Escapology (Las Vegas)- "Narco"
Updated: Nov 11, 2020
📖 THE STORY
Your old school friend Lewis Salinger has been doing pretty well for himself and suddenly invited you to fly down to meet him at his mansion in a private jet in the Caribbean. There’s no such thing as a free lunch. Once you arrive, you realize he’s a powerful drug lord and the only reason he wanted you to come is to be his drug mule and help him deliver his next shipment to the US. Will you join his operations or gather evidence and turn him into the police? The clock is ticking…
🎯 HIT THE BULLSEYE
There weren’t too many red herrings in the room. Everything had a purpose.
Various types of puzzles were present.
🧩 MISSED THE MARK
This is one of the rooms we felt that Escapology felt short on regarding the set design. We thought we would be inside of a billionaire’s mansion in the Caribbean. We didn’t really feel the “wealth” nor “island” vibe.
One of the puzzles had numbers we needed to see for a code, but it was really faded. Some props definitely felt like they needed an update.
In the latter part of the game, there was a prop that didn't really look like it had any relevance to the room. We weren't sure why it was there.
Some puzzles were a far stretch in terms of the thought process. We had to use a clue to link them together but still felt like it didn’t have much to do with the story line.
We had games with choice endings before, but we didn’t feel a “wow” moment with this one.
🏹 TAKE A SHOT?
This was a challenging room even for enthusiasts. We suggest you gather a large team to divide and conquer this room. This room wasn’t our favorite in terms of the set design or puzzles. We have definitely had much better reviews on other Escapology rooms before. The good news is that Escapology Las Vegas has a total of 13 games between their two locations. We are sure you’ll be able to find your favorite. One thing that is consistent with Escapology is their excellent customer service. We hope to complete our collection of their room’s bracelets one day!
