Sleuthing Santa: A naughty elf has stolen toys and you have to help Santa find the toys in time to deliver the eager children awaiting them on Christmas morning.
Pros: Although Christmas was over a week ago and the holiday spirit had long left us, we loved the festive theme of this room. Some eggnog and holiday music could have made this even more enjoyable (wishful thinking). Still we enthusiastically embarked on our puzzle solving tasks. The game flowed smoothly with puzzles themed to the storyline. We worked our way through the rooms with no hints.
Cons: We were grouped with a family of six who was not too happy to see strangers added to their party. We understand that this is standard operating practice at most places but it really does not make for the best game play experience. The family complained but there was no effort to accommodate their concern. They were able to escape the room do in large part to our help and left happy nonetheless. However, everyone felt a little cheated out of the full experience. We recommend private bookings become the new standard practice at all escape rooms unless groups agree in advance to be paired up with others.
