Our last and final stop for the day is at Olde City Escape Games in Philadelphia, PA. Yes... we bounced around from Delaware to Pennsylvania to New Jersey and back to Pennsylvania! With all the driving and the rooms that we did today, we ended on a high note. Olde City Escape Games is a really cool establishment. It gives off that 80's "Stranger Things/ Black Mirror" vibe. They currently have two rooms available to choose from with a third on the way. The one that we are trying today is "The Midnighters". Parking the area could be a little hard to find due to the fact that the location is surrounded by museums, restaurants, bars and the Liberty Bell within walking distance. We were fortunate enough to meet with the owners - Brooks & Vi to learn more about the company. Both Brooks & Vi come from an artistic background and their concepts and designs clearly show in their work. In regards to "The Midnighters", the room design was quite impressive and had us fully immersed. From the storyline to the puzzle challenges, along with the music playing in the background, everything was constructed very well as it set the tone for our experience. There was a good mixture of old school and modern day tech. Without giving away too much, there was one puzzle that we found challenging mainly due to the fact that it required "a lot..." in order to continue on. Maybe that could be adjusted or kept in the game. Either way it was doable after a few attempts. We are really looking forward to trying their other room - "A Quest for Freedom" and the new one coming soon - "2084".
