There are so many reasons for people to love escape rooms that it’s understandable why there are so many different studios around. Since there’s apparently no way to create an ultimate escape room that would suffice everyone’s tastes, it is necessary for creators to work on themed rooms that would express certain aspects better than the others. A story can’t be both extremely threatening and heavily puzzle-centered, for example. In order to help your guests get the fullest experience, you have to choose.
With Mission Escape Games, it’s only enough looking at their rooms once to understand what direction have they chosen at some point. They have escape rooms in five cities in US, including New York and Philadelphia. And in every city their rooms are extremely dark and scary, just like a horror story or an apocalyptic film.
The interesting fact about the studio is that they don’t have copies of their rooms in every city they’re available in. They also only set up no more than 2-3 rooms per city, so if you liked their first two stories and crave for more, you’ll have to travel quite a bit. There are some repetitious adventures, like the one with the “Hydeout” – the hiding place of infamous Mr. Hyde. But several other quests, including an innovative story with ancient Asian themes, are only available in Flushing, Queens.
