I was invited for a different kind of experience. It was to try out the fun live gaming experience at the Mystery Room. These games are meant to be played as a group. So off we went, the five of us.
The theme of the Mystery Room to escape the room in under 60 mins. The games available now to experience are Lockout, Cabin in the Woods, Abduction and Hurt Locker. We played lockout which was medium in the difficulty level. This room consists of a jailors desk complete with props (cap, uniform, photos) We will come to the significance of that later. The room also had a jail. The reason I do not have photos of this room will also become clear
So after signing the forms, we enter this area lit by red lights which already starts giving off a creepy experience. After keeping the valuables and cell phones in the locker provided (yeah no calls for help in this time 😀 ) we were told about the rules of the game and using the props provided.
Three of our group was made to wear handcuffs before we were all locked in the cell and the key thrown away (only in the literal sense). Once the timer started we had to look around and start figuring out the clues provided. Another reason mobile phones were not allowed and I put photos. The room is filled with clues. Some very subtle and some so in your face that you miss. You are proved two lifelines if you hit a cul-de-sac and cant proceed further. Checking into FB gave us two more lifelines so make sure you do check in !!
There is continuous moderation by an admin who is connected by a CCTV so the entire experience is safe and fun. (yeah you won’t be left without water and food although you wish they would if you don’t finish he game 😉 )
The puzzles really make you use your grey cells and is very stimulating. It involves a great team effort so its good for friends, family and corporate companies for team bonding. There are clues provided by the admin if u r in the right track but unsure to proceed. There is also an option to buy extra time. Rs. 500 gets you 15 mins. After 4 lifelines are used and crosses the stipulated time, game comes to an unsuccessful end unless u want to add extra time. Some of the clues provided are in the poems on the wall which lead to answers to open the numbered locks which hides other clues. Go ahead and unlock those grey “cells” !!
All in all playing in the Mystery Room was a great experience. We finished the game in 59 mins !! With the advent of so many social media platforms and virtual experience, we have become jaded. The human connection and interaction is getting lost and these experiences help us connect and share at a personal level. It is also a great de-stresser for corporate employees again too jaded by their monotonous activities.
Since we completed in under 60 mins we were given Certified Genius Badges !! Yeah we are inteligent when we really need to be
