Amazing, immersive and a great use of the space. The beginning of the game is fantastic, can’t really say much more without giving too much away, but it was soo much fun. 

If I was to have any criticism, the “magic” element of it could have been achieved a little smoother as at times we could hear the GM behind the walls switching switches and levers etc and it broke the magic a little. The room is full of wow moments and the clue system is great and in theme with the room. Enjoyed it thoroughly

Personally couldn't fault the room. Non linear. Original. Fun. If you don't like this room, what's wrong with you!

One of the most superb starting sections to a game that we've seen; there is a real magic to this game that begins straight away. It's a lovely concept and design that feels really immersive. It's very GM-run and the interaction is very in keeping with the theme. Some nice puzzles and generally a really good time spent in the forest.

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.
