          Pros

          • - Spacious enough to support all 16 members

          Cons

          • - Players only get to be involved in a small portion of the whole game

          Theme/Atmosphere: The actors and actresses were nice and stayed in character, but unlike the first Tower experience, I was not able to get into the game with them; nor did I feel like they heightened my experience.

          Puzzles: They separate you into three different rooms to solve individual puzzles before you come together to solve more puzzles. I was surprised that each room had enough puzzles/tasks that it felt like a complete escape room (from other companies) already, and after that, you still have to solve more puzzles as a collective team to get out.

          Everything felt more low-tech than the Tower. It felt like things were manually triggered if the game masters saw that you completed the puzzle correctly; I feel that it is too subjective.

          Level of Difficulty: The puzzles are difficult and for the most part, you need to divide and conquer and the more man power the better for certain puzzles. There are many puzzles to solve, and beginners will have a hard time completing everything within the hour.

          Overall Experience: Disappointed that we don’t get to play as a whole “team” and each person really only gets to participate in 1/3 of the game. If I hadn’t been curious and actually remembered that I didn’t get to see one of the rooms, I would not have even seen that room at all (let alone get to do the puzzles in that room). I left the Tower with extreme excitement (recommending it to anyone who asked), but I was disappointed at the overall flow and organization of this game.

          I didn’t get to touch all the puzzles in the Tower either, but at least I was in the same room, and had a sense of what was happening (even if I wasn’t the one who solved it). But in this game, I didn’t even get to see the room!
