Tom experienced reviewed Hotel Heist by Locked In Games Leeds:

Last room in our 5 in a day escape day. Fun room with again a great theming if the set and soundtrack. Couple of unusual puzzles here and interesting games mechanics! Very fun

Rated between 35 and 35 out of 5
Tom experienced reviewed The Hidden Book by Locked In Games Leeds:

Very smart room. Compared to the others at Locked in games this one has a really stand out set. Reminded me of the crystal maze at the start to gain entry and then lots of cool props and puzzles. We would have topped the leader board if we had not overlooked one little thing and needed help haha. 

Rated between 40 and 40 out of 5
Tom experienced reviewed Kiss of Death by Locked In Games Leeds:

Excellent fun! This room starts in such a realistic setting! There is stuff to do, leading to a big surprise and then things get wild! We thought we were so ahead of time but no there was still sooooo much to do!! Really enjoyed this one

Tom experienced reviewed The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by Locked In Games Leeds:

Great room, it is one of those where once you get in and get going you can tackle stuff in any order which can be quite overwhelming. All the puzzles fit the story well and quite a challenge for a room that has quite a young theme. Lots of fun

Tom experienced reviewed American Die-ner by Locked In Games Leeds:

Here we did 5 escape rooms in a day! I’ve wanted to do an escape day for ages, with my bezzie escape room pal! The venue is a fantastic building, so big! So much space for them to continue to expand. Very well organised for us and they gave us a little snack / treat basket to keep us going. 

I’ll rate each room individually

This one actually was my least fave, tho maybe we were just mentally  tired out haha. It wasn’t a bad room, just not quite my fave!

2nd Thrilling Visit to Locked In

I looked at Locked In’s website with my friends and we all agreed that Kiss of Death sounded more than interesting, so we scrubbed up and made our way to St Margaret’s Hospital.

Story

The deaths of seemingly-healthy patients on Ward 106 need to be checked out. As far as stories go, this had an intriguing set-up, sudden twist and shocking reveal. It spooked, shook and surprised us! This scenario kept me engrossed in the game.

Puzzles

It delivers on medical-themed puzzles. Thinking in and outside the box is essential: I remember getting stumped a fair few times, so would say that this is a room for more experienced players.

Mise-en-scène

Just like American Die-ner, this room gave genuine vibes; I could believe I was there to visit someone in hospital. We were told they often spray it to give it a ‘sterile’ smell, too! Without giving anything away, the aforementioned twist comes with an amazing bit of tech.

Final Comments

We fought to the last puzzle and ran out of time. Gutted! Nonetheless, this was another great room: we were all really impressed with the mechanics. I really need to go back and do more!

Discord in the Diner!

I took a hungover first-timer to this one, so it was a treat to find out we’d start the challenge separated!

Story

A bitter human being has placed a bomb in the kitchen of Shirley’s, which must be diffused before the whole place is destroyed. The classic ‘Stop the bomb!’ story given a culinary twist.

Puzzles

So many puzzles! There was quite a bit of arithmetic involved, which makes sense and fitted in to the story and its setting. Admittedly, we were pushed through the final one to ensure our victory, but the awkward items involved were making life tricky, especially in those last few minutes.

Mise-en-scène

Amazing. I’ve just done my 55th room and the Die-ner still stands out so strongly above the rest. If I sat down at one of the 50s-style tables, I wouldn’t have been surprised if a waitress in a red and white striped uniform came to take my order, haha. The kitchen apparatus, till, tip jar, wall art and everything in between were all spot on.

Final Comments

I’d recommend taking more than two people, as our work really was cut out. It was an intense, fast-paced game and it’s up there with one of my all-time faves!
