What the Lock?:  People often ask if our rooms are step by step, one direction.  Escape rooms can vary in their design.  Sometimes they are linear, where the next step comes right after the one you just completed.  Yet other times, they can branch like a family tree. There can be many directions people take all at any given time.  Teams can collect pieces for use later or complete puzzles as they encounter them.  That's one of the fun parts of game design.  You never know what you get each time you step into one of our fun themes.  So my question is, which direction will you choose?  Will you travel to the 1800s, the 70s or dive into a magical realm?
