Really enjoyed the Mayan room at Other World escapes. I’ve done a few of these and this room offers something for first timers as well as the more seasoned escape roomer. There were three of us but I think four would probably be your optimum...More

Hi Matt, thank you for your feedback. I notice you haven't mentioned which room you played when you visited Other World Escapes - I'd be keen to hear which room you played and which particular props and puzzles you felt needed more professional work. Please...More

Just finished the Maya temple, birthday party for three 12yr old girls. They loved it and can't wait to do another room. Really well set up, challenging puzzles, the lady in charge could have been nicer and more helpful. Would definitely recommend this others.
