Confundrum is the top-rated escape room in Burlington and has a great location with lots of activities to do with your group while you’re waiting or once you’re done.
Twisted Woods was the first scary room that we completed. The story is well set up and the experience is creepy from the start. Confundrum does allow you to vary the scariness level of the room which is nice – we chose the maximum.
The staff involvement during the gameplay is good. It gives you some jolts to your heart which you then laugh at yourself for falling for. The room contains a wide variety of puzzles and the immersion is very good. Some of the elements are a little worn out from people misusing them which breaks the immersion towards the end, and there is noise from the adjacent rooms at times, but otherwise a decent room. In fact, coming back to this review, I’m going to say that the props here are beaten up pretty badly – much like in New Haven Orphanage. The popularity and success of Confundrum have led to decor and props being very worn down. Confundrum needs to turn on all the lights and put some serious repair into some of their rooms in order to keep providing the best experience in the area.
The difficulty is medium-hard and you’ll benefit from having 4 people in your party.
