📖 THE STORY

You are a member of Explorers. One day, your team member Sophie opened an old

Egyptian artifact called "The Key of Destiny" which summoned the ancient God of Chaos - Set. Since then, the world has been altered, and Sophie has vanished. Now, you have about 60 minutes to solve the challenges by Set to find Sophie, and to return the Key of Destiny to your headquarters before the world is completely changed forever!


🎯 HIT THE BULLSEYE

  • Since the theme was about the reality altered by "The Key of Destiny" and an Egyptian god, it was not entirely about ancient Egypt or the modern world. The room had a mixture of items from those two worlds (at times, I lost the immersive feeling of a full Egyptian theme room when I found materials that don't belong from that era). I felt I was fully immersed in the world of the altered reality in this room. I believe that the theme worked out cleverly. Because of the setting, the mixture of modern and Egyptian items coherently helped to give a variety of puzzles without breaking the immersive feeling.

  • I admired the details of some of the props in the game. Those were unique, artistic, and mesmerizing. I loved the way that the creators of this game decorated the room. I felt their passion for making this room!

  • Because the number of chambers was already revealed, there might be no surprise factor like discovering an unexpected place. However, every time I moved into a new space, I felt a great sense of accomplishment and so much excitement. Each room had a different vibe and a new unique set of puzzles to enjoy. As we moved on, my teammates and I had moments of “Oh, Wow!” especially toward the end. I loved how the game flowed.

  • There were a good number and variety of puzzles in this game. Some puzzles were conventional so that beginners could have a chance to shine. I loved that some had nice twists and originality. All of them made sense, and I enjoyed them all.

  • We could read hints in envelopes left in the room. Or, if we needed more specific suggestions, we could ask our game masters. I liked that they gave us options.

  • My game masters, Darryl and Erica, were nice and friendly. They explained well how the game goes to a novice on our team. When we needed hints, they gave us exactly what we needed. I felt they were paying attention to what we were doing. They guided us nicely.


🧩 MISSED THE MARK

  • One of the gadgets was not working smoothly, so one of the game masters had to stop the game for a moment. He handled the issue well. After we finished the game, we tried the gadget again, and it worked perfectly. (He said that it never failed before. I think things like that happen when a reviewer is playing. Lol.)


🏹 TAKE A SHOT?

"The Key of Destiny" is an exciting and joyous escape room newly opened in Calabasas, California! Although it may be a little easy for a group of enthusiasts, I believe there are a lot of puzzles with charms and uniqueness that everyone can enjoy in this game. This escape room is perfect for a fun night out with friends and family! So, why don’t you gather your team and dive into the altered reality to challenge puzzles created by an Egyptian God of Chaos?
