Newer OmEscape rooms at this location (Sorcerer’s Sanctum and Pandemic Zero) are fully immersive, with a really impressive set and technology and lots of interactive puzzles. The beginning of Sorcerer's Sanctum is great and really fun, with some interesting high-tech features and progressions. Towards the end, however, I feel like it gets too text-heavy (you have to read all these rules and detailed instructions before you can even understand what the puzzle is and how it works and begin to solve the puzzle) which in my opinion takes away from the overall experience. I wish the puzzles at the end were more intuitive and required less explanation, the last thing you want to do when you’re crunched for time is read 3 paragraphs of detailed instructions. “A” for set and technology, “B“ for puzzles. Overall a good room to do, though it is challenging so I would not recommend it for beginners.

Summary: A solid room with clean puzzles and tech and can accommodate a large group. Puzzles: A puzzle heavy room. All the puzzles were thematic and techy, with some unique elements. Immersion: Story was a little weak, but the set was well-decorated and the puzzles were on-theme. All the puzzles were automated. Execution: The game flowed smoothly. We were split into two groups in the beginning, but both groups managed to combine around the same time. You do miss a few puzzles due to the split team, but not that many. One puzzle didn't trigger the first time, but otherwise it went smoothly. Group size: We had 9 people with a mix of beginners and intermediates, and this was a good size for us at the time. People were not idle for very long. An experienced group could probably do a group of 4-6.
