Today we are visiting Mission Escape Games in Queens, New York City. This facility is located in the popular area of Flushing, Queens. The area is surrounded by restaurants, Karoake bars, shopping, etc. We've played "Escape The Hydeout" at the Mission Escape Games in Manhattan before, so we wanted to try a different location this time We were fortunate enough to meet with the owner & developer to learn more about the company and it's operations. They currently have 4 rooms available to the public, 1 in beta testing, and another that's being built. The owner is very hands on with his designs and developments. Please advise this location is not handicap accessible as there's multiple floors inside the facility. The brand new renovated lounge area is great for hosting large parties. There's street parking all around the block and meter parking right in front. Today, we are trying 2 of their rooms - "The Secret of the Alchemist" (beta test mode) and "The Dungeon of Elements". The first room - "The Secret of the Alchemist" is about 99% complete. They're still finalizing some of the puzzles which is why it's not available on their website yet. This room is located in the basement which I feel adds to the experience because as soon as you walk into the room, you are inside of an Alchemist's office. The room design was very unique and had a lot of character. The puzzle challenges were creative and less traditional which correlated with the story line very well. Prior to our game, we were told as a disclaimer that some puzzles needed to be fine-tuned. Overall, we enjoyed our experience and made it out just in time with four people total.
ETR Overall rating: 8.5/10
