The Nuclear Event Escape Room ReviewPrice: $28 per Person
BOOK THIS ROOM
The Nuclear Event escape game is one of the best starter rooms that the Escape Crusaders have entered. The room starts with the feeling that you are standing in a bunker with a nuclear console. The entire room is a fantastic experience, even better for those who love history. One of the most memorable aspects of this game and location is the real-feel contributions from actual Russian/Cold War relics. Players will find the room fun with some challenge and run into some creative handcrafted puzzles.
Story: The year is 1990, the Soviet Union is beginning to collapse, and a rogue Soviet General has forcefully gained control of a nuclear missile. His intentions are not yet clear, but you and your team have been called into action to quickly ready a Top-Secret missile launch facility. The citizens of the United States are relying on you and your team for a nuclear response.
Immersion: The Nuclear Event does a fantastic job with immersion to the point of having actual relics from the Cold War. How many museums allow you to actually interact with the artifacts? Get ready to turn the Key to save the world!
Game Style: Save The World
Game Flow: The game flow was seamless. You will unexpectedly come upon the completion of the room and be disappointed that the experience is over!
Puzzles: Many of the puzzles are unique and some of them are solved with ease.
Game Master: The game master is good and enjoyable but the clues are a little straight forward. The only knock on this room is, at this time, the game master cannot hear what is going on in the room which leads to rehearsed clues.
Group Size Suggestion: 3-6
Final Thoughts: Be observant and make sure you take in the whole experience.
The Interrogation Room Escape Room ReviewPrice: $28 per Person
BOOK THIS ROOM
The Interrogation Room escape game is a well-made room. The participants enter the office of a KGB official and get to look through the Russian artifacts to find clues. The room is cohesive with challenging moments. It is a hard room to gauge as none of the puzzles pop but are very well put together. It does have a unique element in terms of decoding messages. This room is for players that have some experience under their belt.
Story: One of our CIA agents was captured by the KGB while performing a covert operation in Leningrad. He was last seen being escorted into a known KGB detention facility outside the city. Intelligence from our inside source states that our agent is missing from the interrogation room. You and your team will be inserted by our source on the inside to investigate and confirm if it is possible to escape the iron grip of the KGB.
Immersion: The Interrogation Room fits the theme. The interior is simple but holds many interesting pieces of Russian history.
Game Style: Escape the KGB
Game Flow: The game flow was a bit clunky but not poorly executed.
Puzzles: The puzzles are all handcrafted and one puzzle goes “old school” instead of high tech which was refreshing.
Game Master: The Game Master is good and enjoyable but the clues are a little straight forward. The only knock on this room is, at this time, the game master cannot hear what is going on in the room which leads to rehearsed clues.
Group Size Suggestion: 4-6
Final Thoughts: Make sure you get the Game Master to give you the interesting history on some of the props for the room! Also, find the chalk board!
