I am not going to tell you what puzzles and riddles we solved or left unsolved, however I can say that we used number, colour and morse codes to solve some of the clues and searched for other clues with uv-torches etc. We put together a huge world map puzzle and saw plenty of pictures of naked women. And at the end the final task was to play a game on an ipad.
I am not going to tell you more in detail what we did, how and why. You have to experience it yourself! But I can tell you that it was a very interesting, intriguing and challenging experience in many aspects! You really need to use your wits, creativity as well as logical and critical thinking in order to escape. The game also calls for observation, teamwork and communication skills. It definitely enhances your ability to work under pressure as the clock is ticking. You surely get an adrenaline rush while fighting against the clock. My best advise for the game is to think outside the box. Big time! Different types of talents and individuals are needed to solve the puzzles. In my opinion, the more heterogeneous your team is the better you will succeed, and you should use each player’s strengths to accomplish the mutual goal. The game is for the mind only, so no physical strength, agility or courage is needed or allowed. There is nothing scary or dangerous. You really have to give it a try. It is such great fun! One question remains to be answered: Did we manage to exit the room before the bomb exploded? No, we did not. But we are still alive! We simply did not understand what was the purpose of the game on the ipad and how to play it. As a whole the game was very difficult and we would have not made it even that far without hints from the staff via a walkie-talkie. Statistics tell the truth: the game is very difficult as only 1 % of the players manage to exit the room without any hints from the staff. 30 % exit with hints from the staff. And the rest of us fail, just like we did. But nevertheless, we felt like winners as it was such an amazing experience!
