Super cool, but I can't imagine the lines for this thing. Say you have ten minutes to try and escape. 5 people per group. That's only at 30 people per hour. Or say at most it's five minutes. That's 60 people per hour. Then there's the need to explain what to do - I can see the lines waiting to go in to be hours long. I'm definitely going to try anyway, but I can see this taking all day =) It would have been better if they allowed appointments just like Westworld and Legion.

I think they are running two teams at a time. So that doubles those numbers. Also, things like orientation can happen while another team is running it. That's what they did at Mr. Robot last year. They told you everything you needed to know while your were waiting to get into Elliot's apartment. Mr. Robot also had a limit to the number of people and a set time it took. If I remember right it was 12 people at a time and 5 minutes for the experience. Took about 2 hours standing in line on busy Saturday.

Cool, that helps a lot when you put it that way. I missed out on the Mr Robot experience last year and it seemed like a cool experience. 2 hours still seems like a long time to wait in line (I've been slowly turning into an old fogey throughout the years of attending in terms of line waiting), but if I hear good feedback about this escape room, hopefully the wait will be worth it :)

Concur while this sounds awesome I think the line will be a nightmare.  They should definitely do like a theme park thing where you walk up and get assigned a time to come back during the day.

You know me so well! When do you want to do the offsite?

This sounds neat.
What are you, Worf? Do you tremble and quake with fear at the approach of combat? Hoping to talk your way out of a fight like a Human? Or do you hear the cry of the warrior, calling you to battle, calling you to glory like a Klingon?
