Twisted Escapes is a fairly new company, but its developers have surprised us with the “readiness for business” of their location. The lobby was beautifully designed with a comfortable seating area with some puzzle games. The hallways are very wide with fun decors throughout. When we went, they had 3 games and in a month’s time they have already produced another 2 new games ready for Halloween! They are the fastest "room-swapping" company that we’ve ever encountered. The “Ransom”, which was the game that we played, is still active so make sure you try it soon before it gets swapped out again!
One of the owners was our game master that debriefed us. He’s quite humorous and you’ll also recognize him in the trailer for the room. Apparently, the crooks got our uncle and have demanded a heavy ransom. We must go into his place to find the money and get out in time to save him. This room was quite spacious and everything was very well organized and maintained. All the game pieces were set up against the wall. It’s quite easy for a large group to come in to spread out and look for clues. Our recommended size is 4 although we were able to get out in time with just the two of us. Due to the sparse spread of the props, there was no place for hidden “wow” moments for us since everything was visible. It would be great to see if they can utilize some of the space to create another section with a different theme within the storyline. The puzzles had a nice flow and the only time we got stuck was on something super simple and of course we overcomplicated it for ourselves.
Twisted Escapes is very friendly and active in their community and they accommodate a lot of celebration events. We were told that they even organized a "baby gender reveal" party in one of their retired rooms! We hope to return soon to try their spooky Halloween-themed rooms as the titles seems pretty "spook-tacular"!
