Reviews by escape room review sites

This is billed as the easiest of Omescape's three London rooms, but it's definitely no walk-over.
The room has high production values and creative props, and more of a story progression than most. I found the puzzles less satisfying than those in Omescape's other rooms, but that may be unfair - I don't remember any specific problems with them.
The easiest game in the Omescape stable, this one lived up to their reputation - a nice progression through the game from easy to more challenging puzzles and a fun set to explore.
The second of two games played in somewhat different circumstances. This time around I’d been asked to book an escape game experience as a team-building exercise at for the day job, and after being let down last minute by another London-based company, we secured bookings with Omescape and clueQuest. Worth noting that in both cases their corporate functions folk were great and helped get us booked in at less than 48 hours’ notice.
A strongly linear adventure with impeccable theming. Limited light means a need to concentrate carefully. Despite being Omescape’s lowest-difficulty room, it’s not one for new players. Puzzles, technology, and build quality are excellent with virtually no reliance on padlocks and not a key in sight. Five players is probably too many.
