Mafia: Deep inside a hidden speakeasy, we had to locate incriminating photos and a pile of cash before the mafia returned.
The Alchemist: A secret society and a sacred stone - could we uncover the secrets hidden in this room?
Pros: The rooms here were small but nicely decorated to theme. The puzzles were all aligned to the story and flowed with the general game. The gamemasters told us what to do when we were stuck.
Cons: There was no real communication system to notify when we needed help. We waved our hands as instructed and verbally asked for help. We asked three times for help before our gamemaster responded. When he did respond, he had no idea where we were in the game and so we had to catch him up to where we were at in the game. The "hint" was actually just what to do next. This happened in both the games we played. We found ourselves stuck on several puzzles mostly because of faulty locks. With an improved communication and hint system this could be a good middle of the road escape room experience.
