You’ve convinced a few of your friends to head deep into the woods with you to explore the abandoned Fernvale Orphanage. You’ve all heard the spooky rumors. The door closes behind you and bolts shut. If there is a way out, you have no choice but to go deeper to find it. In just a weak glimmer of candlelight, you must travel down the path the director dug out many years before, casting the same spells he used to first open these doors. What was that noise? Is someone walking down the hallway? What happens if you're not out of here by midnight? Please, lost souls, heed this warning. Or book a room today...

Outcome: Successful escape!

Quite disappointed by this one. Set is great but very few puzzles to solve and the avatar wasn't really in character enough and just made everything a bit too easy.

Absolutely fantastic room in terms of theming, technology and immersiveness. Overall enjoyed it and the venue is spot on. A few issues with the room itself - it was high tech which is good, but a few things didn’t quite work without a hint from the games master (I.e. how to get it exactly right rather than actually solve the clue which we had done - frustrating and took away the immersiveness). Personally found the end very difficult to the point I don’t think I’d have got it without a lot of clues. Yes we escaped but would’ve been there all day if there wasn’t a time limit! Perhaps best for experts - would be interested to see if that’s the case.

Creepy buildings are a staple in this world and in this isn't the first abandoned orphanage I've been in.  There's a lot of technology in this room so don't expect many padlocks, this is also a dark room (but they will increase the overall lighting if you're struggling).  Ultimately I thought this room was anticlaimactic, the game was great but the lack of an ending stops it from being exceptional.
