🧩 MISSED THE MARK

  • After careful deliberation, it's evident that the Jazz Parlor is an exceptionally crafted escape room with a seamless puzzle flow. However, one minor concern arose during our experience: the room's size felt somewhat limiting for our group of five. At certain junctures, particularly in narrower sections, the space felt a bit cramped, detracting slightly from the overall enjoyment of the game. Nevertheless, this small issue did not significantly diminish the overall quality of the experience.
