This escape room is a storefront, so it's quite easy to find. When you walk in, there's a small waiting area with a few puzzle pieces on the table. The game master will then show up to debrief you before entering your game. Once you enter the room, you will feel like you are immersed into a Western movie set and you are a cowboy trying not to get caught stealing loot from the saloon. Due to the dim lighting, we did miss some really obvious clues in the beginning. Once we got passed that, the puzzles were quite clear and linear to solve. We came across a puzzle which we felt most people could spot an easy way out and just guess where to place a certain clue piece. We informed the game master, so hopefully they'll resolve the issue. The props were well maintained and authentic. We didn't encounter any red herrings which we appreciated. We escaped with 15 minutes to spare with four people. We'll be back to challenge their hardest game "Perfect Crime" next time.

ETR Overall rating: 8/10
