Inheritance: We were set to inherit a fortune. But only if we could solve our crazy deceased relative's riddles in order to locate it.
Mad Scientist: Another mad scientist bent on vengeance. We had to find a way to defuse the bomb before we fell victim to his plot.
Pros: Let us begin by saying that the owner at Vault Escape was completely awesome. She clearly loves what she does and we appreciated her joy and the effort she put into her rooms. Also, she made a great game master with her attention to our progress and helpful hints as needed. The rooms themselves had clear, logical game flows. The puzzles were quite solvable and overall tied to the theme of each room. We can honestly say we enjoyed playing the games and figuring out each puzzle. The linear nature of the room also helped our progress. The rooms were small, best for two to four players. The sets, however, coincided with the general theme of the room.
Cons: A few of the puzzles tripped us up a bit with possible alternatives, but overall these are nicely designed games and rooms. Set-design is basic, but it works! It is mostly about good game flow and puzzles to us. We recommend this as a solid room escape experience among the best Illinois has to offer.
