This was a fairly fun escape room!! I’m always looking for escape rooms with interesting puzzles and solid themes. The pyramid paradox was a fun way to spend the evening with family for sure!
Although I did enjoy the room, I wish that there was a bit more narrative as to WHY our group was in the pyramid. Like, what if instead of just finding ourselves randomly in the pyramid, we were a group of students searching for our missing professor, or a group of researchers following the trail of a missing archeologist? It could be that I’m very into narrative-driven rooms, but I think it does a lot for the room.
I’d definitely say that the highlight of the room was the unique puzzles, with some of them being tests I’ve never seen in rooms before; however they did cause some frustration. I appreciated that blank paper, pens, and a calculator were left in the room you to use, but I wouldn’t say the puzzles were super intuitive without a bit of nudging (though that could easily just be my group). I wish there had been more of an indicator of what puzzle should have been worked on next, or at least a confirmation at the beginning that the room was nonlinear.
Overall, my group got out with about a minute to spare (with lots of help from our GM) and we had fun! It was a unique room that I’d recommend to anyone who likes a challenge! Just remember that you will have to do math!! Haha
