Read our review of the “Unknown" room at The Great Escape Room Challenge and more about this escape location. They also recently changed their company name to Mad Escape in case you are searching online (it’s the same company).
We had to come back to try their other games since “Unknown” was so good. Today we started with their “Bank Heist” game. As always, we always love when the story already started prior to entering the room. We were led to a set design that looked like a bank building and the game master debriefed us there. But as thieves it only made sense to enter through the alley. The teller windows looked quite authentic along with other props you would see in a bank. We were stumped on one of the props since we haven’t seen it used in recent days anymore at a bank but was able to figure it out quickly with a clue. One suggestion I would make is to have some items refurbished as they are pretty worn out by now from the previous game plays. The puzzles were on point and easy to follow. We always enjoy the surprise factor by their set design and this room did it again. With just the two of us, we successfully completed our mission and escaped with some loot. It’s definitely a fun room and I would think kids would particularly enjoy the room for some unique aspects of the puzzles. If you love spy movies and want to channel your inner “James Bond” and show off some of your “007” moves, this is your room!
Since we were tight on schedule, we quickly got out of our spy hats and became explorers. We are now ready to enter the next room... “Mayan Tomb”.
