This was my 3rd attempt at this room. This is kind of scary if you don't like being in a dim lit room alone but overall once you focus on the puzzles its not scary anymore. Super fun though and the most difficult room I have encountered, but also the first escape room I ever did as well (the first time i did it).
100% Escaped Escaped 35
The Hex Room room had been on my to-do list for a while now so last night my group of 6 went in to see if we could escape it: We did! We escaped and survived! Team Dynamics: Two players with 40+ rooms, Two players with 15+ rooms, One with 5 rooms, and one who had only done one room before. Location: The building was easy to find and there was tons of parking in the private parking lot. Staff: We were immediately welcomed by 3 smiling and friendly employees who greeted us, handed us waivers and character questionnaires. Be honest when you are filling these out as this is what they use to pick your characters. Don't lie and say you aren't claustrophobic because if you do, you may find yourself in a tight space! After filling the forms out we locked our personal items away in the provided lockers and were guided into the briefing room. Briefing: There we were shown and well produced video of the room rules. It wasn't your typical "Don't break things...2 finger rule" type of video. This was an in character video which gave you some storyline and also explained the rules and clue system for the room. Our Game Master, Mykie then announced to us which character roles we would be playing as. I was given, the detective. Clue System: Hints are given at the Game Master's discretion and must be relayed by the Detective to the needed rooms. I enjoyed this because unlike other escape rooms there is no hint limit, so if you come with someone who is completely new to escape rooms the GM will be able to give hints to help them and it won't cost the team one of their hints. Room Design: (It's not a spoiler since it on the website) Everyone starts out in the own room, separate from the others. The Detective is in the middle and is capable of "interacting" with each separate room. Be sure that you have a quick and capable detective because they will need to understand what everyone has in their rooms and what they need, if anything, from the others. The rooms that I got to see were all elaborately themed, lighted well, and had there own sound system to set the mood for the room. There is a timer in the main room so for those of you that need to know how much time you have (like me), they've got you covered! Puzzles: The puzzles that I had in the detective room were not super difficult but that could be because I have 40+ room experience. From what I could tell by discussing with my other teammates, their puzzle were not extremely difficult either. That being said though all of the puzzles were entertaining and immersive. Nothing felt out of place or like it was just thrown in as filler, it all made sense. Hex Boxes: Each character has their own Hex Box which holds your key to survival in it. It's an optional box to open but it if you have the time to solve it, I recommend doing so. There was a point where I finished everything from my room and each of the characters were working on their own rooms so I just sat on the floor and solved it. We did get to a point where some of our group was solving of characters boxes, so don't worry if you can't figure it out because maybe someone else in your group can! Ending: We escaped with 37 seconds remaining because we didn't want to leave one our hex boxes unopened. If we didn't try solving it we would have been out with about 7 minutes left, but we wanted the extra challenge. Overall: Fantastic room, and I recommend it for both beginners and enthusiasts! The decor, theming, immersion, and set up make this room stand out for the others. I am so glad that we made the trip down to try out The Hex Room because it was well worth it! I hope one day my group can go back and try the Fun House and the room they are currently working on, The Psych Ward!
