Review of “Expelled”
at Keymasters in Hamilton
“You’re the biggest pranksters in high school, but you never leave behind any evidence to get caught, causing others to get in trouble for your pranks. You have pushed the EAs to their limits, and now they are trying to get you Expelled. Can you escape before the Principal catches you red-handed?”
We chose this room because the back-to-school season is quickly approaching – and we’d already completed The Alley and Santa’s Workshop at this location. Also, being themed on a popular 90’s TV show brought back some memories for us – not so much for our teenagers that joined us.
The room is well built and you get the sense of being in a high school detention room. It is, however, quite beat up. A little too much. A lot of props have been pulled from their place over time or worn down and it is in desperate need of repairs to minor decor and props.
The puzzles are clever and make sense but, being worn down from use, some elements are not working the way they were originally intended. There is a key piece of technology that does not work well anymore and could be integrated much much better. It’s time to upgrade that piece and improve the integration because waiting for technology to work eats up precious time.
The room is large enough for 4 to 6 people with lots of things to explore. We completed it just in time with four of us. This room could be really good and I imagine at one point it was. But it needs repairs and updates in order to be an incredible experience.
