Aladdin by Escape Hunt – Basingstoke

Our second room of the day was Aladdin. As before, the theming and immersion were very good. Some of the puzzles were enjoyable and logical however several again just required guess work. There were also some things you had to do which there were no clues for at all.

Whilst we love a challenging room, the difficulty needs to come from the complexity of logical puzzles rather than having to guess what to do.

Our downfall was that we were looking for the logical when it wasn’t actually there.

We couldn’t help but feel disappointed with this room overall.
