Our vacation escape room adventures continued today with a visit to The Playground. We joined up with a family of seven from North Carolina in order to get all of our grades so that we could make it to the dodge ball tournament on time. There was so many people in the room, it helped to break up into groups and solve multiple puzzles at the same time. We finished with five minutes to spare.
Abby had a day off from being a lifeguard down at the Oviedo pool, so we decided to spend that time in prison, an escape room prison that is. It was a challenge for six people, but the other two people didn’t show up, so we tackled it on our own. We also found out that it’s their toughest room, but we felt we were up for the challenge.
We started out in two separate cells and had to work together in order to get a key to our jail cells. One was a magnetic maze that me and Izzy could see and had to convey the direction Abby and Emily had to go on the other size in their cell. Once out, we had to figure out a few more puzzles to get through some doors. There were colored pipes and we had to look through them at hash marks on the wall in order to tell the combination to a lock. Then, we had to key in some switches to some tic-tac-toe puzzles that were around the room. A few more puzzles later and we slid down into our final room. With only ten minutes left, we didn’t have enough time to finish. We had two puzzles left when time was up.
It was a trough room, but we had fun. I thought we did a good job for down two people and it being their toughest room.
This past week Emily received an invitation to the senior graduation ceremony because she won an award. We couldn’t figure out what it could be and thought it weird that she would be attending the senior’s graduation. We found it today. She received the Citizenship Award. “In recognition of exemplary behavior and a positive attitude towards classmates, teachers, and the school community at Pace Brantley School.”
In honor of Abby graduating this week, we invited her, her boyfriend, Kaleb, and her sisters out to eat at Chuy’s.
Yesterday and today we celebrated Emily’s 15th birthday. Last night we went to eat pizza at Ragazzi’s in College Park. What we think is the best pizza in Orlando. Then we spent the evening over at Dave & Busters playing games. Between the five of us we earned enough tickets for Emily to get some nice headphones. At least we thought they were nice until we looked them up on Amazon and found out they were worth around $20.
Today we went out for breakfast and finished it off opening presents and having some cake at home. I can’t believe Emily is already 15 years old.
