Located in Fishers, a suburb of Indianapolis, Indiana, you will find The Escape Room Fishers. There are plenty of nearby shops, restaurants, coffee places, and ice cream shops. Additionally, there’s plenty of parking on the second floor of the attached parking garage. The entrance to the escape room was like nothing we’ve seen before, and we were instantly impressed and excited! We were offered a beverage upon entry, and they had plenty of drinks for sale (including alcoholic). They had lots of merchandise for sale (apparel, jewelry, pens), lots of practice puzzles and locks, and the lobby space itself was huge! The owners and employees were incredibly sweet and personable, which made our experience even better! One thing we’d love to see them add is lockers to keep our belongings so that we didn’t take our stuff with us to each room. After relaxing and talking to the owners for a bit, we were excited to get started on our adventures! One thing we’d like to note is that the owners were kind enough to have a different employee run each of our games so we could get a feel for their different styles—thank you for that!
Our first room was Escape from the Titanic, and we couldn’t wait to get started! They had an element of immersion to really make you feel like you were on the titanic, and the quality of its build was great! We also appreciated the antique furniture and props, which were still in very good condition. There were not a ton of props, but they felt well thought out and overall the room felt like it was designed well. As we moved through the room, the props felt like they got fewer and fewer, however, we still enjoyed the quality of what was there.
We felt immersed in this room in terms of set, however, if you have vertigo this room will definitely be a challenge. We loved the décor and build-out, and some of the props were used in a unique way that helped us feel immersed in the story. Unfortunately, there were several times we felt stuck on the puzzles or in the puzzle flow, which took us out of immersion. Additionally, we felt like we came out of immersion when the game master made announcements. We wish there were sound effects of people, the water, etc. to make us feel like we were really on a sinking ship, but overall, the build did help us feel immersed in the set.
We wanted to love this room based on our impression walking in and the set itself, unfortunately, the puzzles were not what we were hoping they would be. They are not bad, there were just some leaps in logic and we had trouble finding the puzzle flow. With some tweaks to their puzzles, we really think this room could be amazing!
The set of this room was definitely unique and we really appreciated the time and effort put into building it and styling it in a way that would feel like part of the Titanic. With that being said, some tweaks to the puzzles could really increase immersion and fun throughout. Our game master was wonderful and made it a fun experience! We would recommend this to smaller groups or newer players, and as a reminder, if you have vertigo think twice or bring some ginger ale!
