Located in Little Tokyo in Los Angeles, Real Escape Game’s “Trust on Trial” is a great place to put your wits on trial after enjoying some delicious Japanese food in the area.
“Trust on Trial” had some pretty solid props and everything fit in with the theme. Fans of the Zero Escape game will appreciate the references at various points during the game but for those not familiar with the game series it doesn’t take away from the overall experience. The introduction given to groups also helped set the mood of the escape and helped immerse all players into the unknown.
“Trust on Trial” does a pretty great job at involving all players and one can feel that sense of urgency and dread throughout the escape. There were a variety of puzzles and many involved communication and working together which is at the core of escape rooms. The story was well thought out and cohesive and the room was well decorated to fit the theme throughout.
The great thing about “Trust on Trial” is that it allows players with different strengths to participate. The puzzles were challenging enough that players could have that “A-ha!” moment and experience the satisfaction of contributing towards the group objective. The puzzles in this room were also one of the more unique puzzles and all worked perfectly so there were no complaints there.
Real Escape Game is located on the 2nd floor of a shopping plaza near the “Friendship Knot” in Little Tokyo district in Downtown Los Angeles. There’s some street parking and a parking garage that is walking distance to the plaza. The location is close to restaurants, tea shops and boutique stores for players to check out either before or after their escape. The waiting area can accommodate groups of up to ten people and the game masters like to get to know everyone before the game starts. After the game, they asked if anyone had questions about any of the puzzles and our group photo was taken. We had the privilege (and luck) to meet one of the game designers that night too. The staff was accommodating and friendly and it was the icing on top of their great customer service.
“Trust on Trial” is a great room for escape room newbies and seasoned escape room artists. It was entertaining, had a cohesive story, and the twists that you encounter throughout the room are challenging yet enjoyable. The staff, the setting, and the story made this room immersive for a majority of our group. Unlike most rooms, the bigger the group the better, since groups will be split up in the beginning of the escape room.
Overall, “Trust on Trial” will definitely put your trust in your teammates on trial throughout the entire escape room experience. In the end, it doesn’t disappoint and you end up with a renewed sense of trust in your teammates. Great team building experience, highly recommended.
