Quite a basic room and showing its age, especially compared to their newer rooms - but it's still fun to play and the hosts are great. The puzzles "clicked" for us and we set a new room record!

Not all puzzles were on theme, but they were very varied. It's the oldest room but certainly worth playing. 

Go ahead and get the enthusiast package and play them all, the hosts are amazing.

Reviews by escape room review sites

The theme is a classic one for escape rooms of course and this is where it all started for Tricky Escapes. The decor is quite basic but that does actually emulate a prison quite well โ€“ the representation of a cell was done nicely with investment in some pretty realistic props.
