With a superb start that leads you to the main room, a non-linear design, wonderful theming, this is easily my favourite room at Break Escape.

Definitely recommend for a group of people rather than a pair! Setting is great and very unique, with lots of creative quirks. Good fun. 

We were a bit overwhelmed by how completely non-linear it was, and the GM kept stopping us to explain the puzzles and check if we were right/wrong, which wasn't great.

Loved the unique elements of this game and the way the designers have managed to create a real Narnia feel inside! Lots to do and it is very easy to get distracted by things that won't help towards the overall goal. Only gripe is that most of the room is not automated so the GM has to trigger the next steps manually. That being said still very enjoyable!

Reviews by escape room review sites

Some game reviews are straightforward to write, others are not; this is one of the tricky ones. But let’s start by saying Enchanted Forest is Break Escape’s fourth and newest (so far) room, and places you in a magical snowbound forest which contains no direct references to the Narnia books but which is nonetheless a clear and affectionate homage to them.

A nice opening sequence leads dramatically into the main part of the game. I’ll avoid details, but at this point I’d been completely won over,...

An enchanting game with a memorable start that throws you right into the heart of a beautiful fantasy world. Plenty of logical puzzles and little to frustrate plus some bonus challenges to keep more experienced teams occupied.
I don’t know if it was because we were tired or hungry, but we struggled to click with this game. It was pretty and impressive, but the puzzles, particularly the search element, just left us feeling deflated.
A nicely themed game packed with puzzles and sporting the start to an escape game that I’ve long been waiting for.
