The Gate Escape is one of the many must play games in Massachusetts. This is a unique game with some wonderful gameplay and great twists. The owner is awesome and we consider him a friend. It’s worth traveling to Mass for escape games and The Gate Escape is one of the main reasons why.

Puzzles

Some of the best gameplay I have ever encountered. A wonderful mix of physical puzzles and layered challenges.


Atmosphere

Much more character than most office games, with a unique twist that must be seen to be believed.


Customer service

The owner is incredibly kind, very hospitable.


Particularly interesting or different

Yes

I couldn’t explain what makes this game so unique without spoilers, but rest assured, this is unlike anything I’ve ever played.


Story

A unique story that continues between rooms.


Difficulty

Hard

The gameplay is challenging, but not to a frustrating degree. It will definitely keep a group of enthusiasts occupied for 90 minutes.


Game tech

Mechanical

This game is more mechanically inclined, but still incorporates some technology.


Ideal number of players

4

4 people is ideal for a number of reason, some of which are spoilery.


How scary?

Not scary

Brightly lit and non-threatening


Minimum age

13

There is nothing inappropriate, but it is a difficult game that may frustrate younger players


Was anything broken?

No


Live actors

Yes

While there is an actor, they do not factor heavily into the game and is separated from the players for most of the game.

Super innovative room and puzzle design. The puzzle types were very unique but still intuitive without any logic leaps.
