“Canadian pirates have seized your old cargo ship on a voyage across the Mighty Niagara River. After stealing the goods, the pirates abandon ship and send you barreling towards Niagara Falls. You have exactly 60 minutes to escape before you go OVER THE FALLS.”
|Game experience: EXCELLENT|
|A fantastic game that might well have the best decor I’ve ever seen – if there were not two other rooms of similar quality at the same venue! A must-play for all escape room enthusiasts, but also a good introduction for beginners thanks to unlimited hints.|
|Fantastic decor, a great attention was given to every detail.
A very large multi-rooms space.
A smart use of technology makes you feel you are on board a real boat.
A thrilling music.
The water-based wahoo effect!
Very realistic wood-based “rust”.
|Very good parallelization of the puzzles.
An emphasis on the fun to play rather than on the competition, thanks to a large number of puzzles and unlimited hints.
|Friendly host, attentive to any feedback.
It is difficult to understand the registered voice (but it’s not necessary for the game, as hints are given on screen).
Performance: Our team of 4 players (1 experienced, 3 beginners) escaped in 59 minutes (that was a close one!), having used about 5 hints.
At the same venue: All three games are excellent and have awesome decor: play Body Collectors for horror, Over the Falls for adventure, and The Hangover for humor. Body Collectors is the most search-heavy, and The Hangover is the least. The decors at Over the Falls and Body Collectors have the same kind of rusty appearance (with a much more gloomy atmosphere at Body Collectors), whereas the one at The Hangover has a well-polished, fancy look.
