This game was absolutely outstanding, the most I have enjoyed a room for ages. Puzzles completely on theme and varied, great set dressing, hilarious GM (Adam) who played his role to perfection, so many clever touches in place. Intense theatrical ending. One puzzle looked slightly frustrating for a pair but there was an element of choice with what was needed for completion and we ended up bypassing it in the end. Totally deserving of its nomination in the TERPECAs.
I've been looking forward to doing The Pit since i've begun on my Escape Escapades and i was not disappointed. Exhilarating Adventure that manages to get your Adrenaline rushing by the End. A must do for anyone!
This was the first room I've done and now I have been addicted to escape room since
Story - the earth stopped spinning in 2012 and your goal is to go in the mine and make the earth spin again otherwise the world will ran out of oxygen.
Theming - one of the best theming I've ever seen in an escape room. The prop look so realistic, you felt like you're in a mine I was so impressed!
Puzzle - some of the puzzle was very creative and logical which I did enjoyed. A few padlock was in the room which was bonus. There was 2 puzzles that I found quite frustrating but it didn't ruin the experience.
Clue system - via walkie talkie
Positive - the staff were really nice and very supportive throughout our experience. The theming was amazing, I wore a mining hats to make our experience alot better and some creative puzzles. There was mixture of non linear and linear puzzles.
Negative - there was 2 stressful puzzle that made me a tiny bit frustrating and the room got quite hot but we did this in August so that might not be their fault.
Overall experience - I absolutely enjoyed my time in the pit I was smiling throughout my time at escapement I recommend to anyone in Kent to do this room you won't be dissapointed.
Great theming throughout, with everything you need to do feeling like something you’d actually do in a mine, not a puzzle. Very dramatic finale.
Not suitable for claustrophobic people, but highly recommended for everyone else!
We got out of this really quickly but by pure fluke- we wiggled some things when we were trying to work them out and somehow got out within 40 minutes. This made it a bit underwhelming for us as we felt that there weren't enough tasks. I'd definitely like to go back and try the other rooms though.
