great hostingfamily friendly

A nice little room that's straightforward and logical. There's nothing big or fancy here but the hosts are lovely and the puzzles makes sense. We really enjoyed our time in here.

This was fun, yet overall a pretty average room. The puzzles are fairly interesting and the theming in the room is good but there was nothing especially exciting.

Decent room, nothing too complicated and a few novel puzzles. Would be good for new or inexperienced players
