Escapetopus experienced says:

A unique location for an escape room venue lends itself to a very effective Victorian explorer theme. A beautifully decorated room conceals a lot of modern technology which all works well in service of the unfolding story. One of the narratively strongest games I’ve played, but not at the expense of providing fun puzzles with plenty of variety.

A challenge for two but I think it would work well with a bigger group.

This is explained in the booking confirmati...
The highlight of a 20-game New Year's Eve trip, Lightning in a Bottle is filled with good harder-than-average puzzles, fun theatre and a pretty set.
