ENTER THE VAULT
Did you love games and puzzles when you were a kid? I know I did. Me and my younger sister would make up all kinds of games in which you had to go through different rooms solving puzzles and mysteries while jumping from chair to chair because the floor was made of lava. About fifteen years later those days are behind us and we usually do normal stuff like going out for coffee or to see a movie. We still like games and puzzles though; when we get together you could easily catch us playing monopoly or the occasional mario-kart match. I guess we just don't fool ourselves into believing the bathroom is a basement filled with long-lost secrets anymore. I think that as we grow up we need increasingly more realism to really give into our imagination. A chair on a red carpet is no longer a rock that rises from the boiling lava pools of death. You just feel too old for that stuff, and you would feel silly doing it even though it used to be so much fun.
I had heard about escape rooms before and I guess the idea was appealing to me, but I never really looked into it. A friend of mine came up with the idea to try breaking into 'the vault' and really needed another competitor. I didn't have anything else going on and I thought to myself; well hey, why not? Let's give this escape room thing a try. Well I can assure you, as soon as we stepped into 'the vault' those feelings of excitement and curiosity I used to have stepping over chairs in our living room on my way to the next clue came bubbling up again. Everything looks amazingly real and there are even professional actors who make it seem like you should actually be on your guard. The whole thing is like a special agent's mission where you're Ethan Hunt infiltrating in enemy territory or Danny Ocean robbing a casino. We barely got out with our lives.
Sherlocked has excelled greatly in making an exciting puzzle for people who have past the age where they used to play pretend. I can recommend trying to break into 'the vault' to anyone who would like to see if that past love for games still is in there somewhere. It exceeded all of my expectations, I'm sure it will blow your mind.
