Our third stop in Honolulu, Hawaii is at the Chambers Escape Games. There's a parking lot to the left of their location which is actually cheaper than paying the street meter. They are located on the 2nd floor with stairs and elevator access. In terms of size, this is the largest escape room location we've been to in Hawaii. Once you enter the lobby, you are already feel like you are being prepared for an incredible adventure. The Anubis, Ancient Guardians of the temple awaits for your arrival. The owner also cleverly built a wall with lego bricks so remember to check that out! The owner informed us the game is still in beta-testing mode and as we've beta tested many times, we were ready for what's to come.
As we walked with the owner down the hallway to a black door, we were shocked at what we saw when the door opened. The surround sound music system and the perfect balance of the light ambience of the room felt like we were instantly teleported deep within an ancient temple. There's real sand, concrete slab doors, and very well-made artifacts pieces for game play. This game incorporated a good mixture of physical key locks and magnetic locks. The game flow was great and there were no red herrings whatsoever. There's a good balance of brain and physical exercise which we rarely see in a game. This escape room focused a lot on an immersive feel for the player and also storytelling. We felt like the production value was definitely "Disney World ride" like. As we completed the game with some time left on the clock, the victory music made us feel like heroes. We were quite sad to be transported back to the real world again. This did not feel like beta-testing as we didn't have anything to add at the end in terms of any corrections that needed to be made.
This is Chambers first escape room as they only opened January starting with VR escape games which we also happened to try. Read about our VR game review of "Depth of Osiris". We definitely hope to return one day for their new room to come! Check out our YouTube video above for a sneak peek of the location, interview with the owner, the room and more!
