We’ve enjoyed the Mission Possible escape rooms so far. The Wizarding World is in their Milton location inside of Champs sports bar and so there’s lots to do, eat, or drink at the same location, though not technically part of Mission Possible.
The environment is really neat and I would say progressively immersive as you move through the room. The room relies a lot on technology to determine if you’ve correctly executed a spell and that sort of breaks the immersion. In rooms like The Final Viewing or Secret Society, staff involvement is needed to determine whether you successfully completed a task or not. Having deeper staff involvement would make that room seem truly magical.
There were some unique puzzles and a good combination of puzzles. I would give this room a medium-hard rating and you’ll benefit from having a group of three to six players. We do most of our rooms with just two people and we were getting frustrated with the sheer amount of things to do – which is great! We love a challenge.
The staff was very happy and friendly and we’ll definitely be back to complete the other rooms.
