quite difficult
Creepy hotel theme not bad, could be better. Some good puzzles, but one puzzle was a little too long winded for our liking.

great hostingfun

#2

Fun enough, but the set is a bit tired and low budget.  Typical of a Breakout room, I would suggest Forsaken or Forgotten Tomb instead if you’re heading to Breakout.

Another fun room from Breakout. Thought it was going to be very dark and creepy based on the website description but it was actually quite well lit (has a window looking outside). Nice mix of puzzle styles so it gave everyone something to be able to excel at and a couple of tricker parts to slow down the group.

This is a very easy room for those who played before, so would definitely recommend for first time players

 At least you know what you're getting with breakout once again it was a very generic detective themed room which we managed to accidentally skip a few puzzles, what still a escaped with a good time

value for moneygood themingsmall space😨creepy

Solid theming set in a hotel/motel room. Has a creepy feel throughout that is well delivered. A mixture of puzzles and searching push this linear room along.

We played this room as an unexperienced 2, and got out just in time. We literally swiped the exit key card at 59.59!

A very traditional style escape room with a couple of small rooms but good theming.

Not a bad room and there are definitely better in Cardiff, but if you need a room to do then this is a decent contender
