Few weeks ago we had a visit from a ‘mystery shopper’, Toby, an escape room enthusiasts that played several dozens escape rooms around the world. He is a professional escape room review that came with his partner to play our room. You can read his whole review of our (and other rooms) on EscapeTheReview.Co.Uk.
Toby revealed his identity only after the whole game was done and we were almost saying goodbyes, so he received a true and unbiased experience. And he loved it!
We were very pleasantly surprised with with his review, as he loved the story, the puzzles and the immersion as well. He also gave us some improvements ideas, which are very welcome since we know we can always improve and make the experience even better. Here are some quotes from his review:
Dubrovnik’s first escape room draws on the city’s alter ego as King’s Landing in Game of Thrones, and while you don’t need any knowledge of the TV series or books, fans will enjoy the references to events in those.”
“… exploring the room uncovered a gleeful profusion of knick-knacks and decorations that suggests it was built with great enthusiasm for the theme and also a happy lack of budget control. At the same time, it’s clear that a lot of thought has gone into the placement of each clue and decoration, with proximity or commonality of design being used for subtle hinting.”
“Puzzles tend to involve multiple steps in a way that delays the gratification of solving them, but which adds to the eventual pay-off, and which gives everything a clear sense of progression as it builds to the end. The underlying puzzle design is skilful enough that it’s seamless, which is how it should be; and moreover it’s executed with a flair and style that left me positively gleeful about some of the puzzles before I’d even got to them. If you’re in the area, this is a room worth going out of your way to play.”
Toby rated our room 4/5 stars, tagging the article as “memorable puzzles”, which really makes us proud seeing that rooms we also played and really enjoyed got the same rating as us, or even lower.
We are happy to see that experienced players appreciate the passion, creativity and hard work we have put into building our puzzles. It’s exciting to know we have managed to create a fun, immersive and memorable escape room experience! It was a fun adventure for us, ultimately ending in living our dream, one happy team at a time!
