I loved this room so much. The set was incredible, the technology added so much to the experience, and the gameplay was a ton of fun! If you want the best puzzles, do the Roosevelt Room. If you want to have the most fun, do this one. (Better yet, do both - they're worth it) This room is definitely less puzzle-y and more game-y than their other rooms, but I thought it was by far the most enjoyable.

Reviews by escape room review sites

Palace Games succeeded in blurring the lines between real life and video game. The Edison Escape Room was a brilliant display of technology in escape room design. The detailed set was phenomenal. The gameplay ranged from well-executed standard puzzles to wholly unorthodox challenges in the physical environment, all of which leaned into teamwork. Palace Games stitched these elements together with technology that brightened each element individually and energized the interconnected experience. The Edison Escape Room was as impressive as it was fun.
The level of polish and automation along with the creative set of puzzles makes this room a standout. Everything looks great, plays well and the automation was seamless.
