Red Lock Escape Room's "Bank Heist" felt like a well rounded package. When you book, you'll get a link to the zoom meeting and a separate link that will allow you to open the inventory list during the game. There was also a 360 view of the room that you can open along with clickable areas to zoom in. These items really helped us during the game to split into teams and work on different puzzles at the same time. We were also able to see the items that are quite hard to read on the camera very clearly in the inventory list.
Our avatar was great at controlling how much suggestions he was giving us. The speed was also nicely controlled so that it felt like we're actually in a heist. I liked how we were able to time check with him through his wrist watch. He even dressed up as a robber! We were not able to see this however until the end when he turned over the camera and said hi to us...It would've been great if he would face the camera at us and do a intro like "team, I'm going in...please help me along the way..." so at least his costume would've been appreciated.
There were several physical puzzles that were our favorites. We haven't seen many of those used in a remote room yet. We were able to get out with 6 people with about 12 minutes left. For this room, we actually didn't feel like that was too many people. The 360 view and inventory list definitely helped with that as most of the time we're onto different things. Overall we really enjoyed this game. Who doesn't love escaping with 10 million dollars? Cha-Ching!
