How appropriate, a room based on finding the vaccine to a global pandemic! You are in a lab environment and have to solve some lab based puzzles, some clever technology is used to good effect and the perennial periodic table makes another appearance. I wasn't a fan of the final puzzle and we got out with 3 seconds to spare and it was literally a guess. Space is a little confined and some of the locks might be confusing if you've never seen the type before.
I’m sad to hear that Escape Blackpool is no longer open, as this was an impressive room.
You and your fellow scientists have contracted a virus that’s killing the world. Create a vaccine and escape the locked-down laboratory before it’s incinerated! A scenario that I now know is very, very common in the world of escape rooms, but this was my first time saving the world from a deadly disease.
This was a very tricky room! There were several clever features and quirky uses of apparatus that you’d expect/hope to see in a lab-themed escape.
Very white, very polished, very lab-like! The props provided appropriate touches: science utensils, reading material and gear. I love any room where outfits are given, and so the lab coats were appreciated.
We only received one hint from our Game Operator, and this was on how/where to use a particular tool. She clearly knew exactly what time(s) teams need a hint. It was a good room for a team of both beginners and more experienced players.
