We had four people in total attempting this room, but you'll need at least a minimum of 3 to complete the puzzles. This particular location (Montclair) does not have an elevator available. You will have to climb one flight up. The lobby had some cool props and posters and ample seats for waiting. The parking is quite tricky, so if you are from out of town it's best to go at night time. The design of the room feels pretty immersive as you do actually feel like you are in a forest and a cabin. They really make you work for hints. After the 3 are used up, you will have to sing and dance until the game masters grant you your hints. The puzzles are mostly on the tech side vs. the classic locks, but it did feel a bit delayed in some incidences. We didn't have enough time to finish the room, mostly because we wasted too much time in the beginning. It would also help if one of the players likes reading as we thought their "runbook" was a bit too wordy. I would suggest if you are stuck in the beginning, use a hint right away as there's a lot more to do later on. They encourage you to return for a second attempt and only explain up to where you finished. Being that we didn't escape the room, we can't tell you if the ending is impactful or not.
