Omescape: Pandemic, San Jose (CA)

20 minutes to spare with no hints!
Omescape Pandemic deals with a virus breakout in the sewers and the story gives a slight nod to the 1990's "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" cartoon.  It was one of the most enjoyable room due to the quality of the room designs and seamless automation of reveals. The production value for this room was exceptional and it was also very spacious, probably only second to the Palace Games rooms which are already ridiculously large.

The environment was really immersive and each room played well into the progression of the story. The puzzles varied from room to room and the secret doors blended in well with the surroundings.

Pros: A lot of rooms to explore, nice technology and very professional landscape (even the waiting area)

Cons: Some puzzles are too straight forward, as in there are instructions that tell you what to do.
  • Set/room design: Excellent!
  • Technology/automation: Gen-2 (high tech)
  • Difficulty: Average, although they have it as 4/5 difficulty...
  • Number of players: 3-6, private room (we recommend 3-4)
  • Price: $30/person
  • Duration: 60 minutes
  • Overall Rating: ★★½
