I’ve seen the inside of a lot of Egyptian tombs in my escape room career. I’ve seen overwhelmingly fancy Egyptian tombs… and I’ve seen Egyptian tombs that looked an awful lot like offices. I can best describe Escape Room Pittsburgh’s approach as dynamically minimalistic. It hit all of the right beats, and felt great without a ton of detailing.
From a gameplay standpoint, The Tomb was entertaining and engaging. It had strong Indiana Jones overtones, and a plot twist that we didn’t see coming and enjoyed wholeheartedly.
At times, we found ourself frustrated with laggy technology, and some apparent ghost puzzles (we also found these in Escape Room Pittsburgh’s Carnegie’$ Million$). Those hiccups aside, The Tomb was thoroughly enjoyable, and well worth playing if you are in the Pittsburgh area.

- Adventure seekers
- Puzzle lovers
