Every now and again I come across a room where I just want the timer to stop so I can discover and enjoy the space, play with all the props, try on all the hats, and relive my childhood adventures. The Lost Island of the Voodoo Queen was one of those rooms for me and if I could have, I’d have happily played pirates in there for hours.

From the briefing where the story was told by a whole cast of characters, to the sheer joy of getting to step aboard a pirate ship I was grinning and bouncing around like a 10-year-old child on a sugar rush. More than once I left the guys to complete a puzzle as I off investigating the décor or a particularly intriguing prop.

But please don’t think that the puzzles weren’t interesting enough to hold my attention, they were wonderfully themed and clever… its just that I’m easily distracted! This adventure has a great variety of substantial puzzles that require teamwork and lots of communication, and all are beautifully themed and executed so they blend seamlessly into the environment.

We progressed through the adventure well, with only a few small nudges (mainly for search fails). At one point we managed to find an item before we solved the puzzle that would have led us to the aforementioned item, but this did not impact on our gameplay and we were soon at the end of our mission to find the “eternal loneliness” but with the mission almost complete we felt the presence of the Voodoo Queen.

This is a swashbuckling adventure that is great for players of all ages, it ticks the box for the puzzlers, the searchers, the adventurers, and the ones who just want to be Jack Sparrow! If you’re visiting Escaparium then make sure that you play The Lost Island of the Voodoo Queen, and I hope you also feel the urge to relive your youth and play pirates!
