The Dark Altar

The Dark Altar










          • - Challenging yet not overly complicated
          • - Consistent theme helped tie all the puzzles together


          • - Not a fan of dark rooms, but it was part of the theme
          • - Not the room for you if you don't want to be startled (we did scream out loud at one point)

          Theme/Atmosphere: True to its name, the theme is ominous and eerie, but very well done and not over-the-top or excessive. The rooms are barely lit, so if you don’t like the dark, I would not suggest this room.

          Puzzles: I found that there were more puzzles that required logical thinking than most rooms. But everything was doable and made sense, it was just a matter of understanding the patterns around you, and the logic required for everything was quite consistent. Nothing is simple or obvious, but the challenges were lots of fun.

          Level of Difficulty: The puzzles weren’t exceptionally difficult, but it took time to figure out what the key to each puzzle was, hence I would agree that the Dark Altar is one of Omescape’s more difficult rooms due to the fact that there isn’t much time for trial and error if you want to escape within the hour.

          Overall Experience: I found our hour inside the room went by very quickly as there was never a dull moment. It was a lot of fun and even though we only escaped with minutes to spare, the puzzles were definitely challenging, but all very achievable with the right team of people.
