Last Sunday morning (like one of No Doubt's song title) was filled with brain cracking session but it was all good. Thanks to Churp churp, I get the chance to watch the premier of The Maze Runner at GSC Berjaya Times Square that morning. After redeeming my tickets, Suran invited me to join the other contestants at the Escape Room challenge. (Thanks!) Since i've wanted to try out but never had the time, so i was thinking why not. Beside the prizes looks so cool especially the outdoor tent!
After had my heavy breakfast, i went in to the cinema for the Maze Runner. The movie started with a boy named Thomas who apparently forgotten his name, being elevated inside a lift to a remote place with other bunch of young boys. It was actually a maze where they were trapped for almost 3 years there. Most of their memories was erased and it was like a community (The Glade) with council members of leader, 'runners', chef, doctors etc. Every 30 days, new boy will arrive. 'Runner' was appointed due to strong capability to run and their job was to map the maze as it changes periodically. no wonder they cant escape because the route changes each cycle.
The movie a little draggy in the beginning, but i like the part when this alien spider (Griever) kicks in. Its like part of transformer + alien invasion fighting with those young boys. Thomas's curiosity and the urge to survive was the key to escape from that crazy place. But i must give credit to the other 'runner', Minho. His athletic built and the way he runs is super cool, as if the character was made for him..hahaa.
Then suddenly one fine day, a girl was transported instead of a boy. That girl reminded me of the
lame character, Bella from Twillight saga. But sadly the youngest boy, Chuck was killed at the end which was also very close to Thomas. So why does the boys being trapped in the maze in the first place? You got to watch the movie for yourself and be prepared as phase 2 (sequel) is coming at cha!
After the movie, i went up to 7th floor and waited for the rest for the challenge to start. 2 teams were formed and my group consists of Mordred, Joyce, Wai How and Khai Ling. I am not good in cracking clues or puzzle but with the help of my friendly team mates, this games seem to be educationally good for the brain. haha
|get ready to escape!!|
|we pose as if we love to be handcuffed..haha|
Get ready for our first game - the Vampire room. it was pitch dark and a lot of bats hanging on the ceiling. We were handcuffed and was given a short brief before the game started. Some of the clues and hints was really difficult for me to digest, however we managed to understand after we used to help button and some explanation from the marshall.
|lost in the first round but we had fun time there haha|
|ok determine to outdo for the 2nd round at the Heaven and Hell theme|
Second challenge was inside the Heaven and Hell room. BEware if you are afraid of the dark and 'ghosts/pocong", it might gives you nightmare during your sleep..haha
