ESCAPE ROOM REVIEW – THE QUICK AND DIRTY
Play if… you enjoy Egyptian themes, pharaohs fascinate you, or you “enjoy” being entombed.
Avoid if… none of the above speaks to you or you are afraid of the ancient dead.

The Room – Pharaoh’s Revenge:
Description (from the company website): You’re part of a large archeological dig team that’s looking for lost artifacts near the Valley of the Kings. After a routine supply run, you return and realize something went terribly wrong. The other members who stayed behind at the dig site are lying outside of the field office, barely conscious and near death. Now it’s up to you to figure out what caused this sickness and help the team before it’s too late.
Your time inside the room is limited. Do you have what it takes to solve the clues and puzzles to save your team?
Difficulty (1-10): Easy to Moderate
Time Limit: 60 minutes
Party Size: 2-10
Staging Area: The 47 Seals’ rooms are within Fort Fun. From the entrance to Fort Fun, go straight past the counter to the staircase in the back and up said stairs to find the rooms. There’s a small waiting area with lockers and couches (but take your stuff in the room since one key opens ALL the lockers, meaning you don’t get to keep the key with you, the GM does).
Metro Access/Parking: There is a large parking lot for the Fort Fun facility.

I am not entirely sure why this one recorded the way it did. Sorry. ~Jason
This is the video we took just after we completed the room:
Description of the room: You start in a room with a center pillar and symbols on all the walls. Plenty of space for a larger group if you have one. It’s a very clean-looking room; feels like there should have been some sand on the floor.
Understanding of the Mission: Solve all the puzzles to figure out what caused your colleagues to fall ill and cure them before it’s too late.
Did We Escape: Yes
Time Remaining: 15…ish
Our Suggested Party Size: This is one of the few rooms rated up to 10 people that could actually FIT 10 people comfortably. However, I still wouldn’t recommend more than 6, 8 people tops. There wouldn’t be enough to do (though there IS the space).
Did the room challenge the entire team? Yes
Members of our team (other than the ERG): Steph D (And we forgot to take a photo after…)
Worth the time and money? Yes.
Where to Eat/Drink Before/After:
- Fort Fun is only about 8 minutes away from the main drag with all the restaurants and such, but we recommend Chick’nCone.
