THE QUICK AND DIRTY
Play if… you love zombie movies, or the Resident Evil movie or video game franchise
Avoid if… you neither like zombies nor being touched by one (or participated in way too many (in)voluntary lab experiments)

Time Limit: 25 minutes
Cost: $15 per person
Party Size: Up to 8.
Staging Area: It’s an old movie theater that is supposedly haunted.

This is the video we took before we entered the room:
This is the video we took just after we completed the room:
Description of the room: You start off in a lab with a zombie chained up in the inner room.
Understanding of the Mission: You have to figure out how to get to the next room without getting killed by the zombie and then find the antidote to the zombie plague.
Did We Escape: NO. We needed like 3 more minutes.
Time Remaining: See above
Our Suggested Party Size: 6 (our 8 was a little crowded)
Did the room challenge the entire team? No. There were times that 1 or 2 people were standing around.
Members of our team (other than the ERG): Alphonzo, Eric, Eric, Mark, Katheryn
Worth the time and money? It’s cheaper than a normal room because it’s only 25 minutes. Probably worth tacking on as a second room of the day, but I wouldn’t go specifically for this one.
Where to Eat/Drink Before/After: Just call it a day and go to Five Guys.
