Room Escape Southend – Down the Rabbit Hole – 7/10 – *Room closed, company open*
Some of the residents of Wonderland have been infected with a virus. Can you find the cure before you yourself get infected?
Played – May 2017
When you first arrive the Queen of Hearts greets you and it turns out she’s actually a lot nicer than you’d think. She gives you the lowdown and takes you down in to Wonderland via a rabbit hole. It’s pretty clever the way they have decorated the room. You then meet another character from Wonderland and soon you’re off working on puzzles.
There is a variety of puzzles although not as many as some games but you do have the added complication of the infected residents who will get right in your way. These are mainly mental puzzles with a little observation and physical thrown in. A is a bit of a Wonderland expert and that knowledge came in pretty handy although is not necessary, you can find the info during the game.
At the end you climb back out of the rabbit hole and save Wonderland, yay!
Not good for anyone who has epilepsy or certain fears – would recommend giving them a call first to check.
Teams of 3-4 would be ideal but other numbers still work.
