Re: Rate the Legends Room - Day 23: The Laser Light Room

I gave the Laser Light Room an 8. This was easily the best bottom of the central shaft room. I know the objective was all about luck and was easy, but that doesn't matter because this room was very memorable to me. And I liked how the laser light effects looked in this room. Like I said earlier, an easy objective doesn't make it a bad room. The Laser Light Room is a perfect example of this.  :mrsilver:

And somehow I always forget that the "disco effect" machine is always in front of the room, but not exactly in the camera frame all the time. Why couldn't all rooms have that little quirk? Like the Jester's Court lighting up once the objective is done. ;)

I gave the Laser Light Room a 7. It's a fine room, just not as interesting as some others. But still good. I like that the objective mixes agility and luck.

I gave this room an 8. Easily the best Observatory room variation ever. I liked the concept of aligning a stone puzzle in order to advance to the next room. In other words, it was an objective, NOT just "spin this object and move on." The producers really did a good job with this room. ;)

I gave the Stone Column an 8. I love this Observatory variant and would have enjoyed seeing it in Season 3 as well.

I am going to give the Stone Column an 8 as well. It was the perfect room for the top of the central shaft. And it was one of the few rooms that required skill with no luck involved. I really wish they brought this room back to Season 3 instead of replacing it with the King's Storeroom. They could've changed the puzzle a little bit and it would've worked perfectly. I loved watching how contestants like Shem and Matt from Dolley Madison dominated this room.  :mrsilver:  :mrorange:

I was also gonna say.... they should've brought this room back for Season 3. I was just never into the cramped Season 3 version of the King's Storeroom. A room like this would've fit in perfectly in Season 3. ;)

I love the King's Storeroom but I prefer it to be in it's normal spot. I don't know what means for the Room of the Ancient Warriors. I mean, they could have, you know, changed up the layout a little bit!

Yeah, the producers could've changed the Season 3 layout around at least once. Even if it meant repeating rooms from Season 2. And I also agree that The King's Storeroom was much better in its original spot in Season 2 than in Season 3. ;)

On another note, this seriously needs some more votes. Come on people, vote! I really don't want to update these polls until I get at least 5 votes.

I am really not a fan of the Season 3 King's Storeroom at all. I liked it better when the contestants broke the pots with their hands. Even though it made more sense for them to use the middle part of the room to do it. Plus, I hated the camera angle in the S3 King's Storeroom. I would've definitely kept the Stone Column and just tweak the objective a little bit. Like I would use a different design for the column for example.

And I forgot to vote in this poll.  :oops: Now you just need one more vote to get to your goal. ;) (GM1 or TSM perhaps?)

I hate Season 3's King's Storeroom. Too cramped, and the camera angle looked really bad. Season 2's version was better. While we're on the subject of the Season 2 version of the Observatory, (like we are right now), this should've returned for Season 3. In the same spot of course.

And now I need one more vote for this poll. ;) Should I leave this poll open for an extra day, or should I update it anyways with 4 votes?

I wouldn't mind if you wait for another vote. Although right now this forum is in kind of a slump, so I wouldn't get my hopes up. Even my rating thread is down with voters. But I still update it even with 3 votes since it is a long series.

I anticipate there will be more voters as the summer goes on. ;)

Yeah, maybe I will just update the thread with only 4 votes. And you're right, maybe later on in the month we'll get more votes in these polls. Though both threads I have currently running will be near ending by then. :lol: Regardless, I'll update later tonight. ;)
