Maybe the chest was locked to protect YOU from whatever’s inside.
You opened the chest anyway. And a board game started taking over your home.

Based on the filmed Jumanji we was excited to play this.  The rooms flowed well and everyone had plenty to do, my o ly negative was that you had access to info before you needed it so before entering we was giving quite complicated instructions advising us to write things down if we get any information as we could late need this information.  You don't quite know what this info is so are not prepared to write it down but then you only get q chance further along the line at getting something correct, I'm not quite sure what you do if you didn't hear the thing the first time, it was all a bit xo fusing to be honest.  Secondly, as mentioned in another review, as you're getting down to the final seconds, it would be amazing if they were to play the jungle drums getting louder and louder, this would've really built the tension when doing that q final thing and then a final loud fanfare or something but there was just a small voice that we couldn't really hear to say we'd been successful and the gm came in.  A shame as it could've been made quite spectacular in those few last seconds.  Despite this, an imersive room with mostly logical, good puzzles, fun for all of the family.

Fun jumanji inspired room with the usual puzzles you'd expect for a homage to the film/game. Well themed and puzzles are all logical, and the game plays well.

Based on a popular mid 90's film about a board game..  Good fun and mostly straight forward.

A decent game but can't help feeling like the first room is very similar to Nethercott Manor at Tulleys, even down to a few of the puzzles. The rest of the room is better and more unique, although the puzzles are rather average. Worth playing

Don't be fooled by the lack of reviews on here. This has to be amongst one of the best rooms we have played. It is tucked away off Gillingham High Street and we were stunned by how immersive and high quality the room was. We will definitely be going back to do their other room really soon!

Reviews by escape room review sites

A pair of enjoyable games. Pick The Game if you want something light-hearted with a cool sense of adventure or Hypnos if you want the more impressive puzzles.
Great fun for adults and kids, but between the theme, the set, and the types of puzzles and tasks throughout The Game, this room is one of our top picks if you’re looking for something the entire family can get involved with
The room itself in terms of decor has some good pieces in it. It’s maybe not as eye-catching as some games when you first walk in but it makes complete sense for the theme and it works really well. 
This is certainly a room where paying attention is key - communicate with your team and listen closely to the what you see and hear. Don't be lulled into a false sense of comfort in this room and the time ticks away quicker than you think. This is certainly a room that the team and I will not be forgetting in a hurry - for a great hours worth of entertainment, this is sure to be a real family favourite.
