The Amulet of Zorro
LOCKEDup in Bucharest offers four different Escape Games at two locations. We played three of them. The fourth room, Blacklist, was unfortunately “under construction”.
“The Amulet of Zorro” was our first game in Bucharest. It is a refreshingly new theme for an Escape Adventure. Zorro, the masked folk hero, is about to be unmasked. The authorities are hot on his trail and already on their way to the secret hideout of his organisation. High time, then, to get the incriminating evidence, and first and foremost was to get Zorros golden medallion, and get it to safety.
The premises are rather compact and best suited for 2-3 people. The game is (almost) entirely automated, and has some original puzzles that also fit the theme well. Player feedback when tasks were solved was consistently satisfactory. The soundtrack during the game was coherent and not at all too loud or annoying. A thoroughly successful introduction to our Bucharest trip.
