Matt wanted to do an escape room for his birthday, so we visited Portland Escape Rooms for their Steampunk-themed escape. We made it out of the dirigible (although we did neglect to find that last life jacket for the captain. He said he was fine to go down with his ship)
Matt, myself, Greg, and Burt joined five other people we hadn’t met to conquer the various puzzles presented to us. This room had a reset factor, which kept everyone occupied the entire time. Whenever people were standing about, the costumed actors would tell us the flux-capacitor (or whatever it was) needed to be adjusted. I quite liked this as it eliminated the need to beat previous teams’ times.
It was also my first time with employees as characters in the room. They were very fun. This was an improvement over the guy who sat in the room with us, but was not a character.
