Loved the theming and set design, the jump scares were okay. Most of the puzzles were really cool and novel but a few were more tedious. Room is great overall, but not my favorite horror escape room. Biggest complaint would be the lack of enthusiasm and rushed feeling from the game-masters.
If you took away all the impressive set design at 13th gate and focused solely on puzzle flow, I think this room would be my favorite - and it still has a pretty damn good set design.
I loved how this room played out, the set was phenomenal, and the lighting and sound design really worked for me. Absolutely worth doing if you're at 13th Gate.
100% an AMAZING experience! Slightly experienced players will do well. This game had my heart pounding the whole time and was perfectly thought out from beginning to end. 10/10 an outstanding escape! This may top my list at this point.
Great theming for this room. Very large setting and it was very well done with some great sound effects and vfx. This definitely stepped up the immersion. Fun intro and definitely got your blood pumping. Some puzzles were very fun and well themed. We had to break out and rescue a girl out of the asylum. It is supposed to be a horror room and it did not have the overall scary vibe we were expecting based on the hype.
There were a few clues that required a bit more lighting and involved colors and that stopped us up for a few minutes.
Some issues with communication with GM. Could be because they switched halfway through the room. Not sure if that is something that is usually done. Timer started before our audio finished so we lost a few minutes there. We did finish all the puzzles however there was a lot going on with this room that left a sour taste for on the experience. Still a nice room!!
This was easily the best of all of the rooms at 13th Gate Escape and it’s because they finally have amazing sets mixed with great puzzles. This is a scary room! The fear is real and there aren’t even live actors but you always wonder “what if?” The implementation of how to receive clues is by far the best for this room and like all of their rooms it is big! If you want to get scared, but walk out saying wow that was cool! This is a great room. Most of the rooms are very disappointing except for their top-tier unbeatable jaw dropping set designs. Escape rooms are more than just sets though.
