This was my second room and as a 2 the separating element really bothered me. I had no idea what to do or look for and it ruined it for me. I hope if I return to Chester, and it’s still open, I could enjoy it more
I can imagine this game being better for enthusiasts than first timers. I played this in my early escape room days along with my wife who had never played. It just wasn't enjoyable due to the separation. Theming was brilliant however
Didn't care for the game. The first part of the game was good, however the rest of the game was a little lacklustre for me.
Played ampitheater with a team of four, with two people being experienced in two people never playing before, which became quite frustrating as we were split up like that.
Overall we really enjoyed the game but did find a few puzzles frustrating, you can clearly see that this is one of escapisms older games as their newer games have a much higher standard of quality.
Love the original theme for this room. Playing off the history of Chester. However the room itself felt quite cheaply made and wasn't that immersive. Even though it was a 5/5 difficulty rated room on their website we found it quite easy and breezed through a lot of the puzzles. Some felt like they didn't really fit the theme/narrative of the room but the others worked well and seemed to flow well enough. Had a great time and managed to escape in a decent time as well.
A fun room with an enjoyable theme, we don’t normally like SPOILERS— being split up at the start, but it didn’t last too long. Possibly because one of the puzzles hadn’t been reset properly, this didn’t bother us too much though. A few tired props here and there, and the monitor stuck out like a sore thumb against the set decoration, but it was still good fun, and had a few quirks.
We escaped this room in February 2018 just my partner and I and escaped in a bit more than 30 minutes. The room was a bit easy for us and there were not that many puzzles. We may have cheated in the first area of the escape room without realising, which probably indicates that the puzzle was not correctly built as we managed to skip it by mistake. Good for a team of 2!
