We visited the room in December 2016 and as usual we are late with the review. I know, again shame on us. We are one step closer though. Check out the HOT TIP in the review!
NASA lost control over Hermes – a spaceship that’s carrying a very important document which may not fall in wrong hands. As an experienced astronaut you’ve been chosen to get it back. Hermes is programmed against possible intruders, so once you’re inside it will destruct itself in exactly 60 minutes. This will be the time you have to get safely back on Earth.
New theme, never played such a theme, so completely new on all aspects: provider, theme, game-play and hopefully technology.
First room tried from Let Me Out was a big positive hit. Having been a bit disappointed by the level of escape rooms tested so far, we found this escape room to be really well done with several elements that should exist in every escape room.
The game is linear with some very interesting puzzles. Very good use of technology and also special effects along with sound effects. The room took several months to build and fine-tune the puzzles. We had a lot of fun, and we can say that it’s one of the best games we played from a fun versus difficulty standpoint.
Atmosphere and design
Atmosphere is well entertained with background music, interesting lighting, sound and special effects. You can really tell that they put a lot of effort in building the room, even though the room is clearly done in a do-it-yourself home-made kind of way. The puzzles and also decoration look like DIY but they are sturdy and look like they can handle the hordes of people that twist and turn every single piece of knob / button / alien in the room.
Let Me Out operate 3 rooms with 3 different themes at the time of this review. Minimum number of players is 2 for any of the rooms.
Reception area is very well done with props for photographs, several types of drinks, coffee, tea and a social games area to keep your mind busy in-between games. There is enough space for birthday parties or company events, and they have a separate room for events that need a projector.
Further information and observations
Currently they are the cheapest operator of escape rooms in Brussels (per person).
