Our crew of 4 members escaped in June 2017 and thoroughly enjoyed the room. The atmosphere and theme was well respected but were disappointed when realised that there was not going to be a second room (and for some reason I was waiting to see all along where the second room was hidden haha). I really enjoyed their style and I'm hoping to try one of their other rooms in the future!

The second game we played at Escape Time is also the second one created by the venue (at time of writing, they've just announced their upcoming third game), and has a Wild West theme. That's a style of game that seems curiously neglected by escape room designers, but which works very well, as Sam's Saloon demonstrates.
Whereas their Bank Heist game has multiple smaller areas, here the game takes place in a single large self-contained area, and it's refreshing to have such a big space to move ar...
Sam’s Saloon Bar has the most convincing looking fake pints I’ve yet seen in a room. Which made the disappointment all the more real when this turned out to be another bar-based game that’s actually entirely dry. I mean, obviously I get that no-one wants drunk people playing their, or indeed any potential for spillage, but one day I’d like a game that threw caution to the wind and allowed or even encouraged drinking…
