The Black Room at Escape Zone is one of my favourite 45 minute rooms. The story is that you and your team have been handcuffed and kidnapped, but the room is essentially themeless. The room is currently rated at intermediate, but I think it’s a room beginners can enjoy as well. The decor is random and the puzzles are random, but what I like about the room is the overall design of the puzzles. The room is filled with small victories. I think most players (and especially beginners) respond well with to this format. In my experience, it’s only the more veteran players that enjoy a bigger deferred payoff. There’s only two 45 minute rooms I’ve played so far (at the time of writing this) that were interesting enough for me to recommend, and this was one of them.
