First off, I'll say what I enjoyed most about Supercell 117 at PanIQ Room:
- it was truly excellent. The design of the room is unlike anything else I have seen and is such a great concept (I would love to go into this more, but it would be too much of a spoiler so I won't - take it from me though, it's very clever);
- they have a really good mix of high-tech puzzles and low-tech puzzles, many of which are home made and original (which I always appreciate);
- every puzzle works perfectly, which is great (you would think that this should be a given, but after having done so many escape rooms, trust me when I say that not all rooms have puzzles that work properly - and there is nothing more annoying than puzzles that don't work or are ambiguous);
- the theming couldn't have been better - the props were all perfect, they made sense and really added to the overall feel of the room. Every single item in the room made sense - although they did have some red herrings, those red herrings still worked perfectly with the theme. I really appreciated that there was so much attention to detail with the props and theme;
- there were some puzzles and locks that we had never seen before and which we all really liked - it's always nice to see something new and different;
- we got out with 9 minutes and 32 seconds left on the clock, which shows that it is not an easy room by any means. I think some beginners would find this room challenging, which is a good thing in my honest opinion;
- the owners are very passionate about their rooms and it shows from the quality of the room.
As for some of the negatives with Supercell 117 at PanIQ Room, I have had a think about this over the past 2 days and my group of 4 who did the room have spoken about it since at length. None of us could come up with a single negative aspect of this room. Their price is around $35 per person, but I honestly think that this is very good value given the quality of the room and the amount of fun that we all had.
I can't fault Supercell 117. It was incredibly well designed and constructed and the theming and props are the best I have seen so far. My group enjoyed every minute of it and we really can't wait to try their Abandoned Military Bunker on the Rocks!
Try their room - I promise you will love it.
