My first trip to Andorra! And probably the last, there’s practically nothing to do there.

This was the second room that we played in that facility (the first one will be discussed separately).

We are stuck in a cabin during an avalanche, and need to find our way to safety.

The room is, pun slightly intended, very cool. A lot of thought was put behind every step of the experience, and there’s logic behind every aspect of the room, and a justification for its existence.

Some of the visual aspects are absolutely stunning, using a couple of gimmicks that I adore in escape rooms, and every time I see them I get extremely happy.

While most of the puzzles weren’t something to write home about, the general experience is great, and has a very subtle, but great, story line. That being said, pro tip: It is quite easy to get hurt in the exit of the room, if you are as stupid as I am. The game master had plasters etc ready, so it seems I wasn’t the first one to do something extremely obvious and stupid!
