Happy New Year everyone!
I recently learned about a new escape room that is opening up in January (2018) called Xcape. They invited my team to come and try all of their rooms back to back between Christmas and New Year. The rooms hadn't opened to the public at that stage, so we were beta testing the rooms for them. They told us that we were the first English-speaking team to go through the rooms. We tried 5 of their 6 rooms on the day (their Prison Break room wasn't ready for us).
The first room we tried at Xcape was Akame, which was our 66th room in Australia (and our 53rd room in Sydney).
Akame is a 30 minute room. It is unlike any escape room that I have tried before. So different is it in fact that I wouldn't describe it as an escape room, but more of a jump scare room. These kind of scary rooms are cropping up in Sydney lately - some have heaps of puzzles and some are more about the jump scares. The purpose of this particular room is simple - it is aimed at scaring the crap out of you.
Themes: 6 currently
Cost: $23pp (or $33pp on weekends/evenings) (but we played at the kind invitation of Xcape)
