Adrenaline – Labryinth

Adrenaline – Labyrinth
Location: Wigan
Game Date: 10/05/2019
Team: Amy & Ian


“A recent archeological discovery beneath the Palace of Knossos in Crete has revealed a maze of underground tunnels believed to be part of the great Labyrinth – home to the Minotaur from Greek mythology.

However, the sudden disappearance of the expedition’s lead archaeologist, Professor Ernest Longshaw has fuelled speculation that the Minotaur may be more than just a legend passed on from generation to generation for over 3000 years.

You and your team have been assigned to explore the last remaining passageways of the Labyrinth and reveal the true legend of the Minotaur.

Do you have the skill to navigate your way to the heart of the Labyrinth and the nerve to reveal its hidden secrets? Will you escape with knowledge and understanding or will you suffer the same fate as those before you, forever to be entombed within the Labyrinth?”

Labyrinth looked great, with an excellent variation in different scenarios within the game, each taking us deeper and deeper into the Labyrinth itself.
Theming was wonderful, with great attention to detail in the set and good immersion. The use of light and dark was brilliant, giving a unique twist on the game play and constantly surprising us at every turn.
There was enough interest in the set to create an immersive atmosphere, yet there were no distractions or red errings found within the set.
The space was large enough for the maximum team size once passed the first element in the game.

Game Play:
A game that swooped between open and linear quite seamlessly. Observation, math, word, logic, deduction, physical… all puzzle bases were covered to create a well rounded and interesting game, with something for everyone.
Puzzles were all on theme, and where ideas where used that were “standard” escape room fayre, the execution of the puzzle was unique and interesting.
Logic in the puzzles was exemplary, with there being no ambiguity. This gives a wonderful sense of confidence in the room and makes the game a pleasure to play.
Ah-ha moments came thick and fast with every puzzle, they were all a joy to solve!
Flow was good, with us moving fluidly from puzzle to puzzle with no sticky moments or game lead slow downs.
Signposting was just enough, elegantly done yet subtle and clever. Really nice, I was impressed by some signposting that was there, I didn’t spot but as soon as we solved the puzzle it became apparent and would have helped us had we got stuck.
A Really great game, with some thoughtful puzzles, some unique takes on classics and all round great gameplay.
