Better Than We Expected

We love in-person escape games so we weren't sure how we would feel about a live video version. Our group was full of introverts so we were anxious about having to interact with the Game Guide the whole time. We were pleasantly surprised that this wasn't an issue at all. Thanks to the Game Guide/Master/Host, we had such a fun time and completely immersed into the game! The Guide was funny and made us all feel comfortable. The game was fun and clever. We were really impressed with the way we could actually input numbers and push buttons to make something in real life in the video trigger or open or activate! So cool! We will definitely be back to play the other live video games here!

Exceeded Expectations

We did this as a family with our 3 kids (6, 10, 12) and we all had a blast. Our host was excellent...full of energy and just the right amount of helpful. The technology was perfect, easy to use and see everything, interactive etc. I can't think of one thing I would change. Highly recommend.

Great fun

Just the right difficulty level. We really enjoyed it.

Great family fun in a virtual format

Well designed for a virtual experience. Friendly host.

Dec 2020
This was really fun and great for our team building event!

Our host was great, and this worked really well virtually. We were hooked and our team of 5 was able to solve the room with 2 minutes and 30 sec to spare. It was the perfect level for us non-experienced escape room players and we were able to play off of each other easily over the platform. I'd definitely play another one!

Dec 2020

We had a family of 8 playing, ages 9-70 and all loved it! Challenging enough for all and the younger players could follow along just fine. Great host and amazingly interactive.

Brought my non-escape room experienced, non-technology familiar family!

And had a BLAST! Thanks, Rock Ave.

A lot of fun

We've been missing escape rooms in 2020, and finally broke down to try a virtual escape room. Ready Mayor One was a lot of fun, and captured a lot of what we were missing from a physical escape room. We had a mix of moderately experienced players and new ones, and we managed to solve the room -- though we did run a few minutes over. The host was fun and helpful without giving away anything too obvious.

Highly recommend the virtual experience for new and experienced players.

Great host with a great, immersive and interactive game!

Highly recommend. Rob was a great GM with some solid acting skills. As players, we triggered some of the props in the online inventory and that was really cool. It was great-totally give it a shot!!

Sep 2020
Great Experience!

We were really concerned about doing a virtual room, but it's specifically designed to be straightforward enough without being linear. Great puzzle, wonderful browser tech. Just wonderfully done.

Jul 2020
Would Highly Recommend

My friends and I loved Ready Mayor One. We've done more than a few virtual escape rooms over the last couple of months and Ready Mayor One has definitely been one of our favorites. The host was great, it was super interactive, and it also made us think. We would highly recommend this room.

Jun 2020
The standard to which all online escape rooms should aspire.

These guys really have figured out how to make the online experience work. They have even created online versions of various parts of the game that you can interact with. The GM is also a really nice guy, who gave us exactly the nudge we needed at one point. Bravo!

Jul 2020
Funny theme but fun and good room

This was the third such room I had tried. I really liked it. The 360 view feature helped a lot and it had a good variety of puzzles. Would recommend.

Jun 2020
Straight forward fun

This is a classic escape room with some great tech thrown in that let us really feel like we were still manipulating things in the room. The GM had a great personality and rolled with the jokes we threw at him. I gotta say, overall, great experience. We also played the second room and that was equally fun. Definitely check them both out if you can.

A well-designed virtual adventure with a pleasant pace of progress

When it comes to the spectrum of escape room players, I would place myself as a casual player - I don't play too often, but I've also played enough to be accustomed to the basics of escape room games and getting into the flow of them. For me and my 7 friends (who are also in the casual group), Ready Mayor One was a great, balanced blend of challenging and entertaining that we've come to love and look for when exploring real room experiences in our near-by cities. And what makes Ready Mayor One particularly excellent is that it achieves that same thing, but as a virtual room game.

I know first-hand just how difficult it can be to properly translate an in-person experience into a virtual one, because technology could make the whole ordeal feel more limiting where you would hope it would make things more flexible. It generally feels different when you can't walk freely around the room or directly fiddle around with the props and puzzles you find, but I think that's exactly why Ready Mayor One was so special to me. I could tell Rock Avenue Escape Room took the time and effort to not only overcome the technical hurdles of a virtual escape room, but also adapted to what a more technically grounded game can deliver to the table - and as a result, they made something both fresh but familiar. They made something that works for everyone - whether you're tech savvy or not, whether you're new or acquainted to virtual escape rooms, or whether you're new or acquainted to escape rooms in general, they make it work.

The game itself is fun and well-paced: the room is elegant, clean, and easy to explore, and the puzzles while sometimes challenging are definitely doable. In my opinion, their game hosts alone are worth the price tag of the game. Rob was our host for the game, who not only was witty and engaging but also made sure to gently help us along the couple times my friends and I felt stumped.

Overall, if you want a virtual escape room experience that's new but easy to pick up, check out Ready Mayor One. I guarantee you'll have a blast. And if you get Rob as your host, tell him to twirl - he makes a great model.

I really didn't think a virtual escape room could work this well.

I was so impressed with Ready Mayor One. I feel that if I was doing the room in real life, I would have definitely enjoyed it, but the way they reimagined the story and the tech they used to let us see the room (and even push some of our own buttons!) was really impressive. I highly recommend giving this room a go. I'm about to sign up for Ready Mayor Two!

Jun 2020
What a fun time!

This was such a cool online experience! Interactive and puzzling! The AI knew everything and it was so strange. We escaped with 1 second!

Jun 2020
Fun and challenging room!

