Will you be trapped in limbo forever?
Expedition Sydney Escape Rooms in Redfern is a new physical adventure Escape Room establishment and completing your first mission is trying to find it! Without ruining it too much, once you enter the door, you are greeted to a couple more doors; can you find the one to the Escape Room adventure?
After being welcomed by the charming Lindsey (who later was our "God" during our mission), the 'mission' began.
We were asked to put on blindfolds, stand in a single line, hands on the person's shoulder in front, and then we were lead to a room called the 'The Forgotten Son'. Lindsey then reads out a script which sets the scene.

'The sun is low on the horizon on your return trek in High Country Victoria. As the cold start to bite you notice a faint smell of wood fire lingering in the air and a flickering flame can be seen between the haze in the distance.
Seeking shelter you make your way towards the light where you come upon an old wooden, rusty, tin house. The sounds of a sobbing child emanate from within. In sensing its distress and unable to leave the child you look for a way in...' (Quoted by Expedition Sydney)
The Escape Room is four out of five difficulty rating and is suited for 3-6players.
If you do get stuck, ask for help from "God", who, via a speaker, will offer hints and suggestions.
This physical adventure game is a little different from other traditional Escape Rooms; there are microcontrollers and automation, which give the room personality. An element of mystery is added with the blindfolds and with the first step of finding the establishment makes it more exciting and anticipating.
