ESCAPE ROOM: TOURNAMENT OF CHAMPIONS REVIEW

Following their escape from the Minos Corporation’s “single survivor” escape rooms, Zoey Davis and Ben Miller resolve to face the secretive corporation after discovering coordinates to their New York City headquarters in Minos’ emblem. Zoey’s therapist encourages her to move on from her trauma and overcome her fear of flying, but she prefers to drive with Ben instead of flying. The two come upon a dilapidated Minos headquarters and are approached by a vagabond who takes Zoey’s jewelry. She and Ben are pursued and lured into a subway train car, where they are trapped. The train car detaches itself from the rest of the train and is rerouted to a distant station. Inside the train, Zoey, Ben, Rachel, Brianna, Nathan, and Theo are trapped. Minos reveals that they are pulling the strings once more, and the train electrifies, transforming it into yet another escape room. The other survivors of past Minos escape rooms are revealed to Zoey and Ben.

As the train becomes more electric, the gang learns they need to collect subway tokens to get out. Theo is slain, but the others are able to flee. As the group relaxes, Nathan explains that his escape room group was made up entirely of priests, Brianna’s was made up entirely of influencers, and Rachel’s was made up entirely of individuals who didn’t feel physical pain.

The survivors go to the next chamber, a bank room complete with a rapidly shutting vault and a lethal laser security system. Nathan has a faith crisis while deciphering a complicated way to avoid the lasers and knocks himself out, triggering the lasers. The party is successful in determining the path and escaping with Nathan. Zoey is confused by numerous allusions to someone named Sonya and the fact that the escape rooms have no relation to the group when in the room.

The following floor has a beach with a hut, lighthouse, and more Sonya allusions. The beach is found to be covered in quicksand as the party begins to solve problems. Nathan gives up his life to save Rachel and is suffocated by the sand. Zoey discovers an additional path out of the escape room when she solves the room’s puzzle, just before Brianna unlocks the room’s intended exit. The gang has a disagreement, with Rachel and Ben side with Zoey. Brianna takes the main exit, while Rachel and Ben make their way through the quicksand to the other exit. Ben slips into the quicksand and appears to perish.

Zoey and Rachel are heartbroken by the deaths of their friends and resolve to bring Minos down. They escape into the city through a manhole, but they immediately discover they’re still in the game when they run across a terrified Brianna, who informs them that acid rain is being poured into the chamber on a regular basis. The gang solves the room’s riddle and unlocks a cab to flee, but the cab locks Rachel and Brianna out after Zoey arrives. Rachel and Brianna ultimately succumb to the downpour, while Zoey slips into the next room.

A journal from Sonya reveals the rooms are based on a great day out she had with her mother in the next room, a children’s bedroom. Amanda, Sonya’s mother, is shown to have survived her fall in the “single survivor” game and was forced to make space for Minos after they kidnapped Sonya.

Amanda enters the room and asks Zoey to take over as Minos’ next puzzle builder. Ben, who is confined in a cage, also emerges in the room. Ben’s cage begins to fill up with water as Zoey refuses, but Zoey and Amanda collaborate to liberate Ben. They create a fire in the escape room and manage to escape the institution by breaking out.

The trio reports their findings to the authorities, who collect Rachel, Brianna, Nathan, and Theo’s bodies, and the story about Minos becomes public. An FBI agent retrieves Zoey’s jewelry and tells her that Minos will be apprehended owing to Amanda’s testimony.

Zoey decides to go home with Ben, full of confidence. Zoey discovers on board that the plane is another escape chamber put up by Minos.

Sleeping gas knocks both Zoey and Ben out, as the Gamemaster mocks them for falling into their newest trap.
