📖 THE STORY

Back in 1970, the Montauk Air Force Station was shut down and the area has been transformed into "Camp Hero State Park". However, there's been strange activity in the area and reports of people disappearing in the forests. Is there something still lingering around the abandoned bunker?

🎯 HIT THE BULLSEYE

  • Sci-fi themes is one of my favorite genres because it opens the door for infinite possibilities. The storyline for "Montauk Project" was truly exceptional. It was creative yet original. It has the cinematic quality you would expect from a J.J. Abrams film.

  • "Montauk Project" spared no expense when it comes to making the set design top notch. From the stones on the floor to the rusty looking shed, everything looked eerie yet inviting for the brave and curious ESCAPETHEROOMers team. We walked down the cobblestone path until we were greeted by an actual house. But it wasn't just what you were able to see, it was also what you were able to hear. The entire experience literally blurred reality for us. There was ambient sounds, changes in temperature, and special effects that truly won our hearts over for every second of this experience.

  • The puzzle were not the typical ones you would see in escape rooms as many actually involved using common sense. What would you do with a piece of wood? Where should it go? Our minds were constantly pushed to act like we're characters in the actual story. The mixture of logic, memory, and physical puzzles went perfectly with the storytelling.

  • Our favorite moments were in the latter part of the game. We don't want to give any spoilers but let's just say you'll get your cinematic finish and the production value was Disney quality.

🧩 MISSED THE MARK

  • This was a solid game. One small suggestion we would make is to make the audio and wording for one of the puzzles a bit more clear as we had to repeat it several times in order to understand what it was trying to give as the clue.

🏹 TAKE A SHOT?

You should definitely go play this room if you're ever in NY. And if you enjoy films like "10 Cloverfield Lane" or "Stranger Things", you would love it even more. From the moment we entered "Montauk Project", nothing else in the outside world mattered. We were in Camp Hero State Park. From figuring out how to get into the shed to the house to things we can't tell you about, there were many "wow" moments waiting to be discovered. Are you ready to find the hidden secrets within this abandoned facility?


ℹ️ ADDITIONAL INFO
