So we couldn’t go on honeymoon without seeing what Croatia had to offer in terms of escape games. As fans of Game of Thrones, we had picked Dubrovnik as our first location. We, of course, had to try their GOT inspired room – Save King’s Landing. Based on events from season 2, we had to find the wildfire to ensure that Tyrion’s army could defend themselves against Stanis Baratheon’s attack at Blackwater Bay (which was partly filmed at Old Town Dubrovnik).
From the second we entered the room, we loved it! The props and decor were phenomenal. With inspiring books about the great houses of Westeros, house banners and old wooden and iron props, we were transported to the seven Kingdoms.
The room itself takes a linear strategy and it seemlessly flowed from one puzzle to the next. The puzzles themselves were imaginative, immersive and there wasn’t a coded padlock in sight!
Our GM was also welcoming and interesting to talk to, an experienced escape room player himself. He let us complete the room without interference and we luckily didn’t need to ring the “bell of shame” for a clue.
We finished with just over 27 mins to spare, which was a quick time but we loved it nonetheless.
