Intelligence tells us that terrorists have managed to set up a missile in a central London location. We are currently unaware of the location and have been given a number of potential sites but donโ€™t have the required resources to check all of them. Not to cause public fear, we have selected several high profile members of the public to help us. If you find anything suspicious, please investigate the matter further! If you need help let us know. Time is running. Good luck, team!

This game was originally listed as 'Terror Alert in London', and the operators made the sensible decision to rename it when real-world events made the original name appear in questionable taste. In either guise it's a variant on the common bomb defusal theme, with a modern (as in present-day) setting.
Compared to their Alcatraz room the decor starts off on the bland size, though the highlight is spectacular - some beautiful custom technology here.
Adventox again show a good eye for designing ...
A game where things seemed to click for us but where I wouldn't say everything was straightforward. The decoration isn't amazing although there is one impressive centrepiece. It's a fun game but not one that I'd travel across London to play.

Out of the three rooms at Adventox this is by far the weakest. Feeling tired and dated it could do with a bit of a revamp. Couple that with weak puzzles and itโ€™s not a room weโ€™ll be recommending unless youโ€™re really desperate for that escape room fix.

Mission X turns into Mission Xtremely Bad as we play this terrible escape room from Adventox in Shepherd's Bush!
The room you enter in to is very basic which is fine as itโ€™s meant to be an office but the props were very worn, to the extent that weโ€™re sure by now something will have broken.
