My friends and I have been going through the Escape Rooms in Sydney and giving them all a go, and coming back for more because they're so addictive! We tried Mission Escape Rooms for the first time yesterday, and we had booked the Last Order room. I believe this room is the only one at Mission that isn't mechanical. Its more like the other places we've been to so far where you have to solve puzzles and codes to progress through the game. We were so close to getting out on time, and we loved it so much, that we decided on the spur of the moment to see what bookings they had for later that night. Luckily for us, they had one booking left on the Lost Mine room, so we chose that.
The Lost Mine is the hardest room and its also 100% mechanical. I won't ruin the room for anyone, but oh my gosh it was awesome. Being mechanical means that you aren't solving things with locks and codes, there are lots of moving parts. That's all I'm going to say.
I wouldn't recommend doing either of these two rooms if you have never done an Escape Room before (unless a few other people in your group have) as they might be a little too complex for first timers, particularly the Lost Mine. These two are also longer rooms, being 80 and 90min time frames to escape in, as opposed to 60mins in most places.
We just missed out on getting out in time on both rooms, so it was so frustrating, but a good result as we didn't get stuck halfway through or anything like that. So close yet so far, right?!
The staff were also really good at Mission, and they explain things to you at the end so you can see how you would've had to solve the rest if you didn't get out. They also have water waiting for you once you finish the room, and take some fun photos with you to for a memento of your time there.
We will definitely be going back to do the Dr M room (We were told Vampire Castle would be too easy based on our progress in the other two rooms). Can't wait to go back and give that one a go.
You won't regret going here, highly recommend!
