The Caretaker Escape Room ReviewPrice: $39 per Person
BOOK THIS ROOM
The Caretaker Escape Room is an adrenaline inducing, fast paced Escape Game. The experience is filled with jump scares and creative puzzles. It is a room that requires patience and focus as much as it requires intelligence to complete. This game isn’t for everyone as one of the major themes of the room is frustration by using loud noises to interrupt conversations and prevent completion of puzzles. Not every puzzle requires the use of the mind but the skill of a steady hand. Players usage of clues in this room is very important as the game does have puzzles that will eat time to prevent a speedy escape. As the pace quickens, and the difficulty increases, more distractions are thrown at you and your team!
Story: Deep within the dark recesses of the forests in Oregon lies an evil like no other. A disbarred geneticist named Dr. Vermillion has unleashed a terror that has left a trail of death and destruction in its wake. A once decorated scientist, Vermillion has now been disgraced for conducting immoral experimentation on humans and animals. Seeking revenge for his disbarment, Vermillion has unleashed his brood of giant wolf-like creates onto the town of Fair Oaks. Military and law enforcement efforts have failed as the death toll continues to rise.
Deep within these woods lives a hermit the locals have come to know as The Caretaker. He has no hope to escape the terror that lurks in the woods around him without your help! Move quickly and quietly as Caretaker’s life depends on it.
Immersion: One of the best parts of the Caretake is the outside atmosphere of the game. As you begin the game, you just get the creeping feeling that things are going to reach out and grab you!
Game Style: Horror/Adventure
Game Flow: The game is fast paced. Before you make your way into the cabin, the tasks move quickly. As soon as you enter the cabin, you are smacked in the face with how much work needs to be done to move any further. The flow continues smoothly but comes to a dead halt when you reach a specific wooden puzzle. Once we moved passed that puzzle, the game flow resumed! The noises and scare tactics of the room create an anxiety that steadily increases as you progress through the room.
Puzzles: Many of the puzzles are fun and help add to the immersion. A couple puzzles can be a bit tedious and had a clue not been used on a specific wooden puzzle it could be game stopping. The Escape Crusaders made a unanimous vote to ask for a clue while solving the wooden puzzle, and we suggest you do the same!
Game Master: The Game Master is very involved in your experience. Not only do they provide clues when needed, they help guide you through the story.
Group Size Suggestion: 4-8
Final Thought: Clue usage will make or break this game for most groups.
If you are looking for a fun take on a desert archeologist adventure, kind of like Indiana Jones, you have come to the right spot!
