Reviews by escape room review sites

Locked In A Room are the highest capacity escape venue in London, with 13 rooms capable of letting 78 people play simultaneously. That's 13 rooms consisting of duplicate copies of each of two game designs, and of the two Timelock is their easier room.
This is an almost completely linear game. It consists of a series of puzzles, each of which when solved provides a clue for the next, plus any necessary objects. Most puzzles result in a four digit code for a numeric padlock. Within that framework...
A mass-market escape room that's very much geared towards large corporate groups. The puzzles were fairly basic, the room was good but not stunning and the finale didn't excite. Enthusiasts are likely to be disappointed but if you're organising a trip for beginners, they'll have a good time.
