Lock’d is a great starter escape room if you’ve never done anything like it before.
We did the museum warehouse room, so this review is based entirely on that challenge. I have yet to try any of the other rooms they have.
All the riddles and puzzles in this escape room are very straight forward, decently challenging but not too difficult. They all make sense, we overthought some of them though which made us take a lot more time than it should have. Sometimes the easy answer is actually the best answer!
As a beginner, it was quite challenging to get through, but in hindsight with more escape room challenges under my belt I’d say this is not for very advanced teams as they might have too easy a time and be a bit disappointed at getting out too fast. It did take us 58 minutes as a fresh beginner team that had only ever tried anything like this in Yelp’s Licence To Escape event, which features short, 5 minute challenges from several escape room companies. So if you’re new to this, this is the perfect one to start with! You’ll learn a lot about the techniques and details of escape rooms with this one.
It was definitely a lot of fun to get through this one!
