Your team participated in an experiment that aimed to prove the possibility of time travelling using microwave photons. The phenomenon quantum tunnelling seemed to be succeeding when something went wrong and the prisms you were experimenting with exploded. The explosion created a time loop. As a side effect you all lost your memories and you keep losing them as the time loop repeats itself, every 60 minutes. To break the loop and restore the damage you caused, you need to leave the β€œcontaminated” room as you are part of the glitch in time and space. The only problem is: no one remembers the security code of the door...

It was OK. A bit of fun. It's been achieved on a budget and the puzzles are good, although if I'm perfectly honest, there were a couple of puzzles I never worked out, even after it was explained to me. We also weren't sure if we finished it, or if the door just randomly opened.

It was good in terms of being able to split up and multi-tasking as a team. I like that. And puzzles without padlocks. I liked that too.

Reviews by escape room review sites

Honestly, I was just happy to get out of the room alive. Before I could even concentrate on the terrible decor of this room I was drawn to the electrical points that seemed to be hanging from the wall, and the wires that were all over the place in an unsightly mess. The room itself seemed to be stuck in a time loop, back in the late 90's, when I imagine the building was initially condemned. There were a few good puzzles, but unfortunately this was not able to save the room for me. 

I honestly wouldn't recommend this room to anyone, experienced or nocice, it's an experience you can live without
