    • I thought I’d chime in with my 0.02AUD. I was also on the winning scientists team in Dr Irvov’s labratory.

      The major feature under discussion/playtesting is the battle mode, where as discussed above, as soon as one team completes the room, the game is over for the other team. After some reflection, I’m not sold on the idea of battle mode. The winning team does get a slightly better experience, but for the losing team, it ends up with there being puzzles that you will never get to experience the joy of solving.

      I have a pet theory that the ideal number of people to have in an escape room is the minimum number of people for which your team will escape. Which is of course a number that you don’t know ahead of time, and depends on how parallelisable the structure of the room is. This room takes 2-6 people – with 2 it would be very difficult to escape and should only be attempted by the best hunters. With 5-6 it is clearly very doable/easy, as evidenced by our time.

      I don’t think I can add too much to the review above. This is very clearly the best escape room I’ve experienced in Brisbane so far (having done Missing Missy at Solve and Unlock, and Bomb at Government House at Escape Hunt), which gives me confidence in returning for their other rooms.

      rating: A.

  • Hooray! One of our number let Exitus know about the spoilers in their photos and they fixed them, so I was able to update the blog with our victory photo.

  • I just noticed that in the photos Exitus takes for the “Forensic” room they actually post a major spoiler that gives away a significant puzzle. As a result, I will NOT be posting the photo of our group to this review, but I will put it on the meetup page.

    • Wow that was spot on to how i felt about the room and clues and teamwork etc. It was a highly satisfying experience to say the least, challenging, fun and I love CSI type things so it added to that geek factor. 🙂 Awesome review and many thanks!

    Not that I’m even remotely involved in organising the cinema trips…

    Also… cineplex is cheaper.

    The one potential problem we face with southbank cinemas is that it is ALWAYS full for the kinds of films we see and the times we see them, which means prebooking is a necessity and we have to arrive very early to get decent seats as a group.

    I’m also hesitant when it comes to 3D films in cinema 5, as I’m not against…[Read more]

    • As a newbie to this I found The Garden a fantastic starter room to learn how it all works and what types of puzzles are used. The anal-yst and ocd in me wants to point out that we got the code straight away, we were just inputting it into the wrong mechanism 🙂 Huge thanks to Andrew for organising this meetup.

    • Wonderful review, its great to hear they have improved from Butcher’s Burrow. Lookng forward to coming one soon as I had alot of fun at the escape room we went to last year ☺
