Please refer to our “Pirates of the Golden Skull” review at Solve It Sherlock regarding their location and other details!
Our second room here is one of my favorite themes: “The Magician’s Secret”. The story line is that Farazan, a great magician, was performing in his last show at the "1893 World’s fair" and just vanished along with a very rare and valuable Queen’s diamond! Hmm…I wonder what happened there? We were sent into the room to investigate this century old mystery.
As we entered, the theme felt like we arrived at a circus fair. The maintenance of the condition of the room and props were great. We knew from the previous room’s mistake that we had to start cracking down on puzzles right away as there seemed to be a lot of obvious non-linear ones, we each can take on. There was one particular puzzle we felt the wording was a bit confusing, so we had to use a hint on that just to make sure we were in line with their thought process. It was fun to follow through once we knew what they were going for. There was a good amount of tech mixed with the traditional locked puzzles in this room. One prop took a while to operate on as it had to be very exact. This puzzle was also a bit more challenging for me to operate on as it took some strength and having a height advantage would be helpful. Even though the difficulty level was rated higher for this room than the pirate room on their website, we were able to escape with two people with ample time left on the clock. That is why it’s hard to rate the difficulty levels for the escape rooms as what one determines as easy may be harder for another.
Overall, we enjoyed this room, but we are super psyched to try out their “Quarantine” room next as there’s quite a bit of “excitement” we heard that awaits us in there….
ETR Overall rating: 8/10
