Can you and your team get through the clinic in 60 minutes and get the cure for the zombie virus? Only time will tell…
For players that enjoy the immersion of horror escape rooms, the immersion aspect of this room was one of the more unique I’ve seen in a while. Right from the beginning, you are pulled into the storyline and are frantically working with your group to find a way out. The use of sound effects, lighting, a creepy soundtrack, and jump scares really established a mood of fear and urgency while progressing through each room. The props and the overall room seemed sturdy, well maintained, and believable. Nothing felt fragile although there was a bit of wear on some of their props and puzzles.
There were a variety of puzzles in this room that made you “think outside the box”; however the quantity of puzzles present in the room was a bit lacking (less than 10 puzzles) for our group. On the plus side, all their puzzles stayed true to the theme and were not the “usual” puzzles (combination/number locks) that one sees in escape rooms. They also used the right mix of technology in their puzzles which was refreshing and entertaining.
The location of this room is a bit harder to find since it’s underneath a freeway overpass but it’s located near downtown LA and about a 10 minute drive from some restaurants and the Art District. Additionally, they have their own parking lot which is convenient for bigger groups. The escape room is in a giant warehouse so it can get a little chilly (bring a sweater if you get cold easily). The waiting area in the warehouse also had a couple of benches for players to hang out and wait for their game to start. The game hosts were extremely friendly and accommodating, offering us bottled water and free use of their lockers (other places require a check-in on Yelp, etc). We also got our picture taken on an area with a green screen which we all thought was pretty cool.
Overall, our group of six (just the right number of people) had a couple of scares while progressing through the room and everyone felt that “fun house”/maze feel. Recommend this room for beginners going with some advanced players that are looking for a little “scare” outside of the Halloween season. However, advanced players and escape artists may be left craving more.
