A tech heavy room that has a very impressive ending. One of the many rooms that is worth doing in Margate
A brilliantly well-devised space themed room, Spacescape was made with love to a high standard, with just a single tech fault and a couple of out-of-character puzzles not detracting from the overall experience of a physically active room that kept you on your toes throughout.
A voyage to another planet goes catastrophically awry, and we find ourselves desperately trying to reach our escape pod to save our skins. Why does it always end up being so hard to boldly go where no escapist has gone before?
