If you are playing this game, make sure you also book for Utopia. I’ve never seen a game where the two intertwine their stories so cleverly. These are both absolute must dos.
The story is fantastic and totally fits the theme very well. The story continues throughout the game and there was a fair bit of physicality involved, a real nice mix of challenges.
A big room which can accommodate up to ten people, although I’d say that 6-7 is optimum to ensure that everyone has plenty to do.
I’m always a fan of themes inspired by local history and folklore, and this is the case here - the room’s scenario is based on a Derbyshire legend about a witch. Now, you’re trapped in her cabin, and to escape you must cast a spell...
The room looks convincingly like a witch’s cabin, and a number of puzzles are scattered around, all giving pieces of a final meta-puzzle which leads to a memorable and satisfying finale. Some of the most fun I’ve had in a Escape room l
This was my second-ever escape room and it still bears up in comparison with many of the games I’ve played since, with a great dramatic moment and a crucial choice, giving greater depth and excitement than a simple escape objective.
I was a bit disappointed with this room, tbh.
Part of the problem with my experience was that it was very hot, and the start of the game is in a very small room, and there were five of us, including some larger individuals, so it got unbearably hot and stuffy. I know escape venues can’t control the weather but they could make more effort to adapt when it’s very hot.
The main part of the room is bigger and better ventilated, but there was an over-reliance on padlocks throughout.
Overall a solid enough room, but not really outstanding in any way.
A slick futuristic room, although we did have a niggle with one of the puzzles not quite working properly.
