Freeing Canada – Unforeseeable Pyramid
Freeing Canada is located in Richmond Hill between Major Mackenzie and 16th Ave, on top of a T&T Supermarket. We were invited by the Matt from ERA to try out their latest room along with Errol and some out of town GMs.
Creativity and Design (aka its Fancy level): – Was it inventive ? Did it fit the theme?
Score : 5.0 of 5.0
The problem with playing so many similar themes like prisons, labs and egypt, is that you become jaded. The egypt theme is something that we have trouble stomaching because they are usually poorly done and lack attention to detail.
Unforeseeable Pyramid is an exception to this.
We were amazed with everything. The walls, the various props in the room and even the tech helped tell the story. As the room progresses, I’ll admit I was initially uneasy with the transition, but the room finished strong.
Bells and Whistles: Was it just lockboxes throughout the Room?
Score: 5.0 of 5.0
Of all the rooms at Freeing to date, this is a Tech Lover’s paradise. There is tech integrated in story elements and puzzles, which feels more authentic than most Egypt rooms that we’ve played. Bottom-line this is a exciting room to see.
Intuitive (aka Frustration Level): Was it solvable? or Did you have to be inside the creators mind to solve it?
Score: 5.0 of 5.0
Unforeseeable Pyramid has tough puzzles and is Freeing’s most difficult room. We had a mixed team of experts and new players, but we only escaped with 2 seconds to spare. The puzzles though don’t require any major logic leaps and provide enough direction. We did get stumped on one task-based puzzle that we wonder if other players would also struggle with.
The hint system uses the doorbell system where the gamemasters come into the room to give you hints, which we had no issues with.
Staff Support/Price : Were they friendly? Were they helpful? What was the Damage?
Gamemaster Ken was great to chat with and we had a long talk about the new room.
The price is $20/person on weekdays and $23/person on weekends after the discount.
Overall: Unforeseeable Pyramid is a solid room with great story and tech elements. Its not only our favourite Freeing Canada room, but now also our favourite Egypt-themed room. We highly recommend to bring a top-notch team to challenge it, ’cause we only got out with 2 seconds left.
