          • - Did not feel like an elevator

          What initially attracted me to this game was the theme – it wasn’t a prison, a haunted house, or a pyramid, which is refreshing. There’s also something inherently scary about elevators, perhaps because I’ve been trapped in one before? When I got into the room, my first thought was that while there were lots of elevator-related props, it did not feel like an elevator. Perhaps if panels were put up on the drywall to simulate the inside of an elevator, that would help? The props were great though and everything worked as it should. We did experience a very minor technical issue with the intro audio track, but it was quickly resolved by the staff and our time was reset, so no issue here.

          I have little to complain about when it comes to the puzzle design. They related well to the elevator theme and no logical leaps were required. There were enough puzzles to keep the four of us engaged at all times, whether it be working together to solve a more complicated puzzle, or splitting up to tackle separate puzzles. We also enjoyed the various bits of technology they threw in here and there, and appreciated the variety of puzzles.

          All in all, it was a great experience! I think this room would be good for beginners as it’s pretty straightforward, or intermediate players looking for something refreshing to try!
