Our first visit to Improbable a year prior to this visit opened our eyes to what an immersive escape room really is. They put so much attention to detail into their builds, their puzzles, and their staff, that it’s hard to fault them in any of their rooms. Rest assured, all of their rooms are great.
Technology. There is a LOT of tech in this room. There are no traditional locks. But don’t worry – you’re not supposed to know how to run a submarine, you’re supposed to figure it out. An observant crew will be able to figure it out. If we could do it with two people (with 12 seconds to spare), your team can do it! All of the puzzles fit very well with the story, the theme, and the setting. Puzzles at improbable take a unique perspective to solve.
I’ve said it in other reviews – it is REALLY hard to pull off a submarine or space ship escape room. It’s often too easy to see the wooden structures and textures and it sucks you out of the experience. With their Jetsons/Art Deco take on the submarine, it comes across as a really cool specialty ship and there’s so many great features to the room that you lose yourself in the space.
Potential spoiler about later in the game: Not only was the submarine one of the better made ships we’ve seen, but the underwater section of the room is really really good. There’s so much attention to detail and so many props and decor items in this room, you couldn’t even see it all if you tried. And not just lots of props, high quality, hand-made stuff. It’s the little touches like the bubbles floating in the air above you that shows the incredible amount of detail that the owners put into the space.
There were a few items where we docked some marks but we’re not going to list them here because they don’t matter. This is a great medium difficulty room with enough space for 4 to 6 players, though it may get a little tight toward the very end.
