New Escape Rooms in Manly - Escape Room Eight
I recently learned that a new escape room business is opening soon in Manly.
They are called Room Eight Escape Rooms. They are a stand-alone business that plans to have 3 rooms ultimately, of varying levels of difficulty. Their room summaries are as follows:
Indisposed (Escape the Aussie Dunny)
Trapped in the outhouse of famous, if somewhat deranged Aussie celebrity Huge Axeman, can you free yourself before the Axeman returns. In an Escape Room like no other, you'll need to think and act quickly as a team to solve puzzles and challenges as the clock ticks down. Even if you can escape the Dunny, you'll still need to survive the Australian wild, and contend with an array of deadly Australian fauna.
Entombed (The Disappearance of Dr. Smith)
Amidst the dry arid deserts of Egypt a lone building stands. It was once the study of renowned archaeologist Atlanta Smith, who has been missing and presumed dead for several months, in his quest for the treasure of Khufu. Your search for answers has taken a turn for the worst, and you're going to need to draw on all your investigative nous and powers of deduction to solve this mystery, evade an ancient curse and escape this room alive...
Targeted (Assassin HQ)
On your way up to the Yum Cha restaurant on level 8 of an inner city skyrise, a power surge has resulted in your elevator stopping at level 7 1/2. Home to Sydney's most elite hired killers - Assassins Anonymous. You've got to scour the room and look for clues to an alternative exit, then get the heck out before you're discovered and added to their "to do" list.
Room Eight are also trying to differentiate their business by having multi-lingual rooms (which I'm sure tourists will appreciate, as well as some locals).
They hope to open up later this month with at least one and maybe 2 rooms.
I hope to get out their soon to check out their rooms and as always, I'll report back here once I have with a review.
