Team: Amy & Ian
“The legend has it that anyone who stays longer than One Hour in this spooky Manor house simply disappears. Follow the footsteps of a world leading demonologist to uncover the secrets of the house and Exorcise the demons. Do not outstay your welcome.”
Emergency Exit Escape Rooms certainly don’t do things by halves… this room was gorgeous.
Emergency Exit Escape Rooms really deliver immersion, theme and story throughout their games, and Exorcist is no exception, they have a definite stamp in their theme and execution. They really put you in a story for an hour and whisk you to another world!
The room is large and clean. The lighting does change throughout the game, there are some moments of darkness, but this doesn’t even affect game play.
Brilliant design, brilliant execution.
The game was strictly linear, and had a pace about it that a lot of rooms don’t have, the puzzles, locks and keys kept flowing all throughout the game and there wasn’t a moment of down time (except when we missed a couple of details, this was OUR fault not game design) – There is a broad range of puzzles, code breaking, word, observation, physical.
This game contained a wonderful standout puzzle, which when all the pieces come together is such a joy and so much fun!
Every puzzle in the room is perfectly in theme and solvable, with lovely Ah-ha moments for each puzzle, they’re all so much fun to solve!
Any group size is great for this room, as it’s about being put into a real life Movie for an hour… the puzzles are great but the story, theme and immersion take the crown in this room!
Clues were delivered via a disembodied voice… this can sometimes be a little hard to hear over the ambient sound in the room, but there is no problem with the clue being delivered twice if needs be!
Ronnie was our game host, (and the owner at Emergency Exit Escape Rooms) and his passion, & dedication are obvious, we could have chatted for hours, and hours, and hours… They ran our game brilliantly, giving us clues when we asked, but the beauty of the room meant we only needed 2 nudges in the right direction.
Did we escape?
Yes, in about 47 minutes!
