According to our GM, the Twilight Zone is their beginner/entry level experience. Linear in nature and child friendly, I would recommend no more than four players in this experience.
Venue / Lobby Info:
Located within a mini mall, you will enter a well lit venue that reminded us of a dentists office or tanning salon - a well lit front lobby and reception station, and a long hallway with several rooms along each side are visible. The waiting area seats about 6 players - with several rooms at this facility, I would expect/anticipate a larger lobby. No real artwork or design work is visible, the walls are pretty stark at the moment.
Public Restrooms: Yes

Call prior to booking
Game Introduction: There isn't much of a game introduction - no video, no back story... We were given the rules and led into the space.
Operator Intro: OK
Theme: Abstract / No Theme
Narrative: Abstract - No Overarching Narrative
Main room first glance: OK
We walk into a large room decked out in checkerboard - everything from the walls, floor, ceiling... It was a bit overwhelming. Please note: If you suffer from migraines or vertigo, this room is NOT for you. There was some furniture lining the walls of the room, but overall the room was pretty bare..
Flow: Excellent flow - flawless and coherent
Linear in nature, we were able to discern what came next at each point within the room. The flow made sense, and we could follow along with ease.
Puzzles: Good puzzles
Puzzles within this room stayed at the beginner level, keeping the room a solid introductory experience to escape rooms. A range of different puzzles and locks were present, giving new players a taste of what escape rooms should feel like.
Easy to follow flow - unique decorations
Technical difficulties meant lots of wiggling of wires or prop elements for items to work correctly. New players may give up prior to solving the puzzle. - no theme or story line present
