Reviews by escape room review sites

In an unusual twist, this room isn't about escaping as quickly as possible - instead, you're aiming to escape with as much cash as possible, and the better you do the more you'll get out with.
There's maybe an over-reliance on the 'laminated sheet of A4' type of clue here, and the scoring mechanism is something you could either like or hate. Personally I found it refreshingly different and enjoyed the room a lot. I also really like Enigma Quests' style of (almost) zero padlock room designs.
A pretty game with an outstanding clue system that managed to avoid breaking the immersion. The puzzles were the weak link in the chain - a couple felt a bit tenuous and the final challenge left me disappointed.

The aim of The Million Pound Heist isn’t to escape in the fastest time, it’s to escape with the most money. This is for the best, as we actually missed a vital clue at the end of our game, and walked out of the room thinking we’d finished with a whopping 35 minutes left on the clock. Our Games Master came rushing out to tell us we’d missed something and that we could go back in if we wanted and try to get some more money with our remaining 35 minutes… Oops!
