📖 THE STORY
This escape room is based on the Luftwaffe attack on Britain back on August 18th, 1940. We are the only survivors of the first wave of the bombing and we must strategize how to mobilize our full force of RAF to save London and successful bomb the enemies. We have an hour before they will attack again!
🎯 HIT THE BULLSEYE
All the puzzles were unique in this room. They were all relevant to the storyline and very entertaining to solve.
The entire room was not linear so our group each had our glory moment to be proud of for solving a different puzzle. The great thing was that we still had a chance to come together for the end.
The “centerpiece” of the room was an impressive design.
The urgency was felt as game progressed, much like the story line.
Great mixture of combo locks and tech (only used at places that made sense).
Unusual way of “winning” the game.
Props used were all related to the timeline of the story.
Love the flow and the “flow tracking device”.
🧩 MISSED THE MARK
The hint system could be a bit off due the various number of puzzles being solved by different players at the same time. The game master’s camera may not be able to clearly see the status of all the puzzle solving at one time. Maybe create a laser pointer that can be controlled from the control room to point to the puzzle that’s being hinted on.
If only a bit more of a “wow” element could be added to the ending, this would have had a perfect finish!
🏹 TAKE A SHOT?
This is a great game to demonstrate that a room does not have to have an insane amount of tech or crazy movie set like set designs in order to be an awesome escape room. We felt immersed in the storyline and puzzles that none of the “fancy” additions mattered. If you love a challenge with tons of puzzles and want to test how you can work alone and/or with a team, you’ll truly enjoy this room.
Do not rush to “finish”. Make sure you double check everything before you decide to launch.
