📖 THE STORY
A mad man is set to destroy London with a runaway train. He has left many puzzles for you to solve. Will you be able to stop his evil plan in 60 minutes with just the two of you?
🎯 HIT THE BULLSEYE
Great concept developed from the local historic stories.
Puzzles were fun and had a good amount of variations.
Good use of the small spaces.
Interesting way of “transforming” a new space.
🧩 MISSED THE MARK
Some props felt like it needed updating.
The last puzzle was broken by a previous group, so we didn’t get to see the full effect on the ending and was puzzled by how we got out.
The flow was a bit off in the latter part of the room as we had discovered something too early and had to be told by the game master to not go through it because it’s a “trap”.
Clue system could have been better executed as it felt too blunt at times with the hints given.
The headset did feel a bit cumbersome during the game play. Perhaps another way for communicating with headquarters could be implemented?
🏹 TAKE A SHOT?
This room felt pretty linear to us. It was the first time we saw something that we could solve but was stopped by the game master and told not to follow the order and do another puzzle first. People with good memory and observation would advance quickly in this room. If you are good at mathematics that would also help although you will always have your game master to assist you if that’s not your cup of tea. This could be a fun date room for two people.
