Mr.X is in a mall on the second floor in Sanlitun. I was unable to find a website in English so I went to the place to book. You can also book on Dianping by searching Mr.X.
The rooms available at this time in English are the Alcatraz themed room (60mins) and the House of suicide (75 mins).
Our group has 6 people and we chose the house of suicide room. We did not finish in time (2 mins late) but the staff didn’t stop us or interrupt the experience, probably because we were so close to the end.
The clues were of moderate difficulty, if you’ve never done an escape room I imagine it would be quite hard.
The staff can speak some English and equip you with a radio so they can communicate with you if you are on the wrong track or you are doing something you shouldn’t.
The rooms are very well designed, there weren’t any things that could be mistaken for clues, it was very clear which items you were supposed to use.
I would recommend going with a minimum of 4 people as there are some difficult areas that require you to split up, and would make escaping solo or in a pair almost impossible.
Overall, it was an excellent experience, and we definitely want to try the other English room. Compared to other escape rooms I’ve done, it was the most elaborate setup, and probably the most creepy! I would definitely recommend!
