Scotus0 experienced reviewed The Chapel by Take The Exit:

U Okay, Nun?

Another escape with my family, and my second visit to Take the Exit.

Story

Investigate the abandoned chapel and the mysteries behind the Sisters' deaths.

Puzzles

There were broad themes of religion, magic and folklore attached to the puzzles. It was great how different members of our teams contributed to different solutions. There was a good, albeit basic mix.

Mise-en-scène

Effort was made, but the surroundings had more of a generic, spooky attic feel to them. More could have been in place to amplify a haunted chapel ambience. Once again, opportunities to include scares were overlooked. There were parts of the room I observed and thought 'Ooh, this is going to be frightening' that didn't amount to anything.

Final Comments

It was definitely trickier than Doll House, but we only needed one hint, and that was for something we'd already worked out. There's lots to do, so six didn't actually feel too large a group for this one.

Scotus0 experienced reviewed Dollhouse by Take The Exit:

Dolls…So Many Dolls!

Then-marketed as Hull’s scariest escape rooms, I was excited to tackle the Doll House with my two friends from home.

Story

Investigate the disappearance of Lucy Mason. The website description leaves much to be desired.

Puzzles

They were all relatively straightforward; we breezed through a lot of them. The odd puzzle had us scratching our chins for a bit, but we only needed a single hint. A fair bit of searching had to be done, which was made challenging in this dimly lit room (but not to an unreasonable extent). It’s classed as ‘medium’ difficulty on the website, which is an accurate rating.

Mise-en-scène

Great! Although it wasn’t exactly clear where we were, the room was other-worldly. I genuinely felt tense when finding my way around the daunting collection of old, cobwebby, broken dolls. We could have been in somebody’s nightmare. There was only one actual ‘scare’, though, but it didn’t get me (honest!)

Final Comments

The ending to the story was anti-climactic. This room can be done as a pair but three certainly wasn’t a crowd!

Rated between 40 and 40 out of 5
