Read our reviews on “Do Not Disturb” and "The Tomb" for more detailed information on Escapism.

The last room we are attempting at Escapism was their largest room called “Meltdown”. This room could fit up to 10 people and the minimum booking for the room is 4 people. We were able to complete the room with ample time left with just the 2 of us.

Once again, we were led down the hallway but this time as workers at a nuclear power plant. This was our first day on the job and something has gone wrong. We have 60 minutes to shutdown the system to avoid a catastrophe. The owner really took the time to construct out the details in a nuclear power plant and you can tell by the heavy steel floor plates that covered the entire room. The puzzles were more challenging than the other two rooms since there was a bit more reading and science involved. You did not need any outside knowledge for any of the puzzles although knowing the periodic table may give you a bit of advantage. There was one puzzle in the latter part of the game that had a faulty trigger even though we didn’t complete the puzzle, something opened anyways. That may be worth looking into so that lucky guesses could be avoided. This room had far less props that were just décor so remember what you have already used and what you haven’t. Also, you should be very clear on the path for solving this escape room.  

All in all, we had a lot of fun in all of the rooms at Escapism. They were all unique in terms of themes and different in terms of puzzle designs. We can’t wait for their newest game - “The Score” to be completed as we heard it’s going to be a huge room and a challenge for new players as well as enthusiasts alike since the final goal here is not to really escape but to have the highest value of the stolen items from the vault and that will be your final score. We have to bring back up for this one!
