Final Destination: The complete collapse of both engines had our plane hurling toward the ground. We had to figure out how to pilot the plane and save our lives.
Butcher's Basement: Tony's Butcher Shop hides a horrible secret. We had to locate our kidnapped friend before we ended up on the chopping block.
Back to the Mummy: Trapped in an ancient Egyptian tomb, our demise seemed eminent as the roof threatened to collapse on top of us.
Diamond Creed: A diamond, a guarded vault, a ticking clock. We felt like we had been here before, but stealing this diamond was no easy task.
Pros: We enjoyed the first game so much that we ended up playing four out of five of the games at Roundabout Canada. We tried to play the fifth game but they were not able to fit us in to their busy schedule. These were excellent high-quality games with fun, immersive set designs and storylines. Each game was quite challenging but not impossible to solve. We asked for hints when we needed them, which was more often than we would like to admit, but still enjoyed every minute of every game.
Cons: The hint process was cumbersome and cost us quite a bit of time. After calling the game master via a walkie-talkie we had to wait for the game master to enter the room and then catch them up on our progress before they were able to help us out. This happened each time we needed hints (several times per game). It seemed onerous for both players and employees. We hope they invest in cameras and audio equipment to monitor game progress. Computer monitors are our favorite way of receiving hints.
We loved Roundabout Canada. We will be back and that's a promise. We hope. When we can afford to visit Toronto again. Someday. Maybe. But trust us, Roundabout Canada will be our first stop!
