A couple of equipment fails prevent this room from scoring more highly for me.
A clever central concept and a fun steampunk-laboratory setting (complete with on-theme clues) tie all the puzzles together. The original room at Escapologic but it (mostly) belies its age.
My first escape room failure! Mostly due to a search fail and spending ages on the wrong path. I think the GM could have done a better job of keeping us on track (when I subsequently re-played we had a different, better, GM) but that’s just an excuse...
This is a super spooky (though not full-on horror) room which leans heavily on atmosphere and literal darkness for effect. There is also a lot of crawling and getting in awkward spaces. The actual puzzles are relatively few in number and there’s a relatively high level of misdirection. These aren’t necessarily criticisms, just observations about what the room is like and hence who is likely to enjoy it.
Absolutely brilliant room, flawless in design, decor, and execution. A great theme, ingenious clue system, and a real ‘wow factor’. Tough puzzles even with 5 people, but always logical and with a clear flow.
An unmissable room for any escape enthusiast.
Escapologic are always friendly and enthusiastic. A great games master (can’t remember his name, sorry!) really enhanced our experience with this room thanks to his humorous in-character clues and comments on our progress.
This is a typically ingenious and immersive game from Escapologic. My only reservation is that the theme of a damaged laboratory meant that the room decor featured a lot of dirty, knackered old electric components which were kind of gross - and I spent ages looking through them...
