Reviews by escape room review sites

Mission: Breakout, better known as 'that escape room in a disused tube station', has the advantage of a spectacular location, with even the initial descent into the venue helping build atmosphere in a way that no normal location can compete with. Where their first game is Blitz themed, their latest uses the tube station setting more directly with a ghostly tale of a passenger who alighted at the closed station and was never seen again.
As TFL-sponsored investigators, your job is to don hard hat...
From start to finish, a game that kept delivering impressive reveals with a real sense of exploring our way through the story. Solid puzzles kept us entertained although we did feel lost on a couple of occasions in the game.

Mission Breakout’s website proclaims their games to be the most immersive in London. While the set and integrated puzzles certainly lend weight to that claim, we don't feel like we can agree

We head down into a disused tube station in north London to investigate the disappearance of a man that mistakenly disembarked there and was never seen again.
