🎯 HIT THE BULLSEYE

  • This room has been here for a few years but there was not much wear and tear from play which shows they maintained the room. Everything from the props to the décor was in great shape.

  • The décor and props that they used had a nice authentic touch to it. The things that mattered had a high-quality feel and looked fantastic.

  • One of the puzzles was a different kind of light puzzle that we had never seen before and was very cool to play with.

  • There was a reveal in the middle of the room that was unexpected and very creative.

  • The room was not bogged down with red herrings and unused items. Everything that stuck out in the room had a purpose.

🧩 MISSED THE MARK

  • The ending seemed a little anti-climactic since there was a lag in performing the last task and the final video. As well as if you were not in the right place, you could not hear what was being said in the final video.

🏹 TAKE A SHOT?

One of the neat things is that the Senator’s Battle can be played as a regular room or what they call “battle mode”. In battle mode, they have 2 identical rooms set up and you can compete with another team on who can finish the room first. There is also a progress tracker on top of the door that will tell you how much of the room you have completed and how much of the room the other team has completed. Absolutely for the competitive players or trying to determine who are the top escape room players in your group of friends.


For anyone who likes the spy theme escape rooms, this is a solid one to play. There were a few puzzles that we felt used some more difficult solving method which any enthusiast would be able to solve but might not be as easy for some escape room beginners. There was a lot of space in the room, but the puzzles were linear so 4 people felt like a perfect number for everyone to see everything and help solve the puzzles. This room could definitely be played with 6 people though. If you are up for a night of spying, round up your top agents and give this room a try.
