While I guess by normal standards it's pretty weird to go to a seaside town and spend the whole day indoors, the quality of the five games I played across the two escape companies in Margate was so high that I had no qualms about missing the beach. Of those five, The Pit is the newest game from The Escapement and was the one I found most impressive of all, an ambitious subterranean adventure with a Hollywood disaster movie plot where you need to descend into the depths to restart the rotation of...
A truly impressive game that will immerse you in the world they've created. With a visually astounding set and a cool story concept, it was only the puzzles where this room showed its weakness.
Even when you're receiving the briefing for this room you know it is going to be something special. This isn't just a 60 minute experience, this is a game changer.

If you can overlook the fact that you'll be going "thousands of feet deep" through a short flight of stairs , the game area looks quite realistic (...) Even though there are plenty of old-fashioned puzzles to solve and locks to open, the overall series of tasks the team needs to complete will feel quite organic, and the game had a few surprises in store for us.

An outstanding room with great puzzles, atmosphere, theming and game master makes The Pit an unmissable game. I’m delighted to give it a rare five star rating. You should travel to play this game.
