Review Of Wild West At Jigsaw Escape Rooms
This review of Wild West at Jigsaw Escape Rooms will be spoiler free.
Castle by Jigsaw Escape Room has long been one of my favourite escape rooms, and one I often I recommend for others to try. I prefer non-horror themed rooms, as I find the theme is old and I’m just not into the horror genre. Which is why I loved the castle room, the medieval theme is expertly designed with fantastic puzzles, and it didn’t need to be creepy.
That being said Wild West is my new favourite room at Jigsaw Escape Room and one of the most enjoyable escape rooms I’ve done in a long time. I can’t praise it enough.
The room is said to be medium difficulty, and I think with a group of 4-6 adults, most people should be able to escape within the hour. For myself, I did the room with a bunch of escape room veterans, so we smashed through with 17 minutes still left on the clock.
All the puzzles and challenges in the room are unique, and ones I haven’t seen before in other escape rooms. Without giving anything away, I was very impressed by the creativity in the design of the challenges. With a group of 6, in pairs, we were able to have each group of 2 working on a different puzzle at the same time, so everyone felt like they had something to do.
All the puzzles have a logical order and make sense. You can tell this room was carefully planned. The result is something super enjoyable, and one that my entire team loved.
Wild West at Jigsaw Escape Rooms is $26 a person and located at 12 Byward Market Square, Unit 2.
