Final Score: 9.01
Atmosphere & Customer Service
1: How easy was it to locate the attraction, park and navigate the premises? (25%) 9.2
Nothing truly dangerous although I would not be surprised if someone complained about the hand cuffs. As they can catch on things as you are trying to explore. However we enjoyed the reality of it.
2: How safe was the attraction? (30%)

9.2
We were able to find it quite easily. The signage is hard to see until you are in front of the building looking to the right.
Finding parking seems like it could be difficult.
3: How professional, helpful and friendly were the staff members? (25%)

10
Cait and Jenee were excellent. Bianca who provided us access was also a pleasure to deal with.
4: How comfortable & welcoming is the lobby area? 7.6
The lobby is small and plain. Although I imagine most people wont be waiting that long.
5: How well did they promote a puzzle-solving environment? 5
Unlike their other location, the lobby lacks a puzzle-solving environment.
Atmosphere & Customer Service Score: 8.2
Immersion
How well was the room detailed? 10
The room was detailed well, it felt like a basic jail cell. I liked the touch of the pin up girls. The office area fit nicely and reminded me of an old-time local jail that you would see on Andy Griffith.
How well did they use sound effects? 8.4
Sound effects were minimum with light background noise. For this room I do not think it took anything away from the experience.
How well did they use lighting effects? 9
Lighting effects were used sparingly but in a different approach than we have seen before.
How creative and original is the story? 7.8
There was no back story to this room. It was a straight forward escape.
How well was the them executed? 10
As previously stated the design and set up felt just like a real prison cell and office area.
How well did they achieve suspension of disbelief? 9.4
Immersion Score: 9.1
Gameplay
1: How logical were the clues & puzzles? 9
The clues were logical and fit the theme of the prison. The use of items and puzzles were engaging. The only issue was one of team mates tried to hook something and dropped it so far away Jenee had to come in and move it closer or we would have never escaped.
2: How helpful was the Game Master and any hints, if provided? 10
Jenee did a great job of supplying hints when we were stumped. I like the notes being slid under the door as it felt that someone was trying to help us escape prison from the outside. We also had an issue with something else in the room and were quickly assisted.
3: How interactive were the clues and puzzles? 9.8
The puzzles were all interactive requiring communication between our team.
4: How creative and original were the clues and puzzles? 9.8
The clues were very creative as items were hidden very well in a small area.
5: How easy was it to keep track of your remaining time? 10
The iPad provided a great way of keeping time. If you are a person that gets stressed by the time you don’t have to look at it. If you need to know how much time is left than you can look at. A good way to keep both parties happy.
Gameplay Score: 9.72
Entertainment & Value (15%)
1: How entertaining was it, given the ticket price? 8.6
Even though it is a basic room with no story it has a lot of great concepts.
2: How accurately was the room’s difficulty advertised? 9.4
At 30% it was a good challenge. Being a smaller room experience (not the smallest we have seen) it was not shy on difficulty.
Entertainment & Value Score: 9
