You are the chosen few who must accept this challenge. Other members of your notorious organisation have entered earlier that night, but their efforts proved to be unsuccessful. Working with the clues they have left behind, and your extensive plan to gain access to the high security areas, your team is ready. All security cameras have been disabled for the next hour. You have 60 minutes to locate and steal the diamond before the cameras turn back on and you are caught!

More Bank Bustin’

This was another occasion where I introduced a newbie to the wonderful world of escape rooms. He’s since been hooked, and so this one must have done a good job of enthralling him!

Story

Steal a big shiny diamond from a bank.

Puzzles

There was lot of calculating and translating numbers into codes, as well as a couple more interactive puzzles. A fun mixture.

Mise-en-scène

There was a very lifelike and absorbing start and finish to this room, lending a sense of flow and progression to fit in with the story. From the big main features such as furniture and room layout, to the minor details like the smallest props, this room was on the money in terms of design.

Final Comments

Four-stars is a fair difficulty rating, but this room could be enjoyed as a pair or in a group of three to four. Another diamond to add to my collection.

The theming of this room was absolutely brilliant, innovative ways to move on to the next rooms and a great exit to the room too. 

one puzzle had us stumped for a while and to be honest, it was one of them very tedious puzzles that you know is a puzzle but you just dont want to even try and work out what to do with it. 

The rest of the room was outstanding, however they had one of my biggest bug bares... a puzzle that is no longer working in the room but they have still left the signposting and the props in place. we knew instantly that something wasn't right because the door was already open but nonetheless, the puzzle elements should be removed. they did confirm at the end that the puzzle is broken and they are removing it at some point so dont let this throw you off

Something went badly wrong with this game.  I'm still not sure whether a padlock was in the wrong place or whether it was left unlocked.  We escaped with several puzzles left uncompleted.  In fairness, we received a credit note for our spoiled game, but the game host wasn't especially interested in working out what had gone wrong.

We were disappointed with this game, it wasn’t very immersive and felt very frustrating at times.
