Playing on a separate occasion, I'd agree with those comments, although I'd add in a note of appreciation for the game having more than one room, good puzzle variety, skilful and entertaining hosts, and a refreshing lack of frustration points - generally whenever you've solved a puzzle, it's clear that you've done so.
Compared to the Casino room I did at the same venue immediately beforehand, the game structure is more linear and the content somewhat easier. Experienced teams will find it easy ...
A decently themed game which was generally enjoyable but was badly let down by a flawed puzzle and a broken lock.
Escape London invite you to travel back in time to a top-secret, 1950s laboratory investigating other-worldly happenings in Roswell. Those little grey folk look friendly...
Highly linear, lots of different and new kinds of puzzles to enjoy in a sci-fi themed adventure. Accessible for beginners.
