This is our 38th escape room (Lightweight, I know...), and Amityville has ended up towards the top of our list! This location has also officially become our favorite 60Out location in all of LA! We have done all 3 of the rooms at this location, those being Cartel, Hyde and Seek, and now Amityville (they are currently working on a 4th room!), and these rooms have what a lot of people would look for in a great room. The puzzles flow seamlessly and don't feel like "puzzles for the sake of puzzles". Another great part of this location is the set design; we were talking to the incredible Patrick after the game (I'll go into how great of a game master he is in a second), and he told us that something this location strives to do is make each room look beautiful and authentic, and I honestly believe that they have blown the roof off of what an escape room can do in terms of visual design. Major props to the set designers that have made each room at the Silver Lake location look so beautiful and real.
Lastly, we have had the privilege of having a man named Patrick run our last two games here, which was Hyde and Seek as well as Amityville. Let me tell you, I don't think I've met a better human being running escape room games than Patrick. He is incredibly helpful, while also not holding your hand through the puzzles, takes great pride in the work that each room has to offer, and it an insanely hilarious individual. After the game, we were discussing things that happened during our game (mainly how much of a coward I was, in all honesty), and it quickly became a genuine and funny conversation, where we would just discuss funny things people have done in the room before, or even sharing our escape room recommendations to each other. I wish him all of the best, and I hope that his excellent customer service is not going unnoticed.
All in all, this room was pretty scary in our opinion, but winning is so worth it, and the challenges you face during were perfectly created to feel like the real deal! Well done you guys, can't wait for the next one!
