If you also set a star rating, the star rating won't be shown anywhere but will still be used when calculating the game's overall score on Escape The Review.
If you've watched a recent fantasy series involving houses and dragons then elements of this will be very familiar to you. The king is dead and you have to prove your worth! As with the rest of their rooms, the theming is good with some interesting puzzles, like some of their other rooms, the flow is mostly good but (like Magic Emporium) perhaps some better signposting might help in one or two places but this is still worth your time.
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.

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.
