Our next stop is at Encrypted Escape Room in West Reading, Pennsylvania. There is so much to do in this area from restaurants to shopping. There was metered parking all around and a couple of parking lots in the area as well. The facility is located in the basement so as of right now they are not handicap accessible. They currently have three rooms available - "Biker's Revenge", "Viking Raid", and their newest room "The Last Vampire". Fortunately for us we get to try all three of them and meet with Mechelle, the general manager to learn more about the company. The owner of Encrypted is also one of the co-owners of Captured LV Escape Room in Bethlehem, PA. The lobby area was quite spacious a lot of decorations including a huge graffiti mural which was designed by one of their local artists. We are going to be trying the rooms in order from oldest to newest with "Biker's Revenge" first.
As soon as you're ready to start your game, they peel back the curtains for you to walk down this long hallway. When you enter the "Biker's Revenge" room, you are instantly immersed into a biker bar w/ tons of decor. The room design was incredible and the puzzle challenges correlated with the objective of the storyline very well. There was a good mixture of high tech incorporated into the room as well as traditional locks. For the most part, the game was linear from start to finish. Although Mechelle was our game master and provided some really good hints, we failed. Sadly, we had the last item in our hands and could not find where to place it in time in order to complete our mission.
