Escaparium Sherbrooke: The Curse of the Jade Skull

“Your most recent studies have taken you to the Huitzilopochtli Temple, where the famous Jade Skull is located. According to the legend, the Jade Skull is a symbol of immortality, courage and power.

Will you be able to succeed where all have failed? If you have not left the Temple in 60 minutes, with the Jade Skull in hand, you will never leave the Temple. Your body and soul will belong to the Gods forever.”

Game experience: VERY GOOD
Immersion   Puzzles   Hosting
4,5 stars   4,5 stars   4,0 stars

A very fun Indiana Jones-inspired room with magical effects!

Immersion 4,5 stars
  • A great Indiana Jones-inspired atmosphere with beautiful props and temple elements.
  • The ominous voice of the God and the musical atmosphere.
  • Before COVID, there used to be a very immersive floor – let’s hope they re-install it soon!
  • Except one padlock, all mechanisms seem to be RFID-based and express well the magic of the place.
Puzzles 4,5 stars
  • A good balance of puzzles and searching.
  • A puzzle parallel structure that should make sure to keep everyone busy in the room.
  • The room may be a bit short and could have one or two more puzzles.
Hosting 4,0 stars
  • A much more energetic and friendly hosting than we had the day before when playing The Legend of the Three Dragons.

Performance: Our team of 2 experienced players escaped the room without any hint in 42’40’’.

Difficulty: This game is not too difficult, but will still be interesting and challenging enough for experienced players.

At the same venue: This venue features the also good Legend of the Three Dragons. We had a slight preference for The Curse of the Jade Skull.

Elsewhere in the escape galaxy: Another very good escape game set in a temple in Quebec is Dendera’s Secret at Sauve Qui Peut at Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu (which is slightly easier).
