📖 THE STORY
A group of friends went out for a hike and were lost in the woods. A storm is approaching their way and they finally discovered a cabin deep within the woods. They decided to ride out the night in the cabin only to discover….
🎯 HIT THE BULLSEYE
The set design of "The Cabin" was incredible. From approaching on to the porch to inside the wooden cabin, we felt fully immersed in the atmosphere. The sound system was great too.
There were no live actors in the room but due to the design of the room, we constantly thought someone was in there with us or there was a pair of eyes “watching”. We felt jumpy every time when lighting and thunder hit.
The story was told through the puzzles and had a nice flow.
Another special lighting effect during the latter part of the game gave me goose bumps when it happened.
🧩 MISSED THE MARK
We escaped not knowing that we were outside the room already. But we got confused because we didn’t open a certain lock yet, so we thought the game didn’t end yet. The game master came in and congratulated us. She said we didn’t need to solve that particular puzzle and can still escape. That was very confusing to us.
We were never explained prior to going into the room that there was a bonus puzzle. So, since we had plenty of time left when we “escaped”, we went back in and continued to play until we solved the bonus puzzle. This is the first time we escaped and went back in to continue to play the game.
A clearer conclusion would be great.
We were able to get out of the room quite quickly. We felt like we wanted to be in there longer to enjoy the beautiful set design. If the level of difficulty could be adjusted for different types of groups that would be great.
🏹 TAKE A SHOT?
If you enjoy immersive room designs and are a horror fan, get a group of brave souls together and give this room a try. Our recommended size for this room is 2-4 people. This is our second time back at Number One Escape Room. Red Riding Hood was one of our very first rooms when we started playing escape rooms and we loved it. We hope to return to try their more challenging rooms in the near future as they currently have 7 rooms to choose from.
Match the head.
