To date this is my only failed room, early on in our escape room career. Had we had more rooms under our belt I'm sure we would've escaped and by no count means this is a bad room or experience. A traditional escape room with some interesting elements and puzzles. The one downside I found was the use of a vent despite the briefing focusing on not touching elements such as sockets, etc. And it was this that cost us our time. Other than that a good room and spawned an empire
Story - you're in a old mansion finding a dead body also you need find out the conspiracy theories secret and reveal it to public in 60 mins before the police show up
Theming - it's set in a old mansion so it look quite bland and empty which was a massive disappointment. There Weren't that many prop and theming so we can't just look around and appreciate the theming but we couldn't which suck. There is some good theming but very lacking
Puzzle - this room is not easy (especially we done 5 rooms in 1 day! So we was tired) as you have so much to do and it gets harder as you progress further which was the last puzzle that was the hardest (even harder with a team of 2) some unique but some extremely stressful puzzle (last puzzle) quite alot of padlock (I loved it).
Clue system - via TV
Positive - some unique puzzle, the story was interesting and the intensity at the end was great.
Negative - theming wasnt great, some puzzle were stressful, one padlock was so sensitive, I cant remember if there was music and I hate the last puzzle.
Overall experience - out of the 5 rooms I done in 1 day this was my least favourite as it was too stressful and lacking of theming. I will still recommend it anyone who wants a challenge bring at least 4 players.
