I don't give out 5-star reviews lightly, but this is truly a 5-star escape room! If you haven’t done the two-hour experience at Evil Genius, you haven’t lived in the LA Escape Room world yet! Chapter two, Norcross Art Gallery was by far the most challenging of the two rooms at Evil Genius. The theme was simple yet incredibly well executed. This room had a cool feature that uses sound to give clues on what to do next, and the use of artwork gave it a unique flair. There was a short part that was a little bit scary for my taste (I don’t do well with horror themes), but most would consider it mild, and you don’t have to worry about anything jumping out at you. Each room had its own music that fits flawlessly into the experience and added to the full-immersion you can expect in these rooms. Both rooms also feature video that is both funny, useful, and unique. The more I think back on this room, the more I realize how incredibly smart it was. The theme is so simple, an apartment and then an art gallery, but both rooms found a way to make it to the top of my list. While each room can be booked on its own, I consider the two-hour experience to be an absolute must for any escape room enthusiast!

I did the Norcross Art Gallery back to back with chapter 1: Occam's apartment. I loved everything about these two rooms and the attention to detail that was given. (even the name of chapter one, google Occams razor and read the first few sentences on Wikipedia, brilliant). The room didn't rely on tech and really embaced the museum theme. My only complaint is that we were able to open one of the locks with the wrong key but were able to figure it out based on the puzzle and closed it again.

Really loved this room, and every few weeks my group randomly exclaims "Where the hell is the new Evil Genius room?!" This room was tough, but fair, and featured a great twist that I personally never get tired of. Excellent integration of setting and puzzles, with so many things you'd expect to find in an art gallery - yet so many you wouldn't. Seriously though, where is part 3?!
