hi-techcleverimmersivequite difficult

A very well built out room with lots of interfaces to play with and very strong theming. Not a single padlock to be found. This was the first room we have failed in a while, it's a lot of work for a group of two. 

A couple of the props were showing signs of wear that gave away parts of the puzzles. and there is one puzzle that would have really benefited from a pen and pencil to make notes. But overall these did not distract too much from the overall quality of the room. 

Our hosts were amazing and obviously huge escape room fans themselves.

I love when a company make full use of the space they have! This is a perfect example of how your rooms do not need to be huge to really challenge your players.

The mission is clear and I always prefer a collecting type game, it always keeps focused!

The room was themed beautifully and the props/set was of good quality.

There was some really imaginative puzzles which require team work and patience!

Our host was fairly new to the company but made an effort to ask about our hobby and was just lovely.

As a side note, there was a Geek Retreat a few doors down so we had a warm up game of Exploding Kittens before saving our Space ship 🌟

Having played "The Warp" series of online games I was quite thrilled to see the actual set of the game.  You are astronaut trainees newly arrived at a space station when, obviously, things go wrong and you only have 60 minutes to air left.  There follows a great logical series of problems coupled with some nasty potential search fails (we had to be clued to one) and a couple of great physical moments I've not seen before, had a fantastic time here.

Interstellar was the second game we played at Trapped In with a sci-fi theme, and the difference was remarkable. Where Time Machine used silver foil and spare electronics as decoration, Interstellar is in a different league. Though not up to Hollywood movie set levels, it presents a thoroughly credible starship interior; and it uses a simple but remarkably successful effect making it feel far larger than it actually is. I also appreciated the way they’d chosen a flooring that completely looked t...

A thoroughly polished game that I'd put right up there as one of the best in the North West. Looks beautiful, lots of puzzles and a very good structure to the game is topped off by a finale that felt it was taken straight from Star Trek.
An immersive and exciting game, filled with physical puzzles and finished off with a high paced final dash around the room. Highly recommended.
