Krampus: Someone has been kidnapping children. Could it be Krampus - the Christmas devil? Our investigation team had to locate the missing children in a creepy apartment building and escape with the evidence to convict the Krampus.
Spaceship: The rocket was set for take-off. We had to find our way out quick if we didn't want to get launched into outer space.
Tiki Palace: Our island paradise just turned into a volcanic nightmare. We had to find a way to appease the goddess of fire, before we became toast.
Pros: The set of Krampus was an odd mixture of Christmas and Halloween - perfect for a Krampus themed room. As the escapeologists favorite mythical beast, Krampus proved a worthy nemesis for us to defeat. The unique theme of this room made it all the more fun. The set design in the Tiki room was very immersive with lots of attention to detail that added to the experience of being at an island resort. The set of Spaceship was likewise impressive. The puzzles were both logical and challenging in all of the rooms. We escaped but with one hint or less in each room and not much time to spare. The puzzles generally fit the theme of the room. Our game masters were extremely helpful and responsive when called upon.
Cons: Playing in the dark is one of our least favorite ways to play. We wouldn't mind so much if there were enough flashlights to go around. Otherwise one of us is always left in the dark. This was only a problem in the Krampus room. We had some trouble in the Spaceship room finding all the clues and the logic of one of the puzzles was difficult to follow.
