The two coins clinked together in your pocket as you stumble down the cold pavement. Yesterday, you were sleeping on the cobbles of Museum Gardens, icy winds smashing against your face. Today, you’ve been told you’re the heir to a huge inheritance, left to you by an old lady across the road. This may sound like a rags to riches fairytale, but before the celebrations begin you must prove yourself worthy. There’s just one catch. The court has authorised the demolition of the property. You have an hour to find the riches before the house and your dreams are reduced to rubble.

Theming very basic but passable. Parts of the game are starting to look a bit tired it was… okay.

It's....fine. It's a bit tired, some bits are broken, some bits are a bit illogical. Don't think the theming particularly works.

We really liked this room - it flows nicely and the puzzles are well designed. The puzzles fit in really well with the theme and it was a really enjoyable escape.

Reviews by escape room review sites

Of our team of semi-enthusiasts (with between 5 – 100 escape rooms between us), we all agreed on one thing – that we had a fantastic time. Plenty of puzzles we’d never encountered before, and lots of very cool props used in interesting ways. Add in some bonus points for how much we enjoyed the theme and the decor, and it’s a winning formula. Rags to Riches is definitely a hidden gem escape room in York.
