On 24 August 2019, 26 SUSS students and guests took on the challenge and put on their thinking caps to collectively analyse thought-provoking clues and solve challenging puzzles to escape from a locked room at Lost SG!
The participants were first split into different groups of four or more, after which the groups were shown a short video of the themes of their respective rooms to introduce the scenario and the game. The most popular room was “Exodus”, whereby the participants has to escape from the clutches of the merciless Pharaoh.
It was an intense hour of mind-gruelling detective work in each of the game rooms. When the time was up, the participants started to stream out of the rooms with a mixture of different expressions and emotions. Some expressed: “If only we had five more minutes, we could have solved the last puzzle!”, while some said, “Wow! We are the first team to escape from the room!”
Some of the students were also amazed by the level of technology in some of the equipment and devices in the rooms.
All in all, we could tell from the expressions of the participants that they enjoyed this real-life escape experience. Some of them were also up for round two of the challenge!
Till we meet again!
