Hi! Hey, y’all!
Earlier tonight, we finally got to do something I had been wanting to do ever since I heard of them: we went through an escape room tonight! It was so much fun, and I’m so grateful for both AJA and my brother being willing to come with me and work it into busy schedules. It was totally worth a little schedule squeezing 😉 just to spend time with ACG. Seriously, it was pretty serendipitous how today fell together, which made it all the more exciting, fun, and perfect.
Absolutely! We had three “theme” options for the room, and we (read as: I) chose the one called “Antidote,” which is–as you might have guessed—a rampant virus with a lost cure. (NGL when I see the word “antidote” (or hear it) I think about Egypt? Idk… ) It was our job to find the antidote before the time ran out. This was only moderately stressful. No one screamed at each other in anger, but we did raise our voices in fear a few times. One big takeaway from the medical science world: there are a lot of coded doorways and cabinets. We didn’t scream, and I don’t even really remember raising our voices. And, yes, there are a TON of cypher locks, cabinets, and random lab supplies all over the place. There was also an alien, but that’s a different experiment.
The most important question to ask, though, is if we won or not. It was a fear of losing 2/3’s of the party had with only ACG confident in our abilities. Honestly, if y’all knew the team and skillset I was working with between AJA and my brother, you’d be confident, too.
*snort* @) Mmmm I was scared because our only abstract thinking comes from ACG usually. 😉 But ultimately… *dun dun duhhhhhh*
WE FOUND THE ANTIDOTE!!! With 13 minutes to spare! It was amazing, and we got some really cool bracelets and a very fun picture out of the deal. Uh huh! It was great!
All in all: I think this whole adventure was a 10/10 and now we are eager to do it again sometime. 🙂 Agreed, and to try the other room options maybe, challenge ourselves with the more difficult rooms and test our teamwork.
Keep your key ring close and your puzzles closer! ❤ ;P 🙂 😀 😉 O.o
Drive safely ❤
