Sometimes, there is nothing better than a really well put together room stuffed with padlocks and that is what Mafia is. We tore through it because it was instinctive and not because it was easy, which it certainly isn't - this is packed with puzzles and lovely nods to the theme. A super game.

This is currently the latest room for Enigma Doncaster, and its a great one. If you have played the other rooms at Doncaster, this one will make you say 'wow' just as you walk in. 

Theming was great throughout, and some nice little bits that we didn't expect. The puzzle were challenging in some parts of the game, but easy-wins, in others. I don't think anything was unachievable though. With that said, we failed to get out, and were stuck on the last puzzle, and we were annoyed at ourselves for, because when the host, Laura, told us the solution, we could have kicked ourselves for not thinking about it.

I think the puzzles are a bit too challenging for youngsters, but its still a  family friendly atmosphere. We really enjoyed this room, and so glad we decided to play it.

A fun room with a lot of ER tropes but presented well with some great theming.  This would be a great room for beginners whilst still raising a smile for enthusiasts.

Reviews by escape room review sites

A beautifully presented game with a great opening scene and fun puzzles. The challenges weren't particularly original but they did the job. A great beginners' room that will still entertain enthusiasts.
