The Dark Room: Trapped in a mysterious dark room with cryptic symbols on the wall, we had to discover the secret of what happened here and find our way out safely.
The Experiment: A scientist has disappeared leaving his experiments incomplete. We had to finish the experiment and discover the truth of what happened to the professor.
Pros: The Dark Room puzzles were challenging but we worked our way through the process with limited guidance. The storyline for the Experiment was very interesting and unique. We really enjoyed the puzzles in this room which were tied into the overall theme. I was most impressed by the fact that we actually learned a bit of history and science in the process. Kudos to the game designer for proving that education can be fun. The game master was helpful and attentive. We appreciated his enthusiasm and referrals to other area escape rooms. He helped generate excitement about the scavenger hunt challenge designed to encourage us to visit other escape rooms.
Cons: The set design was fairly basic in both rooms and did little to add to the ambiance. We struggled with the logic of a few of the puzzles in the Experiment and required a few more hints than usual. The Dark Room seemed fairly straight-forward but we could have used more flashlights. Escape rooms are no fun in the dark!
