It’s been awhile since we’ve visited Epic Escape Room LI. Read our review of the “Killer Feature PG-13" room to find out more about our experience at Epic Escape Room LI. They currently have two locations with one being in Brooklyn, NY. The owners have informed us that the Brooklyn location will likely close soon and maybe one of the games will be moved over to the LI location. So if you haven’t gotten the chance to play there yet, this is the time! There is a parking lot behind this location and on the streets but regardless you’ll have to enter from the front. Note that there are steps to walk up as they are located on the second floor.
Today, we are trying out two of their rooms and the first one is called “Vanished”. It seems like the amazing magician Balthazar has vanished and now we have to go through his belongings to find out what happened to him. As we entered the room, it felt like there was a lot to do and there was! The puzzles are not all linear so if you had a group in here, you can have some people searching and some solving puzzles. The escape room owners do build all of their rooms in-house and we can’t really compare it to some production rooms we’ve seen with the higher budget range, so it wasn’t as immersive in terms of the set design. Also, since this is an older room, some items do seem like they are worn out and could use some upgrades so that they can be fully functional. It would be great if it could be intertwined with the storyline of the “vanishing” magician as we didn’t get a concluded ending of what had really happened to him. However, we did enjoy all the puzzles as they were all different in their own ways so if you are a puzzle and lock lover, this is the room for you.
We’ve escaped the room with just the two of us with plenty of time to spare. Next, we are excited to try out their newest room called “Disorderly Conduct”.
