One of our goals for creating "ESCAPETHEROOMers” was to provide subscribers w/ the entire escape room experience so that they know what to expect before making their selections. In addition to the escape room gameplay, customer service is always taken into consideration when we write our reviews. First, we're going to provide you w/ some of THE PROS: We were excited to visit the one and only escape room available in Oranjestad, Aruba - "Escape Room Aruba". They have a great location right off of L.G. Smith Boulevard (the main strip where all the hotels & restaurants are located). They are located across the street from the Hyatt Hotel (across the parking lot). There are tons of buses available w/a stop right near the facility. You can take Bus L10 (towards Malmok)/ L10A (towards Arashi) or L10B (towards Marriott). They all pass by the bus stop Hyatt Hotel where you can get on/off. Once you enter inside, there's a check-in desk and some lockers for your personal belongings. There's only one escape room available - "CSI Escape Room". Prior to entering your room, you are given a CSI vest to wear and one briefcase. Once you enter inside, you are inspecting a crime scene. The decor of the room was quite impressive and definitely set the tone for an immersive experience. There were some puzzle designs that we've never come across before and they went w/ the storyline very well. THE CONS: We didn't really get a full positive experience from the host. Most of the hints were very unclear and we did not get a clear explanation at the end. We feel that with improved customer service, this room deserves a much higher rating than this. Weather we escape or not or with a lot of time left or not, we are not really there for the competing factor, we wanted to enjoy the room and have fun.
ETR Overall rating: 8/10
