We were in the Dark Side of the Moon Room, and I would call it chaotic. The only other escape room I’ve been in was more sequential, in that there were X clues that you had to solve before entering room 2. This room had...More

Kinda both in my experience. You follow clues. Sometimes they end at the answer and sometimes it takes a few answers to make a code to escape.

$27 (including tax) as of this post. You have an hour to escape the room.
