I have just started watching the first episode of SyFy’s Exit.
Set up: The show introduces four teams of two. They are led into a room. And the floor, like a super villain’s trap, starts to slide away. The teams jump to four beams sticking from the walls.

I can only assume it is rigt below the frame and padding and safety personnel.)
This is just the first room.

What I find very interesting is that near no one (that I can find in a casual look) is talking about system specs and capabilities.
