Read our review of the “Unknown" and the "Bank Heist" 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 were led by our gamemaster to the front of a temple looking structure and our storyline was played for us on the TV. As we entered the Mayan Tomb, we immediately felt immersed! The set design, lighting, and music all felt like we’ve entered an Indiana Jones movie. As we made our way deeper into the tomb, new “wow” moment of discoveries were made. This room doesn’t have any locks so if you are a tech room lover, you will love it in here. We did encounter one puzzle that the gamemaster had informed us to be careful with in terms of maneuvering it. I feel like that particular puzzle could break easily as it’s quite easy to be “hard” on it when time is of the essence. It would be great if they can improve the puzzle somehow so that the focus can be on solving it versus caring for its condition. Other than that, we were once again “satisfied” by the quality and gameplay at The Great Escape Challenge! We escaped with just the two of us with ample time to spare. This room was quite spacious, so having a group in there would be a lot of fun as well although some puzzles are easier with less people than more and the design was quite linear.
We can’t wait for their new rooms - "Mission to Mars" and "Runaway Train" to come out as both looked amazing when the owner showed us a sneak peak at the set design. The escape room owners devote months into a project like this for players to enjoy only 60 minutes of it. We really appreciate the amount of work and dedication they put in to creating these rooms and you can easily see their passion through their work. We hope more players would acknowledge the hard work and put some care into the props when playing in the rooms as they can get quite expensive to replace. Have you ever encountered “aggressive” players before?
