This escape room is based on the Zodiac Killer film and follows through a series of rooms. The first 3 rooms are themed well and have an intriguing atmosphere. The decor and props were appropriate to the story and of good quality. The final room did come across as slightly random and didn’t seem to follow the theme of the rest of the rooms.

Some of the puzzles were imaginative and fun to work out. Others, however, relied more on guesswork than logic which interrupted the flow of the game.

Overall, there were some good aspects of the room.
