This other-worldly adventure through the spirit realm challenged us with a variety of magic-themed puzzles. We had little trouble progressing through the game with few hints thanks to good game flow and logical puzzle design. We had a similar experience as undercover agents playing Task Force Agency. The game had several unique physical puzzles that deviated from the monotony of typical escape room word or math puzzles. We needed a few more hints than usual to move us along, but we were ultimately able to uncover the sleeper cells and succeed in our mission.
Cons: The set design was somewhat cheesy (mostly with the game Spellbound). Cheap props tended to detract a bit from the magic of an otherwise great room. In Task Force Agency, shoddy equipment or puzzle pieces complicated or delayed the puzzle-solving. For those who play lots of escape rooms, you will recognize this as a pretty typical phenomenon for most establishments. But in Los Angeles the escape rooms tend to go above and beyond in set design, so this one is a bit atypical of the norm in the area. This should not deter people from playing. Enchanted Escape Room is definitely a good, solid game-play experiencs and is definitely recommended for both beginner and advanced players alike!
