Player review

“Stealth is highly recommended! A lot of fun puzzles to solve. You get a walkie talkie to communicate with the game masters and they also pass you a tablet that contains clues to the puzzles. We solved it with 4 people. Me, an experienced escape room player and the other 3 were first time escape room players, so it’s not that hard. But it's still fun for all! At the end, they will take a photo and print it out for you.”cptslowyeo (TripAdvisor)

“We made an online appointment, and were promptly served and ushered to our game room. We played the Legendary Swordsman, which requires some knowledge of the Chinese language.

Player review

“We picked Room 13 theme. Though the theme and setup was quite nice, I was disappointed with the number of clues to be solved in order to escape the room. For a 45 mins session, I think the clues should be kept to 3-4. I loved the horror theme and music. The price was good and reasonable. Escape game is one of the best experiences for team building and for puzzle lovers.”Ekta (TripAdvisor)

Player review

“Crime Scene's The Tenants Upstairs is a must experience. For me, the highlight of The Tenants Upstairs was its very clever, subtle use of evidence. You have to really think about the significance of certain items. Even though we found most of the clues and uncovered most of the storylines, we were still blown away by some specific pieces of evidence in the final reveal video.”randomvoice (TripAdvisor)
