“You are brave firefighters showing up for work like any other day. As you do your daily duties around the fire hall you get dispatched. This is not just any call, this is the call that firefighters will talk about for years to come. You must be prepared for what challenges you face because you are risking your life and the lives of others.”
|Game experience: VERY GOOD|
|A bipolar room: a (too) classical start leads later to a thrilling adventure involving exciting manipulations you will rarely have the chance to perform in an escape game!|
|A very large space extending in many directions.
A wahoo effect leading to a thrilling second part!
A not-so-impressive first part.
|Several very cool manipulations in the second part of the game that will make you feel like being part of a real rescue team!
Somewhat bland puzzles in the first part of the game.
|The gamemaster enters into the room to give hints.|
Performance: Our team of 4 experienced players escaped in 54 minutes, having used 1 hint.
Elsewhere in the escape galaxy: Although the puzzles during the first part of the game are reminiscent of many of the old-school escape rooms you can find out there, the second part is not really comparable to anything I’ve played elsewhere. You have to play it!
