London, Mar 2016
It is a tragedy that this room had to close after losing their venue, since it was probably my most highly recommended escape room – fingers crossed they manage to re-open somewhere else.
The immersion and attention to detail was at a whole different level. It was for larger teams, which is a harder design challenge, but all eight of us could get stuck into different parts of the room without it being awkward or leaving anyone standing around.
It had the most original and creatively themed hint system I’ve ever seen, as well as some use of live actors (including someone standing mutely in the room with us, which was a little disconcerting). It also had an optional extra puzzle that they throw in at their discretion if the team is doing well, which added to the feeling of being in a dynamic environment not just a static series of puzzles.
Not much to add to Toby, other than if it ever comes back, just do it. I would give it a 6 on Ambience, a couple of very innovative puzzles not seen before or since.
