Really excellent game. Good integration of cut scenes, so that both the intro and outro were unusually cool. It is strongly recommended that you play with 4 different devices, because each device is sent different puzzle elements for several of the puzzles. This meant that we had to be really intentional about working together, which was terrific. Some quite tricky puzzles, with some imaginative elements, and good integration with the theme. Among the best remote escape rooms we've done (out of about 40).
Can't wait for them to be able to open their in-person rooms again but in the meantime, they've created a magical remote version of The Vanishing Act that is so so good! Hands down, the best Zoom call we've had during lockdown!
Loved this room. One of the best I've done. Lots to do, some clever puzzles I've never seen before, and slick use of video, with a good back story. Highly recommend.
- We played The Vanishing Act over the weekend and it kicked butt. Seriously, this was my favorite virtual room so far. Summer and her team did an awesome job!
Reviews by escape room review sites
We've played remote games before where prerecorded video elements were quite obvious and made the game play quite difficult to follow. In this game, you won't even notice what parts were prerecorded and what was live. Lucurio did a great job stitching the two together seamlessly.
The puzzles were designed to work smoothly with the inventory system and that made the experience felt like we're playing there in person. Although we rather much play there in person, this was definitely gratifying for the time being. So gather a team of friends and try to solve this magical mystery (with a little twist) now!
The Vanishing Act is a live video adaptation of a real Escape Room. The game started with an outdoor video sequence in front of a theater, which let us enter the story in a believable way.

In real life, I'm sure The Vanishing Act is a decent, good-looking room, with well-designed puzzles. But the remote experience goes one level above, through seamless prerecorded sequences and a number of puzzles being fully integrated in the game's interface.
Overall, The Vanishing Act is a perfect transitioned physical room to the remote world. The use of the most advanced & comprehensive inventory system we’ve seen so far in the virtual escape room world, mixed with the detailed story and illusion of where present live game starts to where it ends, Locurio have it covered. We loved every part of the experience and that is why it has rated so highly! A massive thank you to our games host who played Sam, as he brings the room alive with his acting over the course of the 90+ minutes of suspense, panic and frantic puzzle solving.
