James Bloodworth expert says:

Historical themed game with some hard puzzles at the beginning, recommend more than 2 if you can but we were on the last puzzle when the timer expired, theming is good and the puzzles have a good flow even if its not obvious what you have to do.

Reviews by escape room review sites

A round-up of a couple of trips through Glasgow. Mostly poor experiences with the one highlight being Escape the Past at Pollok House, a room that would stand up reasonably well even if it weren't in a heritage site.
The venue itself is huge, with six games open already. It’s a really neat use of space in the city centre that’s sat empty for a long time now – it’s old office space but just opposite the newly revamped Cathedral Lanes restaurant quarter. It doesn’t still feel like office space though, it’s been well decorated, or least disguised. The whole place beyond the reception area has been done out in black, which gives it a certain laserquest-chic. The reception area itself is large – indeed large enough on this night to be hosting an actual party. We were playing the Jack The Ripper themed room, with the set-up being quite simply to solve the Ripper murders. Should be simple enough.

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. 

A good looking room with a good theme that ran well from one section to the next. Some enjoyable puzzles that really got us thinking, there was one reset issue where a cupboard wasn't closed, meaning that we wasted a bit of time trying to work out what completing a certain had done, despite that, it was a good room and one I enjoyed.
