There was one padlock which had not been reset which left us unable to progress before receiving two clues enabling us to work out that is what happened. The bigger complaint is that there is no sign posting between the many padlocks and the puzzles leaving you continually trying the code in 4 places at a time (or 5 had the other padlock been in place). Other rooms I have played with this problem simply add a mark of some form on each puzzle. It is also not clear which puzzles are in play which is another avoidable issue, eg with lighting.
My first escape room, arrived 15 minutes late but I was hooked from the first game 😀
Reviews by escape room review sites
It had been a while since I’d visited Escape London’s Shepherds Bush branch, and I was pleased to find they’ve upgraded their entrance: the venue is still down a narrow staircase, but it’s now a much more attractively appointed staircase, fronted by a more clearly marked doorway. The Escape franchise tends to operate multiple copies of its games in different branches, but as one of its newer games Overthrone currently only operates in London, Leicester and Basildon.
The name reflects the game’s...
Their ‘Overthrone’ room is a vaguely medieval, slightly mythical themed room – it’s like combining the legends of Arthur and Camelot with the Tudors. The brief we are given is that the king is dead and his nobles are out to kill you next – to stop them you need to find the crown and sceptre and sit on the throne.
The second room we did in our day out at Escape Basildon, a very different room, but equally impressive as the first, room designed beautifully, and looked amazing, some tricky puzzles, but all very good. Definitely worth the trip.
