Every member of The Illuminati has gathered for its Annual General Meeting. Locked away in the Board Room, the higher order had just wrapped up the meeting when the lights suddenly dropped, and one of them killed the King of the Illuminati, otherwise known as Plato!
As junior members of The Illuminati, you and your team will have to gather any evidence from within the Board Room to find out who the killer was, how he or she did it, and where they have scarpered to! However, there may be a sting in the tail of this case which means you will need to be out within the hour, or it will be curtains for everybody!

Jam packed with puzzles, this kept us busy from start to finish. I think we JUST managed to escape in time. 

This company never fails to impress.

A superb room - the puzzles just flowed so well and the game felt really instinctive. The theme was sustained throughout and the tech was flawless. It felt very inventive and designed by people who really love escape rooms. So much fun and a great challenge - would highly recommend this one!

These guys in Halifax are one of the very best! They really do look after you well and get to know you. The theme of this room is so brilliant and the difficulty is tough! So much to do but it really flows well. Excellent all round 🙂

Reviews by escape room review sites

A fun room that looks good and has plenty of enjoyable puzzles. Definitely one I'd recommend if you're in the area.
Another fantastic room from The Escaporium. Great theming, brilliant storyline and an array of really fun puzzles. Not to mention we got to wear robes.
