ESCAPE ROOMS – ESCAPED VEGAS ZOE – NV

ESCAPED VEGAS: ZOE

Zoe is an incredibly scary and fun adventure conveniently located in the heart of the Vegas Strip. Playing Zoe is like stepping into your own role in a real life scary movie. It’s puzzles, storytelling, scares and fun all in one place. I was impressed with the set design, props, puzzles and staff. They really nailed the set-up and scare pattern that works so well in horror. I especially love that final memory the guests leave with, not only is it visually stunning but it’s heightened by the fear in that moment. It is a fun experience for anyone that enjoys a bit of a fright. I highly recommend Zoe for beginners and escape room enthusiasts alike.

THE VOID – VR IMMERSIVE GAME

THE VOID

We played Ralph Breaks VR at The Void at the mall location in Glendale California. This experience is amazing. It’s an interactive game where you become a cartoon character in the world from the animated feature Ralph Breaks the Internet. Even though the world is virtual, you do actually interact with physical items and walk throughout the space. It’s really incredible. I went in thinking it would be an escape room like the other virtual escape rooms we had played previously at other companies, but was not disappointed even though it is absolutely NOT an escape room. You are playing a game and you can compete against the other players. It is a wonderfully fun and immersive VR experience. The staff was very professional and friendly at this location. I highly recommend it.
