📖 THE STORY
There’s a rumor that’s been going around saying that the fortune teller - “Maid of Mystery” hid a treasure within Luna Park. We only have an hour before the park closes to find the treasure!
🎯 HIT THE BULLSEYE
The room was full of vibrant colors. Suddenly we were young kids again and wanted to play with everything that we saw. The set design reminded me of a fun carnival.
Most of the items were bolted down (if not used) which cleared away any red herrings.
Music was a great add-on to the fun atmosphere in the room.
Props used were all in line with the story setting.
🧩 MISSED THE MARK
Didn’t really feel much of a story line through the puzzles. It would be great to incorporate a bit more of that within the puzzles themselves.
Most of the puzzle elements felt a bit too direct and revealing with the answers. We actually felt like this room is much easier in comparison to the other rooms we’ve tried there.
Would have been nice to see some implementations of real carnival games in there that we can “play” to receive an “award”.
There was a confusing component in the latter part of the gameplay that we thought had something to do with a puzzle because of the coordination but it didn’t.
The ending could have had a bit more of a “wow” moment for the treasure reveal.
🏹 TAKE A SHOT?
If you like carnivals, lights, and games then you’ll love this room. The puzzles are straight forward so it’s easily doable with 2 people. The room size is quite spacious so if you want to bring a team with you, you’ll be able to separately conquer some puzzles simultaneously.
