super fun, super expensive, meh.



that being said, i did try it and its worth trying and a ton of fun with friends... but the concept is to go multiple times to beat the game, and it's too expensive to go multiple times

$46+tax seems pretty expensive. But, it looks pretty cool.

If it were cheaper, I would probably feel more inclined to get a group together.

The $46 is for 2 people, so roughly $25 per person for 45 minutes. Sounds like a do it once thing. But I've heard its almost impossible to win on your first try, so you might feel ripped off?

I still don't fully understand what this is though. Is it like a real life version of notpr0n?

Yup. Apparently, they're really popular in Hong Kong

Day 1: I have tried every browser at my disposal and it blows my mind because the pics just refuse to load.

Day 2: I have concluded that I must have received some sort of virus through my email. I have canceled all email accounts and reinstalled Windows 7 Ultimate x64. Pics still not loading.

Day 3: I'm running out of options here. There must be some glitch in the Windows 7 Ultimate x64 Operating System. Thanks Bill Gates. Switching to MAC OS X maybe this will prove effective.

Day 4: MAC OS X installation complete. I'm drawing a blank here. Pics still won't load. After ruling out software errors, I am convinced that there must be some lingering mechanical failure in my system. I have placed an order to newegg for rush delivery of a new Western Digital Caviar Black HDD. Will give this another shot tomorrow.

Day 5: Harddrive has arrived and has been installed. To no avail, the pictures will not load. I have not shaved or showered in a week. My clothes stink. I have lost my job...all because these confounded pictures will not load. I'm done with the whole electronics thing. I will be moving into an Amish community and this will be my last update on this issue. Good luck and good riddance.

They are going for that Saw type experience and I can see it being fun if the puzzles were more interesting. Be prepared to fiddle with many luggage locks and combo locks.
I would honestly make the workers go through the room before you play because clues were missing, or just didnt work when I went with some friends. We used one of our "help clues", they came in and noticed the clue was missing and gave us an additional 10 min.

In our "scenario", We got a clue that said "2 years" for a 3 digit luggage lock. Every possible combo was tried, but nothing worked. There's no markings on the locks so they may have setup the wrong lock for the wrong clue or a douche before us may have changed the combo.

Fun was had, but it was 45 min of testing combinations on locks.

They should combine crossfit and airsoft

Timed events of course

1. Hostage rescue
Your wearing full gear around 30-40lbs of gear
Your objective is to guide your squad of 4 into the enemy building neutralizing all targets and carrying out 3 hostages (dummies ~100lbs each)
- You'll have to crawl under fencing
- Do sprints across kill boxes
- climb walls etc.
- every shot you get hit with is an additional 3 seconds to your overall squad time

Now that's fun and healthy!

I gave this a try today. The experience was not bad, but the puzzles were way too hard to solve. Some of the clues were way too random that most people wouldn't figure it out as clues unless they already know the solution to begin with.

Seems like all the puzzles revolve on finding the correct number for combination locks. It would have been nice if there was more to it than luggage locks. Such as usage of props. There didn't seem to be any "item finding" puzzles, but just more of looking around to find clues for lock combinations.

This being said, I only went once. So maybe the other scenarios could be designed differently.

One of the locks had the wrong combination. The digit was off by 1. We got an extra 10 mins for it, which was fine. That was about how long we were stuck on that lock. But seems like they should really make sure their puzzles aren't missing anything before they let the next group in.

Forgot about this thread, but gave it a try on Friday. You get 45 mimutes ans 2 hints every game (basically you can pay 2 win). And each *level* has a theme in which you solve combo locks and door locks to get to the next room. The hints are somewhat hard as there are plenty of distractions to keep you away from the real clue. Also, each room has hidden tokens in which you can redeem for prizes.
Spoilered for what I've figured out so far...
Spoiler!

it's pretty tough to get out the first time.
Went once (lost ship) but too costly to go back and try again.
