Solid if unspectacular game, overall good fun and well themed room, however, somewhat of an overuse of padlocks we felt which at times felt like we were solving puzzles for the sake of solving puzzles at times rather than to achieve the objective of the game.

We did this escape room today. There were nine of us in the party. It was very good. First we were told to watch the safety video and then we were shown a video explaining the story behind the room. I loved it. It was a good experience overall. What could be better? 

We had one hour to escape. There were several locks that required someone to try to open them. Eventually we were able to access the kitchen and find all of the cats. At the end of the game, we posed for photos with one of the employees. The theme of the room was cats. 

We had to ask for help a few times. Apparently we were not the only team who needed assistance to escape the room and find the cats either. It was so much fun though.

great hostingfamily friendlyquite difficult
It may look like it's going to be a hilarity filled ride into the mind of someone obsessed with cats but what lurks is a bit of a fiendish puzzles.  I think the flow breaks in a couple of places as at times we were standing around trying to figure out the next move and we failed right on the last puzzle in a similar way to a room from a couple of years ago where I think it was a potentially ambiguous answer to the final puzzle and that cost us the last few seconds.

value for moneyoriginalfamily friendly

A great way to spend an hour on a rainy Sunday afternoon.  Well set up, accessible to all age groups and our two teams of four had fun doing it.

It is a kooky, cartoony space, not huge but fine for the three of us, full of charming cat-related decor. It might be deliberately kitsch
