Psychotic Janitor? Yes. Psychotic Janitor. Well, it certainly is a unique theme. The room was okay, but there were way too many people for this room. A few cool puzzles, but I’d recommend checking out some others before you try to escape the psychotic janitor.
“In our first game you are trapped in a mysterious basement were an old psychotic and bitter janitor used to work. Can you escape the room before time is up? Success requires teamwork, creativity and puzzle solving.”
A bunch of locks, multiple rooms, random tools, maps and a ‘love room in a weird have high space’. Still with me? A few cool puzzles but only about 3 out of all of them. 7 of us escaped in 48 minutes with 1 hint. 5 of the people were first-timers. 7 people were too many for this room. I’d recommend 2-4. One of the people in our group said she didn’t do anything the whole time. For first-time escape roomers, standing around doing nothing is not a good introduction to the activity.

Perhaps now is the time to rant about mediocre escape rooms. Maybe it is because we have had the benefit of doing so many interesting, diverse, and exciting escape rooms that we are becoming jaded with these half-ass rooms.
As escape rooms get better and more high tech, it is nice to see at least a little bit of technology incorporated into the room. Or even if there is no tech, the room should at least be well-designed, or well decorated. Good eye candy can do a lot for a room with an interesting theme. This room could benefit from an overhaul.
