Puzzlair: The Warehouse of Jack Travis

Bristol, Nov 2016

Rated 3.5 out of 5
Puzzlair do old-school escape rooms – by which I mean this room was a long sequence of padlocks. But if that sounds like lazy design, it’s not, at least in this case. The decor is stripped down but on-theme, and the puzzles are varied and satisfying.
The company is venerable by the standards of UK escape rooms, and I got the impression they have it down to a fine art. Looking at past teams’ times written on their reception area walls, there seemed to be surprisingly many who got out with seconds to spare, or who failed by a narrow margin – I suspect they’re skilled at giving a careful drip-feed of clues for teams to encourage as many as possible to finish on a knife-edge. 3.5 / 5
Consistent theme with a few nice surprises without being spectacular. Very lock heavy. 3.5 / 5
