The set for this escape room was impressive, with a cabin theming.
There were a variety of puzzles to complete and going between different sections of the cabin to complete them (although it's not a very big space).
Our main issue with the game was that we had completed 99% of the puzzles and were stuck on the last element for the last 10 minutes of our time. We were so close to the end but were not given clues to help us finish. We think this is because of the building that Breakout Chester is in, where the games master has to climb multiple floors/steps between the game and where they are observing. Out host was standing outside the door at 60 minutes whilst we stood like lemons not knowing what to do next for a long time. It was a rather frustrating end when we had one element left of the whole game.
Looking back, we left feeling very bitter as it was our first ever loss and felt unjustified but we have since recovered from the saltiness (just about...).
Forsaken was one of my first ever breakout rooms and left me with a really good memory of breakout, it's definitely a theme that's been done before but really enjoyed this interpretation as well as a few good puzzles.
Loved this room. The theming was great and the room had a great creepy atmosphere. The story and puzzles flowed well and all fit the theme of the room. Only thing I would say is to up the creepiness further but that's down to personal taste. Great fun room!
#6 / #56
One of the best rooms Breakout Chester has to offer in my opinion. We were so close to escaping but spend the last two minutes with the final clue scratching our heads - our fault, not theirs! A creepy vibe to this room really sets the atmosphere, was a lot of fun if a little difficult for novices. Definitely recommend this!
- After a return visit a few years later, we managed to escape! Still holds up, worth a visit.
