This is not what I would call a horror room despite it containing some of the tropes, this is a relatively fun flowing room with a couple of puzzles to scratch your heads and some clever props used in a way I'd not seen before.

There is a puzzle near the start of this room which requires objectively the wrong answer in order to progress.  If you know how a particular board game works then you will, like us, spend 15-20 minutes checking your workings before asking for a clue.  Really disappointing.

The iPad system with time penalties for each clue were a downside for me in this game, but one I am able to look past.

The first of 4 in our day in Coventry, an enjoyable room that really gave the feeling of a run down asylum. Some very clever puzzles that got you thinking a little outside of the box, if you can look past the iPad system and time penalties it is well worth a visit.
