Have you ever had a dream about being trapped somewhere and you had to solve riddles and clues to get you out?
They always seem to be occurring in uncomfortable environments like decrepit mental hospitals, abandoned buildings or during an apocalypse.
Well now, you can make that dream a reality (without the impending death part).
Krakit is a new Room Escape experience, located in Burnaby. There are four theme rooms to choose from: Butcher, Asylum, Zombie Apocalypse and currently, Nightmare Before Christmas, where you get to test your thinking skills to successfully escape within 45 minutes before your fate is sealed.
Solve clues hidden right before your eyes to proceed throughout the experience. On occasion you may even have a visitor pop up while you’re concentrating on your task at hand.
Krakit is a fantastic addition to a night out before having dinner or hitting up the local bar. Grab your friends and work together as a team or organize a team building experience with your colleagues or community group.
My best friend from childhood joined me as we pursued The Asylum. She was “the friend” who, at every sleepover, insisted on renting Horror movies. She was the bravest of all of us back then, but now…mwah ha ha ha, it’s payback sista! She even wore a MASSIVE ring just in case we needed protection!
Together, we read clues, turned the rooms upside down and communicated with each other to try to solve the riddles. Throughout the game, you are allowed three “helps” in the event of getting stuck. With both of us being too stubborn to ask for help, we burned up a lot of our time in the first room. We did cave at one point and ask for help. Apparently everyone does it, so we really aren’t that lame 😉
The second room was easier for us as we quickly made it through the clues, unlocking various objects. We even got spooked a couple of times, throwing us off our concentration and adding to the excitement!
In the end, we finished 5 minutes past the allotted time, but it was totally worth it. We had so much fun and learned how well we work together. I think we need to try out for Amazing Race Canada next! We’ve already planned to go back to try another room and we’re going to bring more friends with us.
