β€œI’m all in”. It is these three simple words which would change the life of Ralph Clark forever.
A loving family man who had also carved a successful career as a bank manager, Ralph seemingly had the perfect life to everyone around him. However, having been introduced to the game of Texas Hold’Em by someone he had recently met at a banking convention, it soon became apparent that a passion for gambling had been born. This passion somewhat turned into an addiction, as Ralph would find himself in high stake cash games in back street clubs, as he looked to continue feeding the adrenaline rush each winning hand would bring. Ralph felt invincible when at the poker table.
That was until the harsh reality would prove otherwise in the most extreme of ways – after suffering a bad beat, Ralph had made it his mission that night to get revenge over the player in question. However anger would cloud judgement, and instead of winning his money back Ralph found himself bleeding his family savings away, and then in a desperate plea to win it back, a rush of blood to the head led to him gambling away the family home.
Feeling uncontrollable anger and guilt, Ralph could only see one possible solution to rectify the mess he had caused. Through these games, Ralph had become associated with Vinny Gallows - a successful businessman by trade, however this wasn't how Vinny had accumulated the majority of his wealth, as he also operated a notorious undercover gang on the side.
Given that he knew the bank's security system inside out, Ralph had gone to Vinny with a proposal - break into the bank after hours, steal the contents of the vault, and split any earnings between them, before Ralph and his family would abscond into the wilderness before creating a new identity for themselves, in the hope that they would never be seen again.
You have been selected by Vinny to undertaken the task in hand. The main security override system has been remotely disabled however this can only be held for 60 minutes – with Vinny and Ralph assisting from an external location during the raid, you have the tools to succeed.

We love a good 'heist-type' room, so we were very excited to play this as our 300th Escape room! The variety of puzzles was great and it was a fantastic use of the space! Our games master was lovely and totally made our day with a surprise 'happy 300th' at the end of this game! Highly recommend all of the rooms at Deliverance!

story-drivenillogicalquite difficult

Not a room we would normally chose but the last of the rooms at deliverance and the other 3 were brilliant. This time Matt wasn't working so we had a difference host, this changed the dynamic completely which we didn't like, and they were too giving with clues when we didn't want them. Great puzzles as always but half way through became a little illogical and didn't seem to flow. Could of been our fault but something felt off. Beginning and end were great. Our least favorite of the rooms here but put that partially down to matt the owner not being our host for this one, his story telling and immersion  is second to none so we missed out

As a team  that are not Bank Heist fans, this was an exception. We really enjoyed all aspects of this game in particular the heist part itself. 

Again some fun puzzles, challenging but not so hard that a beginner couldnt get there and some great hidden gems. 

Again highly recommend.

This was the first we’ve done with the scoring besides the timer. It was quite well done and there were some quite unique puzzles and elements to the game. It felt like half was almost traditional style puzzles, the other half quite unique tech elements that were well done.

Escaped with 5.2m thanks to two small errors of planning by us! 

You can tell Matt has put a lot of effort into his rooms and it shows - will keep an eye on this venue as would happily go do any others that might appear in future.

By far the best bank heist room we have played! Extremely well themed, puzzles suited the environment very well and the flow of the game was excellent. Some really clever twists in the plot that serve to make this a cut above the average bank robbery game.

The ending has been cleverly done to ensure maximum adrenaline pumping and a real sense of urgency to escape. Thoroughly enjoyed this room!!
