🎯 HIT THE BULLSEYE

  • The name already intrigued us before we even step foot into the game itself. Honestly this is our first game involving puppets. We were very excited.

  • Think Sesame Street set design. We were amazed by the build out.

  • I love the fact that the character in the game actually "speaks" to you. It acts as the hint giver and also pushes you along in case you get stuck on something for too long.

  • The tech in this room was top of the line. There were some props we never seen before and have no idea how the made it work but it definitely made an impression in our memories.

  • The special effect (especially towards the end) was movie quality. One minute we were "wow"ing something we just saw happen in one corner of the room and right away we had to turn to look up at another amazing "act".

🧩 MISSED THE MARK

  • I am not sure if this would be missed the market for us per se but the puzzles for escape room enthusiasts might feel like completing a video game. It might not be satisfying for some puzzle seekers as it's more tasky and repetitive in some parts.

🏹 TAKE A SHOT?

The Bureau Escape Rooms "wowed" us before we even enter the lobby. It's secret yet impressive welcome message to the agents (us) was truly unique. It felt like a production. You would not be able to know what's in store for you from the outside. This game was also an experience. I wouldn't really call it a true escape room because you wouldn't be experiencing the typical puzzles so to some enthusiast they might have mix feelings with this room. We really enjoyed it because of the theatrical aspect of the game. The props, sound and lighting really helped complete this SHOW. The storyline also really helped make it whimsical that for a period of time we forgot we had a time limit to solve puzzles. You'll just need to get there to experience it yourself in order to know what we're talking about. One thing we can guarantee and that is you'll forever remember this unique experience.


ℹ️ ADDITIONAL INFO

There is a free parking lot in front of the facility. Keep in mind, your GPS might lead you to the front, but the parking lot is in the back. If you got to a building that looks abandoned, perhaps "travel agency" related business then you're at the right place. Huge lobby area with seating, great for large events. Both alcoholic & non-alcoholic beverages available for purchase.
