THEME: Mr Copplestone’s time machine has broken. You must fix it and save him, and yourselves, from being lost in time forever!
Elaine briefed us fully the back story to Curious Encounters and we then entered Mr Copplestone’s Curiosity Shoppe. Wow! The shop and theme are phenomenal. The attention to detail and props in this room are fantastic. We got some puzzles done straight away and had to think about others. The puzzles were cleverly done and were mostly linear. All of us got involved and most puzzles were done in a group of two or three. There was always something for us all to be working on or searching for. I don’t want to say too much about this room except that anyone who enjoys escape rooms should make an effort to do this one, it is amazing! We loved this room, and it was my personal favourite of the four we did at Escape Quest.
ESCAPE TIME: 45.58 (a new record!)
BEST BIT: All of it…the entire room…it was fantastic!
SUMMARY: This is a fabulous room and has been developed with a lot of care and attention to the detail in the props and the puzzles. The story is good, the game play is clear and it is an all round superb room.
