What to expect?
A staff member led us down a hallway to our room and gave us a quick orientation.  Once finished, he returned to the control room, where he continued to monitor us for the duration of the game.  He was an omnipotent presence that provided us with clarifications and and gave us three free clues when we got stuck.
Hallway leading to the room
The room is decorated to give a realistic feel of your chosen scenario.  Anything in the room can be used as clues to solve the puzzle, so keep your eyes open.  Some clues are more challenging than others but completely doable with some effort.  Your effort will be worth it in the end, as the clever clues and room set up will reveale a lot of fun surprises.  

Our group of 8 chose the Casino Royale room and escaped with 30 seconds to spare! It’s a fun activity for the family or a group of friends that will get everyone to work together.  If you're claustrophobic, no problem.  Just press the exit button anytime to leave the room and come back.  But where's the fun in that?
