📖 THE STORY
Your relative has suddenly died and you've been named the sole heir to a relative's house and all of its possessions. You must visit the house to claim your inheritance from the caretaker. Something eerie about this place leaves you to wonder what exactly happened to your relative and what's been left behind?
🎯 HIT THE BULLSEYE
"44 Winterwood Lane" is storytelling at its finest! During our game play, we kept getting chills down our spine every time we unraveled a mystery and a piece of the backstory.
The set design was spot-on with simple little details to really create that eerie atmosphere. The usage of props and dolls and the positioning of them was well thought out.
The puzzles were implemented creatively with the story line and the misdirection was well executed.
GM was in character even before the game even started. This really bought the immersion to another level.
🧩 MISSED THE MARK
If I were to suggest anything to make the room better, it would be the use of lighting effects. Although the room already has a haunting atmosphere, it would've been great to have blackout moments which would require the use of lanterns/ flashlights to enhance the spooky vibe.
🏹 TAKE A SHOT?
If you love films like "Annabelle" or "The Boy", then you'll enjoy "44 Winterwood Lane"! Haunting mysteries that reveal their backstories are great and even better when utilized in an escape room because you actually feel like you're apart of it. There's also a couple of jump-scares in this room to satisfy the haunt fans. Our favorite moment was when we had to vote on who gets to open that door!
