The Room – 7 Deadly Sins: RETIRED
Description (from the company website): “Seven Deadly Sins” is the most unique, and easily the most challenging escape room experience we’ve ever created. In five and a half “ancient” and elaborate rooms, you and a group will be tested to your absolute limits to overcome intricate puzzles, time-sensitive obstacles, and a difficult environment. More intense than our original rooms, all of your senses will be tested to escape the seven sins.
You enter through Pride (the first room) – will you leave with Pride, or be Envious of the ones that escape?
Difficulty (1-10): not listed
Time Limit: 45 minutes
Cost: $25 per person
Party Size: Up to 8.
Staging Area: It’s in an old movie theater that is supposedly haunted, so pretty damn creepy.
Metro Access/Parking: Not metro accessible at all. The theater is in a strip mall so there is plenty of parking.
