Confundrum – Twisted Woods

Confundrum is located in Burlington Ontario.  This time we had 3/4 of the #REDivas with Manda, Ruby and I.  We had been hearing great things about Twisted Woods so we made the trek out to Burlington to visit this gem.

Long story short: You’ve run out of gas in front of this vacant cabin, will you be able to find gas or get trapped trying.

Creativity and Design: Did it sell the story / theme?
Summary: A room with a memorable start and ending.

+ impressive set design details, with an impressive beginning and ending.
+ creative props and environmental choices that add to the intensity to the room

Bells and Whistles: Was it more than lockboxes?
Summary:  Good tech usage to enhance the immersion

+ Quite a few tech elements in the room
+ no tech hiccups
+ good use of storytelling tech and environmental effects

:  Did you have to be inside the designer’s mind to solve it?
Summary: An overall smooth room, with some minor polish needed

+ The puzzles are mostly straightforward, with 1 or 2 puzzles that require some direction
+ We completed the room with 5-10 minutes left, but needed 1-2 hints
+ Responsive walkie talkie hint system.

Staff Support/Price : Were they friendly? Were they helpful? What was the Damage?

GM Alex was knowledgeable and very friendly.  Confundrum offers post-game popcorn (which would have made #REDivas Errol fall head-over-heels for them) and a nice lobby to chat in.  Overall a great customer experience.

Overall:  Twisted woods is definitely a gem just sitting outside of the GTA.  It’s worth the drive to Burlington (assuming you live where we live).
