A cross between a game show and a Sherlock Holmes novel, you and your team are locked inside a mysterious room and tasked with solving a number of clues and puzzles in order to escape.
Tucked away in a nondescript building in a car park behind the Rivonia Centre strip mall, finding Lostland's incongruous entrance is a challenge in itself, although by far the easiest of the Lostland experience.
Upon arrival the simple rules of the game were explained to us: You may ask for three clues and please, do not attempt to destroy the place. After being assigned a walkie talkie and a pair of flashlights, one member of our team was then 'kidnapped' and imprisoned in a neighbouring room and we were led to our first challenge of 'Mission Impossible'.
Some of Lostland's puzzles are fiendishly difficult and asking for a clue early on is definitely not a bad idea. After an hour we had successfully freed our prisoner, unlocked several boxes and doors, found the secret files of our foes and destroyed a missile. But we still hadn't escaped and time was running out.
Lostland has three themed escape room games – Mission Impossible (the most difficult), Castle Secret (the 'easiest') and Prison Break. Each escape room takes approximately one hour to complete in a team of between three and six players, aged 12 and above.
