City Mazes – The Runner – 6.5/10
You probably don’t remember how you got here (or much at all) but your name should come back to you soon. This area that you are in now will be only be safe for a short while, but something is coming for us all….you have about 60 minutes before this place is crawling with them…..you must ESCAPE!
Played – March 2018
The theme of this room was interesting, it was well furnished and there was plenty of things to look at in the first instance. The puzzles again varied in difficulty and we enjoyed the inclusion of AR into the Room. However, as described in our review of Bamboozled you have no contact with the host and have to rely on getting clues by tapping the wall with an ipad. Now unfortunately we found one of the initial puzzles to be worded in a slightly misleading way, leaving us stuck for a period of time without being able to progress. We eventually used a buzzer by the door to call the host in and it turned out we were were doing the right thing it just didn’t work the way it should. We managed to escape in time but overall we preferred Bamboozled to The Runner. We would suggest a max of 4 players in this room as we were often crowded around the same thing.
