Cursed? More Like Cute...
I went for this room as I like a spooky challenge. Little did I know...
Return to the cursed carnival to rescue a doll possessed by a girl...or is that a girl trapped in a doll? Even so, our Game Operator said our mission was to find said doll to sell it on the black market. Who knows.
Straightforward, standard solving with the odd carnival game or two thrown in.
There were plenty of circus-themed articles, but none had been given the horror twist I expected. The Hall of Mirrors was a highlight.
We bossed it as a team of two. No one else is needed. In relation to 'Cursed', the name is very inaccurate, but as for 'Carnival', it's spot on. The difficulty rating should be two stars, not three. Overall, a chilled and amusing room.
A fun, slightly eerie experience. The carnival theme is great throughout. The decor and props work well to create a good atmosphere. I was expecting it to be a bit scary and jumpy, but it wasn't.
There are some nice games in here and it kept the 2 of us entertained. A fairly easy game though, larger experienced teams may finish it quite quickly.
Do not be fooled. This room is rated 3/5 difficulty and posed as one of the easiest games on their website, however it was not easy by any stretch of the imagine. This room has LOADS to do.
Some rooms have a great mixture of math puzzles log puzzles, obvservation, physical puzzles etc. Cursed Carnival is very VERY padlock heavy (which we dont actually mind) and involves a lot of searching, (something else we dont actually mind)
Its greatly on theme throughout and the puzzles are perfectly logical. This actually turned out to be our favourite room of 4 that we played in one day (disturbed, dark magic and excalibur being the others)
Some people may be put off by the theme, however its purely there for theming and storyline, and not scary at all so perfectly suitable for all
We escaped the Cursed Carnival at Breakout Liverpool back in 2016 with Team Raging Clue. We picked this room as it was the easiest one according to the stats, so we can slowly and surely build up to the most difficult rooms. The layout of the room itself wasn’t that bad, with new surprises at each corner and a nice carnival soundtrack. We had a good fair amount of laughs throughout our 44 minutes of game but I regret few things: – the lights being maybe too bright indulging a bit the atmosphere of what could have been a really creepy carnival room; – some puzzles were a bit far-fetched (and even after sleeping on it, we still haven’t understand their logic). – and finally, the ending was a bit of a let down: the door opened by itself before we finished completing the last puzzle… ! We first thought someone opened it by mistake as we were still trying to sort out our last puzzle!

We have sinister dreams about a doll possessed by a little girl that wants us to help free her from a carnival. Can we save her?
