The Room – The Maze: Curse of the Dragon:
Description (from the company website): In this adventure you and your group need navigate a magical forest maze to break the evil curse that was put on the woods by a dark wizard. Ages ago 5 elders met at Elders Rock and swore an oath to protect forest kingdom, the Mother Dragon, and her eggs. The 5 elders founded the 5 Great Houses of the kingdom, which still live on. For a long time there was peace an prosperity. However, that all changed when an outsider from a far away land, later to be revealed as a dark wizard, stole the Mother Dragon’s 3 eggs from Dragon’s Keep and enchanted the Mother Dragon with an evil curse. Now the dark wizard uses his enchanted dragon for evil purposes. To save the kingdom you need to find the 3 dragon eggs to break the curse put on the Mother Dragon. The eggs have been hidden and locked up throughout the kingdom. To find the dragon eggs you and your team will have 1 hour to navigate a giant 80 foot x 40 foot maze built in the woods, crack codes, unlock doors, and escape before time runs out. Along the way you will visit important locations such as Dragon’s Keep, Elders Rock, Devil’s Mouth Cave, and the Enchanted Forest. Are you up for the challenge?
Difficulty (1-10): Medium
Time Limit: 60 minutes
Party Size: 2-10
Staging Area: The “lobby” is a dirt parking lot outside a storage container that they tell you to look for. Keep in mind that the instructions in the email they send you are inaccurate at best (admitted by our GM); just follow the signs for “Escape Woods” on the trees.
Metro Access/Parking: drive Drive DRIVE. No public transport out this way.
This is the video we took before we entered the room:
Yeah, nope. We got out of the car and they kinda just started talking so I didn’t have a chance.
This is the video we took just after we completed the room:
Yep, I suck. We ran off after taking the picture because it was entirely too buggy outside and I forgot to do a video later that day.
Description of the room: we knew the room was outside and a maze, but that was about it. Oh, and that there were dragon eggs.
Understanding of the Mission: find the 3 dragon eggs to put an end to the curse.
Did We Escape: Yes
Time Remaining: Something like 10 minutes; I don’t remember what we were told but based on the time notifications we got over the walkies, sounds right.
Our Suggested Party Size: We were 5. There’s plenty of room for 10 (the room max), but there’s not going to be enough for 10 people to do. I’d say 4-6 max.
Did the room challenge the entire team? No
Members of our team (other than the ERG): Steph, Jolene, Liam, Logan
Worth the time and money? No
Where to Eat/Drink Before/After:
- We went home and had pizza after.
