I'd heard a lot of great things about Escapologic and whilst this isn't one of their most highly rated it still provided an enjoyable scenario where you are trying to get a chemical sample before the next big earthquake hits. This was the third room that opened and I think it's showing its age, there's a variety of puzzles but nothing that really held us up (we'd have got out faster bar a search fail). This would be a great room for beginners, it also features a split start where one member of the team gets inserted separately.
A couple of equipment fails prevent this room from scoring more highly for me.
A clever central concept and a fun steampunk-laboratory setting (complete with on-theme clues) tie all the puzzles together. The original room at Escapologic but it (mostly) belies its age.
My first escape room failure! Mostly due to a search fail and spending ages on the wrong path. I think the GM could have done a better job of keeping us on track (when I subsequently re-played we had a different, better, GM) but that’s just an excuse...
This is a super spooky (though not full-on horror) room which leans heavily on atmosphere and literal darkness for effect. There is also a lot of crawling and getting in awkward spaces. The actual puzzles are relatively few in number and there’s a relatively high level of misdirection. These aren’t necessarily criticisms, just observations about what the room is like and hence who is likely to enjoy it.
Absolutely brilliant room, flawless in design, decor, and execution. A great theme, ingenious clue system, and a real ‘wow factor’. Tough puzzles even with 5 people, but always logical and with a clear flow.
An unmissable room for any escape enthusiast.
