📖 THE STORY

You and your lover have been given the opportunity to spend a night in the Sultan's palace. You've long heard tales of three magic lamps hidden within the palace, each containing a genie. When brought together, the genies will each grant you one wish! While relaxing in the lap of luxury, be sure and take time to explore your environs in order to find the magic lamps, free the genies, accept your wishes, and perhaps even take a special, one-of-a-kind whirlwind trip!



🎯 HIT THE BULLSEYE

  • The moment we entered the Suite, we were swept away to a whole new world. Pictures and words can't do adequate justice to the depth and breadth of lighting, sounds, decor, and overall ambience. It truly must be experienced to be understood!

  • As we explored the room, we found the progression and variety of the activities contained within to be thoughtful and reflective of the path a perfect date night could take.

  • This is not an escape room, but something far more expansive and relationship-centered. Enthusiasts will find the puzzles to be relatively simple; the goal is not to expertly speed through the challenges, but instead to luxuriate in the beauty of an unfolding, unpredictable experience. ‘Approach the opportunities with intent and vigor' is an apt instruction from the visionary creator.

  • We have from time to time discussed our desire to either create or participate in an experience that was multi-dimensional (such as an airbnb containing hidden puzzles and secret compartments). This is that dream, but 1001 times greater due to the spectacular thematic design and the incorporation of romantic experiences that ranged from light-hearted to intimate.

  • When compared to the cost of similarly opulent luxury resorts and hotels, we feel that this unique experience provides fantastic value and is the ultimate extravagance for a special occasion. We recommend splurging on at least one of the add-ons, depending on your personalities and curiosities…

🧩 MISSED THE MARK

  • We stayed in "The Genie Suite" shortly after it opened. We did encounter a few technical glitches that are easily rectified, and we found the owner to be very communicative. He is clearly interested in crafting a flawless experience.

  • In an attempt to keep elements that are not central to the immersive environment to a minimum, instructions as to how to operate some of the components are a bit lacking. We found ourselves wondering 'how do we keep the mood lighting going?' and 'how does this work?'. We appreciate the creator's desire to minimize disruptions to the immersion but would've preferred to avoid googling how to turn certain things on or off. This is another easy fix that would further enhance this incredible experience.

🏹 TAKE A SHOT?

We love escape rooms and outdoor adventure challenges both for the joy of discovering unexpected surprises and for the connection and teamwork they foster. While theGenie Suite provides plenty of those moments, it also led us to create novel, personal, and intimate memories that we will talk about forever. We found the experience to be both extremely fun and one that allowed us to deepen our connection to one another. Prepare to smile and laugh, as well as to be vulnerable and passionate together. If you and your partner are ready for anything and looking for an unforgettable experience, Romantic Adventure Getaways has the evening of a lifetime waiting for you!


🔎 HINT

Take your time and let the adventure unfold. Rather than searching the room from top to bottom, follow the written clues as presented and allow the experience to guide you to the many a-ha moments that are hidden inside.

ℹ️ ADDITIONAL INFO

There is free on-street parking in front of the unassuming yet stately manor in which this experience (and others) is housed. The lobby is minimally decorated but with adequate signage to direct you to your suite, as well as subtle touches like a bell marked 'ring for kisses', next to a bowl of Hershey kisses. Genie Suite is on the second floor; you must climb stairs to reach the Suite, as well as to explore the many experiences hidden within. There's an award-winning restaurant within a few minutes' walk for a romantic dinner, and a nearby cafe for breakfast or lunch the following morning.
