Daytona Escape Game Escape Room Daytona Beach FL
Daytona Escape Game is one of the best/worst experiences you will have. Promoting a rather low entry price of only, $18, you get what you pay for. At this location, you will get locked in rooms with very little technology but amusing puzzles. The Game Masters are interested in the games but are sometimes a bit overzealous.
Daytona Escape Game currently has two escape games, The Warlord and Jailbreak. These rooms contain a wide variety of unconventional puzzles ranging from shooting a nerf gun to touching “poo”. The games are not the most intuitive or logic based but they are interesting to play. There is much room for improvement for instance, the clue delivery system is the Game Masters yelling through the walls. You never really know what your time is and sometimes you even feel like you are going to lose an eye. Yes, the rooms are bad. Yes, there are many “what the…?” moments, but, darn it, if they don’t give you an interesting experience.
Warlord Escape Room ReviewPrice: $18 per Person
BOOK THIS ROOM
Daytona Escape Game’s Warlord Escape Room is an interesting game that isn’t well put together. You must walk through the whole game to get to the first place you are locked in. You start in a plywood room left with military helmets and Nerf guns. As you move through the game, more and more odd details become apparent, for instance tin foil on the walls, and rooms separated by flimsy fences. The story given to you is on a piece of paper that you are advised to keep with you at all times. Your objective is to smuggle weapons from the Warlord and find money for your bribe to safety!
Story: Playing against the clock your military group has 45 minutes to smuggle weapons behind enemy lines by collecting clues, solving puzzles and cracking codes…
Immersion: It definitely feels like you are in in the bowels of a Warlord’s camp but you will not be impressed by the immersion of the room.
Game Style: Adventure
Game Flow: The room has no real flow or path of escape. You can see the way out, so that is the only direction you know to move towards.
Puzzles: The puzzles really don’t require much thought. Also, make sure you think outside of the box of ammunition!
Game Master: The Game Masters don’t really know what is going on in the room from what we could tell and must deliver clues through the door. They are nice guys and seem to enjoy what they do so they will make it an enjoyable experience for what it is.
Group Size Suggestion: 2-4
Final Thought: Make sure your aim is true if you run out of nerf bullets you may never escape.
Jailbreak Escape Room ReviewPrice: $18 per Person
BOOK THIS ROOM
Daytona Escape Game’s Jailbreak is like being in a Maybury jail cell. The room is not the best in terms of aesthetics and the rout of escape is mapped out on the wall. You will actually get all the answers you need from the map on the wall.
You start off chained up to a bench and must work together to get the game started. What answers you don't get from the map on the wall you will get from the Game Master as he really loves to see detainees escape the jail and he may give some unsolicited clues. It is a goofy game that does require some previous knowledge to aid in your escape.
Story: Experience the thrill of escaping a maximum-security prison full of exciting puzzles and dead ends. Only your problem-solving skills, creativity, resourcefulness and your friends can help your escape. The choice is yours: Make the move or stay locked forever.
Immersion: It could be considered better than some but it isn’t the best thing about this room. According to the story you are locked up in a maximum-security prison… The immersion does not reflect the story at all.
Game Style: Escape
Game Flow: The game flow is linear and mapped out on the wall, literally. Escape is highly likely.
Puzzles: The puzzles require some previous knowledge and a bit crawling on the floor. Hey, you’re in prison, might as well get your hands dirty on your way to freedom.
Game Master: The Game Master was super fun but he was way too willing to give advice through the walls.
Group Size Suggestion: 2-4
Final Thought: Did you pick up the poo?
