My Uni Fam had come to visit, and so it was time for another escape together.
Having sneaked into a closed-down asylum and gotten lost while searching for any spirits floating about…get back out before they capture you. If you want to experience being the star of a horror film centred around stereotypically dumb teenage protagonists, I guess this is your chance.
None really stood out to me. They were your standard selection, and mostly observational.
Only the final section lived up to the room’s title, providing the padded cell surroundings you’d expect to see throughout. Although the rest was still equally immersive, it was simply mild, non-specific horror.
I accidentally terrified one of my friends during the final puzzle, which really made us laugh. If you’re after a frightening challenge, there are scarier ones out there. That being said, it was a solid four-star room that we all enjoyed beating.
As far as theming goes, the last half of the experience was themed very well with some very creepy elements, the first part however was a let down and if you didn't know the theme, it would be tough to decipher what it is.
Escape reality mark this is a 4 star difficulty rating, however i would say that the puzzles are far and few between, without much challenge to them.
As a team of 4, we found some of players sat around not doing anything because there wasn't anything they could be getting on with. reccomend paling this room as either a 2 or a 3 to get the most out of it
