Completed both rooms at this location!!
First off, the one everyone wants to hear about - THE ORPHANAGE: Incredible room. Our 10th one to be exact. We came to complete this room with a party of six, and it may be my favorite I've ever done at 60OUT. The production design is incredible and probably some of the best I've seen at the company. It is definitely spooky, some puzzles pop out after being completed, sound effects are played, and THE ROOM IS DARK. Just putting it out there - it is almost pitch black at first & you don't have any lights, so just be aware! Near Halloweentime, this room was absolutely perfect.
The production design in one part of the room in particular is absolutely beautiful & unlike anything I've ever seen at 60OUT. We finished the room in 32 minutes & as the difficulty is "Medium," this definitely does feel like a Medium level room. Other Medium rooms at 60OUT feel more difficult than the "Hard" ones, but this one was linear & straightforward at times. We were so sad when it ended, we loved it so much!
Our game master, Michael, a.k.a. THE DARK LORD, was amazing. He was so nice & definitely helped in immersing us into the experience. He played a character throughout when speaking to us. Once I left the room and came back to reality, I truly felt like I was leaving another world. Thank you, Michael! You are truly fantastic.
Next off, we have NAUTILUS: We came here months ago with a group of 5. Overall, the production design is wonderful & immersive as well. However, my only issue with this room is that the puzzles don't really make sense or connect at all - it isn't really linear, so we found ourselves extremely confused more than a few times. We escaped but after tons of hints & only seconds to spare. Wouldn't really recommend. It is nice to look at though! And our game master (forgot her name; it was months ago), was great too! She called us "passengers" & helped a great deal.
Overall, THE ORPHANAGE is the best room I've been to at 60OUT, and Michael (Dark Lord) was one of, if not, the best game masters we've ever had at the company. We can't wait for TURING TEST to arrive! We will definitely be back!
