This room definitely has a bit of the wow factor when you enter and I think it has so much potential with some tweaks here and there.

Some of the puzzles left us asking 'why?' and the heavy use of padlocks seemed a little out of place. 

There are spaces in the room that could be used more imaginatively to help create more of an atmosphere and immersion.

I liked this game better than Madame Gazunda but it still lacked any logical flow.

The theming was nice and the owner had built his room with a realistic feel of the underground, this is were our positivity ended. We were given 2 way radios in order to communicate with HQ but this seemed to work patchy at best. The flow was better to this game but some of the puzzles lacked much in the way of sense. 

Again we found the host was less than attentive as at times we were stumped and clues did not arrive, when they did arrive they related to puzzles we had already solved. Some of this game involves searching, which as enthusiasts we are usually pretty bad at now as we aren't always as observant as we used to be.

Again this room likes to use multiple padlocks on one door, which can be frustrating at the best of times. We also found that some of the puzzles would be difficult if you didn't have some knowledge of London geography and underground stations or at least this would be a significant time drain coming towards the end of the game.

Unfortunately this is another one to avoid for us as we had a bad experience all round at Escape Room Scarborough.
