PLAN52 is one of our top secret locations from where our spies run their covert operations. However, something terrible has happened: four of our agents who were stationed there have vanished without a trace. We have proof that this was the work of a double agent. Furthermore, Mr Q suspects that the evil Professor BlackSheep helped the double agent to cover his tracks.
It is up to you and your team to investigate this risky matter and learn the identity of the double agent. But be careful, Mr Q has confirmed that the traitor has managed to reset the security device of the facility! From the moment you set foot inside PLAN52 you will have just 60 Minutes to learn who the double agent was and deactivate the device before the entire facility detonates.

This was our final visit to Cluequest until they open another room, as we've now done them all. 🙁 For some reason we've played them backwards from the most recent first, but it didn't feel like we were playing an older/tired room, far from it. (I'm aware that this has moved so it's likely had a bit of a glow-up, but the tech still felt wonderfully original and innovative). Cluequest is great at finding new ways to present old ideas, so there aren't many actual padlocks in this, but it will still prove satisfying for those of us who do enjoy traditional puzzle solving. As usual, there are things we haven't seen before, and lots of fiendish brainwork to keep you guessing. We love the Cluequest characters and story and this falls happily within that universe. Not their most difficult room, but still lots to trip you up. Loads to do for a 2 player team so you really have to work at speed to get through it.

Love the games at ClueQuest. This one's a bit more searchy than the others, but it's still absolutely brilliant.

This room has just had a technical revamp and the tech is absolutely spot-on. There's a lot of searching and finding and there is a lot to do - expect to be busy, especially in a team of two. There were some nice quirky touches in here that really appealed to us and we really enjoyed the challenge level. Overall, a really solid room with reliable, impressive tech and enough to keep us busy.

Reviews by escape room review sites

Cluequest is a slick high-capacity operation set up well for the corporate market. But they have a fun tongue-in-cheek style, and they're a good beginner-friendly option.

I enjoyed PLAN52 a great deal. This may be because I played it on a much earlier occasion than Sam, when I'd only done a handful of escape rooms; it's possible it's less impressive to enthusiasts than to beginners. But I like the slightly cartoonish aesthetic and I found all Cluequest's rooms challenging and fun.

Their three ...

I'll always have fond memories of my first ever escape game. Yes, an industrial estate wasn't the most impressive setting, but it's not the outside, it's the inside that matters. Great game, easing beginners gently into the genre before exposing them to a host of different puzzles.
Plan 52 is clueQuest’s first game, and while it is no longer anything ground-breaking, it still holds up as a solid game that is a delight to play, making it enjoyable for enthusiasts and perfect for first time players.

I thoroughly enjoyed this game, and even if you’ve played it before I’d recommend popping back to see the enhanced version. You won’t be disappointed! The staff at clueQuest are all incredible and will ensure you are completely immersed in your surroundings as well as providing some laughs along the way.

We head to King's Cross to work out who's the double agent that's been helping Professor BlackSheep.

Plan52 has been revamped, so this review (Sept 21) is for the most recent version of the game.

“I’ve found what looks like a HintHunt rip-off online, shall we try it?” is how I proposed this, our third escape room, to my friends. clueQuest have since relocated twice, are now one of the largest sites in London, if not the country, and widely regarded as one of the best. But when they launched it was with a website that seemed to use the same template as HintHunt’s and we sniggered at the numerous spelling mistakes. We even had to email the owners to get them to let us book a month in advance!

This February, our favourite escape room company clueQuest invited us out to come and experience Plan 52, the first escape room in the current 4 part series of escape rooms.

Good for first-timers, groups with limited experience, or groups who don’t know one another. Good mix of technology, ingenuity, and codes, although a few too many padlocks.
