Read our “Top Secret Mission” review to find out more about the Amazing Escape Room Cherry Hill location. Our next room here was recommended by the staff and it’s their hardest room at this location called “Night at the Museum”. The story line is that we are thieves sent on a mission to steal the Star Diamond Broach inside the Art Museum of Cherry Hill. We only have 60 minutes until the security system comes back on and the security guards will be sure to capture us then.
This room started in a dim lit setting since we are sneaking into the museum. At times, it was hard to read some of the clues due to that. Perhaps a few flashlights at the beginning could be helpful. There was a starting puzzle that was cleverly made. We appreciate the visual aspect of the puzzles since it is art related. There was one that we just couldn’t visualize for a long time and finally asked for a clue. The game master’s hints did not help much and once again clues took a very long time to get to us. There were times we literally just stood there waiving our hands at the camera for 5 minutes straight. This definitely added to our frustration given the circumstances. The room’s props and finishes felt a bit worn since it is one of their older rooms. There are some pieces we felt could use some maintenance or updating. As we proceeded with the game, we realized that it is very difficult with two people as there are not only puzzles, but there was a good amount of searching involved. There was also a “physical” puzzle that was present which added time to solve but we didn’t feel strongly about it being linked with the story line. We did not escape at the end with two people and the rating above for difficulty level is based on two person.
Overall, we had fun in the room as it was definitely tough, and we love to be challenged but it would have been more enjoyable if there wasn't a delay in the hint system. In our opinion, in a hard room, every second feels like hours when you don’t receive that clue to move on as you know there’s a lot more that you need to do after. We hope this issue gets resolved soon. If you are up for a challenging room, definitely give “Night at the Museum” a try! Amazing Escape Room has different escape-themed rooms at different locations. We can’t wait to try another location and see what their rooms are like there!
