Really enjoyed the room purely because our 7 year old could play a scary room but wasn’t actually too scared. Looked after and it was enjoyable.
Relatively easy, played with a 7 year old who wasn't scared. Simple format of a room
Quite a straight forward fun but good fun! Would be great with kids
Fab room which has excellent theming and some interesting and clever puzzles to solve.
We found this one quite easy, I think that it is the starter recommended game at Doncaster. We did vists during / post Covid rules so some of the experience may have been reduced based on the 'new rules'. Still a good game and one to try...
So this is the easier room of Doncaster's Enigma of the four they have available, and despite the name, is family friendly (other than a bit of darkness at the beginning) Speaking to our host Nick, this seems to be the game that kids, for whatever reason, just love, and come out 'buzzing'.
For us, at this point, we'd played a few escape rooms, and the puzzle were fairly easy (probably another reason kids love it) but were not too easy, and we did get stumped on one thing for a good 10 minutes before the penny dropped. There is also one aspect of this game that I have never seen, and at time of writing this, still havent seen, in any other escape room, for those that have played it, you already know, but it was genius, and although this was another part of the game that stumped us, we certainly applauded Enigmas thinking on it.
Like I say, for enthusiasts, its probably going to be an easy game, basic build, but still clever, theming sort of irrelevant, as the storyline is you've been taken hostage and thrown in a dark room...but still works, ideal for first timers, and families that are not scared of the dark.
