What secrets hide between the marble statues, antique vases and priceless paintings? Only one way to find out…"
Evil Genius Escape Rooms is one of the foremost rooms in terms of offering truly immersive story-driven gameplay. Chapter Two picks up right where Chapter One left off—if you're coming into this room as a standalone, the transition might not feel as dynamic. If you're doing the two hour experience that Evil Genius Escape Room offers, you'll be thrilled with the transition between the chapters.
The second of the Evil Genius Rooms is very different stylistically than the first. Far more linear than the divide and conquer nature of Chapter One. Set design is convincing, down to the last details—museum audio guides that act as clues for the puzzles—this room truly does feel like a high end art gallery, until things change just slightly. The puzzles are very linear and more difficult in this room, don't be afraid to ask 'X' for help if you get stuck.
Two tell-tale signs that Evil Genius cares about the player experience, the true small maximum player size of these rooms (6) and the private booking style, both of which we love. Again, if you can swing it, the ideal way to play their games is as a back-to-back 2 hour blockbuster experience—which makes your team feel like the star in your own movie. They also offer standalone for the typical escape room experience, and these rooms absolutely stand up in that category as well.
Both of these Evil Genius Rooms have an awesome chronological storyline—their two hour experience is a must-play in the LA area.
