Today, we came back to save our friend from the “Vampire” in the mysterious Castle Ravenloft. We must get the serum before midnight or else our friend who got bitten will turn into a vampire!
All the room sizes have been quite spacious at The Puzzle Parlour but this one felt like the largest one we’ve done there. Our recommended team size is 4-6 pending on experience. We had just the two of us that day and got out with time left on the clock. Right away, we felt like we entered an old castle from centuries ago. The lighting and décor gave that eerie feeling but no worries, there are no jump scares. We especially liked the way the clue system and the timer were designed in this room. It wasn’t a typical tv or counter which earned brownie points towards the immersion. We are not sure how we were able to skip one puzzle, but we did not retrieve one of the objects but was still able to finish the game. If this could be avoided somehow it could improve the game flow. We were also stuck on a word puzzle later as the wording seemed a bit confusing, but we were able to solve it using process of elimination. There was one other puzzle towards the end of the game that stumped us and we had to use a clue. But the solution felt like it didn’t have relevance to the storyline. Design-wise, the latter part of the room was on point as well. We liked the “wow” moments it gave us in terms of how different they were.
This was our favorite room at The Puzzle Parlour so far and since Halloween is right around the corner, it’s definitely an experience you do not want to miss. We still have one last room “The Surgery” that we haven’t tackled yet. If you have tried that room, let us know your thoughts!
