Continuing my report of my writing retreat cruise (read #1 here).
As I said last time, there were two highlights from my day in Perth. After lunch we went to an Escape Room. I’ve always wanted to do one of these (I do write mysteries after all) so I was very excited.
Our mission was:
Can you graduate from the Academy of the Australian Secret Services with your final mission?https://escapehunt.com/au/perth/games/spy-mission/
You have been through years of spy training at the Academy of the Australian Secret Services. Now, it’s time for their final test. You must enter the apartment of the world’s most elusive hacker and recover secret government documents to graduate the academy. Only the best will pass the test.
Turns out, this room happened to be the hardest of them all and 3 of the 4 of us were first timers to an escape room. Needless to say, we didn’t escape the room in time – we were about 3 minutes over 🙁 All things considered, though, I think we did really well.
We got stuck on about the second task. We were so close but didn’t quite get there. Right idea, just over-analysing it. Once we got going from that we did pretty well – except for the fact the timer ran out before we got out of course 😉
I had a blast and will definitely be doing this again when covid lets us back out of the house.
Have you ever done an escape room (or wanted to)?
