We visited to the new outlet of The Escape Artist since we liked the other rooms in their old outlet which were pretty good. Upon arrival despite booking weeks ahead, we had to wait another 10-15mins for the room to be preset. Even as the male game master was doing the intro, he realised he forgot to hide the key hanging down from the locked gate and stopped his intro midway to leave to get a chair. Another game master entered twice mid game, once to adjust another faulty prop, and another to explain a puzzle to us, DURING the 60 mins which kinda left us short for time. Some puzzles were nice and creative, most were just impossible to even figure out because they didn’t make sense. Immersion wise it was okay, puzzles were somewhat poorly designed, but the game masters were not the best at facilitating the game which really negatively impacted our experience.

Returned to try out an actual physical escape room "Night before the Storm' at the new Harbourfront outlet. The experience did not disappoint as the puzzles and layout were in theme, well-designed. The nice staff also explained the story concept and gave hints very patiently. An excellent bonding chance for us friends.

My friends and I decided to go to an escape room together as most of us had never been before. The puzzle was actually quite interesting and moderately challenging - really good for beginners! We chose Count Dracula and had an hour to solve everything and escape. The props looked pretty realistic and the staff was really nice. Highly recommend!

The puzzles were stimulating and interesting ! Great as bonding activity for friends, family, ranging from physical challenges to stimulating challenges, you will never get bored ! Puzzles are also original, setup and storyline is very intriguing, allowing you to be immersed into the game itself. Sufficient clues were given, good level of difficulty while still being able to solve the puzzles and the setups were very realistic. Overall great experience, managed to escape !

The Last light is a rather fun and challenging escape room, making use full use of clever answer input mechanisms and observational skills. The puzzles are itself logical and well thought out, without much logical gaps.

Tried the lost Forest and it was tough but fun! Played with 8yo son and husband.
Managed to escape the room with hints provided by the staff there.

The room was very eerie and the music they played in the background made it even scarier. It was quite hard for us to figure out the clues and we had to use up all our chances to ask the staff for help. Overall it was a fun experience for us.

Overall, The Escape Artist presented us both an exciting and challenging experience.

As a 4 member team, we tried the ‘medium difficulty’ escape room. The hints given were subtle and challenges us to think out of the box.

The rooms were also well decorated with props and clues were were thought out and crafted.

Our team appreciates the staff’s friendliness and responsiveness as they were quick to provide hints when requested. Despite the overwhelming number of challengers playing their wide selection of games, we admire their promptness and efficiency.

All in all, we agreed that it is an experience that have exceeded our expectations. That said, we would definitely recommend this to our family and friends. We look forward to our next visit !

For the 1st lock, it was relatively easy and we cracked the method on how to solve the puzzle even before the staff left the room... However the puzzle mechanism are faulty and we could not retrieve the key.

We called the staff and they responded that we need to wait for 10mins before help can be provided.

So at 10mins sharp, we called in again and told them their puzzle mechanism is not working. Whereby the staff came in, verified, and proceed to unlock the lock for us.

This is a waste of 10mins.... makes us wonder what were they thinking when we had already told them we solved the puzzle but the m*g**t is not working.

For the last puzzle piece that we didnt managed to solve...the staff didnt even managed to solve herself to share with us on how the mechanism work

There were many "hints" around that serve to distract too(have no purpose and does not help to solve the puzzle) . Which is probably one of its theme.

Other than that, the puzzle solving route is logical albeit complicated

The torch have some extinguished bulbs too. Still usable, but its light is not as strong as some other escape room we had played.

We dont fully recommend people to play given its faulty mechanism + inflexible staff protocol (that 10mins) :/...
