originalpeacefulquite easy

Take to the open waters of the beautiful Norfolk Broads on paddleboards, and navigate between clues along the riverbank to solve riddles, open locked boxes, decode ciphers, and solve the mystery of a missing fisherman.

The puzzles are standard fare: mostly observational, counting, etc. (together with necessary map-reading and physical effort required to paddle your board along the river and occassionally getting off/on at the banks), but what sets this game apart, quite simply, is its setting. Where else can you play an escape room in the sunshine of a late summer afternoon, out on the open water, as herons, signets, and ducklings glide past you? It's completely family-friendly, the owner was absolutely lovely and all required equipment is provided.

My only suggestion for players is not to attempt to go for a high-score time on the leaderboard; instead, savour the experience and the beauty of the scenery and wildlife around you. Even though it's a 2 hour game, we simply didn't want it to end.
