This escape room location is located on the second floor and there's no elevators. The lobby area is quite large and comfortable. The decor definitely adds to the ambience and there's a few puzzles for you to play with while waiting. The room design has a bit of a eerie feeling to it as if you are in a black widow's apartment, but I would definitely not label it as scary. We felt that the decor played well with the storyline, but the design of the room didn't feel as immersive. We were glad all the props were in great condition and functioned well. The puzzles were a good mix of high-tech and basic locks which played nicely. We actually finished up the puzzle rather quickly but got stuck at the end because of a brand new tech we have never encountered before. Also, we didn't understand one of the meaning behind the hint we got so we almost didn't make it out in time but figured it out with a minute left. There were some minor red herrings, but nothing major. Overall, we enjoyed our experience so much that we booked a second room back-to-back right there on the spot.

ETR Overall rating: 8/10
