I think this is my favourite game so far (ever). The theming is very well done, and it's just really good fun. The puzzles were the right amount of annoying!
Only minor quibble is that we did manage to irretrievably lose a component that meant we had to be given the solution to that puzzle, although I imagine they've addressed that since we did the room.
I loved this. This has been my favourite so far (our of 6). There was a nice big surprise for us in this room, which I don't want to spoil here! There was one puzzle that annoyed me, as the maths involved ignored BODMAS, so I feel like it was dumbed down. I really like that this game has an option to escape, or stay to win treasure!! We stayed. We nearly got locked in because of it, but we did escape with the treasure!
Heavy on content, also heavy on locks. Good visual theming and use of audio. On a number of occasions, very good prop/puzzle theming.
Was very dark to begin with, not certain if it became lighter because of story progression, or our GM realised we were overlooking a couple of obvious things in the room (we were told to ask for more light if we were struggling before the room started).
The entry door notes that the door stays locked until 5 minutes before the room booking time. It is possible that I may have missed it in the correspondence, but I wasn't aware of this, and it left us awkwardly standing around in the train arches until the unlock time.
Certainly worth a visit if nearby, would recommend more than 2 people as there is a lot to do. Just don't turn up too early!!
