Check out our review on “Escape the Final Act: The Houdini Experience” for more information on Electric City Escape’s location. We are now ready to tackle the second room here - “Escape the Coal Mine”.
The event happened in Mine #109. As we were about to leave for work from the mine at the end of the day, a large explosion sound occurred. We think it was because the mine boss doesn’t want us to be discussing the Shenandoah Bridge plot at Molly Maguires’ home tonight and wanted to trap us in. We must find a way out through the Dead Rock Run before methane consumes our lungs in an hour.
The set design of this room was on point. You immediately felt like you were inside of a coal mine with the dim lighting, cave-like rock formations, and real metal fences. The added sound effects and music ambience was also a great contributor to the immersive atmosphere. We had a little bit of a hard time at the beginning of this game as some clues were a bit hard to see with the dim lighting so make sure you look at everything carefully. We liked how the tools were implemented as part of the puzzle designs as it made the game feel a lot more real. You would need to pace yourself for this game as there’s still a lot to do ahead. We would’ve liked to see more of a disbursement in terms of utilization on a “puzzle center” in the latter room. It would be great if some puzzle locks or puzzles could be on other sections of the room since the room was quite spacious. This would also help to spread the group if there’s a larger amount of people. Our recommended size for this room is 3-4ppl but 2 people can definitely manage the room as we escaped with some time remaining.
We are very excited for Electric City Escape's new room - "Luna Park" to be released as it is currently being constructed. All we can say is that it’s a circus-themed room. We will definitely be back to visit this exuberant town and escape room location in the near future!
