Story & setting
Trapped in steerage aboard the sinking RMS Titanic, we had to escape or lose our lives to the freezing North Atlantic.
Titanic’s set felt industrial and ship-like. The walls looked like metal lined with rivets. The ceiling was deliberately designed. All of the puzzles were born of set-based interactions.
Worked deeply into the set, each interaction felt part of the ship. Most of the challenges weren’t all that difficult, but they were satisfying.
The set and the interactions built into it were tons of fun.
Each solve felt large and frequently cinematic.
Early in the game I encountered a puzzle that I thought was truly out of place and silly… until later in the room escape its presence suddenly felt brilliant.
A few props and interactions had too much wear and tear. They could be refreshed with minimal investment.
Titanic felt a little light on content. It would have benefitted from another puzzle or two.
Given the exciting interactions along the way, I wanted a bigger, more intense ending.
Should I play 60Out’s Titanic?
Titanic was a lot of fun. The puzzling and large set were wonderfully intermingled and satisfying to solve.
Titanic was a cinematic adventure that put the players in the starring role. We experienced the drama. While it wasn’t the most challenging of escape rooms, the journey was exciting and fun.
When my biggest critique is that I wished Titanic delivered more of what it did so well, it’s a room escape worth visiting.
Book your hour with 60Out’s Titanic, and tell them that the Room Escape Artist sent you.
Full disclosure: 60Out provided media discounted tickets for this game.
