About a week ago, I visited the newly opened Code Factory at Jaya Shopping Centre with a bunch of other blogger and YouTuber friends. It was my first ever virgin crake-the-code/escape room experience, so I was more than excited to try it out!
Code Factory currently consists of 4 rooms with a variety of themes, stories, creative quizzes and puzzles. A great amount of time and creative juices were put in by the young team at Code Factory to ensure that the themes and stories were interesting, and the designs of the rooms were thrilling. Each room is unique and interactive that requires plenty of team work to solve the clues, puzzles and ultimately complete the game within a given time.
These were the 4 themes available while we were there last week! Wanna know what they're all about? You gotta find out yourselves at Code Factory! The themes rotate every other month, so be sure to visit them before they change the rooms :)
The prices for weekdays and weekends:
Weekdays (mon-fri, 10am-5pm)- RM32/player/game
Weekdays (mon-fri, 5pm-10pm)- RM36/player/game
Weekends and Public Holidays (10am-10pm)- RM36/player/game
Lockers to store your bags and valuables. Do note that mobile phones are allowed to be brought inside the rooms in case of emergency (not emergency from playing the games but from outside, like suddenly someone's car broke down and needs your help. something like that haha), but not allowed to be used during the games as such using the phone lights or searching for answers online. This is to maintain fairness in the game.
Meet my team- Team Good Form! :)
Wai Kit, Jeremy Choy, Chanwon and Dan Khoo. We went for the LOST room which was apparently the hardest and scariest! Turns out to be scary and yes, quite hard! :')
We got to name our team and decorate our banner before the game started, which was really fun! Having comic artist Wai Kit in our team meant that we would have special comic characters of us on our banner ;)
And so, the game began! We couldn't take photos while playing because firstly, we didn't want to spoil your fun! If you've seen everything then there's no fun in playing anymore. Secondly, we wanted to fully focus and enjoy the game :P
In the end, we all came out alive! Wheeeee!
We were all initially quite anxious as we didn't know what to expect at all. From the sound of the themes, they really seemed scary! I was expecting real gory scenes in the rooms, and even "ghosts" or "killers" to appear out of no where to scare us!
Fortunately though, there were only gory scenes but no random "ghosts" came in randomly to scare us, except one of the staff who came in out of the blue to assist us which scared the hell out of us!!! T-T We were all literally screaming and sticking to each other. Apparently me and Chanwon instantly jumped and ran to hide behind the guys within a second. We were in a room full of fake blood, head and body parts everywhere, then suddenly someone comes inside from underground. Tell me how not to freak out! T-T
Unfortunately, we were 10 mins overtime, but we still managed to complete our game! It wasn't easy at all as the clues were not very easy to solve, and required some math, logic and problem solving skills. Like the creators of the games intended, the games really needed teamwork. It's impossible for one to solve everything alone. I'm glad we made a great team! :)
And though we didn't complete the game within the time given, we were still considered winners as we completed our game the fastest among all the teams! Wheeeeeee! :)
Groupic! Love the jail cell concept. Jail cell for losers :')
