Quest Room’s Red Giant escape room transports you into an Egyptian tomb

Quest Room

Having completed over a dozen escape rooms, I wasn’t sure what to expect out of this back alley escape room in Los Angeles. I was pleasantly surprised with Quest Room’s “Red Giant” room since it puts you in an Egyptian-themed escape room filled with incredible scenery and intriguing puzzles. After getting your gear ready, you begin by walking into a dark stone room that makes you feel like you’re the Rock in Jumanji or Brendan Frazier in the Mummy. It starts off with a bang as you try to maneuver in a narrow hallway. And this is only the beginning.

One room leads to another and another, and each room contains puzzles that will test your different skills. There will be puzzle solving, clue catching, and light moving, and you have to test your limits before your 60 minutes are up. In that time, you have to worry about distractions from all of the intricate details in the room. Things like a sarcophagus, giant statues, urns, and other small totems will have you appreciating what they’ve built for you.

Although this isn’t a horror-style room, the level of darkness and creepiness sets an ominous tone as you try to survive. I thought they did a fantastic job of making a room that moved perfectly, and it didn’t seem to end abruptly as some other rooms do.

One thing that really got to us was one of the final puzzles that made us overthink. If I could give you any advice, I would say to take some risk and take a step back when you need to. If you have fun and work and survive together just as Nerd Reactor did, you’ll leave the room with a smile on your face and a sense of accomplishment within your team. I can’t wait to see what Quest Room comes up with next as they seem to continually surprise us with awesome and immersive rooms.

Synopsis: All your life, the Pink Pyramid has stood as a testament to the ancients who built it and the civilization that once stood. Your elders have told you stories about the treasure that lies within, though none who have ventured after it have ever come back the same. As a child you dreamed of being the first to find The Red Giant, the most valuable ruby in the world. Now, you, and your crack team of experts, stand at the mouth of the tomb that will either give you what you’ve always wanted or doom you for eternity… How far are you willing to go to find The Red Giant!

The Red Giant is an action-packed adventure that goes beyond most escape rooms. Set in the present, your team of archaeologists have made the trek to the “Pink Pyramid,” the rumored hiding place of a dazzling ruby and the treasure of the pharaohs. You’ll need to think quickly, as oxygen is limited, and escape the tombs, but will it be as billionaire, or cursed forever?
