Weekday Escape N°136
Ichima's beautiful cabin in the snow, Funkyland's decadent European hotel and... Vitamin Hana's dingy old playroom/attic. I know, I know. It seems like an obvious choice, right? But even the more pleasing options come with a flood of locks and codes that will make you second-guess your choice of vacation spot.
Room 18's chilly festive theme will be a breath of fresh air to readers in Australia (where temperatures have soared over 40 degrees Celsius in recent weeks). While you may be tempted to recline on the bed and enjoy the soft snowflakes falling outside the window, you won't have time to enjoy the view - there's escaping to do!
The name of Funkyland's latest escape offering makes it seem like you'll hardly want to escape. Who wouldn't want to be stuck in a Parisian hotel? The room seems to be tastefully decorated, but you may be tempted to leave a zero star review of your stay once you realise that you need to crack some tough puzzles to access pretty much everything (including the free Wifi... the HORROR). Note that one puzzle has some Japanese text instructions, but is still decipherable for non-Japanese speakers.
Vitamin Hana's latest offering is a depressingly sparse playroom in someone's attic. All of the toys are cruelly locked away behind a series of locks and puzzles. You'll need to solve each one and creatively use some of the toys to escape from the room. You'll be thankful to escape the slightly claustrophobic space, and the children will thank you for releasing their playthings!
