When we initially decided to reached out to Fox-N-Otter Adventure, it was because something special caught our eyes. "There's a real car in this game!" I shouted. In my mind, I knew this was going to be a cool room and as always, I was right!


We were given a moment to watch the intro video. Once that's done, our wonderful avatar Jon informed us our goal was to get Geno's gold from his garage and get out ASAP. We were also provided with a portal for inventory. The portal had a cool option of allowing us to try codes on different locks ourselves. This saved us time on guessing which code went with which lock. Since the room was not entirely linear, the portal allowed us to multitask. We definitely had to split up as there was a lot to do in this game.


The escape room was situated in a mall and to be able to build a set design into a garage with a real Mini Cooper (fully functional) inside was truly amazing. The props used were all closely connected with the theme and the puzzles had a great flow. Jon was really good at giving secret "camera lens hints" that were subtle but we got his drift right away. He also moved very quickly and was able to do everything we told him to (Well...maybe not everything. Although you can definitely tell him to show you his yoga move, he's quite flexible).


Although this was a remote escape room experience, we felt like we're actually playing on site. The puzzles worked well with the remote set up. None of them made us feel like we were just watch the avatar play the game. We always had to contribute to an idea in which he would act on it right away. We also enjoyed how he was able to proceed with certain actions like "searching", "opening boxes", "checking if we missed anything else in the room" without us telling him word for word. He acted like a real escape room player and that was another reason why this experience felt real. With Jon breaking every speed limit, we were able to escape with around 14 minutes left on the clock. And if you thought you escaped at the end, there's definitely a surprise at the end waiting for you! You totally "jump started" our escape room engines that's been hibernating in quarantine for a long time. Zoom! Zoom! Great job!
