We decided to try Last Minute Escape's other location this time in Montclair, NJ. This location also does not have an elevator and it's one flight of stairs. This location only has two rooms and we tried their easier one - "The Lost City". Before the playing, our game master noticed that one of the puzzles was broken, so he had to do a last minute "fix" which involved him personally coming into the room to give us a clue. We thought that kind of took away some of the aspect of the gameplay. The design of this room was rather simple. I would not focus too much on the design of the set. There was one part of the puzzle where we kind of had to guess the color for one of the puzzle pieces as we felt the colors were pretty similar and not sure if it's because it's faded due to "wear and tear". It would definitely help to fix some of these items prior to so that the players can benefit from the whole experience. There were some clever puzzle mechanisms that we haven't seen before. One being the one that malfunctioned prior to our game, so it would've been cool to see how it actually worked. We spent a good amount of time on the last piece of the puzzle but did manage to get out of the room with a second to spare!
