Dean Waylon is the front man of the band, Us, Them, Or Dean. Tonight, they will be performing the kick-off show of their concert run at the Colosseum Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.

Over his four-decade career, life in the limelight left Dean increasingly indulgent and jaded. Fans and critics alike have been predicting his retirement for a while now. Sure enough, Dean recently announced that this production will be his last.

As the music reporter for the local paper, you’ve got your backstage pass, and you’re eager to interview Dean while he is still an active performer. The show starts soon, and you’ve been sitting for ages with the other reporters in the media room - Dean is running late. However, as more time passes, it’s becoming clear that something is wrong.

Checking in Dean’s dressing room, his manager finds Dean’s personal belongings, but no sign of Dean. Word circulates around the backstage, and the crowd of onlookers become increasingly suspicious as security tries to manage the situation. While the other reporters race to be the first to blog this curious development, you discreetly slip into Dean’s dressing room.

Find the clues and solve the puzzles as you retrace the career of Dean Waylon. If you’re quick, you can get the scoop on his disappearance before security catches you.

A fun and friendly room, which was bright and accessible.  Nice logical puzzles.

Some nice ideas but nothing that will blow you away. The room felt a little sparse and felt like more could've been done with the theme.

An unusual and effective setting inside a rock star's dressing room, trying to figure out where he's gone before he's due to go on stage. A wide range of puzzles including one or two concepts I hadn't seen before, and a nice story to follow throughout. Recommended! 

Reviews by escape room review sites

My escape newbie teamies found the room not too easy and not too difficult. Therefore, this would be a perfect choice for someone who hasn’t played an escape room before. More seasoned players however, might find (particularly the first few) aspects of the room, to not be challenging enough.
