I really like Lost. I enjoyed it from the first moment to the last, including its debatable end. So I of course got excited when I realized that we are about to play a Lost room on our trip.

Let’s start with the positive – the room is great for fans of the show. Many many references to the show, its story, various easter eggs, etc.

However, the main issue with the show Lost is that the parts of it that are easiest and most fitting to translate into an escape room aren’t necessarily the most crazy parts. While the room had some really cool and thematic puzzles, and transitioned very nicely along its story, I do feel like people who haven’t watched the show may find the general theme slightly less exciting, although I may be, of course, as always, 108% wrong.
