THE QUICK AND DIRTY
Play if… you enjoy freaking people out, like word play (the actors are clever), or are into S&M.
Avoid if… you have claustrophobia, hate clowns, or don’t like sci-fi.

Description (from the company website): THE ELEVATOR IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST ESCAPE ROOMS IN COLORADO AND ONE OF THE MOST UNIQUE IN THE WORLD! YOUR ADVENTURE WILL START IN AN ELEVATOR WHICH WILL TAKE YOU ON A THREE LEVEL JOURNEY THROUGH 6,000 SQUARE FEET OF HELLSCREAM. YOU WILL NEED ALL OF YOUR WITS AND SKILLS TO GET OUT AND ESCAPE WITHIN 60 MINUTES.
Difficulty (1-10): Medium or Hard (you get to choose, along with “Scary” or “Not Scary”)
Time Limit: 60 minutes
Party Size: Up to 6
Staging Area: This whole place is also a haunted house, so there’s a queue outside where everyone can line up then they bring you in. Once you get in, there’s a small area where you get the briefing before they start your game.

Note: The ERG were given the opportunity to try out this room for free, with the understanding that we would continue to provide an honest review and follow the same process we’ve used on all of our other ratings.
Description of the room: You start trapped in an elevator and need to make your way through the lab and basement before making your way out of the mansion.
Understanding of the Mission: Dr von Heltin does all his evil/crazy experiments in his home. You make your way from his lab to his basement and then you need to figure out how the hell to get out of his home. It’s fucking creepy (and, as I said, in a haunted house).
