Just south of downtown Denver is the Englewood branch of the Epic Escape Game. The building entrance was easy to spot with large signage. We parked just around the corner in the free two-hour street parking. Upon entering, you walk down into the bright open lobby where the receptionist checked us in, we had some water, played with the test locks and sat on the leather couches. Just down the hall was a clean, single stall bathroom with fun art on the walls. A neat touch was a business card drop with the promise that your card will eventually be cycled into one of their games.
Sweet Dreams was set in a candy store and most of our group agreed that you felt like you were really there inside of a confectionary. The smell of freshly baked treats was a fantastic touch. The room did show some wear to both furniture and props though this did not impact the game play in any negative way. Sweet Tooth offers a good mix of high quality puzzles. There was a lot of variety, from fairly novel puzzles we’d not seen before to unexpected multiple-step puzzles. The array of types allowed for everyone in our 4 player group to shine at different moments. 4 people is a good number to play this room.
This game definitely immerses your senses in the environment, from the on-theme clues right down to the smell of the room. While there are attempts to consistently include narrative elements (some of which are pretty clever), the environmental immersion contributes more to the overall fun than the narrative immersion. We recommend this game to most players—beginners to seasoned veterans.
