Submarine: Trapped on a submarine and running out of air we had to find an air source and make our way back to the surface quickly.
Pros: This was our last stop on our whirlwind tour of Phoenix escape rooms. We have seen so many crazy cool sets in the rooms in the area and we were delighted to see that this room lived up to the others. The realistic materials, sounds and props created a truly immersive play experience. The puzzles also fit the nautical theme. Each puzzle consisted primarily of physical tasks to be completed. We really enjoyed the challenge. The electronic hint system notified us when we were lagging behind and the game master sent hints to help pace us.
Cons: The difficulty level was high but not impossible for two people. Three to four people would no doubt fare much better. Larger groups might feel very claustrophobic.
We wish the other games were open for us to play at the time we visited. But the excellence in set design in the Submarine game alone makes Escape the Room a must-visit destination. The unique puzzles moves it to the escape room fanatics bucket list. Escape the Room has earned the Escapologists' awards for Puzzle and Set Design for their Submarine escape room.
