Review of Let’s Play A Game Escape Room

Review of “Let’s Play A Game”
at Alcatraz in Hamilton

“You are the detective who has been called to investigate a murder, but not just any murder. It looks like another gruesome Jigsaw crime scene. When you arrive, however, there is more than meets the eye. There are more missing pieces than found ones, and everything becomes more complicated as you begin to see a bigger picture. Be careful how deep you dig because you may not like what you find. How far are you willing to go?”

Please note that this room is rated as 18+ and includes some staff involvement.  It’s considered a horror room.  While the atmosphere is creepy and dark at times, we still have to hand it to “The Final Viewing” for giving us the most heart-stopping moments!  We’d really love to see rooms like this involving the staff more than the typical “boo!” Jump scare.  While I understand that they’re not actors, some words, or actions like dragging a weapon or coming into the room to place or take an item would really take it up a notch.

The environment is very well done.  It’s edgy, creepy, and gross.  There is a lot of attention to detail but the room does show some signs of wear that breaks the immersion.

The storyline is well presented and the theme is carried throughout.

This is a solid medium-hard room with an assortment of puzzle types.  The puzzles are challenging but all very doable even a small group of two (though the room could easily accommodate four to six players.
