Let’s go for a romp through the coin laden vaults of Scrooge McDuck. Our rich uncle fears thieves are coming, and we must save his most valuable treasure.
Yes, it’s a cartoony theme, and I like that it holds true to this theme. All the decorations, even the puzzles maintain the wacky feeling of the comic books. It’s bright, colourful, and lots of fun. I’m thankful our host allowed us to play that day, before this room’s official opening.
This small room has many puzzles packed into it, with most of the decoration also integrated into the puzzles. It has a wonderful variety of classic puzzle design, focusing mostly on associations and perception. It’s got a few locks, but the giant one is wonderful. Overall, most of the puzzles are on the easy, frustration-free side. Except perhaps, one puzzle which could vary depending on one’s agility. We breezed through the room, though I suspect beginners might need a few hints.
The room itself is located inside an old bank vault, with the antique giant door providing an added touch.
Der Geldspeicher is a good escape room. I gladly recommend it, for both beginners and experienced escapers alike — though perhaps limited to teams of 2-3, given the size. The room has a pleasing blend of atmosphere and puzzles, and void of any nonsense. Simply put, it’s fun.
