Mr Blofielt has been hiding a secret. A dark secret. His son is, the lord of darkness and hell!
Using his devilish powers, Luther has trapped a certain angel inside a mausoleum. Unfortunately for us, this same angel was the one responsible for keeping the Lincoln Imp imprisoned in stone. The imp is now running riot and trashing a church near the mausoleum and we have no way of subduing him.
We need you, our special agents, to release the angel from her imprisonment, as only she has the power to turn the Imp back into stone, allowing you to retrieve the scoundrel.
We would rate this rooms difficulty at a 5 out of 5! (5 Being Hardest)

Definitely one of the more basic rooms we’ve played but did still give us some satisfaction as we pieced together puzzles and solved things. Game flow felt a bit lost at times. 

I think compared to other escape rooms it was quite plain, and at times felt like it was a case of lowering the lights to try and hide the lack of set design and to make puzzles more difficult. This made it a little harder to feel immersed in the game, as it very clearly felt like a simple room containing a few props and bits of furniture rather than the story that the game was trying to tell. 

The host was friendly enough, didn’t seem quite as passionate as other hosts we’ve had but was very accommodating for our last minute booking.

I will find myself repeating this with Tension. Rooms are so basic with very little tech, alot that don't match the theme but this is one of the better rooms. A bit more of a flow. I would choose this over the others.

Very basic room. Need updating to compete with rooms that are nearby or even rooms that are now becoming expected of within the escape room biz. Low immersion. Basic storytelling. Easily forgettable 

Too dark in places to see properly.

A tired and cheap,  looking room  with broken or tired puzzles. Terrible hosting, we were ignored when we asked for hints and I don’t agree that removing lights to make it impossible to see a padlock is a puzzle.

great hostingfamily friendlyintense

This is the hardest room at TTR Lincoln but we got stuck on one particular puzzle, probably by thinking too hard on the puzzle rather taking a step back and simply looking at it.  Great host

Reviews by escape room review sites

There was more to do in this room in terms of amount and variety of puzzles and that it branches off so we were occupied longer, rather than crowding around one puzzle, which can be an issue for our team of 5.
