James Bloodworth experienced says:

Fun WW2 themed room that starts off with arguably it's most difficult puzzle, don't get disheartened if you seem to stall straight away but stick with it.  Some great tropes on show with a couple of clever a-ha moments with a superb ending, definitely worth your time.

Tempted up to Leicester by a remarkably generous summer discount for returning customers, I finally tried out the first three games at Escapologic’s new branch, starting with Operation Magnus, which places you in a World War 2 bunker trying to foil an enemy super-weapon attack.
Stopping the Nazis is a tried and tested escape room theme, but I was interested to note that in this game the enemy is an organisation called Spyke. I have no problem with games using Nazi symbology (as long as they’re ...
It’s a fantastically themed room, with a few hidden surprises and a great ending but you’re not always clear what you should be doing.
Operation Magnus has certainly made it’s way into my top 10 escape rooms. The game offers a level of difficulty that doesn’t tax too much but replaces it with ladles of fun. There’s nothing like the feeling of escaping full of adrenaline from such a fun filled adventure. It’s one of the those rooms that makes you want to dive back into another game straight away and play more. Luckily for us, that exactly what we had planned!