This was our first experience with a live video escape room. I was pleasantly surprised. I think this is a great way to be able to play a room that you might not otherwise have the opportunity to visit. The puzzles were clever and just challenging enough for a fun time. We finished with 3 minutes left. That's a well-designed room! The gamemaster was great and he was skilled in adding just enough to the game to keep us from getting stuck without giving away unnecessary hints. Would recommend for sure.

Jun 2020
Fantastic experience!

This experience is exactly what makes the virtual escapes so unique. The interaction with Rob (the game-master) was fantastic. Not only were we solving puzzles, but we were constantly engaging him and having fun with the banter. The inventory system in the room is sleek and fun to use.
Highly recommend this room.

Jun 2020
Great online interaction.

We have played over 100 escape rooms. This was our 5th online and easily the best. They have figured out the right amount of interaction so that you feel like you are not being led to the answers.

Jun 2020
Straightforward escape room adapted well to a virtual environment

Thank to the Rock Ave folks for our first virtual escape room. The Zoom+Web combo worked well. Host was great. Reminded me of doing escape rooms in pre-COVID times.

Jun 2020
So much fun, a great room that translates well to digital.

I would recommend this room to anyone! It had a few more interactive elements than others which was nice and Mayor Rob was not pushy or giving us any hints we didn't ask for which we really appreciated!

May 2020
Well-done virtual Escape Room!

We had a great time playing Ready Mayor One. Our guide, Mayor Rob, was very entertaining and did a nice job of showing us the room and following our instructions to solve the room. The room was challenging and incredibly fun. The set-up they used allowed us to view pictures of the room and its contents and solve some of the puzzles from home. Being interactive really enhanced the experience. We liked it so much, we just signed up for their other virtual room, Ready Mayor Two! We had 9 people playing from 6 homes. What a wonderful way to be able to have fun with family spread across the country.

Apr 2020
Really fun room

The game was great by itself, but Rob made it even more fun and even included some nice little touches to personalise the game.

May 2020
Fun family experience!

I have done this room twice- once on site and once virtually. As much fun virtually as on site! Game master is hilarious and helpful ( and his sidekick was awesome too!). The interactive components were clever and the overall experience was top notch! You won’t be disappointed in this game. The owners truly care about your experience and attention to detail is paid on every clue. Do yourself a favor and check this one out!

May 2020
Very immersive, clever and fun host

My family loved playing this game. The Mayor is so funny and helpful, but without giving any unnecessary hints. He completely lets you work at your own pace and enjoy the game. The games themselves are very interactive - way more than you would think when doing it online. You can see the objects in your inventory, then you can even engage with the objects by clicking on them and they'll open things in real time. It's amazing programming! It makes the game so immersive. When my friends kiddo had his birthday, and with quarantine being a bummer for the kids, she booked the game for her son and his 4 friends to play. They were still talking about it a month later. The story line is a lot of fun and I would highly recommend Ready Mayor One!

May 2020
A great virtual time with family

My family had a great experience with Ready Mayor One. Rob did a fantastic job as the mayor and his charm really added to the overall experience. In addition, we loved being able to share the experience with family across the country. I can’t wait for the follow up and we have already bought a few sessions as gifts.

May 2020
So much fun!

This game is a blast, Mayor Rob was such a great host. He kept the story going and helped us save the day along with good jokes that had us laughing the whole game.

The live remote experience is really fun, we had four in our team fron four different locations.

Check it out, it's a great time and fun way to get your escape room fix.

May 2020
Well Thought Out!

We just finished playing Ready Mayor One, and it was so well done and executed. Our team of 4 was able to work on things together and separately (thanks to the cool inventory system). The "mayor" was extremely witty! We will definitely be signing up to play the sequel. Great job!

May 2020
Great Host

This room was great but having the host be so funny really made it that much more enjoyable. Rob was awesome at keeping the game going and light. He does a great job.

Apr 2020
Very Fun Room!

You won't waste one minute in Ready Mayor One! This escape game has so much cool stuff that you won't be able to take stock of it all until the game's over because it's fast paced. Great mix of analog and digital steps, lots of surprises even for brain addled escape addicts.

Our whole family played, the content is for all ages. We laughed a lot and everyone solved some steps, you won't be disappointed with this one!

High energy GM makes this game great

This is a fun game, it’s got some really cool bits in that I won’t spoil here but you’ll not be disappointed. But what makes it great is Rob the Games Master, he’s high energy and really fun to interact with.

There’s also an inventory system, a separate website where you’ll be able to inspect the items you find as you find them. This is really useful and allows different people on your team to solve different parts of the game. Since I played Rob has added some very cool sounding extra features, this was a great game before those changes and I’m sure it’s even better now!

May 2020
Interactive tech was amazing!!

My wife and I have done a lot of in-person escape rooms, and weren't sure about this. The "inventory" seemed a bit complicated, but it turned out to be amazingly easy, and super fun to interact with!!! We strongly recommend doing this virtual game! The gamemaster and play was fun and engaging!

Apr 2020
Great virtual escape room

Rob was very friendly and funny. The puzzles were interesting. Really immersive experience. It has been my favorite virtual experience this far.

Ready Mayor One is leading the way for virtualized escape rooms, and was enhanced by the online format.

This was what I envisioned/ wanted when I thought about a virtual escape room.

The online format enhanced this game.

Ready Mayor One was a clinic in the importance of context and execution. —

Remote Play Review: Ready Mayor One
Rock Avenue Escape Room is helping to lead the industry through this very challenging time. [...]the online inventory system that allows players to see detailed panoramics of the space. The second elevating aspect of Ready Mayor One is the always energetic, and always ‘on’ Mayor himself.

It certainly takes the cake. —
