This place was easy to find since the entrance is a storefront on the street. Since they have approximately 3,900 sq ft, it feels very spacious inside. I feel like they could have done more with the place since there's not much decor in the waiting area. If you check in online, you can get a free soda or water while waiting. The special thing about this escape room is that they give you 70 minutes instead of the normal 60 minutes which could come in handy. But our attempt to escape "Room X", we didn't need the extra 10 minutes. We were very excited to try the room based on the high tech videos and the it was the first time we experienced laser sensors in a room. We were a bit disappointed at the number of puzzles built in as there weren't that many. The ending was also not that impactful. We had a group of 5 and we were able to successfully escape with plenty of time to spare. Teamwork is eminent in this game, as your group will start off divided into two. Although there were some high tech elements, it was definitely not comparable to some of the other rooms that we've tried. If you are going to choose a room here, we would highly recommend "The Penitentiary" instead.
ETR Overall rating: 5/10
