Welcome to the Hotel California… Such a lovely place
This room really packs a punch and is hugely enjoyable. The mix of murder mystery and loot finding is a great combination. Some rooms of this style can get a little similar however this certainly breaks the mould.
There is a lot to solve and you are really hit when you first walk in by literally knowing where to start. Its quite easy to see what you have got to do, however doing it is a different matter! A real great mix of short punchy puzzles and longer fact finding missions make this a great challenge, which is not only well themed, but also fast paced.
Would I recommend this room?
Yes, certainly. The variation of challenges, the pace of the game and the theme add up to a great experience.
Who would I recommend it to?
Anyone! Although the room would be challenging for newcomers, everything is achievable if you set your mind to it.
How many players would I recommend?
4 would be a great number in this room.
Although not huge in size, the puzzles often need more than 1 brain!
Suitable for Children?
Yes.. Although I would suggest slightly older children as the puzzles can be taxing!
