illogicalpoor hostingvery easy

This room was well made and included some decent puzzles but was badly let down by the hosting. The host gave far too many clues in quick succession without giving us any time to work it out ourselves. We got out in 33 minutes because of this and didn't have time to enjoy the room.

Make no mistake, this is a hard room but it looks fantastic, has one of the best visual 'experiences' yet and may be the best Pirate room I've so far played.  We failed as we were on the last puzzle after spending too much time on a logic puzzle earlier one having failed to spot the pattern.  Best room at the venue.

Probably the better of the rooms available here. It’s very much in line with the type of rooms you expect with the Escape franchise. Quite a small space but still a fun room. For experienced players expect to be finished before the 30 minute mark but it’s perfect for families and beginners

Reviews by escape room review sites

The UK's largest escape room franchise has been busy this year, with new branches popping up across the country. In London they've added a branch in Shadwell to the existing one in West London to double the number of games on offer. Seven Seas is one of the new additions, and uses a pirate theme.
My experience with Escape is that they usually provide beginner-friendly rooms that are reliably entertaining as mainstream escape experiences. My first impression on entering this one was that they've...
A pretty game with some fun puzzles, but our enjoyment was severely impaired by the ambiguity of a couple of solutions. If you get easily frustrated, you should definitely steer clear of this experience but if not, then there's definitely some fun to be had.
If you’ve done rooms at Escape Peterborough before then this room will be nothing like them. They’ve really upped their game with this room and the only rival for it there is The Cabin. Good theming, decent puzzles (although padlock heavy), but swash-buckling fun

Initial impressions as we walked in the room; it was well decorated and themed, creating an authentic atmosphere.Initially you start off in two split locked spaces, searching around for what you need to get out, communicating all the while between the groups.
