I believe every companies have their very own different style of escape room and Clue HQ has very distinctive atmosphere and type of clues, either you are in Warrington or in Liverpool. We escaped Detonation in July 2018 with a crew of 4 members and we had a lot of fun. The ending is suprising and effective but I regretted that the host helped us maybe a bit too much specifically on the very last clue. The room itself is quite small so I would not recommend it for more that 4 people, but quite enjoyable really!
Another escape with family, and my mother's first, though she was only in it for the photo at the end!
Having received intel on notorious criminal Danny Badd's current location, try to catch him...but don't get blown up. 'Danny Badd' seems to be a recurring character throughout Clue HQ's games.
Easy-peasy, though there was one physical challenge that was practically impossible. I was applying a lot of knowledge from my past escapes, and so none of the puzzles here felt all that original. A hint was needed for the final challenge, but it was a 'blink and you miss it' kind of moment.
I'm not sure where we were actually supposed to be. 'Rooms with puzzles in' is accurate, so don't expect to be transported to a criminal mastermind's hideout.
Nothing to write home about. An ideal room for newbies.

Not the most elegant of rooms you'll play, but looks OK, some good puzzles, but also some bits which were easily overlooked, the first half of the room definitely looked more impressive than the second half, user error with a pretty ancient tv/dvd player meant that one code couldn't be learned in the desired way. A quirky game that felt a bit dated now and could do with a revamp.
