Temple of Doom: Our band of treasure hunters had to locate the ancient relic, the Golden Gato, before a competing band of treasure hunters beat us to the punch.
Pros: This room was nicely decorated with a clear storyline. Most of the puzzles made sense and were connected to the story. We did however, struggle with a few and required assistance. Minor changes to the puzzles could make them more straight-forward. We found ourselves spending lots of time searching, which can be a good thing if your group size is larger. We had a group of six and everyone had enough work to do.
Cons: This was a mostly multilinear room with lots of puzzles. Groups of no more than four or five are recommended. When it becomes linear, it can be difficult to keep everyone focused but the searching in the beginning is best for larger groups. The gamemasters did their job, but their friendly people-skills were lacking during the time we were there and they grumpily instructed us to re-read the rules a few times before our game began (even though we did read the rules and also told them we had been there before). We assumed they were having an off-day, since on previous visits we had a great encounter with other employees.
