Another excellent Escape Hunt room! These guys go all out! The start of this game was really unusual! Felt a bit claustrophobic but it did add to the experience. Loved the help system and the way the games master keeps things immersive!

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

The theming of this room is brilliant, it all makes sense and the theme follows from room to room. 

The puzzles were all related to the theme, with some original puzzles that we'd never encountered before. 

Our GM was brilliant and very quick to assist when we needed it (I think we only had one clue, but she pointed us in the right direction without just straight up telling us the answer). 

In terms of difficulty I don't think it was that hard, just the one task that had us stumped. 

Great room, great host, give it a go.

We had a really good morning escaping from The Last Samourai. The Escape Hunt Birmingham have a lovely lobby area where you want to seat down and plan your next escape for hours.

First game at Escape hunt and probably the last. In fairness, the host was great but the room was terrible. It wasn’t an escape room, more so a series of time wasting tasks in which when you completed it, the operator pressed a button for you. Props in the room were very well used, and for a higher priced game, is not really acceptable.

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'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...

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