People have been making a bunch of noise about Escape Rooms lately, so when Plumpy Thimble asked if I wanted to go on a triple date to Countdown Escape Rooms up in Abbotsford, I jumped at the chance. If you have never done an Escape Room, and you like puzzles, you definitely should give one a try.
Our room was themed like an Egyptian tomb. Which was pretty cool, even if the application of the theme was a little uneven. The act of solving the room: rummaging around looking for clues, trying to make the logical leaps required to apply those clues, and just feeling the pressure of the clock, was a good time.
I don’t know if this is something I would do all the time, but it is a unique experience, and one well worth the $15. There are a lot of Escape Rooms around these days, so finding one nearby shouldn’t be an issue, but Countdown Escape Rooms was pretty good. Even if for some reason their Egyptian tombs feature constellations based on Greek mythology.
