This is the only escape room in the Springfield, MA area. Being that its steps away from the brand new MGM hotel & casino, it's a great way to "escape" from the casino for some real fun. The lobby feels more like a bar setting and the owner did express his intention to acquire a liquor license so can add alcohol to his food and beverage menu that he currently offers. The owner is amazing with his carpentry and electrical engineering skills. He builds all the rooms by himself. There's definitely a few innovative ideas and props that he installed in there that we've never seen before. There was a few hiccups while we were playing with the tech puzzles but he was able to correct it immediately (we could've given a higher rating if these issues didn't occur). We felt that one of the puzzles was quite physically challenging with two people, but he said he's going to fix that so it can be a bit easier for the future players. There's no red herrings in the gameplay and the theme of the room felt quite immersive. We decided to try his other room - "The Vampire Hunter" back-to-back.
ETR Overall rating: 7.5/10
