When we arrived at Escape The Puzzle we thought it was a private home and it was! Escape The Puzzle owns the entire house. The house has 3 floors with a fully functional basement for parties. There's even a garage for storage and a good amount of parking in the back. The main builder and puzzle creator behind all the rooms is the wife this time (go female power!) although without our male owner's "special care" on the place, the bathrooms would not have looked spanking clean. The first room we tackled was the "Swamp" and it normally can hold up to 10 people. We were definitely in it for a challenge with two people as this room is not linear at all. You can definitely have many people working on different things at once. Besides the puzzle aspect, the builder was also very into hiding things well . With all that said, we needed about 5 minutes more to solve that last puzzle to get out of the room. There were a few puzzles in there that we thought were cleverly built without the use of electronic device but still very fun to figure out. There were a few things in the puzzle that we thought if we didn't get a hint we wouldn't have known to go there for that so if there were some story line that can point to it other than the hint system we feel that it would create a better flow. Overall, we were very impressed by the immersive room design and how much little details the owners put into the room. They are currently building a new room and we look forward to going back there to try the others in the near future!
ETR Overall rating: 9/10
