Escape the Circus Heist Review
In this box your team is traveling back to a depression era circus. You are trying to find and escape with an extinct Tasmanian tiger. The mission in this heist is to steal the Tasmanian tiger in front of a tent full of people watching the show.
Thoughts about this mission:
This is a family friendly box. There is not anything gory in this box, you are trying to help a Tasmanian tiger escape.
Who doesn’t love a circus theme! Circus, Carnival, & Amusement Parks are my favorite themes.
This theme is one of my favorites so I already loved this kit before we even opened it. We couldn’t wait to dig into this mystery and get started. This was our first Escape the Crate box we ordered to try before we subscribed. Since this is our first box I am not sure if they are all set up the same.
The box is colorful and when you open the box you can see some circus performers on the inside top of the box. Besides the envelopes and papers that are in the box there are a few other circus themed elements included, red nose, balloon and foam elephant.
Solving the mysteries in this mission was a great time. We loved this box we decided to subscribe to enjoy more boxes. The puzzles and things included in the box are great for older kids. There is not anything to disturb younger kids but most of the puzzles might be too hard to figure out. Great box and we can’t wait to try another one. It is too bad this only a bi-monthly subscription, we would love to solve the mysteries more often.
