This room appeared out of the blue in the TERPECA last year, probably thanks to high ratings of Spanish players, as its location in the outskirts of Murcia was not particularly likely to be a magnet for international enthusiasts and this year it has managed to stay among the winners after a few international visitors like ourselves paid a visit.

While there are not many other top-notch rooms directly in Murcia, it is within reach from Valencia by car and many other rooms are interesting in other locations, such as Alicante and Elche, so we made an extra detour to play this room when we were in the region, with the added advantage that we had a really great lunch in a nearby restaurant (sorry Lee, it was tasty meat and the cheesecake was definitely not vegan).

Culinary comment aside, the detour was well worth it, as it was a really good game. Of course the topic is not very original, as there are plenty of temples of Egyptian or Latinamerican origin in the escape room world, however quality diverges a lot and luckily this game belongs to the top of their type and will be the delight of the enthusiasts that love this kind of games.

Already the lobby, to call it somehow, provides for a nice transition into the game and gives a foretaste of the nice set that will be found inside and which is one of the critical factors in this kind of rooms.

Maybe the best recommendation for this room is its high ranking considering that in Spain there are numerous excellent temple/tomb rooms. Other than the realistic decoration, I particularly enjoyed the riddles, which are to a large extent non-linear.
Definitely a room to include if you are in the region.
