At first, this room is quite intriguing. A lot of elements went into the spaces that make up this room.  The puzzles are very intelligent and well laid out.  However, there is more to making a great atmosphere than an abundance of props.

We visited in the winter and the space was very cold.  It is already in a very hidden location down an ally and it would be nice to feel a welcoming vibe on arrival.  Although the staff attendant there was great, the bare, cold, and dim environment doesn’t make you excited to have arrived.

That being said, clearly, a lot of thought has gone into the puzzles themselves.  This room can handle a larger group of 4 to 6 people and indeed probably needs more than 2 as we were unable to complete the room in the time provided.
