We are a team of ghost hunters called in to further investigate the paranormal activity observed in the mansion where the Hongson family, a mother with her three children, once lived. We are not afraid of the myths and rumors which talk about the priests, exorcists and other ghost hunters who are said to have entered the house and have since disappeared without a trace.

Upon entering the mansion, and on the way to the second floor where our mission is to begin, we get a premonition of what to expect here. It doesn’t look very inviting. At the top we stand in front of a strong metal grille, which is secured with a chain and a padlock. Are we really in the right place?

The introduction to the game is pretty well done and gets us into the story very quickly. The gloomy atmosphere, noises, loud sound effects and some jumpscares cause stress and let the adrenaline level rise steadily. The ghosts of the house keep us awake and never let us rest.

The difficulty of the themed puzzles is from easy to moderate, but the external circumstances make it difficult to think and act.

When booking, you can choose between two different modes. With or without actors. In the variant with actors, you can choose between with or without physical contact. We ordered, of course, „with everything“. The actors’ movements, their costumes, the frequency of their appearances were consistent. There was physical contact!

The end was a bit abrupt for me and not entirely satisfactory. But, if I correctly interpret the hints in the subsequent, very nice conversation with the staff, there could be a sequel soon – or something completely new. Anyway, we are ready for it!Even if Conjuring is advertised for up to 6 people, I would only recommend it for 3 (or a maximum of 4) players.
