quite difficult

Great looking room. Good theming and immersive. Some really nice use of tech throughout. 

There were 2 puzzles which really slowed us down during the game and we struggled to understand due to big logical leaps but everything else flowed well.

The rating as the hardest room at Doncaster was well judged.  Complex room with lots of thinking and commncation required.

First off, make no mistake this is a hard room requiring several leaps of logic across its components, we dithered for ages in the first part, flew through the second and I'm still not sure how we solved the third.  It's easy to miss things as well (black things labelled in black on a black background, etc).  This is a suitable technical room where everything releases with switches and maglocks.

This room was Incredibly hard. The puzzles in it were really difficult and even with 5 of us we struggled. It involves a lot of thinking outside the box, and calculations. There was a lot of indepth reading to do, and it wasnt incredibly clear what to do. The kicker was the Key Card we were supposed to be finding, was stuck and hidden out of the way so we didnt see it when we were supposed to!!

Reviews by escape room review sites

A weak start plagued by ambiguity meant the Heist never got going in spite of its no-padlock promise and pretty lay out.
