📖 THE STORY
Howdy partner? Ya'll are in the 1800's town of Sante Fe and survival of the fittest is of utmost importance during these times! Something feels off in the Old West and it's up to you to figure it out
and giddy up before time runs out!
🎯 HIT THE BULLSEYE
The main room is quite spacious and actually felt like a saloon back in the 1800's. The entrance to the saloon opens up with sliding doors as you make your way to the bar. The set design really transported us to the wild west!
The puzzle designs were well implemented and created an organic flow to the game. There were some unique challenges in there that we haven't seen before.
The non-linear puzzle design made it quite fun for us to work individually and as a team
There's a really cool mechanism in the room that surprised us as we didn't anticipated from the theme of the room
🧩 MISSED THE MARK
It would be quite difficult to play this game as a team of two. The game master had to come in to help us as an extra hand for one of the puzzles at the end. It's probably best to specify that as the beginning of the game so the team would come with more than two players or will be anticipating some help with this puzzle.
The latter part of the set design didn't have the same quality of finish as the beginning. It didn't feel like it was part of the same storyline.
🏹 TAKE A SHOT?
"The Wild West" has a movie set ambience to it which always elevates the whole escape room experience. If you're looking for an 1800's saloon theme with an unexpected twist at the end, you'll want to try this room. If you are looking to do a birthday party, they're able to host it inside the room so people who don't want to solve puzzles can be observers and cheerleaders for the puzzler solvers!
