We came to this location later in the day, so the streets were dark and deserted; other stores with their gates closed. Because of this we were able to park close, but we may be searching for an available meter if we came here at a busier time of day. The lobby has some lush seating and snack options so if we wouldn’t be struggling if we got here early. We were greeted into the room by a great game master introduction that could have left a little more to the imagination. The story is lined up, we are ready to participate in this study of escape rooms and we are blindfolded and directed into the room.
Starting out separated, communication is key in this room. There are some sticky components so be patient when getting through to new areas. Take a look around at the interesting set design when continuing on. As we moved through the space, the story and theming develops, so we had to pay attention to the information we were given. The scientists of this experiment wanted to test our out of the box thinking, so we were kept on our toes the whole way through. Unique elements brought a different dimension to this room; some really hit the mark but some were a stretch to incorporate into the theme.
This room is jam packed with puzzles. With three enthusiasts we were always busy. This is one where we couldn’t assume we were almost done, because we probably aren’t. We also wanted to enjoy the story development so we had to balance both. There are a couple places where we could have potentially removed a necessary hint so be careful when moving or removing anything. Though outside knowledge isn’t necessary, it is helpful to save on some reading time.
Get the F Out also gives a chance to get a bonus prize with an additional in-room puzzle. We had to decide whether to focus on getting out of the room on time, or seeing what’s in the prize box. There are some great homages to the escape room classics which any enthusiasts will enjoy seeing. This is a large space which can accommodate a large group, and you’ll need all the help you can get. The scientists only need so many subjects before their experiment is complete. Check out this room before it gets filed away with all the other scientific breakthroughs.
