Reviews by escape room review sites
I would have loved to play this room in person as the set design looked amazing. You do not need to have seen the movie in order to play this escape room but out of curiosity we watched the movie after and the decor was spot on. The attention to detail on the props could be seen even on camera. There were lot of "ooooo" and "ahhh" moments from each of our teammates as the secrets of the rooms unveiled.
As an escape room proper, I'd say it goes beyond "nice", with tons of well-clued puzzles, multiple rooms, and some nice audio-visual effects. As an avatar-led experience, it does lose some of its appeal - some special effects would be a lot more effective to someone being there in person - but "Shemp", our man on location, still managed to be funny & engaging, and Hourglass has licensed the "inventory" system from Rock Ave, so you know it works great. Where the room really shines, though, is as a tribute to the movie it's based on.
