Nicely themed room, with plenty of automation - but very short for anyone but new players. Even with plenty of mistakes we escaped in 35 minutes. With a few more puzzles this would be a very solid room.

A beautifully themed room with plenty to do. A lot of unique puzzles throughout.

broken techpoor hostingquite difficult

We made the mistake to attempt this room in their first week of opening. Tech was broken, some locks were open, some clues were placed in the wrong locations. We just had an absolute nightmare.

If you're visiting Escape Hunt, I'd highly recommend their other rooms that are excellent.

Reviews by escape room review sites

I'd add a warning that this is a room well suited to playing as a pair, which could work less with with a bigger group - an early puzzle could become a frustrating bottleneck, since it's potentially time consuming and can only be tackled by one person at a time, and the rest is fairly linear. Most enthusiast pairs will also find it an entirely approachable level of difficulty.
Playing the same game on a later occasion and in a different location (Oxford), I found the aesthetics quietly appealin...
A solid game across the board - storyline, decoration, puzzles and finale were all good. If you want something that pushes the boundaries of escape rooms then go elsewhere but if it's enough to just be good throughout then it's a great choice.

I have to admit, The Fourth Samurai wasn’t ever going to be my immediate choice of the Escape Hunt games
