Last week I tried Chinese Jewelry Box with a friend, which was recommended for beginners, and we had a blast. I didn't have a lot of experience with live escape games and wanted to try something easier. We finished this quest in a little bit under an hour, and we enjoyed it immensely. The way the rooms were decorated and the music playing in the background created the appropriate atmosphere and engaged all of our senses (besides smell), and we felt like we were indeed inside a video game. Almost every object we discovered in the rooms was meaningful, and the clues were relatively easy to find and use, although we did have to think about them. Overall, the staff was very friendly and helpful.Kate
Although it is probably possible to go on this quest by yourself, I would definitely recommend bringing friends. They will often pick up on the clues you miss, and it's a lot more fun to have a buddy on a quest. Chinese Jewelry Box would also be great for children, as most of the clues require object searching rather than puzzle solving. Hence, if you're going on a quest for the first time, this could be a good start, though beware: you can get hooked. I'm already thinking about the other quests I'd like to try.
Being friends with the daughter of your logics teacher has its perks! Especially when her father Lao Lew keeps the exam tickets at home. You managed to get an invitation, but apparently, the girl has figured out your plan...
«Your life is in your hands. Life is a play, and the ticket for it is in a Chinese jewelry box», she said laughing and ran away closing the door. The professor will return in an hour, and you have to make it out with the tickets!
