Rundle Mall, Thu 2 Mar.
The starting concept of the Adventure Rooms was a brain child of a physics master in Switzerland and, as mentioned by our lovely guide during our session, perhaps the physic classes just weren’t interesting enough so the master created puzzles and riddles to make the classes more enjoyable, and despite the success of Adventure Rooms all across the world, still chooses to teach his classes.
I started my time in ‘GAOL’ with quite a good cell mate as we needed to work together to complete mini challenges to find the ‘key’ or code to help us move on to the next challenge. My cell mate (who happened to be my husband) and I learnt that, as with all things, communication is the real key. We were able to while away an hour with laughter, frustration and elation at finally getting through each mini challenge and on to the next.
Each game allows for up to seven people to be locked up at the same time competing against the clock, or you can even have two teams of people competing against each other, which would make for an awesome team building exercise for any group of people, small or large.
I’m pleased to say we got further than we thought we would but not so pleased to admit that we didn’t make it all the way out. We were advised that only 30% of people worldwide can do that, and when it is just the two of you trying, that percentage is even smaller.
Adventure Rooms are not just here for the Fringe, but are a permanent fixture in Adelaide, which is a great thing. Get along and take your friends or maybe some frenemies.
Adventure Rooms Adelaide – Gaol Break continues at Rundle Mall, at various times, until Thu 16 Mar.
