Tic Toc Escapes – The Green Room (Review)

Location: Raleigh, NC

Players: 3-8 (We recommend 4-6)

Price: $30 per person

Time to Escape: 60 minutes

For those about to rock this room, we salute you.

Theme:

As a rock band getting ready for a gig that could be your big break into superstardom, you’ve found yourself locked in the green room with only one hour to showtime! You’ll need to figure out the musically themed puzzles and break out, or you’ll never break into the industry!

First Impressions:

The first thing I noticed walking into the Green Room was the classic rock playing on a radio nearby, and the sheer amount of excellent decorations that abounded. The theme of the room was well encapsulated, and held steady throughout the experience. Nothing felt cheap or out of place, and we were instantly excited to begin our adventure.

High Points:

This is one of the best rooms Raleigh has to offer. The original and interesting theme, interactive décor, and sheer amount of well flowing puzzling rocks. Tech is used sparingly, but to great effect, and all puzzles include interesting interactions and wonderfully on theme ideas. One puzzle in particular that I really enjoyed included sound, which is rare, and even rarer are instances where it doesn’t feel out of place, but it was perfect for this room. There were plenty of non linear puzzle threads expertly woven throughout the room, which more than kept everyone in our 7 person party occupied. Every inch of the room felt like it had been lovingly put together for maximum entertainment, and the little touches here and there really made the room immersive.

Low Points:

This room is so well put together, that it was hard to think of anything that could be described as a “low point.” As a very minor critique, there was one puzzle that we found the solution for, but didn’t feel clued enough to lead us toward where we needed to input it, but we quickly figured this out.

Verdict:

This is a particular favorite of mine, and one I recommend to anyone who has asked me what rooms they should try when they come to the Raleigh-Durham area. Tic Toc has wonderfully original ideas, and create fantastically crafted rooms around those ideas. An all around great room, The Green Room is approachable for beginners, but has enough puzzling meat for enthusiasts as well. I could gush all day about this room, but you should book your escape here and experience it for yourself!

10/10 (Sublime)
