Escapism was amazing! My husband and I had so much fun working together to solve the clues. We loved the theme of the room and the really well thought out clues. It takes a real talent to create this escape room! If you're looking for something different and fun for your date night or group of friends, Escapism won't disappoint!
I really loved (without giving away any spoilers) that there were many different kinds of clues that were concealed in different ways, used different kinds of intelligence, and required different strategies to solve. We each contributed at least one major clue, and the hour just FLEW by with all of us working on different things.
