Another trip back to Freeing Canada for their Painter’s Murderer room. A fellow reviewer had kept telling me about his family’s experience and how they enjoyed it. I also heard about how easy it was, which of course meant I had to try this room with only 2 people (one of them being a newbie).
So how did it turn out? Well, let’s start with the positives… This room has a neat twist on the conventional escape room experience. Not only do you need to escape, but you also need to find the murder weapon, what time it took place, and who did it. I’m definitely a sucker for anything new. The theme is consistent through the set design, puzzles, and atmosphere. On the flip side, experienced players won’t be happy with not having enough sources of light in a dark room (especially when searching, reading, or physical manipulation is required)! Three people and two flashlights is annoying. To all owners out there, I beg of you on behalf of all players GTA wide, give us more light (this includes black lights), or at the minimum find more creative ways of slowing players down instead of forcing them to share light sources!
So do we recommend this room? Yes, but be advised this room is small and better suited for 2-4 players. You’d probably also want at least one experienced player in your group. All in all, it’s a good room, not a great one, but if you’re looking for subtle twists and different experiences in your escape rooms why not give it a shot?
As always, happy escaping!
