Lots of fun and some very fun special effects. We fell foul to search failure a few times!
Lots of fun from start to finish.
Some nice set pieces to really tell the story. Not a scare room. Family friendly.
Fabulous hosts who are always happy to chat and make you feel welcome.
A clear mission and fun steps to get there. We really liked Dr. Frankencraft's Monster - the digital version. The room was digitized on the platform telescape which make sure we can use an inventory (a crate at our feet) and combine items by using keywords. This was well digitized though it was an early version, and we did not have technical problems during the game.
This was a very family friendly room with the only creepyness being bodyparts and lightning sounds - and of course bringing a monster to life.
We really liked the puzzles here. Weighing, connecting wires, snakes, magnets and so on were great. We did think that there was a bit of information overload with all the locks visible (a very lock-based game), a diary and a book, but with a few of those puzzles out of the way, we were happy again. We did jump the gun on a few puzzles since we could solve them without the clue given later. Since the game was multi-linear (you could say non-linear), that was easy.
We think the game could be improved by using proximity more as sign-posting. That the code found/extracted/calculated should be used near the items that gave the code. We did have to use some time trying out the different locks.
The theme was well executed and we loved the ending. Well done.
Puzzles were good. Part of our group had some technical difficulties that would not let them back in, so that was a bummer. I think in person it would have been really good. The flow was a little rough; back and forth between rooms which meant a slower time.
We loved this game. Played this as a family with a 8 y/o and 17y/o. it's great using a couple of devices as everyone gets to click around the room and be part of it and see what's going on.
This had some really lovely puzzles and love the ending. Would love to do this game in real life.
Thanks Lake's Escapes for bringing us another great game that's the next best thing to an escape room.
