For three years in a row, we have brought our students to Esc4pe in Burlington, and every time, with a different group of teens, they rank it as the highlight of their week-long escape room... more »
The puzzles were OK. However, they need more staff who can actually watch you play. At one point, we asked for a hint and they gave away a major puzzle, instead of a smaller hint to lead up to that puzzle. I think they may have thought we had solved it already, but...we hadn't. Other hints were for puzzles we'd already solved. We also waited 5 minutes foe one clue as they were busy dealing with another group. All unacceptable. You should have more than one staff member for that reason! Two parts of the game were at least slightly broken, delaying us,and ultimately interfering with our ability to solve. When showing us the resolution at the end, the guy couldn't even make it work! Decor and atmosphere were not immersive. I asked about the story, and the staff member gave a half hearted rendition. He was clearly uninterested. Also, no photo at the end! Oh, and their outside door is locked. Very odd for a business.
We had fun! It was a good puzzle. Attention to detail is always the key. This also applies to the folks that work there. The employee who set up the room left a door open into the other room and we spent several minutes on a clue that was supposed to open the door. It would have been helpful if the Observer told us that we didn't need to spend time with that particular clue. But still a good time!
