          Theme/Atmosphere: Start of the game was a little unsettling, but it added to the atmosphere and was a nice little touch (you’ll know what I mean if you try it out). The décor was very true to a crime scene and was nicely done. Music was a bit eerie, so if you don’t want to be scared, this is not the room for you.

          Puzzles: I felt everything was quite well thought out. None of the challenges were obvious, but nothing was too complicated as long as you were aware of your surroundings. My only disappointment was that after having been to Omescape and Trapped, I was expecting automated doors and walls, but there wasn’t much of that here. Having said that, the challenges were still a lot of fun.

          Level of Difficulty: I would classify this as medium difficulty. It would be tough as a beginner to solve everything within an hour, but everything is very much solvable.

          Overall Experience: We finished the escape with an adrenaline rush wanting more, so overall it was a great experience. There was a lot to solve, so I would recommend having at least 4 people so that you have enough people moving around. The challenges were a lot of fun, and they required varied skillsets that we luckily had on the team. Hence we were able to solve everything and beat their record time.
