This room appears to be an inaccessible place (for players) and was revealed by Cipsoft member - Delany. It seems that its purpose is to somehow trigger various raids in Tibia, but how does it work exactly?

The mysterious raid triggering room doesn't appear to be for all raids in Tibia. I'd suggest for just the room is dedicated to the Orc raid on Zzaoin. I wanted to paste a direct quote because no one explains it better than the source itself,

Certain things are also rather tricky to make and really pose a challenge. Chayenne explains that the Zzaion raid, for example, was quite complicated since she needed to find a way to open those gates during a raid, make sure that they stay open until next server save and then close again without locking characters in: "I eventually did it with ten hidden switches under Zzaion that are triggered by, uhm, rats that also spawn during the raid. Some of them appear just one time for a few seconds and do things like opening the gate or setting the walls on fire, others stay until the raid has ended and trigger a few special effects like fire raining from the sky. I'm still a bit disappointed though that the effects don't look half as spectacular as I hoped them to be and are over within a second each time."

I must have somehow missed this article. I try to read all, as they're great source of information.
I guess that's all I wanted to know. Very good find. Thanks!
