The evolution of our popular Operation Escape Room game – this time you are solving the puzzles in order to avoid a terrible lab disaster! Solve all three mind-bending puzzles – the test tube marble maze, the quiz master, and the atomic clock spinner – before time runs out!
Bought this for my daughter's birthday party (15). Wanted an escape room type game that could be reused. We played this several times with family (cousins same age and younger) and they had fun. It is more for younger kids (upper elementary/middle school), but it's nice that it can be used over and over and is fairly simple to play. "Lock up" person (buckle strap around person - can easily pop open with safety latch on back) to have to save "in time" and start timer (can change amount of time)... start with 1st challenge (spin spinner on a hollow, maze-like box, use plastic sticks to get out a key from whichever the side of the block spinner landed on)... use that key to activate 2nd challenge (answer 3 multiple choice questions in a row to reveal next key)... use that key for 3rd challenge (find last key in carousel-like box)... take key to unlock and "save" person (timer stops). They offer variations. It's reusable and is always fun to beat a timer, although it's not too mind-challenging. Getting the key out of the box with sticks is tricky (I think!) but you learn tricks after playing a few times. Our key wasn't popping out for the 2nd challenge as it should after answering 3 questions - it's easy to pull it out when it's supposed to only pop a little way out with each question answered. Good game for the price.
pretty cool game and very easy for kids to understand and play , surprisingly the plastic isnt that cheap , its actually more durable, this is definetly one of the better games from this company, my kids enjoyed this but unfortunately the excitement of this doesnt last more than a few minutes before it was forgotten about.
I bought this for my three grandsons ages 4, 8 and 9. They all enjoyed playing the game. The 4 year old cant easily solve the puzzles without help in the allotted time but he likes to wear the bomb and encourage his brothers to save him.
