My favourite room they have here at escape reality.
Love the start of the room and it really demonstrates teamwork. The first half of the room is truly a teamwork game and co operation.
I know the prison feel can be overdone as its a common theme, however this was executed very well and made it feel like a true escape.
A couple of the puzzles were a little ambiguous with very little signposting, however i would say that its certainly not the hardest room we have ever played by a long shot and i and that all the rooms at escape reality cater for beginner players rather than intermediate or advanced.
if you are ever in manchester, please make sure you stop by and give this game a go. a team of 4 is optimal
The theming of this room was absolutely brilliant, innovative ways to move on to the next rooms and a great exit to the room too.
one puzzle had us stumped for a while and to be honest, it was one of them very tedious puzzles that you know is a puzzle but you just dont want to even try and work out what to do with it.
The rest of the room was outstanding, however they had one of my biggest bug bares... a puzzle that is no longer working in the room but they have still left the signposting and the props in place. we knew instantly that something wasn't right because the door was already open but nonetheless, the puzzle elements should be removed. they did confirm at the end that the puzzle is broken and they are removing it at some point so dont let this throw you off
As far as theming goes, the last half of the experience was themed very well with some very creepy elements, the first part however was a let down and if you didn't know the theme, it would be tough to decipher what it is.
Escape reality mark this is a 4 star difficulty rating, however i would say that the puzzles are far and few between, without much challenge to them.
As a team of 4, we found some of players sat around not doing anything because there wasn't anything they could be getting on with. reccomend paling this room as either a 2 or a 3 to get the most out of it
A very well themed room split into several sections. the first part of the game was great with some really strong puzzles that weren't too challenging. That being said, the last part of Tortuga Pirates was a massive let down. we actually escaped still with padlocks locked. and when we asked the GM to explain, they responded that its fine, its not really needed. no explanation.
This would be a great game for anyone that's never done an escape room before or have done maybe just 1 or 2 but its definitely not one for seasoned players.
worth sticking your head in the door to see the scenery and theming but that is as far as i would recommend.
This game could easily have got one of two ratings. I would have either rated this a 2 or a 4... now let me explain.
Auron is their new room that comes in either Portal 1 or Portal 2 and is a challenge based game whereby you are competing against the players in the other room. I rated this game 4 stars due to the competition element, however if you are only playing one room and don't have enough players to occupy 2 rooms, then i would only rate it as a 2 star room. The competition element is what really gets the heart racing. Each time you solve a puzzle, a light comes on in the opponents room to let them know how far you are, something we found ourselves getting really into.
As for the puzzles, i would say this is the PERFECT room for new players and beginners as it gives you several non-linear puzzles which are all common escape room tropes, educating new players into the types of puzzles they are likely to encounter.
A very well themed room with lots of puzzles and a great sense of competition.
