📖 THE STORY

A distress transmission has been received from the research team at Renaissance Laboratories on Tiki Island. The only information that you were able to gather before the message got cut off was that there's been a breach in the security system. With billions of dollars in experimental research at risk, you and your team are deployed via a chopper to the jungles of Tiki Island where the native Mohari tribe live. Your mission is to stealthily traverse though the jungle, locate the lab, recover the dinosaur DNA research and make it back to chopper undetected from the tribe.

🎯 HIT THE BULLSEYE

  • When it comes to the design for a dinosaur island-themed escape room, I immediately think of "Jurassic Park". Between all the detail that's required for a jungle experience and a genetic lab testing facility, players going in with lots of expectations. Luckily, we never have to worry about that with Captured LV Escape Room. Having played all 4 of the escape room games at their Bethlehem location, we already knew they would deliver!

  • I'm not going to spoil anything but WHAT AN ENTRANCE! We're utterly surprised as the creator didn't tell us about it and I'm glad she didn't. Once we got into the jungle, the fire torches, tribal symbols and props, animal sounds and lush greenery made us forgot we're in an escape room in PA. We have to commend the creators on their vision and imagination. As we unlocked the latter part of the game, more surprises kept "popping" out. The ambient atmosphere and build quality transported us directly onto a movie set as we felt we stepped foot into the village of the native Mahori tribe.

  • Because this an action/ adventure themed escape game, the room gave us a good mixture of challenges, especially physical puzzles! All of the puzzles were cleverly constructed into the set design along with various special props. What you would expect to be a challenge in a jungle or infiltration was all implemented really well into the game.


🧩 MISSED THE MARK

  • Once again, I don't have much to say about this section. This room is pretty solid as long as all the mechanics are in working order. One particular puzzle could be hard to interpret at first so don't be afraid to use a clue. Some items could be hidden really well so dedicate a good searcher.


🏹 TAKE A SHOT?

One thing that we can always count on from Captured LV Escape Room is the all around quality of their games. From the creative intro videos to the decorative entrances to the unique storyline to the set design to the entertaining puzzles bring together an unforgettable experience for us as players. The backstory for "The Island" is enough to peak anyone's interest especially if you're a fan of action & adventure themes. As you and your team are dispatched to Tiki Island with a list of objectives, you start to realize that the mission the lies ahead of you is no walk in the park. What intrigued us the most about the storyline is the unknown. "The Island" packs a bunch with an adrenaline rush forcing you into survival mode!!
