Escape Club is set up in a board game cafe, so there is always something to do in case the schedule is running late or you’re looking to do more that just an escape room. There is lots of parking in this commercial setting, but the entrance door off the main street is a little hidden. Once you find it though, you will be impressed at the large space and selection of games available. But we’re here for the room! After arriving, you get ushered into the command room, which sets you up for your mission and helps start your transition into the theme of the room. There are places to lock up valuables and hang jackets on the way to the room.
The set for this room is amazing. There is a live actor which sets the tone and plays well for the theme of the room and right into the story line given. The props are high quality unique pieces that fit in perfectly. The room makes use of all the space available to it, and you will be moving everywhere to escape. You may get distracted by the vast amount of props though so stay focused! Moving your way through the room, there’s a variety of puzzles and the mechanisms are smooth. The integration of the puzzles into the set was great. There is a need to communicate across the room to finish some puzzles so be ready to work as a team.
Getting hints has the game master coming into the room, which is done in character, providing an opportunity for staff to show off their acting skills but could break the immersion if they aren’t feeling it that day. We had three people in this room and it was doable within the time available. There is plenty of space for larger groups and enough things going on to keep a larger group engaged.
