Claustrophilia – Voodoo – Budapest

⍟⍟⍟⍟. Recommended by EscapeRoomers. This was the 8th room of the Blitz, and the last room of Day One. This room was fun and did a great job tying together the theme with decorations and puzzles. However, it was just too quick. They need to add another puzzle or four. Overall, it was fun, and I’d like to try Claustrophilia’s other Budapest room, Wicklewood. See below for the full review.

“A lot of brave people tried to save the last priestess before you, but they couldn’t break the curse and failed. The evil sorcerer is prepared to these attempts and fortified his temple with magical traps and puzzles. Maybe you are the chosen one who can defeat the sorcerer and his evil magic.

So, it’s hard for me to really rate this room. I say the difficulty level is a 2/5, but it isn’t really for beginners. The low difficulty rating is really to say that there are not enough puzzles to keep a good team busy for an hour, or even half an hour. I really like the room, from getting in, to exploring and getting out. There are multiple rooms, which was, in a way, really disappointing because they did not take advantage of the space to add extra layers of puzzles. As soon as we go to a certain point, I was getting really excited because I expected a much longer and bigger production, but a minute later I realized  that it was over!

The theme and integration into the story was really pretty good.It kept us moving, and was not easy, but once you got past the first big puzzle, everything else was pretty quick to move through. There was one point where we were trying to figure out what to do, and the employee chimed in over the walkie-talkie telling is what to do. It wasn’t asked for, and it wasn’t even a hint. It was too much, too soon. That was pretty annoying. Now that I’m writing this, I’m kind of mixed. I loved the room, but it really didn’t make use of its potential. I’d still recommend it, but be prepared to get out with plenty of time to spare.

  1. I think i have the same feeling about the Room.. the design and the idea is really cool, but the number of puzzles is rather small and the only reason it took us a long time to finish was that some of the objects involved didnt work properly :/ the game-master even had to come in at one point to screw a lock from the wall

      1. Haha 😀 Well, i dont know how Claustrophilia normally handles this, since they go for the “never really see the game master in the first place” thing. Maybe you are not to supposed to meet him at all? 😀
