Clever use of tech, combined with more physical classic escape room puzzles. A very small space - the smallest room Iโ€™ve done - but used well. A nicely dramatic finale as well. Probably best with 2 or 3 people as I think it would get a bit cramped with more.

The host (can't remember his name sorry I suck at names) was very friendly and clearly very knowledgeable about escape games.

A fun game that, in spite of starting off in a slightly pedestrian manner, continues to improve throughout and is well into its stride for the finale. A few of the early puzzles felt like filler, but the majority of challenges were plenty of fun, and there was good player feedback throughout.
