📖 THE STORY
No one knows what goes on inside Dr. Eckstein's Lab located in the mysterious brick building at the edge of town. Strange noises can be heard all throughout the night with massive power surges running through the building. You decide to respond to an ad in the local paper regarding clinical trials being held at the facility. Let's see what you can find out...
🎯 HIT THE BULLSEYE
This room was quite challenging and a lot of "tricks" up its sleeve. We started off inside of a cage as one of the patients that has enrolled for the clinical trials. The GM was great at playing his character. It felt like we're in the hands of a complete lunatic.
The set design felt like a mad scientist's laboratory. The props looked and felt so real. There was a "special" discovery that definitely had us by surprise. It's not something you'll see in a typical escape room yet the creators were able to make it as a part of a puzzle.
Each obstacle and puzzle challenge entangled with each other allowing for players to divide and conquer yet also communicate with each other at the same time.
There was so many unexpected wow moments in this room. From beginning to end, we felt the need to uncover the truth no matter how "shocking" (literally) the discovery.
Our favorite moment was definitely towards the end of the game. The set design along with the nerve-wracking count down gave the game a phenomenal ending.
🧩 MISSED THE MARK
At one point, we were required to communicate with each other through a speaker but had difficulty hearing the conversation clearly.
A sensor needed to be re-positioned for a prop towards the end as it wasn't triggering properly.
🏹 TAKE A SHOT?
If you love that supernatural Dr. Frankenstein type of vibe, this is the room for you! This room is not linear at all and allows you to spread out yet still requires you to come together as a team. Communication is very important in this room and it will challenge your all of your senses. The authenticity of the set design and decor really transports you to that fantasy world.
