This room was a bit easy for our team of fairly experienced players, but we had a very good time nonetheless.  Props to Host Bernadette and Prospector Harlen for infusing their enthusiasm in the experience.  A good range of puzzles with some elements I'm very sorry I didn't get to experience in person.  On the expensive side, particularly in light of how quickly we finished, but there were a lot of higher end finishes, like a very effective inventory system.

Reviews by escape room review sites

There may be gold in them thar hills, but in this Gold Rush you're not panning in any rivers, you're searching for a conveniently pre-prospected stash of gold hidden somewhere in a mountain shack - with the usual hour in which to find it before the mob comes along to claim it.
Gold Rush has an attractive set with a glossy, slightly theme park feel. If anything I suspect it looked better over the video feed, with painted backdrops looking more convincing as a result.
In parts it's also somewhat...
Thereโ€™s gold in them there hills โ€“ and weโ€™re certainly in a rush to get our hands on it!

We have to find the hidden gold before the mob do in this USA-based live online escape room.

The Escape Game is a known purveyor of "good, if not great" rooms, and this was another fine specimen, for sure: spacious, good-looking, with well-clued, fairly original puzzles. However, our experience wasn't good as the previous one...

A high-quality escape game available both online and off.
