The next day we booked not one but two Escape Rooms! Apartment 205 and The Will.
Apartment 205 was an action sort of escape room with your typical senile terrorist that’s left clues all over the place ostentatiously for himself. I was a fun concept but it didn’t appeal to us. Having the actor in the room with us was more obtrusive. Also, one of the first things we did was run down the hall to get to the room, and because there were a bunch of people in the hallway I hit my hand on some guy’s motorcycle helmet. He didn’t drop it so I think it was okay, but I know they’re pretty expensive. I know that it was my choice to run, but if you’re going to spring something like that on someone probably isn’t a good idea to do it in a crowded hallway. Still I think that for some people it will give more guidance and reassurance. It just didn’t work well for us.
At one point my boyfriend knew how to solve a puzzle but because the guy was standing over him awkwardly he felt so weirded out by the situation he didn’t actually do the puzzle. At that point the actor just sort of told him what to do. It would have been more fun and less awkward without that. That was kind of a low point for both of us, but the next room was much more to our taste.
There was a Chipotle across the street from this location so we ended up there for lunch. It was very convenient. There wasn’t really anywhere to hang out around the Escape Room so we just waited in the car after finishing lunch.
The Will is a techy room. Things happen when you solve puzzles, and it really feels really cool. It’s hard to talk about without spoiling things but I enjoyed the room a lot. We finished it easily with two people with plenty of time to spare. I think that we did use one or two hints but they were things that I think we would have gotten eventually. Just stuff we didn’t find or notice. I think that it would be a good one for a new group or a couple.
Okay! That just about finished our trip. Last but not least, we went to the Lunar Lab Escape Room by Maze. I’m planning to talk about that one tomorrow, so stay tuned!
