While many escape rooms feature the same escape room adventures, Mystery Escape Room has been shaking it up and changing their escape rooms almost on a monthly basis. This has given the owners the opportunity to design escape room games for many different themes. They also have been able to design many different online escape room themes as well. From Frankenstein and Dracula to Mission Impossible and Tom Sawyer.
Each escape room is carefully planned and created with the puzzle flow and theme in mind. It takes Mystery Escape Room months of planning and building before the final product can be enjoyed by their guests. Attention to detail is apparent when you enter each room. You really feel like you are there inside the world that they created. The challenges are unique as well. Each escape room holds many different puzzles that take you down different paths and come together sometime before the end. They are specifically designed to keep 8 to 12 people busy the entire time they are playing and to avoid a linear escape room experience.
The Officially Licensed Escape Room Adventures
Mystery Escape Room has created over 50 different escape rooms. Each one has been unique and different from the others. 3 of the 5 escape rooms that are currently playing are licensed theme. These themes include: The Secrets of Downton Abbey Escape Room, Nancy Drew Escape Room: The Mystery of the Missing Jewelry, and The Sword of Zorro Escape Room. These are one of a kind escape rooms themes that you cannot find anywhere else except at Mystery Escape Room locations.
Mystery Escape Room provides a fun and engaging Downton Abbey experience. If you have ever wanted to feel like you are there, inside the castle, this is a great way to experience just that. Not only do you get to feel like you are there, but you also get to participate in a classic Downton Abbey story.
Mystery Escape Room's 4th Dimension
Another way that Mystery Escape Room stands out is their unique way to monitoring an escape room. They hire actors to be a part of the experience. These actors are not in the room but are guides that play a part in the escape room experience. It makes it more fun to communicate with a character in the story rather than a person that is there to give clues. Clues are provided if needed but the character in the story is there to provide them.
This idea brings the escape room experience all together and creates a 4th dimension of fun. You meet the character at the beginning and they escort you to your escape room by traveling in a time machine. Once you are in your escape room, the actor leaves you to it but is available over a speaker system.
