⍟⍟⍟. Give or take recommendation by EscapeRoomers. This was the 7th room of the Blitz, and second in a row from MindQuest. It had some interesting parts, but it was kind of all over the place. There were some pretty major logical gaps in solving certain puzzles. Overall, I would say skip it, unless you are already at MindQuest, and want to do another low-priced room. See below for the full review.

“After the Cold War, not all the secrets comes to light! A military leader’s office can provide a lot of mystery. Time is limited, since a devastating bomb ticking next to you in the room. Will you find and deactivate it in time? Just depends on you!“
Again, no photo on Facebook for us. Should my feelings be hurt? We tried The Bomb after finishing The Matrix. Maybe it was because after getting out of The Matrix, the employee said something to the effect of, “I think you are the smartest two persons I have ever seen.” (*Blush!*) Between the two, The Matrix was more fun, more interesting, and overall a better escape room.
Between the two, The Matrix was more fun, more interesting, and overall a better escape room. The props and puzzles did not match with the theme. CD player and cell phones do not evoke the Cold War. There was a pretty decent variety of puzzles, but they didn’t really have much to do with the theme. A couple of them were quite a stretch. The items did not belong with the purported theme or story.
There were a few times were we were totally stuck, and had to ask for help. After getting a hint, it was pretty difficult for me to see how we were supposed to get to that point from the information provided. The flow was uneven, and a number of items were difficult to find. We stopped the bomb in time, with about 10 minutes to spare. This was not a very satisfying room, and our second highest hint request game of all 12 rooms.
Bookable from about 13:00 to 01:00 most days, closed Monday. Check their schedule online.
