Escape Hunt is a name that enthusiasts may recognise from escaping trips abroad: they have venues in more than two dozen cities around the globe. They used to have a location in London, which shut down some years ago; but they've now re-launched in three UK cities with at least another three due to open. I didn't have a hugely favourable impression of their original London location, but early feedback on their new UK games was a lot more positive, so I was pleased to make a visit to their...
A solid game but one which, for me, never really took off with temperamental tech in the middle, use of technology that looked out of place for the theme, and a finale that was a bit flat. Nothing to ruin the game but enough to take the edge off of it.
I don’t know how this version compares with the six others country-wide, but we were pleased with the staging without being blown away

Overall, this was an outstanding escape room. If you only do one in your life, this might be a contender. If you want to do a lot and are looking for somewhere to start… honestly maybe don’t do this one first. I have a feeling it would make any subsequent ones you do a little less engaging.
