 Sparkls Revenge Escape Room
BOOK THIS ROOM

Sparkle’s Revenge Escape Room is a unique take on a mischievous elf messing up Christmas for everyone. Let’s get ready for Christmas, it is the middle of June and I can already hear the shopping mall music playing.  The room is well designed with great hidden attributes. The décor is simple but does not take away from the experience!

Story: Sparkle the Elf has had it! She had her heart set on being the new Head Carpenter Elf at Santa’s workshop after Jingles the Elf retired. However, it didn’t happen that way, and now she’s going to show Santa and all the other elves just how powerful she really is. Tools and partially built toys have suddenly gone missing in the workshop and nobody seems to know why. It’s becoming a huge problem and Santa is worried that he won’t have enough toys for his Christmas Eve trip around the world.

Meanwhile, you and your family have set off on a holiday excursion, but the weather has gotten progressively worse. Suddenly, you find yourself stuck in a snow drift in the middle of nowhere. In the distance you see a glimmer of light and decide to go for help. As you near the light, you realize it’s a small cabin, festively lit with tiny lights and a wreath on the door.

A sign proclaims “North Pole: and you suddenly realize you’re not in Kansas anymore! The elves bring you in to their cozy workshop and enlist your help with their problem. Can you help them figure out what is going on in the workshop and help them finish the toys for Christmas? It is 11pm and you have just one hour to get Santa ready to fly around the world.

Immersion:  You always hear about 4 plain walls and a box at many escape rooms. Well, you will never run into that issue at Daytona Escape Room Experience. This room even smells like Christmas! This isn’t the most intricate rooms of the Daytona Escape Room Experience but the room is well done.

Game Style: Mystery/Holiday

Game Flow: The flow of the room was by far one of the best for Daytona Escape Room Experience and that may have made the room feel easier than it actually turned out to be. This is a pretty linear game and each puzzle seamlessly leads to the next.

Puzzles: The puzzles in this room are mainly mechanical with the addition of magnet and RFID locks to add more of a wow factor.

Game Master: The Game Master has a very small role in this room as they provide clues through a monitor on the wall.

Group Size Suggestion:  2-5

Final Thought: Be extremely observant in this room. It is easy if you are good at paying attention to the subtle hints throughout. This is the best Holiday themed room we have done.

The Exhibit Escape Room Review

The Exhibit Escape Room Daytona Escape Room Experience
BOOK THIS ROOM

The Exhibit Escape Room is considered the easiest  by Daytona Escape Room Experience. That doesn’t mean it isn’t fun honestly the easier the room the more enjoyable. This room tends to be fun for people as it contains no crazy math and really makes those that are great at observation shine. It is considered a gen 2 and ranks about mid tier. This isn’t my favorite room at the location but I would definitely tell people to play it you won’t be disappointed that you spent the money. If you have the chance go ahead and do the hot seat, it is worth the Instagram video.

Story: Famous author Daniel McKenna and his son, Stewart, traveled the world for many years. Daniel gathered information for his many award winning novels, while Stewart collected art and eclectic pieces. Over the years, Stewart’s collection grew and became one of the country’s largest, privately owned collections ever amassed by one person.

Wanting to share his collection with the world, Stewart opened the “McKenna Museum of Eclectic Art”. After his death, the McKenna family closed the museum. However, in his will, Stewart demanded the public would always be able to see his treasures, so the family split up the collection and sent it off as traveling pop-up displays around the country.

One collection has arrived in Daytona Beach and caught the attention of Stanley Wright – retired art hustler. It has been rumored that this particular collection includes a special exhibit – one that would be invaluable to any thief and worth the risk of coming out of retirement for another heist. Stanley has enlisted the help of a few of his friends and put a plan in place. He can’t be seen around the exhibit, so he has managed to hide many helpful tools and hints to help your accomplish the deed. You will only have one hour between the security guard’s rounds, so time is of the essence. 

Immersion:  You always hear about 4 white walls and a box at many escape rooms. Well you will never run into that issue at Daytona Escape Room Experience, the walls are covered with artifacts and inside jokes. Being the third room released by the company it shows extreme progression in the skills used to build rooms. Including mechanical and non-mechanical locks.

Game Style: Find the Item

Game Flow: The flow of the room was really well put together and I would recommend this for those looking to bring people to a first escape room experience. The room is linear until about the midway section then it breaks into two separate lines that re-converge. 

Puzzles: The puzzles in this room are mainly mechanical with the addition of magnet and rfid locks to add more of a wow factor. Again no crazy equations you will have realizations and observations.

Game Master: The Game Master has a very small role in this room as they provide clues through a monitor on the wall.

Group Size Suggestion:  2-5

Final Thought: Be extremely observant in this room. It is easy if you are good at paying attention. Send us a message let us know what you think of the room. Your opinions can change a review.
