The amazing Houdini’s marvellous collection of wonders that will leave you mesmerized: Take a visit to the lost testing room of Harry Houdini, Wexell’s former employee and head of ‘befuddlement’ (a job title retired with the late Houdini’s passing). You and your team are taken on a tour of the workshop and are given the opportunity to test yourself against the great man’s skill.
This is ideal for smaller teams, those that want a little something different, or nervous ‘escapers’; there’s nothing in this room that should scare you, but beware, not everything is as straight forward as it first looks and participants may start their games physically restrained.

First warning, don't take more than 3 as it's a small space, but the space is used cleverly and delivers an interesting series of puzzles, the theming isn't great and the story isn't really there but I had a fun time in this room so I do recommend it.

We venture into Harry Houdini's testing room where we need to test ourselves against the magicians skill.
Harry Houdini. The Great Houdini, “world famous jailbreaker and Handcuff King”, master of mystery, icon of escapology. Basically, this guy should be the patron saint of Escape Rooms. One of the strongest venue brands in the country is named after him. But actual Houdini-themed games?
