1 ⭐: "I hate to give a one star rating, but...
My husband and I have been to several other escape rooms and this was by far our worst experience.
The biggest issue was the game master. Although he was really nice, it was clear that when he left the room, he was not listening or watching us. We asked for hints over and over again, and he would take several minutes to answer and sometimes, he didn’t answer at all. We tried all kinds of things, including covering the camera and yelling that we needed a hint but clearly he wasn’t watching. (Also... all they had for communication was a baby monitor... It was difficult to understand anything he said when he did respond)
The room itself was, well, boring and minimal. The props were plain, there was only one mechanical gizmo and two keypads. No lockboxes, secret buttons, hands-on interactive stuff. The one secret door they did have didn’t work well. I don’t know how to describe it without giving hints to the room, but I’ll just say that every single thing you actually needed to get thru the rooms was on paper (not using objects or interacting with the space, like every other escape room we’ve been to).
On top of all that, there was an INCREDIBLE amount of useless information to distract you from actually getting through the rooms. All escape rooms have some “false hints” to add interest, but this room was mostly false hints. There was little to no indication of which information you needed in the mountain of words, colors, patterns, and number combinations that were scattered throughout the rooms. Much of the time, there were 3-5+ ways to use the information you were given. (Also there was a number that we HAD to have in order to finish, and it was rubbed off and illegible.) Without having a game master to guide or give hints when we were completely lost, most of our time was spent arranging and rearranging the useless information.
We have been to other escape rooms that we didn’t escape from, but they were still super fun! This one was just stressful and irritating to all of us 😕 Maybe escape chamber has other rooms that are better??🤷🏻♀️"

5 ⭐: "Great experience and a very helpful and on the ball staff. We completed our escape room with 14 seconds left and it was touch and go down to the wire. We will definitely be back to try the other rooms."
5 ⭐: "We had the best time - two of us solved casino with lots of time to spare, but that doesn’t mean it was easy / boring!! Luke was great. We’ve done a few escape rooms, and though this was the only one we’ve solved, I think it’s a tribute to how well it was done, not to the difficulty of the room."

My friends and I will definitely be coming back soon and with more people for the 3v3 mission X. By far my favorite part, even when me and my friend ran into eachother it was great.
