Twas’ the night before Christmas, when all through the house, a creature was stirring, and definitely not a mouse. Can we save the holidays?
Saying this was a delightful room is an understatement. It held a coziness to match a pleasant Christmas eve. The decoration, style, and lighting, and I swear even the smell, come together to create an inviting atmosphere. I felt welcome in the wonderful holiday atmopshere. It made me want to pull up a chair by the fireplace, eat some cookies, and relax.
I mean, were it not for a certain menace trying to ruin it all! Trying not to spoil it, but this led to one of the best large-scale effects I’ve seen in an escape room.
It’s difficult to remember the puzzles as distinct from the environment — a testament to the design. From finding presents, to listening to music, to arranging books and setting dinner, there was a good mix of lovingly integrated puzzles.
Not yet translated to English, the game master would slip notes under the door as we needed them. I remember it more like receiving friendly Christmas mail. I hope they keep at least a few deliveries, maybe in pretty envelopes, as a pleasant touch.
Silent Night is a refreshing vision of an escape room. The theme is a wonderful diversion from the classics and deserves to be visited for that reason alone. It was a heartwarming Christmas gathering, and I have fond memories of it.
