The season is changing over here and the schools are on break… which means that there are a heap of activities on all over town. Our gang got to visit the Clue Room, in Tyger Valley Centre, on Friday and for a solid hour we were locked in battle, trying to escape. The Clue Room is a real live game where players are given a mystery to uncover. Players enter a room, which is “dressed up” to look like a regular room. Inside the room there are a whole lot of clues to uncover, and a whole lot of clues to confuse you… but everything you need to solve the puzzle is right there for you to discover. All you need are your wits.
Clue Room is based on a popular escape game, where up to six people are placed in a room filled with clues and given a mystery to solve. Here are the gang eagerly awaiting their mystery… of course a lot of the items in the room are not actually clues and a lot of the clues are completely hidden from sight. There is a camera watching you figure things out and from time to time the masters of the mystery will drop you a hint… gotta say we needed a few!!!
There are two rooms to choose from: the Hospital Room, which is suitable for folk aged 5 and up… this is the mystery we solved; and the Living Room is suitable for 13 years and older. In our mystery… we had an hour to figure out what had happened to pop star, Maxi May.
In we went and searched and puzzled, rearranged and puzzled some more… working together was the way to go. Because of the time constraint we were constantly under pressure and it was interesting to see that we all dashed around trying to figure things out using our strengths… you definitely need all the players to solve the mystery.
And weren’t we just a little bit thrilled to get out with only 18 seconds to go…
This is definitely something fun to do on a wintry day. And all the details are here… on the Tyger Valley Centre Website.
