This is a classic (dare I say typical?) Western-themed escape room. However the introduction to the room, blindfolded, and the scenario you find yourself in are immersive and believable enough. I don’t recall there being much immersive audio when I was there however that may have changed.
The room is well made with a variety of physical and mental puzzles. There are enough challenges and a variety of puzzles to keep a party of four to six people sufficiently busy.
The staff is friendly though they are not involved in the room once you get going. They’re helpful and won’t interrupt your play once you get going.
Because of the variety of ways the puzzles are presented and the need to use a variety of problem-solving skills, I rated this at a medium. It was a fun take on the classic western theme and worth checking out.
