Brent Chadwick had a rough childhood. He grew up in the shadow of his mother, Lucille, founder of the "Church of the Untemptables" (COTU). The COTU was a Christian-fundamentalist church in the 1980's that preached;
"Resist all temptations, but if you aren't able to resist, you still have the chance of salvation if you punish yourselves equal to the sin you have committed."
So no wonder Brent went crazy and, after his mother died, moved to a hidden room - the very room you are about to enter. This dimly lit place can only be escaped from by finding the urn of his mothers ashes and then placing it in it's rightful resting place.
If you fail, and you're still there after an hour, Brent will arrive, and I wouldn't want to be in your shoes when he does!

Another great TRAP-designed room. One skill based challenge is likely to frustrate, particularly for shorter players so if you lack patience make sure you bring the right people along! Great them and a good final puzzle.
I'm writing this review more than two years after playing the TRAP rooms, so my memory is unreliable and they may have changed anyhow - the Bomb Room for one appears to no longer exist. Also, we played all four rooms in a crazy consecutive burst of enthusiasm, which makes it harder to remember which was which.
However, it's safe to say that the TRAP rooms were good mass-market escape rooms with more of a emphasis on physical puzzles, almost with a Crystal Maze feel. Everything's robustly design...
Reviews of games at X-Dimension and Happy Hour. The former was a disappointing game at a franchise where I’ve heard reasonable things about other rooms while the latter was the sort of good game you expect when TRAP designs are involved although not quite as good as it should have been.
Un soir en accompagnant un ami à la gare de Lyon, nous voulions rentrer chez nous lorsqu'on s'est regardé et nous sommes dits.. et si on se faisait un petit escape, comme ça à l'arrache? Nous voici prêts à sauver la terre d'un terrible virus mortel crée par un professeur fou. Qui a dit encore ? Tout d'abord, je dirais que cette mission serait parfaite pour initier quelqu'un aux énigmes d'un escape game, si elle n'était...
